Eve Dallas doesn't like to see innocent people murdered. And the death of history teacher Craig Foster is clearly a murder case. The lunch that his wife lovingly packed was tainted with deadly ricin. And Mr. Foster's colleagues, shocked as they may be, have some shocking secrets of their own. It's Eve's job to get a feel for all the potential suspects--and find out why someone would have done this to a man who seemed so inoffensive, so pleasant...so innocent.
Someone Eve could easily picture dead is an old flame of her billionaire husband Roarke, who has turned up in New York and manipulated herself back into his life. Consumed by her jealousy--and Roarke's indifference to it--Eve finds it hard to focus on the Foster case. But when another man turns up dead, she'll have to keep in mind that both innocence and guilt can be facades...
"For the first time in Robb's exceptional series, things are not copacetic on the home front for Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke. One of the enduring strengths of this series is the relationship growth among all the characters, but especially Eve. The remarkable Robb perfectly balances gritty suspense, dangerous drama and pulse-pounding romance!"--RT Book Reviews
"Once again Lt. Eve Dallas shows why she's 'New York City's top murder cop' in Roberts's 24th thriller...Besides a provocative puzzler, Robb provides an intense relationship update on Dallas and Roarke."--Publishers Weekly
"Roarke and Eve remain an appealing pair, and Eve's flashes of vulnerability contrast nicely with her no-nonsense approach to work."--Kirkus Reviews

For all that the element of this particular killer in this book is unbelievable, this is one of my favourites due to the appearance of Magdalena, an old and special flame of Roark’s.
The hiccup this puts in Eve and Roark’s relationship is truly one of my favourite reads. Even Summerset has a say. The ending especially has Eve’s particular brand of finesse to it.
The deaths of both Foster and Trevor are terribly sad.
I own every book in this series and I love rereading them, it is my go to for some relaxation.

If you've been following my blog over the last few months you'll know I've been devouring this series and I can't get enough of Eve and Roarke as a couple so it was horrible to see them going through a rough patch in this book. But at the same time I really appreciate that J.D. Robb is still managing to make their relationship fresh and interesting 24 books into a long running series. Roarke can sometimes be too good to be true so it was nice to see him make a mistake for a change even though it left me wanting to smack some sense into him. I was so angry at him for hurting Eve but at the same time I could see why he was annoyed that she didn't seem to trust him. I never doubted them as a couple though, it's obvious they're both crazy about each other and that nobody is ever going to be able to come between them no matter how hard they try.
I have to give a shoutout to Summerset in this review too because there were some fantastic scenes between him and Eve this time around. I love the antagonistic relationship they usually have but I also really like the way that when the chips are down they can actually be quite sweet to each other. I don't want to say too much about the murder in this case but I will say I was shocked and pretty horrified at who the killer was and their motives. This was definitely a surprising case that nearly got past Eve, luckily she got her head back into the game in time to solve the mystery though.
