Summary

Summary

The incomparable J. D. Robb presents the latest moving and suspenseful novel in the #1 New York Times --bestselling Eve Dallas series.
 
In a decrepit, long-empty New York building, Lieutenant Eve Dallas's husband begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, there are two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. He summons his wife immediately--and by the time she's done with the crime scene, there are twelve murders to be solved.

The place once housed a makeshift shelter for troubled teenagers, back in the mid-2040s, and Eve tracks down the people who ran it. Between their recollections and the work of the force's new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the remains. They are all young girls. A tattooed tough girl who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Then Eve discovers a connection between the victims and someone she knows. And she grows even more determined to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary--and the evil concealed in one human heart.

Booklist Review

The rundown building has good bones. That is exactly why Roarke bought it. The problem is the building has some real bones in it as well. While breaking through an interior wall to kick off the renovation, Roarke discovers bones wrapped in plastic. A quick call to his wife, Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department, brings Eve and her team to the site. Eventually, 12 bodies are found in the building. With the help of the department's new forensic anthropologist, Eve is able to pinpoint the time of the murders to 15 years earlier when the building served as the Sanctuary, a shelter for troubled and/or homeless teens. When Eve begins tracing the lives of each of the young girls who died there, she not only finds herself tracking a killer, but she also discovers a startling connection between the crimes and someone in her own life. The latest nail-biting installment in Robb's long-running Eve Dallas series features the same skillfully drawn ­characters and masterful way with suspense that have ensnared readers since Naked in Death (1995).--Charles, John Copyright 2014 Booklist


Library Journal Review

Urban renewal usually brings new life to old buildings, but in this case the demolition uncovers the skeletons of 12 young girls. As each body is dated and identified, Lt. Eve Dallas puts together a picture of the girls' movements. Slowly she establishes the girls' characters and relationships within the groups while investigating the Jones siblings, who once ran a safe house for homeless children in the now-derelict building. Susan Ericksen reads the latest Eve Dallas mystery with her usual verve. From the crisp pace of Dallas on the job to the warm Irish lilt of Dallas's husband, Roark, Ericksen's reading is full of color and style. Her voices of suspects, witnesses, and victims are individual; her pacing is appropriate to the plot. Verdict Recommended for all mystery collections.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, Colonial Williamsburg Fdn. Lib., VA (c) Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
