NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas keeps the streets of a near-future New York City safe in this extraordinary series. But even she makes mistakes, and is haunted by those she couldn't save-and the killers she couldn't capture. When the body of a young brunette is found in East River Park, artfully positioned and marked by signs of prolonged and painful torture, Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier. The city was on edge from a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days, courtesy of a man the media tagged "The Groom"- because he put silver rings on the fingers of his victims.

When it turns out that the young brunette was employed by Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him in on the case-a move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made his attack personal. The victim was washed in products from a store Roarke owns, and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures.

With the Groom's monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, Eve knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. Time is running out on another woman's life.

And chances are he's working up to the biggest challenge of his illustrious career-abducting a woman who will test his skills and who promises to give him days and days of pleasure before she dies: Eve.

Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die - in hours, minutes and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring.
Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man whom the media tagged "The Groom" put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. Eve and her partner Feeney, her friend and mentor, couldn't stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started.
When it turns out that The Groom's most recent victim was employed by Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case. A move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. With The Groom's monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim.
But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career - an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he's never known. Time is running out on another woman's life ... and for Eve.

This book is very intense and wrought with fierce detective work and horrifying detail about the serial killer's torturous methods. It was compelling, but also a bit dark and graphic for my personal tastes.

YAWN!!!!! Maybe it's time to stop reading this series. This one was the same old, same old, same old, SAME OLD!!! Very disappointing.

Loved the book-JD Robb never fails to deliver. Plot was dark as usual but Eve Dallas along with Roarke always saves the day.

Eve frantically tries to find and stop a serial killer before time runs out for his next victim. With practically the entire police force at her disposal, the hunt is fast and furious. The killer has captured his latest victim, whom he tortures with various means of pain; heat, cold, sharp, dull. He 'works', then rests, then continues his 'work', enjoying their pain. The final gift he gives them is of death, and he carves the amount of time they survived into their body before he strategically places them in pose to be found. This time around, there is a connection- the latest victims work for one of Roarke's enterprises. But that is not the only connection, or his goal. His goal is to make Eve his final masterpiece and victim.
