A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author -- At the bottom of a stairway on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a woman lies dead, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better. Marta Dickenson doesn't seem the type to be on anyone's hit list. Yet when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, she knows Marta's murder is the work of a trained killer -- though not one professional enough to remove all the evidence.
Publisher's Weekly Review:
"In bestseller Robb's engaging 37th Eve Dallas thriller (after 2012's Delusion in Death), Dallas and her partner, Delia Peabody, look into the death of Marta Dickenson. Found with a broken neck at the bottom of a stairway in an Upper East Side Manhattan building, which is under renovation by a financial consultant group, Dickenson was employed as an accountant by a firm nearby. And her briefcase, containing files she had been auditing, was stolen. Confident it's a case of murder, Dallas and her smoothly running team conduct an ever-widening probe of accountants, financial advisers, their spouses, and their lovers. Her husband, Roarke, a former hacker and now owner of his own electronics company, lends his special skills. Robb (the pen name of Nora Roberts) supplies her usual winning blend of keen investigative work, striking characterizations, and enthusiastic sex, all leavened with a fine sense of humor.
