Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In the 20th fine volume of Roberts's futuristic mystery franchise, police lieutenant Eve Dallas is called in when lawyer Grant Swisher and his family are massacred with eerie skillfulness on the Upper West Side. The only survivor is 10-year-old Nixie, who evades—and witnesses—the killers as she creeps down to the kitchen for a midnight snack. Despite the painful memories of her own childhood that Nixie's presence calls up, Eve decides to hide the girl in the high-tech mansion she shares with her husband, billionaire businessman Roarke. With help from Roarke; her faithful sidekick, Peabody; and others, Eve discovers the existence of a shadowy former military operative with a grudge against Swisher—the lawyer helped the operative's battered wife divorce him right before she disappeared. The relatively early disclosure of the villain's identity and the dearth of other viable suspects dulls the suspense in the first half of the book, but tension escalates toward an absorbing denouement as a trap Eve sets for her target ends up with Nixie as its unintentional bait. Throughout, the series' colorful supporting cast and Eve's prickly personality—smartly showcased in her power struggles with everything from space-age vending machines to her own past—remain as vividly appealing as ever.

From AudioFile

NYPD Lt. Eve Dallas is haunted anew by echoes of her past when a family is murdered in their beds save for the 9-year-old daughter. Eve and Roarke shelter the girl in their home while working to track down the killers, who continue to murder in their quest to get to the girl. Robb's futuristic series (circa 2059) continues to feature interesting characters and crackling suspense. Susan Ericksen, who has narrated others in the series, displays her knack for creating voices that truly fit the characters' personalities. She portrays Eve with all of her determination and prickliness and is adept at the child's voice, a skill that is difficult for some narrators. Roarke's faint Irish brogue enhances his sexy persona, so well written by Robb. M.A.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
