Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases.

It's October 2060. Eve and Peabody are visiting the set of The Icove Agenda, the film being made from Nadine Furst's book of the same name. It's about Eve's most famous case and she's meeting the actors for the first time. She and Peabody are a little disconcerted at first when they meet their counterparts...they really look remarkably similar! Unfortunately, Peabody's actress, K.T. Harris, is not the most pleasant of individuals so it wasn't the best of experiences. Later that evening, they return to the home of the director for a glitzy evening, along with Roarke and McNab. K.T. was at her worst and created a scene during dinner. She and Eve have words for a moment but then the party moves on. After watching a reel of gaffes from the film production, K.T.'s body is discovered at the bottom of the rooftop lap pool. How ironic that Eve is handed a murder case originating at a party she's attending. Almost everyone, except for Roarke, Peabody, McNab and the director are potential suspects.
Eve and Peabody work the case and soon whittle the suspects down, especially after another murder is committed. Turns out, K.T. had dirt on just about everyone and was resorting to blackmail for many of the attendees. Eve does her normal police procedurals and combined with her natural instincts, hones in on the killer but not after discovering even more surprises about the culprit. The climax of the story occurs in Interview; what better place for Eve Dallas as she returns from her last harrowing case in Dallas.
