Publisher’s Description: The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wine glasses 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.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
As you all know, I LOVE Eve Dallas and Roarke. Late 2018, I started the whole series over again. I caught things I’d forgotten and fell in love with the characters all over again. I studied the changes of Dallas and Roarke and it was fun to watch the evolution. By the way, I have 2 books left yet for the whole series, but I couldn’t wait.
There is sex, swearing and violence, but the good guy always win. This story was fantastic. It was involved and definitely a page turner. Roarke was involved deeply as was Mavis, Nadine, Peabody, McNabb and all the crew from the homicide division. If I was Eve Dallas, I wouldn’t have had the guts to do what she did to find out the murderer of the main victim in this case. She is one strong Lieutenant and this story showcased Roarke’s skills in a very in your face kind of way. If anyone continues to wonder about his past, this story will definitely get them to thinking.
I did not do any research on the story at all before starting, so I was surprised by the direction it took, but again, Eve and her crew saved a lot of lives in the end. Amazing story with a kind of Jim Jones type twist. Another hit out of the park.
