In this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series, Lieutenant Eve Dallas must solve the murder of an actress whose final role was to die for...
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks as though she could be her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building.
Talented but rude and widely disliked, K.T. Harris made an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster to step into the role she was born to play: cop.
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.
Celebrities can Also Kill
First there’s a twist, then there’s more deaths than she first expected, then Dallas has to prove what she already knows. Not always an easy task.
Celebrity in Death
Outstanding plot twists with well supported character development.
Celebrity in Death
As always I enjoyed reading a nag this book by J D Robb. She’s an unbeliever writer when it comes to developing charters, both good, bad or characters to be used developing the plot.
