Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Wilfred B. Icove has been found dead in his office – efficiently murdered by one stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, Eve Dallas suspects a professional killing. Security discs show a woman calmly entering and leaving the building – the doctor’s final appointment. Known as “Dr Perfect”, Icove devoted his life to his family and his work. His record is clean. Too clean for Dallas. She knows he was hiding something and suspects that his son knows what it is.

A much lauded doctor is murdered and Eve gets the case. She uncovers more than murder and knows the doctor should not be lauded. This was good. Eve has to deal with family.

Things start off normal with Eve interviewing a starlet who was beaten by her lover right before she killed hi...
