As the title implies Eve leaves her beloved New York and goes to Dallas. The city in which she killed her father, when she was 8, which always seems to haunt her and gives her nightmares. Roarke of course doesn't let her go alone.

Issac MacQueen, pedofile and murderer, escapes prison and heads to Dallas to draw Eve away from her comfort zone. Eve had put him in gaol only 6 weeks after graduating from the Police Academy and he blames her for the last 12 years of his incarceration.

Issac uses women to do all his domestic & criminal activities, including luring young girls for his pleasure. So he always has a woman partner until he gets tired of them, slits their throats and throws them in the river. His partner in Dallas is a big surprise to Eve and I won't say any more about that as it would be a huge spoiler.

Of course, Issac's purpose is to kill Eve, as well as raping young girls. Just like Eve's father. And that plays out right to the end.

Loved this one even though we get little of all the great regulars, but we do get a whole lot of Roarke, and that makes up for it.
