Payback in death / J.D. Robb.
Just because you're on vacation, doesn't mean the murder stops. After a trip to sunny Greece and a visit to Roarke's Irish relatives, homicide detective Eve Dallas is back in her element in gritty, crowded New York City. And she's barely put her suitcase down before she's called to investigate a dead body--which turns out to belong to Martin Greenleaf, a retired Internal Affairs Bureau captain. Greenleaf's protege in the department insists Greenleaf wouldn't have put that stunner set on high to his own head, and that the note on the computer screen--a vague expression of guilt that seems to admit to incompetence or corruption--is bogus. Greenleaf's widow is confident of that, too. The more Dallas ponders the evidence, the more she starts to agree with them. After all, IAB members aren't popular among dirty cops. But after the victim's long career on the force--tripping up bribe takers, rule breakers, and worse--was there one disgraced officer out there bitter enough to plan an elaborate and deadly revenge? Dallas is as tough as anyone in law enforcement, but she's also by the book--and as long as she's on the job, anyone who kills an honorable cop needs to watch their back. -- Provided by publisher.
