  2. This date is approximate and comes from Reunion in Death. Eve makes a statement that Julianna Dunne was one of the cases she had worked right after she'd gotten her "gold shield" (which is most likely her Detectives badge), eight or nine years before the date Reunion takes place which is approximately Summer, 2059. So, we can reasonably assume that Eve must have made Detective in approximately 2050 (9 years prior).

  31. Note (this information is based on a future calendar): We've had a couple of members of the forum work on figuring out the date of Eve and Roarke's wedding, and the most widely accepted theory is this from Arwen: "I read the first chapter of Rapture. In it, Eve looks into the first murder on August 1st. A couple of pages prior to that Roarke says that they have 48 hours until they leave to go back home. Eve also says that they have been on the Honeymoon for "2 1/2 weeks" or almost 3 weeks at different points. Allowing 1 or 2 days for travel back, that would put Eve back in the office on Monday 8/5. (I did check a calendar.) All of this has lead me to decide that they probably got married on 7/13 or 7/14. I checked a calendar and the 13th is a Saturday. I am still trying to determine if they got married on Saturday or Sunday."
