Lieutenant Eve Dallas walks the thin line between love and hate in this fabulous fortieth thriller from #1 New York Times bestseller J. D. Robb. Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and has gotten a lot of media attention. She—and her billionaire husband—are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, gossip, and speculation. But now Eve has become the object of one person’s obsession—someone who finds her extraordinary and thinks about her every hour of every day. This person believes the two of them have a special relationship and would kill for her—again and again. With a murderer reading meanings into her every move, handling this case will be a delicate—and dangerous—psychological dance. And Eve knows that underneath the worship and admiration, a terrible threat lies in wait. The beautiful lieutenant is not at all grateful for these bloody offerings from her “true and loyal friend.” And in time, idols always fall.
