He looked at his hands, covered with her blood, at the wild spatters of it on the walls.

Review by JohnFair
It may be Thanksgiving week in New York, but Eve and her homicide squad find themselves involved in one of their most intensed cases ever as they try and track down Jerry Reinhold wanted for the murder of his parents and ex. No mystery as to who did the murders even if some of his friends find it difficult to believe good old Jerry could ever do anything like that. But Eve and the team are in no doubt.This is basically a Columbo episode on speed - we know who did it and we're reasonably certain why he did it but there is a reasonable degree of tension as we hope Eve and Roarke are able to find the killer before he works his way down his sh*t list. At firs, things look like they're going the way of the killer but gradually the odds change as Roark and EDD uncover the last testament of one of Reinhold's victims.As we've come to expect from JD Robb after all this time, weget a fast actioned tale with some emotional moments and if there are less twists and turns this time out the tension is still high to lead to a satisfying finale
