Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In the new Eve Dallas police thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb, what looks like a lover's quarrel turned fatal has larger-and more terrifying-motives behind it"-- Provided by publisher.
"The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Dallas tracks down the wealthy Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don't add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, comforted by her handsome fiancé as she sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body - but why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things? As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find that the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within - and soon they're getting the FBI involved in a case that involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy."--Publisher.

    Nothing ticks off NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas like a lying witness, unless it is a lying witness who also happens to be a murderer. Eve knows the story that Gwen Huffman is spinning should set her pants on fire, but does that mean that Gwen's a liar and a killer? Gwen claims that after discovering the body of sculptor Ariel Byrd, she went into shock and returned home to her apartment, where it took her over an hour to process what she saw before calling the police. Eve suspects there is much more to Gwen's story, but she does have a rock-solid alibi for the time of Ariel's murder. So the question remains, is Gwen really just the innocent witness she claims to be or did she play a more active role in the crime? With the fifty-second exceptional entry in her Eve Dallas series, Robb (aka Nora Roberts) once again hits her readers' sweet spot by serving up another addictive mix of high-octane pacing, memorable characterization, and ingenious plotting.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The usual big-dollar, multiplatform and multimedia marketing campaign, and mega print run guarantees that fans will have the book's one-day laydown penciled in on their reading calendars.
