For the first time in Robb's exceptional series, things are not copacetic on the home front for Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke. One of the enduring strengths of this series is the relati#onship growth among all the characters, but especially Eve. The remarkable Robb perfectly balances gritty suspense, dangerous drama and pulse-pounding romance!

Craig Foster was a young, dedicated and kind teacher. So why would someone poison him? It's a puzzling case, and for once Eve is not at her best -- she's distracted by a ghost from Roarke's past. Eve pegs Magdalena Percell as big trouble the moment she
sees her, but Roarke seems oblivious
to her machinations.

More than a decade ago, Roarke
and Magdalena were an item before she dumped him. And while Eve suspects that Magdalena is stalking Roarke, he refuses to believe it. For once, the usually self-confident Eve wonders if she suffers in comparison to this rich and elegant woman. Still, Eve is not one to back down from a challenge or let a murderer escape justice -- no matter how innocent they appear. (PUTNAM, Feb., 400 pp., $25.95)
