    • Abstract:
      Summary: "The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park's ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be. Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the locations where the shooter could have set up seem endless, the list of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer. Eve's husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources--and genius--at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two--one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we're all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...." -- p. [4] cover.

What is the motive? When a long-distance serial killer (LDSK) begins targeting victims in New York City, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas, last seen in Devoted in Death (2015), believes that the killer must have a reason for targeting her city. If she can figure that out, and why the sniper is selecting his victims, she knows she can ultimately find him. Eve gets her first big break in the case when her husband, billionaire businessman Roarke, creates a computer model that helps narrow down the spot from which the sniper first began his murderous spree. Once Eve finds the killer's nest, however, she is in for a surprise, since it seems there isn't just one shooter but two: a master sniper and an apprentice being trained in the cold-blooded business of murder. With more than 42 books in her popular Eve Dallas series, Robb (pseudonym for best-selling Nora Roberts) shows no sign of literary fatigue as she delivers to her multitude of fans another polished thriller containing her signature mix of high-stakes suspense and sexy romance.

PW Reviews 2016 July #2

At the start of bestseller Robb's exceptional 43rd Eve Dallas thriller set in a near-future New York City (after Brotherhood in Death), three ice skaters are shot dead at Wollman Rink in Central Park. Adding to the difficulty of the murder investigation is the weapon used—a tactical laser rifle with a range up to two miles. Eve's team swings into action, as does tech-genius husband Roarke, in an effort to locate the firing site and to determine whether all the victims were random or one or more were targeted. On discovering the sniper nest, they realize that there are two people responsible for the shooting, and there will be more attacks; the second soon follows in Times Square, where four people die, including a cop. Feverish police work manages to identify the killers—a mentor and his trainee—and the race is on to stop them. Robb is in peak form as she blends intense action and clever twists with a stellar cast headed by the indomitable Lt. Eve Dallas. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.)
