Concealed in Death (In Death #38) by J.D. Robb

In a decrepit, long-empty New York building, Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s husband begins the demolition process by swinging a sledgehammer into a wall. When the dust clears, there are two skeletons wrapped in plastic behind it. He summons his wife immediately—and by the time she’s done with the crime scene, there are twelve murders to be solved.

The place once housed a makeshift shelter for troubled teenagers, back in the mid-2040s, and Eve tracks down the people who ran it. Between their recollections and the work of the force’s new forensic anthropologist, Eve begins to put names and faces to the remains. They are all young girls. A tattooed tough girl who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Then Eve discovers a connection between the victims and someone she knows. And she grows even more determined to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuary—and the evil concealed in one human heart.

My Review:

I love this series.   It is one of my top auto-buys and 38 books later it is still going strong.  Eve seems to be getting better, more comfortable in her own skin.  A lot of that has to do with her support system and her competence on the job.  Eve will always stand for the dead but when the dead are children it makes it that much tougher.  I devoured this book and await the next action packed entry into this incredible series.
