Summary
When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim's injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart -- and initials inside reading E and D ... Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don't ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo's got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else's. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone -- an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again. As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they've landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve

Review
  • The couple that slays together stays together. At least that is the romantic philosophy to which Ella-Loo Parsens and her brand new boyfriend, Darryl Roy James, subscribe. The first time they kill someone, they experience such a sexual rush, they know they will be doing this again and again. As the murderous couple wends their way north from Arkansas, they have a definite goal in mind, New York City. Ella and Darryl are determined to take their own bloody bite out of the Big Apple, beginning with musician Dorian Kuper. The one thing the duo doesn’t count on, however, is NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas. All of the literary ingredients readers have come to expect from Robb are accounted for here, including a nonstop, high-adrenaline plot, sexy chemistry between Eve and her billionaire hubby, Roarke, and contributions from the popular cast of secondary characters that make up Eve’s personal and professional support teams. This is all good crime fun, but squeamish readers beware. Robb includes vividly detailed scenes in which the killers torture their victims. -- Charles, John (Reviewed 09-15-2015) (Booklist, vol 112, number 2, p30)
  • Bestseller Robb’s exciting 41st near-future thriller starring hard-driving Lt. Eve Dallas (after Obsession in Death ) boasts a pair of memorable villains: Ella-Loo Parsens and Darryl Roy James, sadistic lovers who leave an unmarked trail of 29 victims from Arkansas to New York City, where they torture and kill a Metropolitan Opera cellist, Dorian Kuper. Dallas, a Manhattan homicide detective, has very little to go on to solve this crime. Next, the duo kidnap Jayla Campbell, who has the misfortune to encounter them on a deserted Soho street late one night. The twisted “love” of Ella-Loo and Darryl contrasts nicely with the love shared by Dallas and her husband, Roarke. Robb ratchets up the tension as Eve and her team race to save Campbell, as she agonizes while the clock ticks down. Robb delivers a smooth blend of violence and retribution in an entry sure to please her many fans. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed August 3, 2015) (Publishers Weekly, vol 262, issue 31, p)
