Born in Death product reviews

Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers‚"both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm‚"are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her buddy Mavis, but that's supposedly what friends are for.

Now Mavis needs another favour. Tandy Willowby, one of the mom's-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family‚"and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis's shower wrapped and ready on the table‚"and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it‚"tingling runs up and down her spine.

Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the job but Eve‚"and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.

When I read this I was pregnant with my second child, and I shouldn't have read it with my hormones crazy and a book revolving around a missing, very pregnant, woman and criminals who were taking babies. So it was a book that had me blubbing, and gave me a bad dream (since the concept was nasty enough).

Mavis, Eve's best friend, is very very pregnant and very close to giving birth, as is a new friend of hers who has disappeared. Even though Eve doesn't do missing persons cases, she does so in this case for Mavis and uncovers something more sinister and a small trail of dead, previously pregnant, bodies.

During the book we have moments where we are with the missing woman and seeing/hearing what she is going through, and as with most mothers, the extent she is willing to go through to keep her child safe. The only problem with this book is that there are a couple of holes in the plot that are just covered over and rushed past.

Still, a good book overall and one that adds to the series quite nicely.
