|Plot Summary of Indulgence In Death|
|"Eve and Roarke are back home from a much-needed vacation, which included a trip to Ireland, to visit his mother's relatives.
On her return, Eve and Peabody find themselves dealing with seemingly random murders with unusual weapons - the driver of a luxury cab service is killed with an antique crossbow, a licensed companion catering to the upper class is murdered with a bayonet and an exclusive French chef is pinned to a tree with a harpoon.
As the investigation progresses, Eve realizes that they may be searching for two dangerous killers who have turned death into their own private game.
The killers' taste for indulgence and their decision to choose only the best in each profession for their victims may lead them to select her, New York's finest cop, for the final round, top criminal profiler Mira warns her. Eve wants them to come after her, if only to stop another unnecessary death.
