I have have read all the books in the In Death series and this installment is just as good as the others. Just when you think you have the killer pegged, the twist in the plot leads you into a whole new train of thought. I know I will be reading this series for as long as Eve Dallas is around.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas walks the thin line between love and hate in this fabulous 40th installment in the series.
Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and gotten a lot of media. She–and her billionaire husband–are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, of gossip, of speculation.
But now Eve has become the object of one person’s obsession. Someone who finds her extraordinary, and thinks about her every hour of every day. Who believes the two of them have a special relationship. Who would kill for her–again and again.
With a murderer reading meanings into her every move, handling this case will be a delicate–and dangerous–psychological dance. And Eve knows that underneath the worship and admiration, a terrible threat lies in wait. Because the beautiful lieutenant is not at all grateful for these bloody offerings from her “true and loyal friend.” And in time, idols always fall.
J.D. Robb once again delivers a great mystery. I was gripped from the moment I started to read this to the very end. I started reading the In Death series last year. There is just enough action and suspense with a dash of romance to keep me interested. It reminds me slightly of the movie Bladerunner. Set in the future but with some things from the present included to keep it from being to imaginary. I have been a fan of Nora Roberts and also J.D. Robb and look forward to reading many more books by her in the future. I am anxiously awaiting the next book of the In Death series coming out this September!
Here’s what the book is about:
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.
A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.
But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . .
