Terrific, as usual. I had a bit of a hard time keeping track of all the suspects, however. Wish I'd started a list in the beginning to remind myself who was who. ( )

A good entry in the continuing series. This book was late focused on Roarke and Eve's personal relationship which was good. After a while the personal stuff isn't as fresh anymore. The mystery was interesting and the worldbuilding was excellent. ( )

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.

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. ( )

Formulaic but not stereotypic. The best series and sitcoms need excellent writing to support even excellent characters. N Roberts does such extremely well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399158820, Hardcover)

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. . . .
