Synopsis: Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Wilfred B. Icove has been found dead in his office – efficiently murdered by one stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, Eve Dallas suspects a professional killing. Security discs show a woman calmly entering and leaving the building – the doctor’s final appointment. Known as “Dr Perfect”, Icove devoted his life to his family and his work. His record is clean. Too clean for Dallas. She knows he was hiding something and suspects that his son knows what it is. With her husband Roarke working behind the scenes, Dallas follows her instincts into the Icoves’ pasts. And what she discovers are men driven to create perfection – playing fast and loose with the laws of nature...

Review: Doctors who play God are a fascination, a fear and disturbing reality in this world.  This book definitely had a creep factor that made me angry and glued to the page.  I was a little confused in the end on whether or not some of the craziness escaped but I guess if it did I will find out in another book.  These books are just a guilty pleasure and Eve, Roarke and all the others are like old friends.  I love this series and this is one of the better ones.
