Delusion in Death
'What would cause someone to want so many people, surely many of them strangers, to slaughter each other?'
The scene that greets Lieutenant Eve Dallas one terrible evening in New York is more shocking than she has ever witnessed. The downtown bar is strewn with bodies - office workers who have been sliced, bludgeoned or hacked to death with the nearest weapon available, turning on each other in a desperate blinding rage.
As Eve and her husband Roarke - who owns the bar among his many properties - investigate the city, they link the attacks back to the Urban Wars and the chemical warfare used all those years ago. With another slaughter imminent, Eve must turn to unexpected sources to stop a killer pursuing revenge by creating mass carnage . . .
Set in 2060, the gripping 36th Eve Dallas novel (after Celebrity in Death) from bestseller Robb (the pseudonym of Nora Roberts) opens at On the Rocks, a bar on Manhattan's Lower West Side, where the patrons, mostly "white-collared working stiffs," are enjoying happy hour. Suddenly, everyone in the bar inexplicably turns on each other, and a bloodbath ensues. Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department investigates, even though her husband, Roarke, is the owner of On the Rocks. Eve discovers a possible link to the apocalyptic Red Horse cult, which orchestrated attacks with airborne hallucinogens during the Urban Wars of the early 21st century. While Robb serves up twists and turns in ample portions, the main attraction is still the character of Eve, who will win over readers with her ability to persevere in seeking a killer while coping with her personal demons.
Excellent story I throughly enjoyed reading it.J.D.ROBB never fails to write a great story
Another great read
I read one of JD Robb's In Death series every holidays and I just love the relationship I have formed with Dallas, Rourke and Peabody! This was another great read. I am always disappointed when the final page comes and then keen to know when the next book will be available.
Delusion in death
It was hard to put this down.. It kept me guessing and had twists through out the story. My heart was racing while I read this book all the way to the end. The author has a way of bringing out your imagination.. I almost thought I was in the story. Absolutely brilliant .
