Ah, Lt. Eve Dallas is back in New York where she should be. After the trauma of Dallas, she is back ready to do her job.

Unfortunately, her job now involves being a part of a movie - a vid - about one of her famous cases. She hates the socializing and dressing up but Roarke is with her so she goes along with it. The entire cast is gathered at this party so the actors playing Eve, Peabody, Roarke get to meet their real life counterparts. They're all typical actors except for the one playing Peabody - K. T. Harris. She is particularly rude and snarky, a mean drunk. The buzz is that she's always like that. After dinner, they all watch a blooper reel, during which time, several people leave the home theatre. After the reel, two of the actors discover Ms. Harris floating in the rooftop lap pool. It looks like she was drunk, fell and hit her head, and stumbled into the pool. Tragic, accidental death.

But this is an Eve Dallas book so we know there is no accidental death. As she digs into the case, it becomes clear that no one liked K. T. They all had their reasons but the biggest reason seems to be that she had dirt on every one of them. So whose secret past is worth killing someone to keep it quiet?

Along with solving the case, Eve begins to quietly deal with the revelations of the last book. Roarke, who already is the greatest hero in any book written in the modern era, goes above and beyond heroics this time. He is there beside Eve anticipating her every need and being there for her when the nightmares start. Another great book about my favorite detective.
