In this first book of a captivating series, Naked in Death, we meet Lt. Eve Dallas and discover her passion, her commitment, and her focus for solving murders.
Almost immediately, Eve is caught up in a murder investigation that takes over almost everything in her life, and also puts her in the path of a handsome, compelling, and super-rich man named Roark. He follows his own rules without straying too far over the line.
When the first murder turns into a second and a third, Eve and her colleagues begin to suspect that the perpetrator is someone who knows the system well.
Will they find the perp before the killer moves on to Number Four and more? Will Roark turn out to be involved, or is someone trying to frame him? And how will Eve avoid the powerful chemistry between the two of them? Or will she give in to his charms?
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, their chemistry, and the futuristic world in which they live (2058), a world in which guns are illegal, prostitution is legal, and many techno gadgets make life seem much more convenient. I also liked how the author revealed some of Eve’s background so that we can understand what drives her. I can’t wait to dive into the next one! Four stars.
