About the Book

Cosmetic surgeon Dr Wilfred B. Icove has been found dead in his office- murdered in a chillingly efficent manner by one swift stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, Eve Dallas suspects a professional killing. Security discs show a stunningly beautiful woman calmly entering and leaving the building- the good doctor’s final appointment.

Known as ‘Dr Perfect’, the saintly Icove devoted his life to his family and his work. His record is clean. Too clean for Dallas. She knows he was hiding something and suspects that his son- and successor- knows that it is.

With her husband Roarke working behind the scenes, Dallas follows her darkest instincts into the Icoves’ pasts. And what she discovers are men driven to create perfection- playing fast and loose with the laws of nature, the limits of science, and the morals of humanity…
