For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter―but what was the motive of the masked men?
Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

A short review to update challenges
I love the In Death series. The characters have become beloved to me, and their circle of friends with comfortable connections. The police procedural and mystery aspect is always interesting for me. In addition to mystery, there is the personal growth. Their quirky styles and humor make me so happy. There’s nothing realistic about the stories but the characters’ emotions.
The plot was rather suspenseful since the potential for deaths was so high and for so many innocents. Eve and Roarke got a handle on the psychology of it very quickly. They narrowed down the list with factors they identified successfully, especially with another murder adding evidence.
Leverage In Death is number 47 so you have plenty to read and binge. They never disappoint. I am always thrilled to settle down with the next book. While the books are not short, they are quick to read because they are so pleasurable. Highly recommended.
Eve looked down at the finger painting. A castle-house, Roarke, a fat cat, and, okay, Somshit.
