The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a gripping new thriller that pits homicide detective Eve Dallas against a conspiracy of exploitation and evil…

New York, 2061: The place called the Pleasure Academy is a living nightmare where abducted girls are trapped, trained for a life of abject service while their souls are slowly but surely destroyed. Dorian, a thirteen-year-old runaway who’d been imprisoned there, might never have made it out if not for her fellow inmate Mina, who’d hatched the escape plan. Mina was the more daring of the two—but they’d been equally desperate.

Unfortunately, they didn’t get away fast enough. Now Dorian is injured, terrified, and wandering the streets of New York, and Mina lies dead near the waterfront while Lt. Eve Dallas looks over the scene.

Mina’s expensive, elegant clothes and beauty products convince Dallas that she was being groomed, literally and figuratively, for sex trafficking—and that whoever is investing in this high-overhead operation expects windfall profits. Her billionaire husband, Roarke, may be able to help, considering his ties to the city’s ultra-rich. But Roarke is also worried about the effect this case is having on Dallas, as it brings a rage to the surface she can barely control. No matter what, she must keep her head clear--because above all, she is desperate for justice and to take down those who prey on and torment the innocent.

She did it again, another master piece. I am concerned however, I really want to see Eve pregnant or at least in the midst of adopting a child. I know this series has somewhat address these facts especially due to the fact that even though it's been years for us, the reader. It had been a few years since they were married. And normally people wait a while.

The book was ok. Lots of extra commentary that wasn’t need. Made it painful to listen to. The narrator didn’t help the book any

Normally I love this series, however occasionally there is a book that doesn't seem to belong like was written by a ghost writer. Makes the main character Eve seem weak and petty, this is one of those, not consistent with the brilliant, resilient main character usually portrayed. Save your money, go the next.

Each Eve Dallas book gets better and better. The pace is quick yet the story line is believable and no loose ends are left at the end.

This is a great series!! Fast pace with great characters. And I love the narrator. The only problem I have with these books is the use of the Lord’s name in vein.
