A serial killer returns to complete his perverted quest for the perfect partner in death.
Eve Dallas has been a cop for 12 years. She graduated first in her class from the police academy. She earned her detective shield in record time. Then, a sergeant with a talent for electronics took her under his wing and the NYPSD was never the same. The first case they worked as partners involved a serial killer the media called The Groom. He left his victims - tortured and then washed clean - naked except for a wedding band and posed on a white sheet. For 15 weeks, he stalked the city preying on pretty young brunettes - then he just stopped. A few years later, he began again - different city, but still pretty young brunettes. Over the last nine years, he's killed 25 women in half a dozen countries. Now he's back in New York. But a few things have changed since the last time he played with a partner in the Big Apple. Eve isn't a rookie detective anymore. Now she's got friends in places high and low. She rubs elbows with rock stars and fashion designers, beat cops and barely legal club owners, ace reporters and licensed companions, clinic doctors and criminal profilers. Her old partner is the head of the high tech crimes division. But the biggest change is that now she's married and her hubby doesn't like to share (especially not with a psycho who wants to see Eve posed on a white sheet).
In a city that never sleeps, neither does a killer looking for love - nor a cop crusading for justice.
