A wife/mother has been reported missing on a New York ferry. There is quite the crime scene but no "body", and when the "missing mom" turns up uninjured with no memory of where she has been, could the NYPSD think of anyone better than Lt. Eve Dallas to solve the crime? And of course, with little or no leads, lack of food and sleep, she will do the job. Ironically, this case will touch her life in ways she never imagined. The victim and the suspect have ties to her painful past, and the secret organization (the HSO). Confronted with the truth, and knowing the motive, Eve must look deep within herself for a solution that she can live with. This short "In Death" story was great. There wasn't the usual amount of romance (although Roarke is still to die for), but there was everything that made a good tale....there were spies, secret weapons, assassins, murder, mayhem and a decent story to boot. I definitely recommend this story to people who love the series (they will know and appreciate the back stories), they won't regret it.
