As usual, Ms. Robb keeps you on the edge of your seat and reading frantically to the end. Although there are some humorous exchanges, most of the book is deadly serious as Eve comes face to face with her past and has to deal with it while Roarke does his level best to keep her secure and physically well. There are a host of new characters and many from the New York end are brought in by link or transpo to keep the reader in touch with our favorites, but one can't help but miss the give and take between Peabody and Eve, Sommerset and Eve, Peabody and McNab, Peabody and Roarke and so on. There is a brief mention of Strong from the last book at the beginning of this one and one can only hope there will be more mentions in the future. The Jones' twins in Dallas were strong characters this time around and hopefully will not drop completely from sight now that their situation has been resolved - again. I do like to see Eve's eclectic "family" included whenever possible. They are becoming old friends and each new book provides another opportunity to revisit, which is one of Robb's strengths. Another is that you can always depend on Robb for great, fast-paced tales of courage and well-executed investigations, even when there are mistakes.
