Publisher's Summary

A simple sting operation takes a violent and unexpected turn for Detective Eve Ronin in a gripping thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detective Eve Ronin and her soon-to-retire partner, Duncan Pavone, are running a 24-7 sting in a guard-gated enclave of palatial homes in Calabasas. Their luxury McMansion is a honey trap, set to lure in the violent home invaders terrorizing the community. The trap works, leaving three intruders dead, a body count that nearly includes Eve and Duncan. 

Eve’s bosses are eager to declare the case closed, but there are too many unanswered questions for her to let go. Was the trap actually for her, bloody payback for Eve’s very public takedown of a clique of corrupt deputies? Or is there an even deadlier secret lurking behind those opulent gates? Eve’s refusal to back down and her relentless quest for the truth make her both the hunter…and the prey.

Fun Fast and Free with Kindle Unlimited!!!!

I really enjoyed this new Eve Ronin procedural. In this book Eve and her partner are tasked with solving multiple cases. One being that of a dead infant stolen out of it’s mother’s womb. The other is of home invasions being committed by a group of people, in broad daylight in wealthy gated communities. Figuring out how these people are getting in unsuspectedly is a real challenge especially when they are not only under pressure from the community but their police captain as well. He would like nothing more than to get Eve kicked off the force. And to make things real special there’s a TV series being made about Eve based on previous books.
This is book three in the series. Al are standalone and don’t need to be listened to in order. I prefer starting a series with book one but if you’ve never listened to this series it’s fine to pick it up right here. Enough information is given so you won’t feel lost when previous books are referenced.
All in all this is a fast paced fun read.
Nicol Zanzarella does a praiseworthy job narrating.
Best of all, this book is FREE to listen to when you borrow the book on Kindle Unlimited.
This book is VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A wrong turn somewhere

Really liked the first book. But somehow the author has taken the wrong road. All the hollywood stuff in this book and the refusal to really develop the main Character , Eve makes this a flat read. Very disappointing.

No plot or character development

I'm not sure what happened in this book, but the writer seems more concerned about describing food and remodeling tips than creating a story or characters that you were interested in. The plot wanders all over the place while the main character, Eve becomes more and more unlikeable as the story unfolds. Past events from the prior to books are brought up constantly with no development or interesting new details. In the end, this book was a huge disappointment and difficult to get through.

Fun read. Characters and situations are believable. Constant action but not over the top. I enjoyed the read.

Enjoyable escapades of Eve Ronin

In this third installment in the series about rookie homicide detective Eve Ronin she again gets involved in unusual cases with her veteran partner Duncan "Donuts". Two complex cases unfold. A sting operation involving a series of home invasion robberies ends in a shootout, then a call about a stillborn baby turns into a murder investigation. I'm so glad I stumbled onto this entertaining series which was cleverly written, fast paced, and the narration was exceptionally well done.

Can't wait for the next one!

I really enjoyed the series so far. Since this one was just released, I hope it's not too long of a wait.

Perfect once again!

I don’t know how Lee does it, but I get so Enthralled in reading his books. I love these two detectives! Eve and Duncan are perfect together. Duncan balances out Eve’s eagerness and unrelentless drive. I can’t wait to see more of this series!

Couldn't put it down!

I love the Eve Ronin books, and this one is no exception. The writing is fast-paced, the action just keeps on coming, and the characters are believable and imperfect -- although this detective's obsession and unstoppable drive probably aren't typical, it's still nice to hope that such selflessness still exists. America needs more heroes. I hope there are many more books in this series.
