In the new Eve Dallas police thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author J. D. Robb, what looked like a lover’s quarrel turned fatal has larger—and more terrifying—motives behind it…

The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Dallas tracks down the wealthy Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don’t add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, comforted by her handsome fiancé as she sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body—but why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things?

As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find that the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within—and soon they’re getting the FBI involved in a case that involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy.


  • First JD Robb book I could not finish

    By mjseik
    There were so many instances where Robb’s voice was either not present or the attempt was so off the mark that I struggled and eventually had to stop trying to finish this book. I have read every JD Robb book since the series start and have never experienced this kind of disconnect. Because of this, I’m hesitant to buy the next book in the series. This book was belabored, lacked the usual rhythm and flow, and the character nuances always so present in past books eas tortured beyond recognition.

    Best one yet!
  • Doesn’t disappoint!

    By DLoveReader
    Love these books and always looking for the same intrigue and heart connection that this writer brings in other series but other authors don’t come close to JD Robb (Nora R)!
  • Slow start, fast ending

    By Metwonothree
    As stated, slow at the beginning until around page 400-450ish. Good, albeit fast ending. I’m always a little bummed to end the stories before the victory party, but this was satisfying nonetheless.
  • Thrilling

  • SO GOOD!!!

    By gibbs#1fan
    I’ve purchased every book in the death series. I worried that this one wouldn’t be as good. It’s SO good! I couldn’t put it down. I hope the next one is this good. Can’t wait!!!
  • Faithful in Death

    Knocked this one out of the ballpark.
  • Tedious,affected, and preachy

    By Govhack
    I wanted a good police read and bought this book. I was highly disappointed and quit after reading about a quarter of the book. First, it is tediously written with more boring detail about irrelevant issues than anyone needs. Second, the author uses an affected writing style that refers to phones as 'links and other euphemisms that aren't even clever. Finally, the book sets up an unrealistic "straw man" organizations to condemn and serve as a vehicle for virtue signaling. Overall, a waste of money.
