#35 in the "In Death" Series

Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the murder of a sixteen-year-old girl who was brutally raped, sodomized and tortured multiple times, and strangled to death in her own bedroom. From the looks of the crime scene and evidence, she was targeted specifically due to her father, who is a captain of the NYPSD. The killer leaves a cruel, in-your-face video message to the captain. The method, the duration of the crime, the use of police restraints, the location (in his house) and the message point to a well planned, premeditated murder for retribution.
The case hits really close to home, brings Eve's childhood nightmare and Marlena's gang rape and torture murder rushing back. Despite that or because of that, Eve does everything in her power to take the killer down.


It was a first-rate police procedural mystery. Though we know "who the killer is" and "how he'd done it" relatively early in the book, we don't know "why" until about 3/4 way in the book. So the mystery of why and my curiosity kept me turning the pages. However, I was somewhat disappointed in the lack of a reasonable motive (not the killer's, but the father's) behind the crimes.
Compare to the other In Death books, there weren't as many laugh-out-loud moments, which was shame. And maybe because I've seen the similar scenes not so long ago in "Salvation in Death", I found there really weren't as many very memorable Eve and Roarke moments like the other ID books. It felt like this book was heavy on the mystery and murder investigations, and light on romance and relationships/friendships between the characters whom we love and adore. (I loved the scene between Eve & Morris, though... Very touching... ) We didn't really get to see some of the supporting characters. I wanted to see more of Eve & Roarke and the In Death gang... Hence I was a bit disappointed. It was nice to see Jamie again, though...

★★★★
