When recovering drug addict Lyle Pickering is found dead of an overdose, it looks like a tragic accident. But his sister Rochelle knows better, and so does Lieutenant Eve Dallas. Lyle was murdered, and the evidence points to his old street gang.
As Eve and husband Roarke track the killer through the city's dive bars, drug dens and strip joints, another body is found. With connections growing between the living and the dead, Eve realises this could be the start of a brutal turf war between rival gangs. She needs close this case fast, before the violence bleeds out into New York's streets.
J D Robb does it again with the latest installment in her 'in death' series. This one follows Eve Dallas as she investigates the murder of a recovering drug addict, who happens to be the brother of Roarke's newest hire. Did Lyle get in between rival gangs looking to start a war, or was he an innocent victim? The body count is rising and Dallas needs to pull out all the stops for this one. - Shannon (QBD)
