Publisher Description

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art…

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”

Good read!

This was another good story by JD Robb. This book focused a little more than usual on the amazing loving relationship between Eve and Roarke. Very nice to read. In many of the IN DEATH books, the story focuses mostly on the case. Readers received both this time. Always enjoy these books. If you are new to JD Robb, start with Book One. The development of the characters and their relationships with one another adds another great dimension to her books. Enjoy!

A subtle notation

Love the underlying themes and messages written in this book along with a simplistic plot...interesting twists. Love the continued development of the depth of character also. An author who writes death..

Dark in Death

I love all of the “in death” series. I loved that the plot revolves around a plot of a book and involved a female killer. However, In comparison to the other books in the series, I feel the ending left me wanting more interaction between Eve and her husband beyond the solving of the case & the apprehension of killer.
