In hardcover for the first time, here is the novel that started it all-the first book in J. D. Robb's number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series, featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke. It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion. When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome . . . and the leading suspect in the investigation.

3.5/5 starsDidn't really live up to my expectations. I think the writing style isn't a 100% my thing. Not a bad book, interesting plot. Wasn't really feeling their connection. I will probably try the next book, but maybe not right away.
I would give this 3.5 stars. It is a typical murder mystery only the story is set about 50 years in the future. Some of the science fiction stuff was interesting, but none of it was necessary for the story. I liked some of the character building, but found that some of the decisions the character...
