“A WITTY, DARK, PAGE-TURNING TALE OF FUTURISTIC CRIME FIGHTING. RAYMOND CHANDLER MEETS BLADE RUNNER MEETS SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.”—Jonathan Kellerman
New York City, 2060: Lieutenant Eve Dallas never forgets a corpse. Her new case will resurrect the memories of women she couldn’t save—and the killer who slipped out of her grasp…
When the body of a young brunette is found in East River Park, artfully positioned and marked by signs of prolonged and painful torture, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier. The city was on edge from a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days, courtesy of a man the media tagged “The Groom”—because he put silver rings on the fingers of his victims.
But this time, it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made his attack personal. The young woman was employed by Eve’s billionaire husband, Roarke, washed in products from a store Roarke owns, and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. Chances are, The Groom is working up to the biggest challenge of his illustrious career—abducting a woman who will test his skills and who promises to give him days and days of pleasure before she dies: Eve.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Eve frantically tries to find and stop a serial killer before time runs out for his next victim. With practically the entire police force at her disposal, the hunt is fast and furious. The killer has captured his latest victim, whom he tortures with various means of pain; heat, cold, sharp, dull. He 'works', then rests, then continues his 'work', enjoying their pain. The final gift he gives them is of death, and he carves the amount of time they survived into their body before he strategically places them in pose to be found. This time around, there is a connection- the latest victims work for one of Roarke's enterprises. But that is not the only connection, or his goal. His goal is to make Eve his final masterpiece and victim.
