Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plans for spaghetti and meatballs and a quiet evening at home with Roarke, but a flustered Charlotte Mira interrupts with a plea for Eve's help. Dennis, she says, found his cousin, retired senator Edward Mira, injured. But now he's disappeared and Dennis is asking for Eve's help. Thus Eve is thrust into a case that will bring the past roaring back and when the case takes an unexpected turn, Eve, Peabody, and company will find themselves in a race against time . . . and death. This, the forty-second book in the popular In Death series, doesn't disappoint. Populated with the expected characters, the suspenseful, action-packed story offers a hefty dose of intrigue. Though dark, the twisting plot draws the reader in and, as the action ramps up, keeps the pages turning. Fans of the series will find much to enjoy in Eve's latest outing. Highly recommended.

Hi tech resources and tough minded cop, abetted by excellent and interesting supporting characters make this an excellent series. First one, after a long hiatus, and difficult not to finish in a single read. Historic and long standing villains are being hoist on their own petard after it has been suitably heated by female vigilantes.

Dennis Mira has a problem. His cousin, Edward Mira, wants to sell the beautiful old brownstone that the cousins inherited from their grandfather--despite the cousins having promised their grandfather the home would state in the family. Shortly after arriving at the brownstone for a meeting with the realtor Edward engaged without consulting Dennis, he has another problem.He's lying on the floor, bleeding from a blow to the head, and Edward, whom he last saw sitting in a chair with a bruised and bloody face, is missing.Dennis calls his wife, Charlotte; Charlotte calls Dallas, and the hunt is on, for both the missing Edward Mira, and the cause of his kidnapping.What Dallas, Peabody, and their team discover about Edward, a group of his friends going back to their college years, and those who hate them will be shocking and explosive.This latest entry in the series takes a closer look at Dennis and Charlotte Mira, characters normally a little in the background. Dallas also has to confront issues from her own past that have been sleeping for a while. and some of her own lingering insecurities.Over forty books in, Robb still finds ways to make her characters genuinely and plausibly grow, develop, and change. The mystery here is good, too, tackling some emotionally challenging issues.I think there's enough information that new readers can start here and enjoy the story, but as always, this latest "In Death" will be most enjoyable for those who have read at least some of the previous books in the series.Recommended.I bought this book.
