This often heart-breaking story is told from Ruth’s point of view as she attempts to make sense of the world around her, and find her place in it. How she eventually comes to terms with her unhappy childhood and finds a new destiny away from everything she has previously known is a story of triumph, and sorrow, hope and inevitability. Ruth comes to acknowledge the cycle of life and death, as illustrated by the ever-present lake surrounding her home, and emerges from the tragedy as a new person, replete in knowledge, and ready to begin a new life.

I found myself drawn into the story quickly as this young woman, overcomes one obstacle after another in her quest for revenge, success, and love. I would recommend this book, and this series, to anyone who enjoys reading of strong heroines and intrigue.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the trail of an escaped serial killer with whom she has a history. She follows him from New York city to Dallas, Texas, her husband Roarke at her side. Not only does she confront the murderer, but also his mentor, her own long-lost mother. In my opinion this is one of the best books of the “In Death” series by Nora Roberts under the pen name J.D. Robb. Roberts fills in the blanks about Eve’s angst-filled backstory, while at the same time delivering a wonderful tale of triumph over adversity with plenty of action and a juicy mystery. What could be better!
