|Plot Summary of Conspiracy in Death|
|"Eve Dallas is a homicide detective in the year 2059. Her latest case involves the multiple murders of sidewalk sleepers. In each case perfect laser incesions were made into the victims, and an organ was removed from the scene. The precision of the surgeries leads Eve to believe that her perp is a top-notch surgeon. All of her suspects are very powerful members of society, and none of them are very happy with where Eve's investigation is leading. The lead criminal does his best to keep Eve off the case, first by threatening her, and then by causing job complications for her.
Officer Bowers is a troublemaker in the police department, and when she is on a crime scene with Eve, she immediately dislikes her. She files numerous reports about Eve's conduct, and even goes so far as to publicly slander her. When Bowers is suspiciously murdered, Eve is the department's only suspect. She is suspended from her job.
She is very determined, and still continues her investigation into the murders, illegally. Her quest takes her to painful places from her past, but nothing will stop her from finding justice for the murdered victims. But when she finally figures out who the murderers are, things become more complicated. How can she take down a large group of powerful people with a sociopathic leader? "
