From the Publisher
On one of the city’s hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park-and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of the lake. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes-removed with such precision, as if done with the careful hands of a surgeon-that have Dallas most alarmed.

As more bodies turn up, each with the same defining scars, Eve is frantic for answers. Against her instincts, she accepts help from a psychic who offers one vision after another-each with shockingly accurate details of the murders. And when partner and friend Peabody is badly injured after escaping an attack, the stakes are raised. Are the eyes a symbol? A twisted religious ritual? A souvenir? With help from her husband, Roarke, Dallas must uncover the killer’s motivation before another vision becomes another nightmare...

Elisa Maplewood had been brutally attacked, raped, and murdered in Central Park. She was placed on the rocks overlooking the lake with her hands posed as if she’s in prayer and then her killer surgically removed her eyes and took them with him.

Eve is called into the case on her way home from a function with Roarke. The next day a physic, Celina Sanchez, calls Eve to say she has seen the whole murder in her dreams. She appears to have details the police have not yet released. Eve, very reluctantly, brings her on as a consultant to the police.

As the bodies keep coming, the police don't seem to be able to catch the perpetrator. Peabody is attacked on her way home from the subway and miraculously escapes but not without a lot of injuries. This raises the stakes and now the whole police department is on the hunt.

Mavis and Lenardo are closer to having their baby with the common parental fears.

I loved this 19th book especially the twist. Eve and Roarke , what's not to love?

Eve Dallas gets a call on the way home from a party with her husband Roarke to a park in NYC, due to a homicide. The scene is rather grisly. A single mother walking home at night, she is beaten, raped and strangled before posed and her eyes cut out. Eve knows she needs to stop this guy before he kills again and she's helped in a very unlikely way. A sensitive, who can see visions and read people, visits Eve telling her that she saw the crime happen in her visions. She describes things that haven't been released to the public. Eve isn't quite sure what to make of her but uses it as assistance to the investigation.

I think this was one of the better 'in death' books. The investigation wasn't pretty, there was a lot of painstaking details that needed to be tracked down, which made it feel more real. I also think that Detective Peabody came a bit more in to her own in this book. Finally, there was a nice twist at the end that I wasn't expecting.
