Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing
with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges 37 stories
and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa." But
when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows
up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together.
Instantly, she's thrown back into the past, to the days
when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl - trapped in
foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front
of her, smiling.
Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But
Eve's husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise - and his
suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office,
demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details
of his wife's childhood a secret. Barely restraining
himself, Roarke shows her the door - and makes it clear
that she'd be wise to get out of New York and never bother
him or his wife again.
But just a few days later, Trudy's found on the floor of
her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the
core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the
sake of Trudy's bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not
the only one to have suffered at this woman's hands, and
she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to
find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.
