It was a stab in the dark. During a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan's neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds in Times Square. To Chanel's best friend, who'd just slipped out for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel's blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

As Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime-from the pages of her own book. A recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. This killer may be finding inspiration in someone else's imagination, and Chanel's murder may be only the second of a long-running series. The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a criminal's deranged private drama-and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.
From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest in the edgy, phenomenally popular series of police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls "inventive, entertaining, and clever."
