This is the latest book by J. D. Robb.  Came out last month.

Proof read, spell checked, and headers stripped. 350 pages.


Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her partner Peabody  enter the hallowed hall 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, 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 disks 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. She knows he was hiding
something, and suspects that his son, his successor knows what it is.
Then-like father, like son-the young Dr. Icove is killed... with the same
deadly precision.

But who is the mystery woman, and what was her relationship with the good
doctors? With her husband, Roarke, working behind the scenes, Dallas follows
her darkest instincts into the Icoves' pasts. What she discovers are men
driven to create perfection-playing fast and loose with the laws of nature,
the limits of science, and the morals of humanity.
