In this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Detective Eve Dallas' investigation of a homicide at her husband's hotel leads to a murderer with a passion for the finer things in life-and in death...
At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown-and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He's Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn't help solve the crime. Because there's someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility-that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke…
"Since the murders all take place at Roarke's hotel, Eve allows him to assist in the investigation, a stroke of creative genius on Robb's part that plays on the strengths that brought them together way back in book one (Naked in Death), and that serves to bring out Eve's softer side. So certain is Robb at maintaining an atmospheric setting for this well-paced and expertly rendered series, followers will feel as if they have gone home to the future."-Publishers Weekly
