Summary:
Found alone on the streets as a child, Eve Dallas has built a new identity and a new future as a cop. Now the hard-edged and coolheaded detective fights for truth and justice, but she still has one very human weakness-enigmatic Irish billionaire, Roarke. And when a trusted employee of Roarke Enterprises is a suspect in a double-homicide, Roarke comes to Eve for help. Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and now a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises-until she was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned artist Blair Bissel, and her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killing than jealous rage-all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted. To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat. He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists. But this deadly new breed of hackers isn't afraid to kill to protect their secret-and it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole country.

Library Journal Review

When a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises is framed for murder, Eve Dallas takes the case and finds it full of red herrings. She and her elite crew of techno-geeks follow each one, human and electronic, to cull truth from appearance. After gulps of real coffee and meals that include real beef served up by the charming Roarke on his new barbeque, they close on this complicated case. Characters continue to develop as Eve and Roarke face a crisis in their marriage, Peabody imitates Eve as she comes to terms with her new job, and the mysterious candy thief continues to rob Eve of her chocolate with impunity. Filled with humor and tension, this is another enjoyable mystery read by the talented and skilled Susan Ericksen; her range of voices and accents and ability to pull each character in without missing a beat bring listeners to the center of the story and leave them wanting more.
