This is the only book without the...In Death...in the title. It’s the summer of 2060. A monster from Eve’s past has escaped prison and forces her to play a game of ‘catch-me-if-you-can’.
Isaac McQueen is a dangerous pedophile. Twelve years ago, while conducting a neighbourhood canvass following a mugging, a rookie finds more than she bargained for. Dallas’s cop instincts were good even then, and a killer was apprehended.
Now he’s out and after Eve. He takes his game to Dallas, Texas, and she has no choice but to follow. Dallas is where she was found as a child, the name she was given when she couldn’t remember her own. Dallas is the city of her nightmares.
The nightmares are back, more fierce than ever with the return to Dallas, with the similarity between McQueen and her father mixed up in her head.
I think the author has made this book a sort of turning point for Eve. Her past is revealed and she must deal with the memories that have haunted her and a present that constantly brings that horror back. She works with the FBI and the Dallas police, her team working the case back in New York.
Roarke is with her, of course, and he’s the only one who knows that she is dealing with so much more than just the case. They have become such a strong unit, each knowing and understanding the other, but in these extreme circumstances, even Roarke is struggling to know how to help.
There are many twists and turns in this book, and some surprises before the action packed ending.
