Technology has advanced in 2060 New York City, but childbirth has been the same since the beginning of time. And despite the brutal double homicide on Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s caseload, she has to be there for her pregnant friend Mavis, even if it means throwing the dreaded baby shower. . . But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date – not even showing up at the shower at Eve and Roarke’s place that she’d been looking forward to so much. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family. When Eve enters Tandy’s apartment and finds Mavis’s shower gift wrapped and ready on the table - and Tandy’s packed hospital bag still on the floor - her spine starts tingling. Normally, this would be turned over to Missing Persons. Eve has more than enough on her plate trying to find out who murdered Natalie Copperfield and her fiancé, both employed at a highly prestigious accounting firm. But Mavis wants no one but Eve on the case - and Eve can’t say no. She’ll have to track Tandy down while tracing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city’s richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against a particularly vicious killer. Luckily, she has her multimillionaire husband Roarke’s expertise to help with the numbers-crunching. But as he mines for the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all-too-real danger in the flesh-and-blood world.

While Dallas has two murders in an accounting firm to deal with, Mavis comes to her about a missing friend who is in her childbirth class. Eva takes on the case to keep Mavis calm and happy. I liked this story. I liked seeing Eve and Roarke freaked out about Mavis and her impending childbirth. ...
Lieutenant Eve Dallas isn't having a good few days. Her best friend is about to give birth and Eve is supposed to be there, which to her is one of the worst nightmares (and she knows nightmares), she's dealing with a double homicide connected to one of the most prominent financial firms in the city,...
First, to borrow from Baxter too: "Coincidences are hooey" Second: I feel like I'm watching a half-season series. Whenever the case is so-so, the interpersonal can more than pick up the slack. Third: the whole baby thing carried me in laughter. There were some touching too “Hello, my baby. He...
I'm still a little stuck on Tandy's disappearance and the main case (the murders of a young couple who seemed to have no enemies) being connected. I'm not sure how useful this review is going to be, since I've already started on Innocent in Death and I finished this book yesterday. The layers of ...
