I could not pick a favorite book out of it if I tried. This one pits Eve against a killer of dirty cops in New York in the year 2059. The first cop killed is moonlighting at a club called Purgatory which happens to be owned by Eve's husband Roarke. The normal cast of characters shows up in this installment also - Peabody, McNab, Feeney, Dr. Mira, Sommerset, Mavis, et al... I've grown quite fond of the characters in this series and their interactions with each other, Eve and Peabody especially make me chuckle.
Before you know it, two more cops are dead and Eve has her sights set on nailing a powerful mafia-type crime boss who she believes is behind the whole thing.
This series has it all...crime, punishment, sex, bad guys, futuristic crime fighting and a little bit of comic relief thrown in for good measure. I give this book 5 stars out of 5. I give the whole series a 5/5. Highly recommended....more

The police don't have many clues to follow and soon the case gets relegated to the cold case files. Everyone seems to have given up on finding Alina's killer, even Mac's parents, so she flies to Dublin herself to see if she can find anything out. Almost immediately strange things start to happen to her - hallucinations mostly - and when she has one in a local pub, she finds out about something called a Sinsar Dubh. Mac has no idea what that is, but every time she mentions it, people get mighty peculiar.
Eventually she meets Jericho Barrons, wealthy and mysterious owner of Barrons Books and Baubles, who at first tries to warn her away from Dublin, telling her she has no idea what she is getting herself into. Turns out that Mac is a Sidhe-Seer, someone who can see beneath the glamour of the mystical Fae and see them for what they truly are underneath...horribly disfigured monsters. She also meets V'lane, an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women. V'lane is a seelie Fae, the lighter or fairer of the two classes, and therefore completely irresistible. The ugly Fae are called the unseelies.(I know...I rolled my eyes too, but it's really a good book.)
The Sinsar Dubh is a centuries old book of the most powerful magic ever known and everyone is after it including Fae, mobsters, vampires and Barrons himself. When he discovers Mac is not only a Sidhe-Seer, but a Null (one who can freeze the Fae for an instant and who gets nauseous every time she is near anything to do with the Sinsar Dubh or the Fae) he teams up with Mac to find the book.
This is the first book in a series and there is a cliffhanger at the end, so they are best read in order.
