Summer, 2059. A man wearing a cape and a top hat approaches a prostitute on a dark, New York City street. Minutes later, the woman is dead. Left at the scene is a letter addressed to Lieutenant Eve Dallas, inviting her to play his game and unveil his identity. He signs it, "Jack." Now Dallas is in pursuit of a murderer who knows as much about the history of serial killers as she does. He has studied the most notorious and the most vicious slayings in modern times. But he also wants to make his own mark. He has chosen his victim: Eve Dallas. And all Eve knows is that he plans to mimic the most infamous murderers of all — starting with Jack the Ripper...

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 5/24/2017

    " Who else besides Eve Dallas would know enough history about serial killers to be able to spout the characteristics, methods, and motives for the world's most infamous serial killers! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaye | 3/21/2016

    " I generally like J D Robb books but this one had so many curse words in it that it was hard to follow the story line. I had to give up on this one. If someone has listened to her other books that do not have curse words through out I would be glad to read your recommendations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie Jamieson | 2/18/2014

    " I like the copy cat kind of feel to this book. I listened to this one as an audio book while on vacation and still cant help but laugh at the woman reading it trying to be Roarke. He is so hot in my mind that she ruins it a bit. Still enjoyed it very much though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 2/18/2014

    " Man, guilty pleasure all the way .. love these books! This is #17 ... 18 more to go before I'm current. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 2/13/2014

    " Another great story. Yah for Peabody, she had two great surprises and once her and McNab move in we will see how things go with that. Things are looking up for Roarke and his new family while Eve is remembering a little more of her daunting past. Summerset on vacation, how could he :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 2/1/2014

    " These are murder/detective books that are addictive! They generally have 1-2 smutty parts, but the book overall is a "can't put down." I liked the entire series by J.D. Robb - a pen name for Nora Roberts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Photojim | 1/13/2014

    " This one was certainly more of a mystery. Several red herrings and dead ends also. Really liked it. Eve is still the best and Peabody is still uber-cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paxton J. | 12/12/2013

    " Great book, can't wait until I can get my hands on the next one :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 11/25/2013

    " I loved this book the story was wonderful, but the cover of the edition I read I already knew who did it due to the cover picture and it totally ruined it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 6/13/2013

    " Good for Peabody. Excellent story; whole cast involved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 5/23/2013

    " This book was SOOOOOOOOOOOO interesting!!!! It seemed different than many of her other books, with a slightly less dramatic ending. It spent a lot of time exploring the character of the suspects, and what made them tick. Definately an awesome book to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 3/18/2013

    " The author does such a great job with the character development in these books. I just love the characters and their stories and can't wait to see where she takes them next. The interaction between them all is great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina Mora | 12/19/2012

    " Great book, great mystery...she had me with so many excellent suspects that were all genuine dirtbags. Peabody finally takes the detective's exam AND Eve remembers her dirtbag of a mother. Good, quality mystery and an awesome walk-on by Mavis that I adored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonya Potts | 8/9/2012

    " I REALLY liked this book. I LOVE reading book on serial killer and watch movies about them, so having Eve chase a copycat killer of several different serial killers was AMAZING!!! I was sooooooo rooting for Breen, I really didn't want him to be the killer. He has one of my dream jobs! =) "

    What a great read! The crime was challenging, tricky and mysterious. At the same time, it was so fun reading about Roarke, Eve and company. Roarke tried bbq, priceless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 5/4/2011

    " Another top pick for me in the fav department.
    The case was fun, and interesting to try and keep up with and guess who done it.
    But most of all Peabody got her Detective shield!!!
    I was so happy for her, and I LOVE how Eve spring the partnership on her. She's so Ice. lol "

    " Just like all the JD Robb "...in death" books, this one is a nice, good guys win, entertaining read. I love the fact that you can pick up any of these books at any time without reading them in order and still know exactly what is going on. Makes them perfect Library books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 11/6/2010

    " Two-haiku review:

    Murderer aping
    Famous serial killers.
    What is he seeking?

    Eve ponders mothers,
    Remembers more about hers.
    Roarke helps her through it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 10/19/2010

    " In some ways, the admirable Peabody is the most lovable person in the series, with Somerset close behind.

    Both, foils for the exasperating Eve.

    And in this one, Peabody gets her rank! Huzzah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 9/30/2010

    " I'm feeling a little cheated and elated. I can listen to the abridged version in only 5 hours as opposed to 11... good and bad. I will be looking for the unabridged versions from now on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Photojim | 9/23/2010

    " This one was certainly more of a mystery. Several red herrings and dead ends also. Really liked it. Eve is still the best and Peabody is still uber-cool. "
