Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the beda seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn’t intended to kill her. But now that he had, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt. Or start hunting again…

A young woman meets the concrete in front of her apartment building. It looks like self-termination, until Lieutenant Eve Dallas enters the woman's apartment and finds a scene of seduction; wine, romantic music, rose petals on the bed...And the ME finds a deadly date rape drug cocktail in the woman'...
This was a bit darker of a book for the series. I think we are seeing somehting happening in Eve she will have to get help to face her past, and I know that Roarke has been trying to help but she doesn't seem to want to help him. But overall I loved this book! This series has been too much fun!
These deaths hit Eve hard. She has to rely on Roarke to get her through the investigation. I like her thinking pattern and how she can get into the mind of the killer. I love how Roarke always has her back. Love these two.
Another enjoyable entry to the series. Enjoyed the interludes with Peabody and McNab. Needed to refresh my brain about Dr Dimatto though!
This is one of the few of these that I remember. The start of the book (with Eve's nightmare and her missing Roarke) was familiar but it wasn't until the book goes to the suspects POV that I really remembered this book. I don't have that much to say about this book, aside from how disturbing it...
