#31 in the "In Death" Series

This is another ID book that you cannot put down.
Business magnate Thomas Anders is murdered without a trace. Lieutenant Eve Dallas suspects (or I should say she is fairly certain from the get-go) that his wife Ava Anders is the killer although she has an unassailable alibi.

This is one of those books where Eve knows who the killer is before she knows how. It was absolutely intriguing to see how Eve solved the case layer by layer. If you are familiar with Alfred Hitchcock’s "Strangers on a Train", you will figure out the mystery of how-it-was-done relatively easily as the story progress. Still, you won’t be disappointed.
There are many great laugh-out loud scenes with Eve and In Death gang. And of course there are lots and lots of sweet & lovely, funny, emotional and touching Eve & Roarke moments. Oh, you also get to see happy Charles & Louise moments.

ETA:
I totally forgot to mention this. The whole money stuff seemed pretty contrived. Eve is a lieutenant, a ranked police officer who earns reasonable money and Roarke pays ALL of her living expenses. So How Could She Possibly Be Out of Money?? I just don't get it. Eve was paying all her living expenses before she met Roarke and she was okay. And I'm sure she makes more money now than before she met Roarke.
What does she spend her money on? She sure doesn't need to pay for her living expenses. So what cost so much that she is tapped out?? I don't believe buying Pepsi, candy bars, lunch, etc. and paying bribes and weasels are that costly.
Thus, naturally I was a bit disappointed in the cause of the fight over money between Eve and Roarke. I wish it were more plausible, more convincing and more believable...


★★★★1/2
