Lt. Eve Dallas and Detective Peabody ably assisted by Roarke and McNab are out to catch a killer. Not a professional killer, but one that is rapidly evolving to a serial killer as he finds out how much he likes to kill with each victim. Three are dead, will Dallas and Peabody be able to stop him from killing more I can truly say she never disappoints. The characters are real people to me and their interaction with one another is like the interaction you have within your own family. There is more than one story going on here; besides trying to locate the killer, Eve is finding the WHY of the deaths, all while planning to attend the premier of a vid (movie) based on one of her previous cases. The action is ever suspenseful and never expected. This is the 45th book by JD Robb that I have read and I recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, suspense and romance.

When Marta Dickenson, a well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, is murdered, Lieutenant Eve Dallas immerses herself in her billionaire husband Roarke's world of big business to discover who arranged a hit on an innocent woman. Lieutenant Eve Dallas must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to uncover the identity of a hit man in this thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.

On Manhattan’s East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office and the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait…

The last 10% of the book had the qualities I've seen in this series, otherwise the book was a disappointment. The sharp repartee usually seen between Eve and her husband, and Eve and Peabody was mostly missing, and the plot seemed muddled with too many "suspects", which was a stretch.I've loved this series in the past and will give it at least one more try, and I can only hope the next one will restore the excellence this series had in the past. I struggled several times to stick with this book to the end.

By all outward appeara...

By all outward appearances, the death of Marta Dickenson seems to be the result of a mugging gone wrong. But to NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas, things just don't add up. The evidence Eve and her partner find lead them to believe that the accountant was murdered. After someone steals files from Marta's office, it becomes clear that Eve will have to dig into the world of big business in order to find the killer. With the help of her husband, Roarke, Eve will delve into the world of finance to find someone calculating enough to order the death of an innocent woman. And Eve better hurry, because Marta's death will only be the first of many, if the killer has his way. This book was not a clear cut as all the others. There was a lot of "muddle" before the story really took off, but it was still a fantastic "In Death" book.

#36. This is the first...

#36. This is the first in the series that I read--or listened to, as the case may be--and I read the first two in the series [print] before finishing. I found it interesting that nearly all the characters on hand in this book were introduced in books 1 and 2. Nearly. I am puzzled by the continued antagonism between Sommerset and Dallas. I am waiting to learn the back-story of the relationship between Sommerset and Roarke. Surely it isn't just basic jealousy? Ah well, back to #3....

Maybe it was just the ...

Maybe it was just the amount of space devoted to financial discussions in this particular In Death book, but I found the story a little uneventful and long. Nothing much seemed to happen until the very end of the story, which, while I won't describe it in detail, seemed pretty anticlimactic and was nothing new for this series. That said, the familiar main characters were just as entertaining as always, so, if you already love Eve, Roarke, Peabody, and the rest of the gang, it's still worth reading.

From the book description;"On Manhattan's Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn't seem the type to be on anyone's hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta's murder was the work of a killer who's trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.But when someone steals the files out of Marta's office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke's world of big business to figure out who's cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer's violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . ."Another foray into the world of Dallas and Rourke. I've read a few of the reviews of this book and it seems like fans did not enjoy this book as much as some of the others. Several commented that it was a "set up" book for the next in the series. Personally, I enjoyed this book because it explored a little bit more of some of the peripheral characters that the last few books have not mentioned as much. When I get invested in a series (and I have been reading this one since book one), every once in a while I expect an entry that is a little more low key because it allows the reader (and, no doubt, the author) to catch up a little bit.
