By J. D. Robb

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

The new and reissued J. D. Robb classic from the 'In Death' series, in which Eve must face the return of a killer that pushed her to her every limit and has haunted her nightmares ever since . . .

For him, death was a vocation. He was a maestro in the art of death. The keeper of time. The bringer of destiny.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is as tough as New York cops come. But on discovering the tortured body of a young woman, Eve is catapulted back to nine years ago, when a serial killer plagued the city and taunted her mercilessly.

Putting rings on their fingers and carving their bodies, he was named The Groom. And this time he is working up to his greatest challenge yet: abducting a woman who will test him like never before and become his most gratifying victim yet - Eve.

'A witty, dark, page-turning tale' Jonathan Kellerman
