After nearly a year of marriage, Eve Dallas and Roarke should be planning their anniversary. But an arrest Eve made in her past is about to resurfaceJulie Dunne, who specialized in killing her wealthy husbands via poison, was released from prison. Because of claims of abuse as a child, Julie was given a much lighter sentence that Eve would have liked.

Julie announces her arrival back on the scene by poisoning wealthy Walter Pettibone. When Eve makes the connection, she knows that Julie is after revenge and Roarke could be one of her next targets.

Eve and Roarke are back and in exceptional form. The progress of this multifaceted relationship is a magnificent ride that just keeps getting better. When you add on the layer of top-notch suspense, it forms a truly unbeatable mix. (Mar., 384 pp., $7.99)
