J.D. Robb is the psuedonym of Nora Roberts, the number one New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred novels. With more than 300 million copies of her books in print, and 144 New York Times bestsellers to date, Nora Roberts is indisputably the most celebrated women's fiction writer today.
In the second of this futuristic mystery series, protagonist New York police Lieutenant Eve Dallas looks for a serial killer of prominent career women. Eve tenaciously follows the clues whether they imperil her romantic relationship with a millionaire or her beloved job. Truth and justice are the goals she works resolutely toward and that lead her finally to solve the case, save the life of a friend, and command the respect of her tall, dark, handsome lover. If the supporting characters are somewhat stereotypical and the ending easy to predict, the humor and imaginative slice of mid-21st-century life provide scope for the reader's talents. Cristine McMurdo-Wallis gives an enjoyable performance as she adeptly portrays the energetic, idealistic, and dogged detective. She impersonates the characters with confidence and style, whether it is the crusty commander, the shattered daughter of one of the victims, the ambitious, uninhibited journalist, or Eve's cagey Irish lover.
