There's more, but this is what fit in the graphic and is the gist of Eve's reasoning to not tell Roarke about why Summerset dealt with Patrick Roarke.
I saw the comments yesterday about the various scenes in the series in which Summerset gained a better understanding and appreciation for Eve. This particular scene is about a secret each kept for 29 books (approximately 2 plus years in In Death time).
While Eve told Roarke (in Secrets in Death) why she understood Summerset's actions in Dublin years before, she's never laid it out fully to Summerset. And he pays her the compliment of saying that there were no cops such as Eve back then.
Of course, Eve brings them back to the present by saying Summerset doesn't get points for making Roarke a better thief. 😎~Laura
“You had no one in authority you could trust to serve and protect, to stand for you when a fucking monster threatened to rape, torture, and kill two children. He’d have followed through on that threat because there was no one to stop him. You did. Roarke’s here because you stopped Patrick Roarke, because you protected the child he was at that time, in that place, in those circumstances. That’s enough for me.”
