Piatkus, 2019 - Murder - 371 pages
Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads--and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering--whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle's support.

They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they're concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering's murder has run out of chances ...

Read it last week, out of my mind by today. Fast read, always entertaining when Eve Dallas and her mega-zillionaire husband Roarke team up to beat the bad guy. But what the actual plot was, I haven't a clue at this point. If you like Dallas and company, you'll be engaged in the story line. Read full review
