About the book: When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind.
Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaited them instead. Brutally murdered in her bedroom, Deena's body showed signs of trauma that horrified even the toughest of cops; including our own Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who was specifically requested by the captain to investigate.
My Thoughts: This is the 29th book in the In Death series and the 4th or 5th that I've read. I haven't found a bad one yet and will continue to read them, probably out of order. This page turner was a quick, entertaining read. The Story line was engaging, pulling me along to read more. The stories are set slightly in the future, 2060, with a complement of futuristic gadgets and language. It is not so futuristic that it seems like a sci-fi read. It is a good, solid police procedural. I have enjoyed each mystery and especially liked watching Eve & Roarke's relationship grow.
Quote: Galahad’s bicolored eyes glittered, perhaps in amusement, before he scrambled off the bed.
Eve programmed the kibble, and since it was a holiday, a side of tuna. When the cat pounced on it like the starving, she programmed two mugs of coffee, strong and black.
