Another good Eve Dallas story, this one focusing mostly on immediate events, rather than flashbacks and histories and peripheral characters. Each approach has its merits, but the direct murder mystery one works best here. There's enough clues that a person can spot the actual killer before the end, but they're not obvious and annoying like in Ceremony in Death. The interpersonal relationship issues came from inside the investigation this time, instead of being an offshoot or slightly connected. It made a richer mix.
