The incomparable J. D. Robb presents the latest moving and suspenseful novel in the #1 New York Times–bestselling Eve Dallas series.

In a decrepit, long-empty New York building, Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s husband begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, there are two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. He summons his wife immediately—and by the time she’s done with the crime scene, there are twelve murders to be solved.

The place once housed a makeshift shelter for troubled teenagers, back in the mid-2040s, and Eve tracks down the people who ran it. Between their recollections and the work of the force’s new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the remains. They are all young girls. A tattooed tough girl who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Then Eve discovers a connection between the victims and someone she knows. And she grows even more determined to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary—and the evil concealed in one human heart.

    Excellent and surprisingly exciting
  • Another great book

    By Ggranny6
    I have read every one of these books in this series. This one is not a disappointment. Same strong characters, story line etc. Looking forward to the next one. Recommend highly. Each book stands alone but the series is also connected.
  • Outstanding.

    By Rescuedragon
    If you are looking for excellence in crime and mystery, Nora Roberts is the best. Her attention to detail, from a snow flake on a warm hat, to the persona of her characters is outstanding. She keeps you guessing until the very end.
  • Awesome read

    I have read every book in the series, obviously, but I seriously think this was the best of the lot, and that's saying something as they are all really good.
  • JD rocks

    Another top-notch book about my favorite detective. Lieut. Dallas rocks! I love the way that Ms. Roberts makes her characters so sympathetic when you finish a book you really feel like you know every single one of them.
  • Sickeningly mawkish

    By CentralCALady
    The plot invites but does not require the smarmy, sickening portrayals especially of the Peabody character. She has to go! Worthless, gushing, ignorant cow. And Dennis the Dumb is just nauseating. Too much Roarke mooing at Eve to continue the bovine metaphor. I hated reading this trash. If the author wants to switch to sickening, cloying romance writing let her at least be honest about it and end this pathetic series.
  • Boring

    I've read all the Dalas books, have been a fan for he past 3 years. I loved the book about their vacation to Ireland. I believe that the books are popular because of the personal story about one or more of the characters that is woven into the book, that seemed to be missing in this story.
