Eve Dallas is police officer in the year 2058 and also a childhood sexual abuse survivor. She has a couple of good friends and rarely dates. Her work is her life pretty much. She is fresh off of a case that has scarred her emotionally when she inherits a mess of a case. It involves the death of a Senator’s granddaughter, who was a licensed companion. In this future you can be a prostitute as long as you’re licensed to do so. What makes the case more interesting is that the victim was shot with a gun from our current time period. Guns are outlawed in the future. Only serious collectors have them, which leads her to Roarke as a suspect.

Roarke is a very wealthy man with a collection of 20th century guns and he is friends with family of the deceased. But the death of the prostitute is only the first victim and the beginning of this mystery. As Eve gets sexually involved with Roarke, she endangers not only her career but her life as they work together to find this killer that has scared the community.

This was an audio read for me and the first In Death book for me. I enjoyed it and am headed to the library for the second one in audio form. Anyone who likes romantic suspense and a good whodunnit, this is a good start to what I hope is an exciting series. My only complaint as a romance reader is that it could’ve been hotter. Thank you to Anne and my friend Wendy for suggesting this series to me.

  1. Keryn and Michelle – thanks for the clarification. As a non-uterus owner, I was aware of the painful contractions when my wife was nursing our second – I had no idea such a thing occurred. I wonder how my mom survived 11 pregnancies and births. Good luck to you!Science Geek Lurker – thanks for the clarification – I realize the uterus has three layers of smooth muscle, but wanted to simplify it, but mea culpa for not being scientifically accurate – thanks for the reminder.
