When a woman is found dead on the pavement, suspected of being thrown off her balcony, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called to the scene. She brings her aide Peabody and they quickly determine that the woman was dead before she fell. Digging in to her past, Dallas finds that the woman was scheduled to meet a man she met in a chat room for poet enthusiasts. Following the threads, Dallas determines that the man she met drugged her with two different drugs and served her very expensive wine before raping and killing her.
Once again, Peabody and McNab are at each others throats for most of the book. When they finally get back together it's a bit of a relief. Hopefully it stays that way for the rest of the series because their whining is childish and annoying.
There's really nothing to say for this novel that I haven't said for every previous novel in the past. It was fun and thrilling at the same time!
First Line: "Death came in dreams."
