Lt. Eve Dallas is a cop who stands for the dead. It doesn't matter who died, she'll do her best to see that justice is served and the murderer is caught, tried, and hopefully punished. When she's called in to head up the investigation of the murder of Deena MacMasters, daughter of Capt. Jonah MacMasters, the case becomes personal. While Eve didn't know sixteen-year-old Deena, Peabody did. Deena was a cop's daughter and, from the looks of the violence of her murder, she was killed to make a statement -- to get even with her father? Her mother? The department in general? Eve doesn't know, but she intends to find out who and why.

From official release/information:

Product Description: When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind.

Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaited them instead. Brutally murdered in her bedroom, Deena's body showed signs of trauma that horrified even the toughest of cops; including our own Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who was specifically requested by the captain to investigate.

When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do they know yet that someone has gone to great lengths to tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities. Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to bring justice.
