Seduction in Death
A young woman dies on the sidewalk outside her building. Unfortunately, she arrived there over the balcony of her own apartment. Lt. Eve Dallas is the primary office who responds to the call. As the investigation starts, she quickly learns Byrna Bankhead died before she left her own bedroom.
Bankhead had told a friend she was meeting a cyberdate in an open area. The online corresponder seemed like her dream man. She still was savvy enough not to meet him alone and had not planned on bringing him back to her apartment. She was going to take this slowly. What happened between the time she told her friend her plans and the violent end of the date.
Dallas pulls in Peabody, Feeny, McNabb, and starts looking for a cyber predator. Before she gets very far, another woman is killed. Expensive illegal drugs releasing inhibitions are found in the victims' systems. The deaths have many similarities, yet enough differences to add to the puzzle. Plus Dallas can identify with the victims. Her childhood gave her too many opportunities to know what happens to victims who have no choice.
Once again Robb has given us mystery that keeps moving. The antogonists are identified early, which bothered me. But this is not a murder aimed at Eve Dallas or her husband Roarke, so it is necessary to show the people behind the murders. This is not one where we would stumble across the perpetrators otherwise. I was more involved in Peabody's and McNabb's relationship by the end of the novel than the murder solution. I didn't put it down while reading it, yet won't care if I don't pick it up again.
