In this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the lawâ€”including the ones sworn to uphold it.
Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crimeâ€”an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabodyâ€™s first case as primary detectiveâ€”good thing she learned from the master.
But soon Peabody stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, sheâ€™s all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open, andâ€”while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a soundâ€”she overhears two fellow officers arguing. It doesnâ€™t take long to realize theyâ€™re both crookedâ€”guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eveâ€™s husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring down the dirty copsâ€”knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.
