A gripping new instalment in JD Robb's IN DEATH series that pits Lieutenant Eve Dallas against a brutal killer striking deep within her own ranks
J.D. Robb is a pseudonym for Nora Roberts, the number one New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred novels. There are more than 300 million copies of her books in print, and she has had 150 New York Times bestsellers to date. Nora Roberts is married with two sons.
At the start of bestseller Robb's megablast 28th novel to feature Lt. Eve Dallas (after Salvation in Death), Eve is dismayed to discover at a Manhattan crime scene that the victim is a friend, Det. Amaryllis Coltraine, who's been fatally zapped by her own stun gun. Dallas uncovers a connection to Coltraine's ex-boyfriend, Alex Ricker, whose father, a notorious criminal serving a life sentence at the Omega Penal Colony, blames Dallas and her husband, Roarke, for his imprisonment. Humorous touches, like the wild poolside wedding shower Dallas must abruptly leave after receiving word of a prime suspect found shot to death, provide relief from the intensity of the murder investigation. In a nice paranormal twist, Dallas uses dream visits with Coltraine to help expose a devious killer whose identity is a stunner. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) has a real gift for keeping this long-running thriller series fresh. (Feb.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
