There is nothing unusual about billionaire Roarke supervising work on his new property - but when he takes a ceremonial swing at the first wall to be knocked down, he uncovers the body of a girl. And then another - in fact, twelve dead girls concealed behind a false wall. Luckily for Roarke, he is married to the best police lieutenant in town. Eve Dallas is determined to find the killer - especially when she discovers that the building used to be a sanctuary for deliquent teenagers and the parallel with her past as a young runaway hits hard. As the girls' identities are slowly unravelled by the department's crack forensic team, Eve and her staunch sidekick Peabody get closer to the shocking truth...

A good read, as usual. Middle of the rank from the In Death series, another normal crime solving day for Lt. Dallas and company.

This of of the better J.D. Robb books I have read. Lieutenant Eve Dallas's husband is set to demolish a building but on striking the first blow he finds two skeletons. He summons his wife and they end up finding 12 bodies! The search for the murderer starts and in a gripping tale we hear of all the possible suspects and the eventual solving of the crime; but not before Dallas herself struggles with her past. Little Quila one of the residents of the home is just incredibly precocious and a delight to read about.

A good read overall, however I felt as tho the author got a little tired towards the end and just wanted to finish the book. The book reminds me of John Steinbecks, 'Of Mice and Men' a bit.

********SPOILER ALERT********** Monty=Lenny, Nashville=George, and Shelby is somewhat congruent to Curly's wife.

I'm left wondering how was Monty able to do everything he did and get away with it for so long given his mental capacity. Was it all a show? Big brother had to have known a lot more than he admitted to in the end.

It was a good read. Plot was okay.
But I find that the feel of the series has shifted a bit recently. I just flip the page on sex scenes. Hopefully the next book has more of the other characters in it. Love how Eve feels about Mr. Mira!

Very bittersweet tone to this entry, especially the epilogue. I must admit though, I’m beginning to tire of the sex scenes and the near constant reminders of Dallas’ traumatic upbringing. Having said that, I still have a lot of affection for this series. I automatically put the new titles on my “must read” list, even if the main mystery doesn’t appeal to me (a very rare occurrence) there’s bound to be something that I’ll like about it.
