This of of the better J.D. Robb books I have read. Lieutenant Eve Dallas's husband is set to demolish a building but on striking the first blow he finds two skeletons. He summons his wife and they end up finding 12 bodies! The search for the murderer starts and in a gripping tale we hear of all the possible suspects and the eventual solving of the crime; but not before Dallas herself struggles with her past. Little Quila one of the residents of the home is just incredibly precocious and a delight to read about.
