"As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman -- dazed, naked, and bloody -- stumbles out in front of their car. Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it's too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him 'the devil'. While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn't point to the spouse." -- Back cover.

This was yet another example of how amazing Nora is at giving you a visual of each and every character she writes. Each step of this story showed how arrogant and cruel the villain was in this story.

The way that he acted showed how he disdained everyone, including his own family. For me it was no surprise that he chose to brag about everything he had done and the lives that he had destroyed.

After all he had already gotten away with committing terrible crimes in the past. He believed that he was beyond the law and that his wealth would mean that he would have what amounted to a slap on the shoulder.

The fact that Nora is able to see what is happening in our own time and connect it to the future in her books is one of the reasons that she will always be one of the top writers of our time.

better than the last few. Well done on the victim development. Some twists.

Enjoyable quick read, spoiled only by the villain acting inexplicably after his arrest. Having been so impeccably thorough in his preparation for and commission of the various crimes, it isn't believable for him to act so stupidly, bragging about his crimes, refusing a lawyer, and after a bit of bluster, blurting the whole business out on the record. This behavior simply doesn't fit with the character Roberts built for him throughout the book.

One of the more interesting in the series. Unusual weakness in that her bad guy is too stereotyped to be believable or interesting. The victims end up being the main points of interest along with the usual hot sex and cold logic.

I really enjoy reading these books. The characters grow with each book showing new sides of each and how the cases affects them. I could not put this book down for long and finished it in a weekend. Usually, I have a suspicion who the guilty parties are before the end, this time I knew before it was revealed. After the case was solved and the story was wrapping up the author revealed there was one last thing.

Very formulaic tale I would bet the author can write these in a day and in this case may have-last one for me and I have read most of the recent books in the series.
