In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the year 2060 is drawing to a close in New York City and loved ones are coming together for Thanksgiving. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water…

Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke’s big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn’t made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him—but they didn’t think he was capable of this.

Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he’s stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry’s going to strike next.


  • Good Reading

    This book had it all...humor, sorrow and pleasure. Overall, a really good read. It was poignant on so many levels and exhibited Dallas' softer side - particularly dealing with a young girl victimized and shattered through no fault of her own.

    The murder scenes were very graphic. But I so enjoy reading about Eve, Roark, Peabody and Ian and all the friends and relatives. I love the relationships being built and nurtured with all the characters. And the way characters from other books show back up again. I love this series.

    This book, quite perfect to read around the Thanksgiving holiday. Great story as all are in this series. I was anxious for Eve to catch the perp at the end. A mix of police business and family happenings is cool too!

    One of JD Robb's best! A real thriller from the first page. Less character development and more focus on the action and the investigation. Loved it!

    One star because I had to skip half the book, too gross!

    One of the best Nora has ever written. I have a new favorite. Couldn't put it down, it was so cool to see a different side to Eve and Roarke with their family and friends. Will be rereading this one over and over again
