It was a stab in the dark.
On a chilly February night, during a screening of
Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the
back of Chanel Rylan's neck, then disappeared quietly into
the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To
Chanel's best friend, who had just slipped out of the
theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as
the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But
Chanel's blood ran red, and her death was anything but
Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems
carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip
from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who
recognizes the crime―from the pages of her own book.
doesn't think it's coincidence, since a recent strangulation
of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well.
Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar
MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone
else's imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be
only the second of a long-running series.
The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke
have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with
their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research.
The bad news is that time is running out before the next
victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer's deranged
private drama―and only Eve can put a stop to a creative
impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.
From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the
latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals
that Publishers Weekly calls "inventive,
entertaining, and clever."
