Promises in Death

Annotation
Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she s been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she s taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn t just one of us. Dallas s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve s husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman s life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts. The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I ll be sending yours to somebody else. But Eve Dallas doesn t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that s a promise."
