The basic set-up is that Dennis Mira, the husband of the profiler Eve works with, is attacked while trying to meet up with his cousin about selling a house left to them by their grandfather. The cousin disappears and, since Eve is a homicide cop, is later found dead. Eve has to figure out who killed him and why. Simple enough set-up. The whole thing ends up not so simple or black and white in the end.
There is family drama and growth between Eve and Roarke, which did feel a teeny bit shoehorned, but it did work out in the end. We got to see more of Dennis Mira, whom most of us fans are just a little bit in love with. Seriously, forget Roarke, I'd take Dennis any day. Oh, and Trueheart gets a nice scene between him and Eve.
Overall, this book was pretty good. My only quibble was with the drama between Eve and Roarke feeling a tad unnecessary.
