Series In Death #6

In a time when technology links the law and the lawless, predators and prey can be one and the same...

He is an expert with the latest technology ... a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit--always solved moments too late to save his victims' lives.

Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past--a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? the continued development of the characters

What I liked the Least? Hmmm do you really think they are that stupid?

Review: The killer calls Eve & taunts her with a riddle – easily solved – and she rushes to the scene to find an old acquaintance of Roarke’s (from his Dublin days) eviscerated in his penthouse apartment.

It came together quickly that the killer was from the past and that the ultimate target would be Roarke himself, but the getting there was sooooo much fun. This book had tons of reasons to recommend it.
  1. Built upon the open story line from Immortal in Death – the continuation was excellent
  2. McNabb’s introduction & style
  3. Ireland – gotta love the visit if not the cause
  4. Summerset’s attitude – Eve’s doing all she can and he’s still doubtfull of her

Recommended to: Fans of the Series

Best Quote: “No one ever loved me before you. I didn’t think I’d ever get used to it, and maybe I won’t. But I’ve gotten to depend on it.”
