But the murder, bloody and brutal, of an entire family in their own home, in there own beds, was a different form of evil.’ On the surface Keelie and Grant Swisher seem unlikely targets for an assassin; an average couple living in a nice neighbourhood and working hard to raise their two kids. But when Eve Dallas is called to a multiple homicide at the Swisher family home, she discovers a blood bath. There are five dead including two children in what seems to be a professional hit. The killers breached an elaborate security system, slashed the throat of each victim while they slept; and were in and out of the house in less than ten minutes. In fact they made only one mistake. They left a survivor…

Offering her a temporary refuge is easy, but dealing with the emotional needs of a nine year old girl who has lost everything isn’t. Eve can at least promise Nixie justice, but she’s chasing professionals who don’t like leaving loose ends. And leaving Nixie Swisher alive is one loose end too many…

But just a few days later, Trudy’s found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy’s bereaved son.

But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms to be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date not even showing up at the shower at Eve and Roarke s place that she d been looking forward to so much. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family. When Eve enters Tandy s apartment and finds Mavis s shower gift wrapped and ready on the table and Tandy s packed hospital bag still on the floor her spine starts tingling. Normally, this would be turned over to Missing Persons. Eve has more than enough on her plate trying to find out who murdered Natalie Copperfield and her fianc , both employed at a highly prestigious accounting firm. But Mavis wants no one but Eve on the case and Eve can t say no. She ll have to track Tandy down while tracing the deals and double crosses hidden in the files of some of the city s richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against a particularly vicious killer. Luckily, she has her multimillionaire husband Roarke s expertise to help with the numbers crunching.

The death of history teacher Craig Foster devastated his young wife, who d sent him off to work that morning with a lovingly packed lunch. It shocked his colleagues at the Upper West Side private school. And as for the ten year old girls who found him in his classroom in a pool of bodily fluids, they may have been traumatized for life. Lieutenant Eve Dallas, of course, is more hardened to murder cases. And this is clearly a murder case. That lovingly packed lunch 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. Now Magdelana Percell there s someone Eve can picture as a murder victim. Possibly at Eve s own hands. The slinky blonde an old flame of her billionaire husband, Roarke, from his days on the wrong side of the law has turned up in New York, and she s anything but innocent. Unfortunately, Roarke seems blind to Magdelana s manipulation, but not to her shapely figure and flirtatious ways. And he insists that the occasional lunch or business meeting with her is nothing to worry about and none of Eve s business. Eve s so unnerved by the situation that she finds it hard to focus on the Foster case. Still, she ll have to put aside her anger, jealousy, and heartbreak, for a while at least because another man has just turned up dead, and the case is taking some strange turns and hitting some frustrating dead ends. Eve knows all too well that innocence can be a fa ade. Keeping that in mind may help her solve this case at last. But it may also tear apart her marriage.
Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring. Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man whom the media tagged The Groom put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. Eve and her partner Feeney, her friend and mentor, couldn t stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started. When it turns out that The Groom’s most recent victim was employed by Eve s billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case. A move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. With the Groom s monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he s never known. Time is running out on another woman s life and for Eve.
Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed and strangled with cords of black velvet. It doesn t surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders’s scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders aren t so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas s billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders s sporting goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access. Before long, she s knocking on doors or barging through them to look for the answers she needs. But the facts don t add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn t struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone s alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion or a carefully planned execution? It s up to Dallas to solve a sensational case where all involved guard secrets from one another and strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways. Nora Roberts is cool. Stephen King
Ancient church rituals meet cutting edge crime solving in the latest novel in the 1 New York Times bestselling series that’s Law & Order: SVU in the future Entertainment Weekly. In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer. Ridley Pearson has praised J. D. Robb s suspense as taut and nerve jangling. Her latest thriller sets a new standard for suspense, as the priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips and falls over dead. When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the consecrated wine contained potassium cyanide, she s determined to solve the murder of Father Miguel Flores, despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It s not the bodegas and pawnshops of East Harlem that bother her, though the neighborhood is a long way from the stone mansion she shares with her billionaire husband, Roarke. It s all that holiness flying around at St. Christobal s that makes her uneasy. A search of the victim s sparsely furnished room reveals little except for a carefully hidden religious medal with a mysterious inscription, and a couple of underlined Bible passages. The autopsy reveals more: faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo and evidence of plastic surgery, suggesting that Father Flores may not have been the man his parishioners had thought. Now, as Eve pieces together clues that hint at gang connections and a deeply personal act of revenge, she believes she s making progress on the case. Until a second murder in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers knocks the whole investigation sideways. And Eve is left to figure out who committed these unholy acts and why.

When she s taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn t just one of us.
Dallas s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris and Coltraine had started a serious relationship, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone from Coltraine s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve s husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on Coltraine s life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.
The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve containing Coltraine s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I ll be sending yours to somebody else.
But Eve Dallas doesn t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that s a promise.

No one seemed to have a prob lem with the enthusiastic, high spirited millionaire. Of course, success can attract jealousy, and gaming, like any business, has its fierce rivalries and dirty tricks as Eve’s husband, Roarke, one of U Play’s competitors, knows well.

Eve and her team are about to enter the next level of police work, in a world where fantasy is the ultimate seduction and the price of defeat is death…

With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in and into the perverted heart of madness…
Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime – an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation. Determined to start working out as hard as she grills suspects, she chooses to do it at the old, rarely-used gym at Central. After a grueling workout, she squeezes into one of the narrow shower stalls, happy to have the place to herself. Just after she shuts the water off, the gym door clatters open – and while she cringes inside the stall, trying not to make a sound, Peabody overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. References are made to delivering product, and a house in the islands, and someone named Keener who’s supposed to look like an OD. It doesn’t take long for a naked and vulnerable Peabody to realize that both officers are crooked – guilty not just of corruption but of murder as well. Fortunately, the two clear out of the locker room without realizing there was a witness. Eve Dallas may have trained Peabody well – but this is too dangerous for one person to take on alone. Now Peabody, Eve, and her husband, Roarke, must try to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down – knowing all the while that the two have already killed to keep their secret, and are no doubt willing to do it again.
The new novel from the 1 New York Times bestselling author, which takes readers deeper into the mind of Eve Dallas than ever before. The number one New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying new case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas, one that will take her all the way to the city that gave her her name and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood. When a monster named Isaac McQueen taken down by Eve back in her uniform days escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.
Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high rise, high society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she s no party girl, she s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it s Eve, not Roarke, who s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she s at the center of a crime scene and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.
