But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she’s all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn’t take long to realize they’re both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve’s husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

I wasn’t sure I was in the mood for this book, but I normally love the Eve Dallas series, so I gave it a try. I am so glad I did. This one was even better than normal. Although you know who the bad guy is from the beginning, the search for evidence was fascinating.
Another plus for this book is that some books in this series are very graphic in the horrors the victims experience. This one did not dwell on that aspect which I certainly appreciate.
It’s funny that I don’t normally read Nora Roberts’ (J. D. Robb’s real name) books. I have read some and enjoyed them, but they are definitely not on my “must read” list. I never miss an Eve Dallas book though.
