New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her partner Peabody enter the hallowed halls of the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery on a case. A hugely popular vid star has been beaten to a bloody pulp and has killed her attacker in the process. After a post-op interview, Dallas and Peabody confirm for themselves that it's a clear-cut case of self-defense, but before they can leave the building, another case falls into their hands. Dr. Wilfred B. Icove himself has been found dead in his office, murdered in a chillingly efficient manner: one swift stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, 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.

Much, much better than the average read in this series. The 'gang' is all here and all help to unravel the plot but it is fascinating and unexpected. You will read this for the mystery as well as the rapport and repartee between the characters.
