A brand-new novel in the number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series set in 2059 New York City. As technology and humanity collide, Detective Eve Dallas searches the darkest corners of Manhattan for an elusive killer with a passion for collecting souls... On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park-and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of the lake. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes-removed with such precision, as if done with the careful hands of a surgeon-that have Dallas most alarmed. As more bodies turn up, each with the same defining scars, Eve is frantic for answers. Against her instincts, she accepts help from a psychic who offers one vision after another-each with shockingly accurate details of the murders. And when partner and friend Peabody is badly injured after escaping an attack, the stakes are raised. Are the eyes a symbol? A twisted religious ritual? A souvenir? With help from her husband, Roarke, Dallas must uncover the killer's motivation before another vision becomes another nightmare. . . .

This was a light and easy impulse read before I embark again on my more literary projects. I've read a couple of these "In Death" mysteries before; they're set in the 2050s in an entirely recognizable New York City. I had no trouble navigating the relatively minor tweaks that Robb introduces to make...
A serial killer is lose in NYC and he takes the eyes of the women he has raped and killed. Eve gets the case and she finds other cases of missing persons that may be related. She also has a psychic who tells her she has visions of the murders. It gets more personal when Peabody is attacked.I like th...
The end of this book is completely random. Someone else is connected to this case and it just seems so surreal to me, even after reading it. Nothing else to say, really. Why are so many of Eve's cases sexual homicides?
Another Eve Dallas story where Eve finds out that having friends is a good thing while she investigates a nasty serial killer, while being fed information from a psychic. A great twist in the tail as well!
