Eve Dallas tracks a couple whose passion is fueled by cold brutality in this crime thriller from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Obsession in Death and Festive in Death.
When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart – and initials inside reading E and D….
Ella-Loo Parsens wants to go to New York City and whatever Ella-Loo wants boyfriend Darryl Roy James makes sure she gets. Even if it means murder.
