In the new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series, Lt. Eve Dallas is about to walk into the shadows of her husband’s dangerous past…
While Eve examines a fresh body in Washington Square Park, her husband, Roarke, spots a man among the onlookers he’s known since his younger days on the streets of Dublin. A man who claims to be his half brother. A man who kills for a living—and who burns with hatred for him.
Eve is quick to suspect that the victim’s spouse—resentful over his wife’s affair and poised to inherit her fortune—would have happily paid an assassin to do his dirty work. Roarke is just as quick to warn her that if Lorcan Cobbe is the hitman, she needs to be careful. Law enforcement agencies worldwide have pursued this cold-hearted killer for years, to no avail. And his lazy smirk when he looked Roarke’s way indicates that he will target anyone who matters to Roarke…and is confident he’ll get away with it.
Eve is desperate to protect Roarke. Roarke is desperate to protect Eve. And together, they’re determined to find Cobbe before he finds them—even if it takes them across the Atlantic, far outside Eve’s usual jurisdiction…
At the start of bestseller Robb's excellent 51st Eve Dallas novel set in mid-21st-century New York City (after Golden in Death), a call to a murder scene takes Eve, a New York Police and Security Department lieutenant, and her husband, Roarke, to Washington Square Park, where Galla Modesto, an heir to the Modesto Wine and Spirits company, has been stabbed to death. Amid the onlookers, Roarke spies Lorcan Cobbe, an assassin he recognizes from his time growing up in Dublin, and is convinced Cobbe is the killer. Cobbe, who flees the scene, hates Roarke, because Roarke's father refused to acknowledge Cobbe as his son. Roarke acts as a consultant to Eve and her team, who soon determine that Galla's jealous husband may have hired Cobbe to kill Galla because she was having an affair. The NYPSD officers work tirelessly to find Cobbe before he strikes again. The investigation takes a number of twists and turns before it reaches its explosive conclusion. Robb's many fans will be enthralled. 750,000 announced first printing.
It was good, I love the series and the characters and have since the series started. I did expect this story to be better though because the killer was from Roarke’s past - I expected more I guess. I’ll never stop reading the series because I love the characters so much :)
This should have been book 50
Best one yet, these death books just keep getting better and better... don’t stop writing, looking forward to the next one ❤️
Shadows in Death disappoints
Read the whole series love the characters....but in this book they all seemed a bit off....particularly in first half of book..the tone of the dialogue between the characters ...especially Eve and Roark was stilted. It just felt like whoever was writing just didn’t have a feel for the dynamic that’s been developed between these two.
The plot was also a bit choppy in short while always nice to revisit this cast, this did not seem up to the level of others in the series .... Definition my least favourite of all the books.
