Romance Suspense | Thriller
In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can
help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the
most advanced technologies cannot answer.
Pearson has praised J. D. Robb's suspense as "taut" and

brings the chalice to his lips—and falls over dead.
When Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas confirms that the
consecrated wine contained potassium cyanide, she's
determined to solve the murder of Father Miguel Flores,
despite her discomfort with her surroundings. It's not the
bodegas and pawnshops of East Harlem that bother her, though

progress on the case. Until a second murder—in front of an
even larger crowd of worshipers—knocks the whole
investigation sideways. And Eve is left to figure out who
committed these unholy acts—and why.
