In this latest Eve Dallas book, there's a serial killer out there who mutilates his victims' eyes after he chokes and rapes them. This case is rough for Dallas, who is reminded of her own rape at the hands of her father when she was a child. When a psychic approaches Dallas and tells her that she has had visions about the murders, Dallas is skeptical but reluctant to turn away the help. Eve Dallas also has to deal with the many friendships she has developed over the course of the series, including a pregnant best friend and a partner (Detective Delia Peabody) who is nervously anticipating moving in with her boyfriend.

In the fall of 2059, Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department and her spouse billionaire mogul Roarke are on their way home from a business party when she receives a notice to report to Central Park's Belvedere Castle. Her partner Detective Peabody is already there when Eve arrives. She tells her it is a nasty crime scene with the victim laid out naked on an outcropping of rocks, badly beaten pre mortem, raped and strangled with a red ribbon, her eyes surgically cut out.

Eve looks at the victim and believes that the killer will strike again; in all probability, the culprit has killed before. Psychic Celina Sanchez, who works the party circuit, tells Eve that she saw the crime being committed in a dream. Her details convince Eve that Celina is genuine. After more women are killed, Eve and Detective Peabody provide a television interview conducted by reporter Nadine Furst. The Lieutenant believes the killer will come after her but she miscalculates and the next victim is Peabody, making this case suddenly very personal to Eve and the entire NYPSD.

There is a lot of action and romantic love scenes between the various couples.
