Amarylis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she’s been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she’s taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn’t just one of us.

Dallas’s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris and Coltraine had started a serious relationship, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone from Coltraine’s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on Coltraine’s life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.

The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve containing Coltraine’s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: “You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I’ll be sending yours to somebody else.”

But Eve Dallas doesn’t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that’s a promise.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? The gentleness that Eve showed to Morris

What I liked the Least? The fact that the romance was killed so early

Review: The mystery was intricate, wonderfully plotted and I didn't figure out the bad guy until the reveal. There were twists & turns that linked together in a tightly woven plot – Eve and Roarke were totally mag as were the rest of the crew. I loved the scenes of the bridal shower – they had me laughing out loud and wishing I were there to watch.

Recommended to: Fans of the series

Best Quote: Eve: Let me come with you.
Roarke: Let me see your penis.
Eve: Oh, God! Can’t I just use yours?
