The new novel featuring homicide detective Eve Dallas from the number 1 New York Times bestselling creator of Devoted in Death.
Sometimes brotherhood will also be another word for conspiracy. . . .
Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward used to be secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.
Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the very last thing he saw used to be Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin used to be gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left at the back of but a couple of traces for forensics to analyze.
As a former lawyer, pass judgement on, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies frequently. Like such a lot of politicians, he also made some very close friends at the back of closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives at the back of the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.
