She calls herself Lady Justice. And once she has chosen a man as her target, she turns herself into a tall blonde or a curvaceous redhead, makes herself as alluring and seductive as possible to them. Once they are in her grasp, they are powerless. The first victim is wealthy businessman Nigel McEnroy. His company's human resources department has already paid out settlements to a couple of his young victims-but they don't know that his crimes go far beyond workplace harassment. Lady Justice knows. And in one shocking night of brutality, she makes him pay a much steeper price. Now Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are combing through the evidence of McEnroy's secret life. His compulsive need to record his misdeeds provides them with a wide range of suspects, but the true identity of Lady Justice remains elusive. It's a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy's widow, who reacts to the investigation with fury, denial, and threats. Meanwhile, Lady Justice's criminal crusade is escalating rapidly, and if Eve can't stop this vigilante, there's no telling how much blood may be spilled.

This is a poor attempt at bringing #metoo to this series. I keep hoping that this series would go back to its former quality but alas. So predictable and boring.
It is an absolute formula now. No mystery at all. No tension. 2 dimensional characters. Regurgitated story lines about Eve’s trauma. Nauseating mushy lines between Roarke and Eve in a world where more than half of marriages breakup, how does this honeymoon continue?
No real exploration of a world 40 years from now, where is the sci-fi? just calling things by new names isn’t real sci-fi.
Unrealistic police procedures and no murder mystery.
This series is flatlining.

OK confession time. I have read all the Eve Dallas "in Death" books. Love the books but I really do not like Lt. Eve Dallas. She is an arrogant, "I'm always right you are pretty much always wrong" type of person. She doesn't like vegetables so she just can't understand why anyone would or could like vegetables etc. Women who dress up and paint their nails and wear some make up, well they are just frou-frou idiots! That said, I love the "in Death" books and this one was one of the best! Warning, you will pretty much know who the killer is fairly early in the book (this is a deliberate reveal by the author), but that does not in any way take away from the excitement of going along with Dallas and Peabody tracking the killer down.

More depth than a few of the previous books, great detail and a better portrayal of the main characters.

Much better than the last three "In Death" books, whick were awful. I believe that Roberts wrote this herself , and not ghost writers. Its a better calibre of written English, back to what it was before. Dallas is more like herself, with much less gratutious profanity. The same for Peabody. We are all glad of that. Robb/Roberts must have read all the bad reviews she was getting. Also there was a style distinct style change in this one, in that the culprit was revealed long before the ending, and not right at the end as in most previous books in the series.

i have loved this series from the start. however, something was just missing in this one. it was well, flat. not sayiing it is a bad book, just if you are expecting a riveting story like usual, you will probably be somewhat disappointed.
