"After a party in New York, Lieutenant Eve Dallas rides home with her billionaire husband, Roarke, happy to be done with cocktails and small talk. After another party, not far away, a woman retires to her bedroom with her husband--and walks into a brutal nightmare. Their paths are about to collide... When the young woman--dazed, naked, and bloody--wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve, still in glittering gown and heels, springs into action. It's been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it's far from over. Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it's too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him "the devil" . . . While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked--and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife--this is one case where the evidence doesn't point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions: What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?"--

I enjoyed this one more than the last in this series; there was something that almost reminded me of the early books in the series. Eve was her usual tough, brash, and steely-eyed self but there was a slight vulnerability present throughout.

One of the more interesting in the series. Unusual weakness in that her bad guy is too stereotyped to be believable or interesting. The victims end up being the main points of interest along with the usual hot sex and cold logic.

As always, J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) delivers on a great mystery that keeps you guessing. Surprise twist at the end. So much of case was a reminder for Eve of her own past, but with the help of Roarke and Dr. Mira, she gets past it and finds the bad guy despite all of his elaborate play acting. A great addition to the In Death series.
MUST READ

I really enjoy reading these books. The characters grow with each book showing new sides of each and how the cases affects them. I could not put this book down for long and finished it in a weekend. Usually, I have a suspicion who the guilty parties are before the end, this time I knew before it was revealed. After the case was solved and the story was wrapping up the author revealed there was one last thing.

Very formulaic tale I would bet the author can write these in a day and in this case may have-last one for me and I have read most of the recent books in the series.

I am such a big fan of J D Robb and have read all of the books in the In Death Series. This book starts out with a murder victim and the victim's wife running in front of Dallas and Rourke's car on a freezing cold night. While trying to solve this murder, Dallas finds out that there a few more cases that are similar to this case. Her team works night and day to stop the person doing this. When Dallas figures out who is doing all the horrible things, she and her team do what they do best. Stop him!!!!!! I loved this book and can't wait for the next book in this series.
