Summary

Summary

A New York Times audio bestseller

#1 New York Times bestseller

Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates a bizarre suicide bombing in a Manhattan office building, in a new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from J.D. Robb…

The airline executives were about to finalize a merger at a nine a.m. meeting. Then marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives.

Eve Dallas quickly confirms that Rogan, a dedicated employee and family man, was cruelly coerced to set off the bomb. He was motivated only by a desperate need to save his wife and daughter from the masked men holding them hostage―even if it meant committing suicide and mass murder. But what was the motive of the two masked men, who are now in the wind?

The police investigation reveals months of intricate planning by the perpetrators, but the targeting appears random―and the timing seems pointless. Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. With the help of her billionaire husband―who knows finance and has friends in both high and low places―Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror….

“J.D. Robb continues to do a fine job balancing Eve the woman against Eve the career homicide detective…That may be why the series works for adventure after adventure after adventure.”―New York Journal of Books

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Susan Ericksen is at it again with the latest J. D. Robb police procedural…It’s pure delight to hear the rich Irish accent of Eve’s partner in life, and often in investigation, Roarke. Ericksen’s voice as Eve’s official detective partner, Peabody, sounds a bit goofy in tone, but then again, so is the lovable sunny sidekick whose speech swells with incredulity and wit.” AudioFile
“Robb again remixes and remasters all the addictively readable ingredients her readers have come to crave, including a tough-as-nails protagonist who takes guff from no one, a plethora of engaging secondary characters who each play their roles to perfection, a generous dash of hot-as-sin sex, and a fine-tuned, tautly paced plot that relentlessly ticks along to the book’s satisfying conclusion.” Booklist
“Robb’s gripping forty-seventh thriller set in a near-future New York City opens with a bang…Robb keeps the action moving as the members of her ensemble cast interview survivors, analyze the bomb used, and gain enough clues to identify the villains. Series fans will be enthralled.” Publishers Weekly
