Publisher Description

A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people’s secrets is silenced.

The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it’s not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that’s exactly what happens one cold February evening.

The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described “social information reporter,” or as most people would call it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich, prominent marks, she’d find out what they most wanted to keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone’s done the same to her, literally—with a knife to the brachial artery.

Eve didn’t like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even less. To find justice for this victim, she’ll have to plunge into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to some information she really didn’t want to know…

Another winner with great use of the theme of protection

Another great entry in this fantastic series. This book is one of the cerebral/reflective additions to the series as opposed to the suspense/action/danger versions. I find I really enjoy these books more as there is more character development and insight and there seems to be more emphasis on the,e and connections. Plus, it get's a little ridiculous having Eve, Rourke or one of her team nearly die every month!! I mean seriously, this is book 45 and it's only been three one comes that close to meeting their maker that many times in such a short time period!!

The theme/connections here are all about protection, family and what we do for those we love. Aside from the victims of the blackmailer demonstrating these qualities we see it between Peabody and McNabb, Eve and Peabody, Eve and Rourke, Trina and Mavis, Eve and Mavis, Summerset and Rourke, Madine and Eve, Nadine and Mavis, Mira and Eve etc. There are great emotional and enlightening conversations between many of these characters that gives the reader more depth of understanding of their relationships.

The investigation and watching Eve's wheels turn as she gathers information and excludes people from the suspect list is just fun to read for any mystery's like vintage Agatha Christie!

My only disappointment is I don't think there was a mention of the grey button which normally shows up in every book. Though perhaps there was and I either didn't register it or am attributing it to one of the five In Death books I read this weekend in the lead up to this book's release! Guess I'll find out for sure in the soon to come re-read!!

I love the series.

Good book. I jumped out of order coming back to the series but I’ll be continuing from where I left off last time.

Secrets in Death

As usual the awesome duo Dallas and Roarke team up on the bad guy! I had someone else pegged but Dallas works her way through it with pizazz. Always keeps me entertained from beginning to end and I can’t put it down! Love love love it and JD/Nora!!
