Publisher's Summary

The year 2060 is drawing to a close, and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's a time for loved ones to come together. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water....
For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it's a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.
Other couples aren't as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn't exactly made a good impression on all the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him - but they didn't think he was capable of this.
Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he's stolen from his parents, and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry's going to strike next.

Third book thats missing all Eves friends. Boring.

This is now the third book missing all the other characters. Where is Summerset, Mavis, Mira,Galahad, Candy thief etc? It is now just a murder story, and even though there is Thanksgiving bash at Eves, the last 5 minutes mentions a few people there, and thats it. Again, all the interaction with the friends that have been developed over the 34 books is missing. It is also becoming very boring that every murderer calls all women whores, and cunts, its getting old, there has to be more than that. All the fun is gone, I used to laugh when I listened to her books, even the great sex with Rourke is missing. There is no human interaction any more. Maybe its time to end the series, or bring back some fun. It is now just another murder story, and not that great either.

Should have been named Torture In Death

I love serial books. I love that I follow along as the characters and the world are developed. I love that I saw Mavis from street grifter to cop friend to rock star to wife to mother. More than serials I love mysteries. When I can get both then it's perfect. I don't love explicit sex scenes. Just leave that to my imagination... I don't love hearing about rape--it's dispicable, unforgiveable and the opposite of entertaining. I like, however, that it's the basis for the Eve Dallas character, showing how she deals with it and that she lives with it and that it is the basis for her wanting to protect, defend and seek justice. I've read all the Eve Dallas books and this is the one that makes me wish I had never started. There is no mystery in hunting down a madman. There is no entertainment in hearing, step by step, gleeful torture and murder. If I could clear this from my brain as easily as brushing a bad taste from my mouth I certainly would!
