Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody - drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene - and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.

Almost 5 stars
I nearly gave this 5 stars, which is what I normally do for the In Death series. Let's face it, I love this series. I impatiently wait for each new release and actually at times I count down the days until the next release. My problem with this one was that there were so many characters, I found it difficult to keep track of who was who. I understand that this was necessary for this book due to the subject matter, but that didn't help lessen my confusion. I have listened to it twice already and the second time around, it was easier to keep track of who everybody was. Even with my less than perfect review, I still recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of JD Robb/Nora Roberts.
should be a five star but ...
only got the first part of the book, can't download the rest and what I did get is glitchy. iTunes wont let me report a problem. GRRRRR!!!
Nice breathe of fresh air..
After the emotional roller coaster of the last book, this book is a breathe of freshair. I reccomend this book.
