Promises in Death is the 28th novel in the Eve Dallas mystery series. This time the murder lands a little too close to home for Detective Dallas. The victim is a cop, and not just any cop, but the girlfriend of Dallas' friend, Chief Medical Examiner, Li Morris. But to make matters worse, this wasn't a simple case of dying in the line of duty. The victim left her apartment of her own free will and apparently met someone she knew. Friend, snitch, fellow cop … whoever it was that murdered a young cop with her own weapon, this one is going to open a lot of old wounds. From official release/information:
Product Description: Amarylis 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."
