Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it's a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.
Other couples aren't as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn't made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him—but they didn't think he was capable of this.
Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he's stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry's going to strike next.
Oh, this book was kinda sad to read. What with Jerry, who starts off killing his parents, and finds a liking to it, and then starts to go and kill anyone he feels wronged him. And that's just sad, that a person could decide that they were entitled to that.
But I really enjoyed the Thanksgiving that Eve and Roarke had with his extended family, that was really nice and sweet! And then them getting medals for their actions from 2 books ago, that was really special!
On the other hand, there's the one teacher that Jerry had, the computer lady, and that she was imprisoned and tortured in her own house-because she flunked him on her course, because he didn't live up to his potential. And I hoped that she'd be saved, but nope, they were just a little bit too late.
They took Jerry down, and that was good. He was a bad person, finding a liking to killing, and yeah, I just didn't like him at all, he thought he was entitled when he wasn't-he kinda reminded me of the guys from Seduction in Death, now that I think about it-and so he is entitled to a jail cell!
This was a really great book, hated the bad guy, and really enjoyed everything else! Great book, great series, can't wait for more!
