Reva is a woman out for revenge, but murder was never in her plan. When she burst into her cheating husband and best friend's love nest, her rage turns to shock; they are lying entwined in each others arms, covered in blood. She calls her mother next, who happens to work for Roarke, who is conveniently married to the best homicide cop in the twenty first century, Eve Dallas. It only takes Eve a short time to know Reva is innocent, but proving that will be a challenge. As she works towards the truth, Eve will face her own demons once more, and a bit more of her shrouded past will emerge. In the end, Eve's future will be in more jeopardy than ever, as she faces a deadly enemy who is not afraid to kill.
***** Some series peter out and become tired. Eve and Roarke have yet to do so. From fresh and funny to intensely passionate or chillingly dangerous, the emotions run the gamut. Both major and minor characters are well developed. Even if you dislike futuristics, this series is worth making an exception. In particular, "Divided in Death" has one of the best Eve/Roarke scenes of all the books, which is saying a lot. *****
