Detective Delia Peabody: She started out as Eve’s temporary personal aide and was promoted to Detective and Eve’s partner. Peabody is Eve’s opposite; she’s feminine, knows how to play well with others, and can usually lighten Eve’s mood with her lively sense of humor.
Summerset: Summerset is Roarke’s live-in butler. As a young boy, Roarke met Summerset and his daughter when they ran some cons together in Dublin. He also saved Roarke’s life after a severe beating and took him in shortly after Roarke’s father was killed. Summerset and Eve don’t quite see eye-to-eye, and trade verbal barbs, but he has come to accept that she loves Roarke wholeheartedly and is an emotional rock for him.
Mavis Freestone: Mavis is a trendy, petite ball of energy, always changing her hair color and style. She wears flashy clothes and has a heart of gold. Originally, Eve arrested Mavis as a con artist but eventually the two became close and Mavis is Eve’s best (and only) friend. Mavis became a talented and popular recording star thanks to Roarke, who sent her demo tape to one of his recording companies.
Detective Ian McNabb: McNabb has long blond hair, and is a flashy, colorful dresser. He works in the EDD (Electronics Detection Division) of the NYPSD.
Captain Ryan Feeney: Feeney is currently Head of the EDD (Electronics Detection Division) but was Eve’s former partner and the man who trained her to be a cop. He is like a father to Eve, although they had a difference of opinion in one particular case that strained their relationship for a time. Eve owes much of her persona as a cop to Feeney.
Dr. Charlotte Mira: Mira is the top criminal profiler in the force and resident therapist. She has helped Eve open up about her past. Eve hasn’t admitted that she thinks of her as a mother figure, but Mira knows anyway and thinks of Eve as a daughter—even though she has her own family with grown children and grandchildren.
Galahad: He is the well-fed adopted cat that lives with Eve and Roarke, her “knight in shining armor” who was named after he distracted a killer. He has dual-colored eyes and comforts Eve when she needs it most, but can’t admit it.
Candy Thief: The Thief is a member of the NYPSD and constantly finds and steals Eve’s well-hidden chocolate. Suspects abound, but no ID.

On Manhattan's Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.
