Naked in Death - Death Series 1 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Naked in Death - Death Series 1

Eve Dallas was a New York police lieutenant who was very good at her job - sometimes too good. She never told anyone how she had nightmares about all of the victims that she was too late to save and she refused to open up to the psychiatrists at the office. Her last case, where a father hacked up his young daughter into little pieces, continued to haunt her, but, before she had a chance to go in for testing, she was called to work on a priority case with political ramifications. Turns out an expensive, high-class prostitute was murdered, shot three times with an old gun. The catch was that the prostitute was the granddaughter of a US senator who wanted the killer caught and the case filed away so that he could concentrate on his political agenda. Lucky for the victim, Eve doesn't give into political pressure...

Eve starts will the prostitute's clients, of which there are many, and find herself questioning Roarke, a mysterious Irish billionaire who had dinner with the victim the night before she died. Its true that Eve feels an instant physical attraction to Roarke, but she refuses to act on it - she is a professional and she doesn't get involved with suspects. Pushing her gut instincts about Roarke aside, Eve tries to be objective in her investigation, but the evidence keeps piling up against Roarke. When two more prostitutes are killed in rapid succession, Eve is under pressure to bring the killer in. With her career on the line, political pressure from the senator and her superiors, Eve cannot afford to get involved with someone like Roarke. But how can she ignore the man who makes her feel for the first time in years...?
