About this book: As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.
Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”...
While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:
What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?
5 strong golden stars!
This is the 44th book in the series, not including the shorter stories. The 44th!! How about that! And this I cannot get enough of Eve and the people she work with. This character is one of my favorites. She is like a bad-ass female version of Bruce Willis in his movies lol. Seriously, I love her and just can’t get enough of her. I am sad now that I haven’t reviewed all of these books as I read them, but I was seriously binge reading and couldn’t be bothered at that time to stop and write a review. As with all longer series, some book are better than others and yet I feel like this series doesn’t have bad books. I loved all and every one of them. Of course some were closer to my heart than others, but every book is unique and just proves again and again what a wonderful writer Nora Roberts is <3
So this book got me guessing from the start. I’m a huge fan of detectives and for example in movies I pretty much can say from the start who did what and who’s responsible. And since I read all the previous books in this series, I was sure I could guess who the ‘bad guy’ here is. Lol... Yes I was sure I could tell. I know, funny. But once again dear Nora surprised me and I’m glad. This power she has keeps me coming back again and again, to read her books.
Absolutely loved this book and am very sad it ended and cannot wait for the next one to come!
If you haven’t started this series, maybe you’re intimidated by the number of books in it (I was), don’t be! The fact that this series is still going only shows that one, the story isn’t over, two the author still has something to add to the characters and three – demand for these books is high!
I highly recommend!
