J. D. Robb is the pseudonym for a #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels, including the bestselling In Death series. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.
Murder, sex, and blackmail all figure in bestseller Robb's smart, well-crafted 35th Eve Dallas novel set in mid-21st-century New York City (after 2011's Dallas to New York). Lt. Eve Dallas feels a little uneasy attending a party at Hollywood mogul Mason Roundtree's Park Avenue townhouse to celebrate The Icove Agenda, the movie adaptation of a high-profile murder case solved by Eve and her police cohorts. Eve has even more cause for concern after 28-year-old actress K.T. Harris, who makes a drunken scene at dinner, later turns up dead in the lap pool on the townhouse roof. Could K.T. have fallen into the pool by accident? Or was it foul play? K.T. had plenty of enemies, including Marlo Durn, who plays Eve in the film and could pass for Eve's sister: "I hated her. She was a sick, bitter bully." Eve's wealthy and charming husband, Rourke, lends support while Eve and Detective Peabody pursue yet another gripping case. Agent: Amy Berkower. (Feb.)

"Superstar Robb takes Eve and co. on a through-the-looking-glass
ride as they meet their actor counterparts in the movie based on
one of Eve's most famous cases. The juxtaposition is amusing and
deadly, as murder strikes at a swanky party. One of this series'
best elements is the gradual development of characters punctuated
with unexpected payoffs. Great good fun as always!."-RT Book
