Roarke ~ "It takes more than skill and duty to make a good cop.....it takes an unfailing sense of right and wrong"
Eve ~ "Yea, but it's a hell of a lot easier when they don't overlap."
I can't remember ever saying this before but, the plot of Missing in Death was too big for a novella. Fleshed out properly it had the potential of being a stellar full length novel. With spies, government agencies, high tech weaponry, missing people, and murder - it was an In Death home run just waiting to happen!!...more
