For Lieutenant Eve Dallas, the protagonist in this mid-21st century police procedural, attack is the behavior of choice. Susan Ericksen adroitly portrays this emotionally complex detective with staccato bursts of anger, as well as with soft musings during times of tenderness. The result is a character strong enough to confront a serial killer, soft enough to find murder repellent, and well-developed enough to walk off the written page. While the supporting characters are stereotypical, Erickson presents the crusty commander, the shattered daughter of one of the victims, the ambitious yet totally unprincipled journalist, the cagey Irish lover, and the futuristic android servant with the individuality one would expect from a multicast production, not a single narrator.
