When a murder disrupts the vacation to Ireland she is taking with her husband, Roarke, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas realizes that no place is safeﾗnot an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City. First it was a limo driver shot through the neck with a crossbow. Then it was a high-priced escort found stabbed through the heart with a bayonet. The trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked. With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals: a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in lifeﾗand death. As time runs out on another innocent victimﾒs life, Eveﾒs investigation will take her into the rarefied circle that Roarke travels inﾗand into the perverted heart of madness.
