Glory in Death / J. D. Robb / 313 pages / Oct.-Nov. Challenge Scary
The year is 2058. Certain aspects of life have changed. Technology has made rapid advances. A gun ban has been instituted, and genetic testing has attempted to render the population healthier. Unfortunately, murder has not been eliminated. A prominent prosecuting attorney is found in a questionable neighborhood dressed to the nines with her throat slashed. Eve Dallas is on the case, which is only the first in a series of slashings. Is Roark involved? His name keeps coming up in the investigation. Roark wants to marry Eve which scares her right out of the relationship. This well-potted mystery was a tad too predictable. I had the killer ID'ed from the beginning.
