Detective Eve Dallas has to untangle a twisted family past while a hostage’s life hangs in the balance.
A woman’s body has been found on a bench in a playground in New York City. She looked neat, her hair nicely arranged, her makeup well applied. But other things were also very wrong – like the tattoos and piercings, which were obviously new. The clothes, decades old. The fatal wound hidden under a ribbon around her neck And the note: Bad mommy, written in crumpled up paper as if by a child.

Eve Dallas turns to her department’s top forensic psychologist, who confirms what seems apparent to Eve: They‘re dealing with a killer who had some sort of traumatic experience as a child. However, the clues point to a suspect who would be roughly 60 years old and there are no records for old crimes with a similar M.O. What was the trigger for the person who seemingly went over the edge?
“When the past collides with the future, what happens? Abandoned by J.D. Robb brings murder, romance and intrigue to a well-written, futuristic police procedural set mainly within New York City.”
The Book Guide® Editor
When Eve discovers that there are other young women who look like her first victim, she realizes that time is running out. But to solve this puzzle, she’ll need to find her way to a dark room filled with concrete, into the distant future, and into the cold heart of a broken mind.
