About the Book:

In early spring of 2059, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called off planet to face a grueling ordeal – giving a seminar at the largest police conference of the year, to be held in a swanky resort. A resort which just happens to be owned by her husband, Roarke, of course. Even though Eve can’t quite see it that way, it’s supposed to be at least partly a vacation. But work intrudes in the form of a bloody homicide, and Eve is off and running. The case is complicated by Eve’s personal history with the victim – and by the killer’s history with Roarke. As danger closes in and the body count rises, Eve must find a way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge, and shove the past back where it belongs.

My Review:

A short novella story, #12.5 in the series, has a nice tidy murder spree that Detective Eve Dallas must solve.  Assisted by the lovely Peabody and her husband, Roarke, Eve goes about solving the case while she is off-planet, attending a Police conference.

If you haven’t read any of the In Death series, check them out if you love kick-ass female protagonists, detective stories or just a little bit of a futuristic flare (not too much) to your everyday crime reads.  So far, I’ve been happy with all of the stories and the cast of characters are so wonderful that I can see them in my head as I read.

This particular story was written for a compilation book originally, I believe and can easily be skipped if you can’t find it.  It doesn’t further any character development, so you won’t miss anything on that front. And while the crime Eve must solve is interesting, it isn’t earth-shattering and can be skipped if you want to move straight to book 13.
