But if she didn't jump, and she's not on board, where is she?
Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her team know that all the answers lie in just what she was seen on that ferry ...Set between Kindred in Death and Fantasy in Death.

Review by wyvernfriend
I had read Ritual in Death before in Suite 606 but it was worth the re-read. Interesting story with some supernatural overtones, though the murder is solved by solid police work on the part of Dallas et al. Dallas is at an event dressed up to the nines and bitter about the shoes when a naked man stumbles in covered in blood. Satanic Rituals and cultish behaviour feature.Missing in Death features the Staten Island Ferry, blood in a toilet and a missing mother, when the mother turns up again she's missing a chunk of memory, however the blood suggests a body, and that's missing too, when Dallas starts digging she finds that the blood is from a nasty assassin and the investigation takes a few twists.Both are good introductions to the series and the characters but as part of the series they are good reads, little snippets of interaction between characters I have come to know and love and enjoy visiting with occasionally.
