Book 21 in the In Death series, published January 2004.
Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and then a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises – until she was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned artist Blair Bissel, and her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killings than jealous rage – all of Bissel’s computer files were deliberately corrupted. To Roarke, it’s the computer attack that poses the real threat. He and Reva have been under a Code Red government contract to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists. But this deadly new breed of hackers isn’t afraid to kill to protect their secret – and it’s up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole country.
This story totally rocked! It has a lot of action, and even more emotion. Especially between Eve and Roarke. But I am not going to spoil this story if you haven’t read it yet. Suffice to say, it has spies and conspiracies and corruption. A secret government agency trying to sweep Eve and her investigation beneath the table. Of course they do not succeed in that.
With the help of her faithful team, and Roarke and his unregistered, Eve gets to the bottom of it al, and even to her own personal history.
