Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York
City police force from Atlanta, but she’s been a cop long enough to
know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she’s taken down
just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve
the victim isn’t just 'one of us.'
Dallas’s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious
relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed
for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that.
After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone,
including Coltraine’s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve’s
husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman’s life back
in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this
case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.
The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting
with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing
Coltraine’s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: 'You can have them
back. Maybe someday soon, I’ll be sending yours to somebody else.' But
Eve Dallas doesn’t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is
going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that’s a promise.
