THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES . . . The chilling new suspense novel from the author of Brotherhood in Death.
After a party in New York, Lieutenant Eve Dallas rides home with her billionaire husband, Roarke, happy to be done with cocktails and small talk.
After another party, not far away, a woman retires to her bedroom with her husband—and walks into a brutal nightmare.
Their paths are about to collide…
When the young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve, still in glittering gown and heels, springs into action. It’s been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it’s far from over.
Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him "the devil" . . .
While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked—and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife—this is one case where the evidence doesn't point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:
What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?
Yeah, another in Death book! This series has just been so fantastic, and it's the longest running series-and still continuing-that I'm currently reading, if not ever read, or at least, in the top 5! I mean, wow, 44 books and another one coming out later this year? Fantastic!
Some of the most awesome things that were discussed in this book was the bed crawl, and watching the Avengers movie(s)? And that the movies were classics. That was just awesome, and a bit weird, seeing as the 3rd one hasn't come out yet! Though I don't know if Eve and Rourke got that far, since they skipped all but the end of the first phase, they might have to go back to watch those!
After Apprentice, Eve needed a vacation, and she got one. But then this case delved into those feelings again, because the living victim was abused by her husband, and then all of this happened. So it was a pretty emotional case!
I really enjoyed how they trapped the bad guy, they had enough evidence to get a warrant, and then they found his nest of items inside his house, and that interview, wow! She said she was going to mess with his mind as he messed with his victim's minds, and she did! And that twist ending! Wow! Fantastic book!
Another amazing book in this series, and yeah, I can't wait for Secrets in Death!
