Once again Eve Dallas' past comes back to bite her. This time, it is in the form of the foster mother who took her in for a few months after she was found wandering on the streets as a child. At first Dallas doesn't remember her, but then it hits her that this is the woman who tormented and tortured her by doing everything from starving her to locking her in a dark room for the 6 months Eve endured her before running away. This time, Eve chases her away with the threat of locking her in a cage before she finds out why "Momma True" is visiting her at the police station. Later, Roark does see her in his office only to discover she wants "hush money" or threatens to reveal Eve's past to the press and her superiors...threatens to reveal what a "nasty" little girl Eve was. She obviously hasn't done her homework though because Roark scares the devil out of her, threating to make her disappear after personally chopping her to bits if she doesn't back off. By the time Eve and Roark play catch up and compare notes, Eve decides she needs to face this monster from her past face to face. Of course, when Eve and Roark get to Momma True's hotel room, someone else has already been to visit and Momma True will blackmail no more. Eve, being the cop of all cops, knows she has to solve this murder to truly but her past behind her. Another good Eve Dallas mystery!
