Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The woman's body was found in the early morning, on a bench in a New York City playground. She was clean, her hair neatly arranged, her makeup carefully applied. But other things were very wrong--like the tattoo and piercings, clearly new. The clothes, decades out of date. The fatal wound hidden beneath a ribbon around her neck. And the note: "Bad Mommy," written in crayon as if by a child. Eve Dallas turns to the department's top profiler, who confirms what seems obvious to Eve: they're dealing with a killer whose childhood involved some sort of trauma--a situation Eve is all too familiar with herself. Yet the clues suggest a perpetrator who'd be roughly sixty years old, and there are no records of old crimes with a similar MO. What was the trigger that apparently reopened such an old wound and sent someone over the edge? When Eve discovers that other young women--who physically resemble the first victim--have vanished, the clock starts ticking louder. But to solve this case she will need to find her way into a hidden place of dim light and concrete, into the distant past, and into the cold depths of a shattered mind." --Dust jacket.

    The note written in crayon is Lieutenant Eve Dallas' first clue that the killer has mother issues. Left by the victim's body, the note consists of just two words, bad mommy. As the NYPD crime unit processes the scene, Eve and her crew shift into investigative mode, and they later discover the victim isn't the first twentysomething woman who has disappeared in the neighborhood. Now it is a race against the clock for Eve to find a twisted murderer before another woman fails to meet the killer's maternal expectations. In the latest chilling and thrilling addition to her best-selling Eve Dallas series, Robb (Forgotten in Death, 2021) is perfectly on-brand with another cleverly constructed story that effectively blends daring suspense and dynamic plotting, all the while keeping the sexy chemistry between Eve and her husband, Roarke, as hot as ever.
