Rupert recommended this, and I thoroughly enjoyed it – so much so that I’m right now ordering the first in the series from the library. That one will apparently tell me how Eve met Roarke. I like the characters – they’re almost caricatured, but are enjoyable. The story is fast, the detective work is solid, and is enhanced by the slightly futuristic setting.

In this book, Eve is stunned to find herself visited by a woman claiming to be her mother. At first Eve has no idea who the woman is, but then the repressed memories begin to return and she promptly sends the woman, who was her foster mother for a few months, packing. The woman then visits Eve’s husband, Roarke, and attempts to blackmail them for $2 million. When Eve and Roarke decide to visit her to “make sure she understood the message clearly”, they find her murdered.

I imagine the next book will have more on Eve’s memories, especially the death of her father at her own hands.
