Description:

Here is the novel that started it all- the first book in J.D. Robb's number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series, featuring New York homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.

It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing: passion.

When a senator's granddaughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washington politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation.

My Thoughts: 

In this book which I know many of you have read but some may not so I thought I'd offer my thoughts on it,  So in this book we meet Eve Dallas whose a New York cop and the year is 2058.  Eve has been sidelined for testing over a previous case to see if she is up to her job, that gets all sidetracked when someone is found dead and Eve is called in.  

Eve is a unique character having gotten her name due to where she was found and not her birth name.  She has little information about her history, just a buried past that she wants to forget exists.  When investigating the death of senator's granddaughter she meets up with Roarke who feels drawn to Eve and no clue why.  

This book had Eve all over the place trying to figure whose killing working girls and why?  Add a yummy man to the mix and you've entered the world of Eve Dallas, which reminds me I really out to return to much going on to keep a girl down!
