Lieutenant Eve Dallas struggles with the endâ€”and the beginningâ€”of life in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.
Just as Eve Dallas begins to investigate the grisly double homicide of two young loversâ€”both employees of the same prestigious accounting firmâ€”her friend Mavis need a favor. One of the moms-to-be in Mavisâ€™s birthing class has gone missing. Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the jobâ€”and Eve canâ€™t say no.
Now Eveâ€™s trying to track down the missing woman, while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the cityâ€™s richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarkeâ€™s expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.
