Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas must find a Casanova who kills. Women meet their killer online. He says all the right things and arranges the perfect setting only to pump them full of date rape drugs and kill them. Dallas was a victim of rape and child abuse and this case hits a little too close to home.
The killer changes his appearance to suit his victim and seems to be able to hide his electronic trail rather well. Enter Roarke, Dallas' husband and owner of nearly everything. Roarke with his fancy equipment and superb technological ability assists Dallas.
Delia Peabody, Dallas's assistant and Ian McNab come to better terms about their on-off relationship.
This book is a good mystery but I love the continuing development of characters. Dallas is better at accepting help from Roarke but is as stubborn as ever when she is side-lined with the flu. I also liked the uncomfortableness when Dallas is asked for relationship advice from Peabody.
First Line: "Death came in dreams."
