Eve is wondering why she is at a fancy party (with her handsome husband, Roarke) wearing stiletto heels and tons of diamonds, when a naked man, covered in blood, clutching a knife staggers in. Following bloody footprints Eve finds a disturbing crime scene in room 606 (changed to appear to be 666) with all the signs of a ritual murder by devil worshipers. The doctor accused of killing his love interest doesn't remember anything from the night and is experiencing a series of painful headaches when he tries to remember. As the body count rises Eve, not quick to believe in the supernatural, looks for other reasons to explain what happened. Roarke on the other hand, losing two employees and feeling a sense of responsibility, doesn't mind tapping another source, an ex-lover who is a witch. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery (with her trusted partner Peabody, e-Geek McNab, and Roarke), Eve finds that some are willing to destroy the lives of others, for power and control. I enjoyed this short story and can't wait until the next JD Robb release.
