The brand new thriller in the Sunday Times best-selling series
As it often did since he'd married a cop, murder interrupted more pleasant activities. The again, Roarke supposed, the woman lying in a pool of her own blood a few steps inside the arch in Washington Square Park had a heftier complaint.
When a night out at the theatre is interrupted by the murder of a young woman in Washington Square Park, it seems like an ordinary case for Detective Eve Dallas and her team. But when Roarke spots a shadow from his past in the crowd, Eve realises that this case is far from business as usual.
Eve has two complex cases on her hands - the shocking murder of this wealthy young mother and tracking down the shadow before he can strike again, this time much closer to home. Eve is well used to being the hunter, but how will she cope when the tables are turned? As Eve and the team follow leads to Roarke's hometown in Ireland, the race is on to stop the shadow making his next move....

The story was just fantastic as it moved to Ireland and Roarkes' family and because he is involved with the capture of his old enemy bringing Roarke inner peace.
Eve as always is spectacular. Looking forward to the next book
I usually read her books so fast because they are page turners that I have to go back and reread them straight after to actually pick up the finer points of the plot. In some of her books I have found that even with multiple readings, every time I find a new detail that I somehow overlooked the previous times.

If I'm perfectly honest, this wasn't my favourite, it felt a little rushed I think. It would have been a bit better in my opinion if we had gotten a view into Cobbe's head as we do for the killers in some of the others in the series. Seeing his obsession of Roarke from his own head would have made him seem more real to me.
It wasn't a bad instalment, just not my favourite. Reading how Eve ran an entire department to get to one man was very interesting and the commitment from the other detectives and officers to Roarke was spot on. The investigation itself reminds you that cop work is tedious. I will probably be picking this up to read again as I tend to read from naked in death all the way to the new one coming out when it's time. I must admit, another thing that would have made me like this more? If Feeny and Whitney were the ones to get the collar.
However, I liked this fast pace story which had a bad penny from Roark's past determined to kill him and all he loves. In comes Eve and Roark's NYPD 'extended family' who will do anything to make sure that does not happen. The support network made this story hard to put it down. There was a lot of input from Eve's bull pen with her usual colleagues looking into all angles to find the bad penny. An emergency trip for the bull pen to save Roark's family in his homeland Ireland, brings everything to a head.
As I said, enjoyable read.
Aesthetics - the covers are looking very stylish and I do love to see what they will come up with
Cost - it's reasonable. She's Nora!
The Story - AMAZING!!! I wont repeat the synopsis. But I will say that is was jam packed with content - no wasted scenes, pages or words!! Sometimes fast paced, sometimes extending other areas of the Roarke/Eve world. We got to interact with most for the key players and some more than we are used to!! aka Whitney. Although at one point I thought 'that would never happen/the character would never do that' - I humbly defer to Nora on that as she is the creator and can have her characters do whatever she wants as she knows them best :)...I also felt I got two stories for the price of one - one spring boarded from the other - as they are masterfully intertwined it wasn't jarring and beautifully executed.
All I can say is I LOVED IT. It felt more inline with her early work (in creativity, substance and sheer enjoyment) which has been missing at times of late. Don't think about it - just read it. You won't regret it!!
Having this one come up for 99p was a wonderful gift!
I have all of the other books. I love all of the stories (though I read some of parts through slitted fingers!). I have re-read them numerous times (at least 20 or 30 times for most of them!).
This one is up there up there with my absolute favourites like... the rest of them!! There are scenes with virtually ll of her friends we have met in other books; and it is well paced, exciting, and just... bloody good!!
'No oatmeal, Eve thought with an inner cheer. Some nice fat berries, some sort of omelet, and best of all, bacon... Eve cut into the omelet. Green stuff inside. She should've known.'
'"It would be unprofessional of me to suggest you kick him in the balls when you do." "Yeah. Just like it's unprofessional of me to hope I get the chance to."'
I have had a wonderful day catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and watching a killer get caught. Bloody bargain!!!
