NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas must discover who’s preying on those who cater to the rich and famous in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.
When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe—not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York...
A limo driver is shot through the neck with a crossbow. Then a high-priced escort is found stabbed through the heart with a bayonet. Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminal, a thrill-killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life—and death.
As time runs out on another innocent victim’s life, Eve’s investigation will take her into the rarified circle that her husband Roarke travels in—and into the perverted heart of madness...
Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department returns home from a long overdue Irish vacation to a string of bizarre murders in Robb's thrilling 32nd future cop novel (after Fantasy in Death). The crossbow killing of chauffeur Jamal Houston in his limo in a La Guardia parking lot is followed by the death of high-rent prostitute Ava Crampton, found at Coney Island's House of Horrors stabbed with a bayonet. Other victims include Luc Delaflote, a celebrity chef who's harpooned, and Adrianne Jonas, "a facilitator for the rich" strangled with a handmade bullwhip. Eve, assisted by her trustworthy sidekicks, Det. Delia Peabody and husband Roarke, uncovers a wicked game that grows increasingly macabre. Robb (the pseudonym of Nora Roberts) keeps the reader squirming as Eve and company try to avoid dying in weird ways themselves.

I am never disappointed in the “in death” series. J. D. Robb keeps my attention with the story lines.
Her best yet!
Admittedly, I'm a fan, so hardly impartial, but in my opinion this is The best of the Dallas/in death series so far. I loved everything about it.
Captivating and entertaining. Well written and ver clever.
