This was highly focused on the case, and far less on Eve & Roarke's relationship. However, when the book focuses on the cases, it allows us to see Eve's growth in her professional interactions - both with her colleagues and with victims.
My one qualm is that I would have liked to have seen Mira call Eve on the carpet for her attitudes rather than have it be a provate discussion with Roarke later on. I think that would have allowed Eve to grow more in her personal developmetn, and made things uncomfortable for her. But that didn't happen.
Anyway, I liked this installment very much.
