It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving.
Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.
Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things - monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics makes its report, the mass delusions make more sense: it appears the bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive people into temporary insanity - if not kill them outright.
But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror - or why. Eve’s husband, Roarke, happens to own the bar, yet he’s convinced the attack wasn’t directed at him. It’s bigger than that. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne....

I liked it!
I really enjoyed this book, but I enjoy all her books and impatiently wait for each release. Without giving away any of the plot, I'd like to say that I believe the characters were well devoloped. Some of her In Death books are more relationship related and others are more case related. This one was more case related. I must say I enjoyed the plot twist toward the end of the book! I really thought something else was going to happen other than what happened at the end. And to those of you who enjoy her books as much as I do and wait for them as eagerly as I do, may I say SLOOCH!!!
but not as great as the other in the series. Dragged in places.
Not so great
The magic of the characters interacting with each other in past novels is just not here and it hasn't been in the last two or three novels.
