One in a series but good as a stand alone we have our female Chief Detective facing as usual the barrage of
bad feeling from her colleagues with just a few supporting her work. Her success is the cause for the antagonism,
never mind that she almost died in the case and the fact that the last case is going to be cast into a TV
series has not won her any followers amongst her fellow workers.
When a series of robberies takes place in gated communities with so called security guards and plenty of
preventive measures in place Eve follows up on the latest robbery. A trail which leaves the three robbers dead
all not caused by her own hand, anyway gets her the notoriety she hates and which her boss is going to use to his
best advantage for the advancement of his own political career. Uncovering a racket which seems to go beyond just
three youngsters on a stealing spree, a murder of a woman and a baby is uncovered which adds to the complications
in the story.
The story is fast paced, and an eye opener on how easy it is to get into even a gated community when the community
itself becomes lax on security and warnings. Everyone gets very settled into an easy pace and then the trouble begins.
