From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, comes a new novel in the futuristic series…Detective Eve Dallas investigates a homicide on familiar grounds: her husband’s hotel—and finds herself up against a murderer with a passion for the finer things in life—and death…

At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown—and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He’s Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn’t help solve the crime. Because there’s someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility—that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke…

Could be paying her duty call a little early.” “Hmmm. I want to run the boyfriend, Peabody. Barry Collins. If we swing with this being a hired job, somebody’s footing the bill. I don’t think a bellman’s got the wherewithal for Yost’s fee, but it could be he’s the connection to someone who does.” “Yost?” “Oh, sorry.

Whatever data you’ve got, whatever leads, whatever angles, you send to my home unit. Tonight.” “For Christ’s sake—” “All of it,” Eve said, edging forward. “Hold out on me, and I’ll bury you before it’s done.

And it discourages staff pilfering. You see?” “Yeah. From what you observed, she’d just gotten around to turning down the bed. There was music on. Would she have turned on the entertainment system?” “Yes, perhaps. But never at that volume. If the guest isn’t in the unit during evening turndown, the housekeeper programs
