Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Wilfred B. Icove has been found dead in his office - efficiently murdered by one stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition of the crime scene, Eve Dallas suspects a professional killing. Security discs show a woman calmly entering and leaving the building - the doctor's final appointment.

Known as "Dr Perfect", 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 knows what it is.

With her husband Roarke working behind the scenes, Dallas follows her instincts into the Icoves' pasts. And what she discovers are men driven to create perfection - playing fast and loose with the laws of nature...
