From Our Editors
Eve is stunned by the vicious nature of a series of murders--and haunted by the cryptic riddles left for her by the killer. The crimes are clearly related, but the investigation stalls until Eve discovers a common link between the victims: her new husband, Roarke

This book in the series focuses on Somerset, Roarke's manservant. He is being framed for a series of brutal mutilations, tortures and murders. These stem from the vengence sought by Roarke in the murder of Somerset's daughter.

Eve must put aside her dislike of Somerset and find out who is really behind these murders. She gets a riddle to solve that might get her to the scene before the victim dies. This murderer knows his electronics and McNab, E-detective is introduced. In this book we find out still more about Roarke's murky past but the focus is really on Somerset. We see his weaknesses and strengths and find out a lot more about him.

The plot is well developed and I enjoyed this book every bit as much as the other books in the series

As Eve Dallas is wrapping up what she considers an easy case, she gets a call from an untraceable number, giving her a riddle of where she can find a body. When Dallas deciphers the riddle, she finds a mutilated body in one of her husband's towers. What's worse, is that her husband, Roarke, used to be friends back in Ireland with the victim.

The killer has decided that Dallas is going to play a game with him and that he is going to start taking out people from Roarke's past. Summerset, Roarke's uptight butler gets framed for the crimes. Eve needs to get a step ahead of the killer before he gets too close.

As usual, this was an interesting story. Unfortunately, also as usual, Robb makes it personal, AGAIN! This is book 6 in the series, and I believe for 1/2 of them, someone close to Dallas has taken some sort of hit (framed, attacked, what have you). In a 25+ book series I can understand taking this route once or maybe twice. But 50% of the time in the first 6 books? And of course, Eve walks in on the killer without any backup. I believe 5/6 of the last books have had this happen as well. Why does Robb think that it would be any less dramatic if Eve outsmarted the guy rather than had a fist/gun fight with him?

That being said, I love the chemistry between Eve and Roarke, and the exchanges between Eve and Peabody. Not a bad book overall, just way too predictable.
