On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park—and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of the lake. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes—removed with the precision of a surgeon—that have Dallas most alarmed. 

As more bodies turn up, each with the same defining scars, Eve is frantic for answers. Against her instincts, she accepts help from a psychic who offers one vision after another—each with shockingly accurate details of the murders. And when partner and friend Peabody is badly injured after escaping an attack, the stakes are raised. Are the eyes a symbol? A twisted religious ritual? A souvenir? With help from her husband, Roarke, Dallas must uncover the killer's motivation before another vision becomes another nightmare...


I started this series years ago and put it down at  book 18 I guess I just needed a break but after reading this one I now remember why I was so obsessed. This is such a great series.  I love Eve Dallas and her kick ass attitude and her husband Roarke who is handsome, sexy, beyond rich and just one keystroke away from being a criminal.  They have a very solid match and now that Eve is expanding her world to include, friends, its fun to watch how uncomfortable and how socially awkward she is.  While Roarke can seamlessly move back and forth between upper class events to hacking into police databases and operating diggers to uncover bodies Eve struggles with any personal interaction.  This is listed as romance but for me its like a sexier Law & Order SVU in its ability to capture my attention without needing too much brain power.
