It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore.
After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes. His other goal: to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago, now a high-profile lieutenant in the NYPSD and married to one of the city’s richest men.
Commanding Eve’s attention with a chilling and brazen crime, McQueen sets off the chase - forcing Eve down a road marked with blood and tears, a road that eventually leads southwest to Dallas, Texas, the home Eve fled long ago. And each new twist brings her closer to the harrowing memory of when she wasn’t a hardened detective but a vulnerable girl just like McQueen’s innocent prey. As her husband, Roarke, tries to rescue her from the nightmares that claw at her mind, and her partner, Peabody, doggedly works to support her, Eve must confront - and call upon - the darkest parts of her own soul in order to survive.

There isn't much I can say about this book without giving away too much to the people who haven't read it yet, but this is an awesome book. It's very difficult to listen to at times, not because of bad writing or a bad plot, but because you can feel the emotions of the characters. I absolutely love all of the books in this series and have listened to them all multiple times. I will continue to do so. I'd rather read the JD Robb books than most of the Nora Roberts books. That's just how I roll.
All Books in the JD Robb/Dallas series
I love not only the characters and the author, but Susan Erikson too. (forgive me if I misspelled). Susan just compliments JD so much in bringing these characters to life. It's hard to go to reading and not listening because I'm so used to 'hearing' each character's unique voice. And Susan really developed each character as new books appeared. I only wish they would make a television series out of the whole series of books. I know it would be an instant hit.
I hate it when people say they do not like the narration but i understand where they are coming from this being my 5th audio book at first o w as taken aback by the character narrations as I was unsure what to expect. But now I have a few new hard copies and i cant read them without Susan Erickson’s narrations it just isn’t the same!!! I think it just takes an adjustment! Way to go Susan and congrats on the new successful book this really did it for me and what a lot of unanswered questions about Dallas I hope this does not mean they are coming to an end! DON’T STOP WRITING EVER!
