The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a gripping new thriller that pits homicide detective Eve Dallas against a conspiracy of exploitation and evil…
New York, 2061: The place called the Pleasure Academy is a living nightmare where abducted girls are trapped, trained for a life of abject service while their souls are slowly but surely destroyed. Dorian, a thirteen-year-old runaway who’d been imprisoned there, might never have made it out if not for her fellow inmate Mina, who’d hatched the escape plan. Mina was the more daring of the two—but they’d been equally desperate.
Unfortunately, they didn’t get away fast enough. Now Dorian is injured, terrified, and wandering the streets of New York, and Mina lies dead near the waterfront while Lt. Eve Dallas looks over the scene.
Mina’s expensive, elegant clothes and beauty products convince Dallas that she was being groomed, literally and figuratively, for sex trafficking—and that whoever is investing in this high-overhead operation expects windfall profits. Her billionaire husband, Roarke, may be able to help, considering his ties to the city’s ultra-rich. But Roarke is also worried about the effect this case is having on Dallas, as it brings a rage to the surface she can barely control. No matter what, she must keep her head clear—because above all, she is desperate for justice and to take down those who prey on and torment the innocent.
A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press.

Love how the principal characters of Eve and Roarke continue to evolve and their relationship grow and deepen because they truly understand one another.
Glad to see justice served in the end.

Ok, im rambling..but i cant say enough good about this. My screen and game character name in countless games is Shebody for example 😝😍 And have been for as long as computer games became normal. They are my go-to books to re-read. Read them all many times. My dram is to at some point get them all in English paperback as well as my kindle version.
The story remains interesting, with all the usual suspects, or should that be cast of characters.
Importantly the author did not avoid the grey areas
Which I think were important nor the reality of the outcomes.
Do read this book, JD Robb is an excellent writer, I have all her books. Enjoy.
The continued storylines of the original characters is always great to follow to see how they evolve, along with the introduction of new ones that you can imagine reappearing in future books.
Waiting impatiently for the next instalment of the series......
