Publisher's Summary

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' 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' 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.

Excellent series

I picked this series up at about book 5 and it didn't take long to get me hooked. I have read many police procedural book series and this series ranks up there with the best of them. Sometimes it's kind of hard to understand some of the futuristic technology, but what sci-fi/futuristic type novel isn't nowadays? It is full of Nora Roberts' trademark steamy romance scenes and humor, but that only adds to the drama and intrigue of this series. Eve Dallas and her partner Roarke make an excellent pair in solving the many mysterious and action-packed cases they encounter. There is also lots of memorable characters as well. I never miss a book. There is not a bad book in this series. I say sit back, relax, and enjoy one of the best narrators in the business take you through a police adventure that will have you wanting more once it ends. And there are a lot of books to enjoy in this series. Read them all. You will not be able to get enough!!!

Interesting Story

I dont agree that this was boring. I would say it was too long breaking down the why and how, since Eve already knew the who. I loved getting an update on Charles and Louise and the jokes and banter between the characters alwasy make me laugh out loud as if they are really chating and I am involved. To me these stories are real and easy to get your self wrapped up in. The story was interesing and murderer is easy to dislike from the beggining (very annyoying and mean).
Happy reading. On to Book 27...
