Introducing Eve Dallas

Found at eight years old in an alley in Dallas, Texas, Eve has no memory of her life until that moment, other than of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her criminal father, until she killed him in self-defence. After making it out of the foster care system at eighteen, she moves to New York determined to make a new life for herself.

Now a homicide Lieutenant for the NYPSD (New York Police and Security Department), Eve is tough-as-nails, brusque, aggressive and efficient. Dedicated to finding justice, she barely functions until the case is solved, surviving on cup after cup of strong black coffee.

Although still haunted by the nightmares of her childhood, Eve is generous, caring, passionate and protective. Tall and slim with whiskey-coloured eyes and short choppy brown hair, her softer side is increasingly on display, but only to those very close to her. Being a cop is everything to Eve.

Introducing Roarke

Irish-born Roarke is the epitome of tall, dark, and handsome. Introduced as a murder suspect in Naked in Death, the first In Death book, Roarke is a former thief and rogue from the slums of Dublin, unloved and abused by his parents; a tumultuous childhood which led him to a less than honest means of making money.

But Roarke has left his shady past behind him in order to become a legitimate businessman: he owns a high-tech security firm and dabbles in just about everything else, making him one of the richest men in the world. His dazzling blue eyes, wicked humour and smooth elegance assist him in both business and pleasure.

Despite having a penchant for the finer things in life, Roarke believes in justice just as strongly as Eve, and regularly lends his considerable skills and resources to her investigations.
