Nora Roberts is the number one New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred novels. With more than 300 million copies of her books in print, and more than 150 New York Times bestsellers to date, Nora Roberts is indisputably the most celebrated women's fiction writer today.
New York City law officers have more technological weapons at their disposal in bestseller Robb's snappy near-future series, but so do criminals, including the sadistic rapist killer who strikes down Deena MacMasters, the 16-year-old daughter of police captain Jonah MacMasters, in the 30th full-length novel to feature homicide detective Lt. Eve Dallas (after Promises in Death). MacMasters specifically asks that Dallas, who has a knack for clever insights and deductions, lead the investigation into his daughter's murder. An impressive team of professionals-augmented by Dallas's husband, Roarke, and his young protege, Jaime Lingstrom-begins the arduous task of collecting and analyzing data. Clues suggest Deena may not be the only victim targeted by her killer and increase the pressure on Dallas and her cohorts. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) combines sex, horrific crime, forensics and technological wizardry for another winner sure to please her many fans. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
