Promises In Death Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Inside the paralysed shell, she struggled, she strained. She looked up into the eyes of her killer. Into the eyes of a friend. Why?
Every cop gets angry when a police officer is killed. And Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no exception. Throwing every resource into solving Amarylis Coltraine's brutal murder, Eve encounters bitter opposition from Coltraine's fellow officers, who are desperate to take over the case. But when Eve receives a strange parcel containing Coltraine's badge and gun together with a note threatening the imminent arrival of her own ID, she knows the case has just got personal.
Then a link to millionaire Alex Ricker, son of a criminal she had put behind bars, heats things up even further. Ricker was romantically involved with Amarylis - did she leak information to him and then have a change of heart? Eve must put herself in extreme danger to get to the truth . . .

Mainly I think, due to the fact it was very close to home as it is Morris’s lady who is murdered.
All tied in with an extremely nasty old foe who is still orchestrating things from prison.
Some fantastic personal time is had, with Charles bachelor boys heading off to Vegas, Louise’s bachelorette party happening in Eve’s home, Roarke gives Eve her very first personal car, the DLE and some great interaction and humorous lines are had.
At one point during the party for Louise, I thought Eve was just too work focused. Yes, she is usually like that but Roarke had just stressed the importance of living life and Eve herself admitted they needed to just BE and enjoy.
But overshadowing all of this, we have Morris’ distress and pain on losing the woman he was falling in love with.
The who behind Ammy’s murder was surprising and riveting but the why was so sadly pathetic.
I have owned most of these books in paperback for years but now have them all in eBook format, so I am rereading this series once more in order, updating and replacing missing reviews.
Even knowing what is in the future, it is absolutely no hardship to reread this series and I am really enjoying how all the characters are growing and changing.
