A #1 New York Times Bestselling AuthorShe calls herself Lady Justice, and she makes herself as alluring and seductive as possible to her male targets. The first victim of her brutal retribution is wealthy businessman Nigel McEnroy, whose crimes go far beyond workplace harassment. Now Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are investigating McEnroy's secret life and misdeeds. There is a wide range of suspects, but the true identity of Lady Justice remains elusive. It's a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy's combative widow. Meanwhile, Lady Justice's criminal crusade is escalating rapidly, and if Eve can't stop this vigilante, there's no telling how much blood may be spilled.
"Killing someone no matter how much he might deserve it isn't justice; it's revenge. At least this is NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas' take on the situation when Nigel B. McEnroy's badly bruised, battered, and castrated body is found outside his New York City apartment building. A poem written by the avenger, who calls herself Lady Justice, and left beside the body enumerates all of McEnroy's crimes against women, but that doesn't matter one bit to Eve, because as far as she is concerned, murder is murder. As more victims of Lady Justice's brand of revenge begin turning up, Eve finds herself marshaling all her resources, inside the department as well as outside, to put a stop to someone who has appointed herself judge, jury, and executioner. With the forty-ninth tautly constructed, fast-paced entry in Robb's long-running In Death series, the author (aka Nora Roberts) continues to find new and innovative ways of keeping readers glued to the edges of their seats.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: All the major publicity bells and whistles including a national one-day laydown of 750,000 copies will ensure that fans know Eve is back with a new case.--John Charles Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review:
"A scorned woman calling herself Lady Justice goes on a killing spree in bestseller Robb's fast-paced 49th thriller featuring Lt. Eve Dallas (after Connections in Death). On Manhattan's Upper West Side, the mutilated body of a man is found outside his apartment building. Tacked to his corpse is a cryptic poem signed Lady Justice. Eve's instincts tell her this isn't an isolated incident, and when the body of another mutilated man is discovered the next day with a similar poem attached, she realizes time is critical. The day after that, Lady Justice claims a third victim. Eve searches for a link among the murdered men, assisted by her police partner Det. Delia Peabody, and her husband, Roarke, a brilliant tech-savvy entrepreneur. When Eve discovers the common link is a women's support group, she must set a careful trap for this cunning, methodical vigilante before the woman can murder a fourth man. The romantic banter between Eve and Roarke adds some welcome relief from the grim crimes. Robb enthusiasts will be well satisfied. 750,000 announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.)"
