Bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as JD Robb, introduces readers to New York City in 2058 and to Eve Dallas, a New York Police Lieutenant.
'There was always an audience for murder . . .'
Opening night at New York's New Globe Theatre turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death right on centre stage.
Now Eve Dallas has a high profile celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she primary detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband, Roarke, owns the theatre, there's more media interest than either can handle.
The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone - and everything. And in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth - and really good acting . . .
