Bridgette Casseldhorf is a rookie detective working her first murder case.

Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body—and killed him.
After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team—and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed—it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close—though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman—or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.

Elke Lawrence has never been happier in her job as the head of the Conviction Review Unit. But when her younger brother comes to her in fear for his life because he’s been selling drugs for her locked-up ex-husband, Elke is completely thrown.
She has to save her brother, and she can’t allow him to suffer for her ex-husband’s sins. But she can hardly concentrate at work. The new case she’s picked out, a young man who’s accused of killing his girlfriend, doesn’t seem to want to unravel. Everyone else, including the other members of the CRU, think he’s actually guilty.
Elke won’t give up on the case, though, and she won’t give up on her brother.
Even if her holding on leads to gunshots on a cold winter night and blood in the snow.
