I’m happy to read this book, because it made an honest attempt to break free from the rut that this series has been in for the past few books. Yes, Roarke is once again the target of a bad guy (or, rather, girl), but the rest of the story definitely has its own feel to it. And especially towards the end, it got pretty exciting.

I really liked the addition of Peabody’s parents in this book, as well. It adds more to Peabody as a character, and I found them likable as their own entities. I do wish they had played somewhat bigger roles, though, so that we could have gotten to know them a bit better, and found out even more about Peabody’s history. But this book also really rounded out Peabody’s character more in other ways as well, and she came a long way.

Eve deals with a lot in this book as well. And it’s a very rough ride. A VERY rough ride. I was ready to put the book down for good at one point, because it was getting so intense. This book deals HEAVILY with Eve’s past, so if these things are going to be at all triggering, it may be best to skip this book, or at least read with caution.

All in all, I really enjoyed this book, though. Perhaps not the strongest book in the series thus far, but certainly, compared to several of the books before it, a stronger addition to the series. ( )

At exactly 7:30pm, Walter Pettibone arrived home for his surprise birthday party. The biggest surprise of the night was yet to come. Walter and the men that followed him were just a stepping stone for who the killer really wanted - Eve Dallas. ( )

I love Eve and Roarke. This time an ex-con is after Eve because Eve disrespected her. I like knowing who the villain is and watching Eve try to pre-guess her moves so Eve can arrest her before another murder happens. Good story. ( )

After a holiday, Eve is horrified to find that New York hasn't thrown up a murder to get her teeth into but the peace is rudely shattered as a successful business man is killed by cyanide in his birthday champagne and Peabody's parents make a visit to their daughter. As the case unfolds, Eve realies she's met the killer once before and hoped she'd been put away for good but it becomes personal when Eve realsies that the killer's next victim will be Roarke, Eve's multi-billionaire husband and old ghosts from her past are raised...

Book description
16# Eve Dallas Investigation In Death

'Murder was work. Death was a serious chore for the killer, the victim, for the survivors. And for some murder was a labour of love...'

At exactly 7:30 pm, Walter Pettibone arrives home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, "surprise!". It's his birthday. Although he has known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise is yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair hands him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he is dead.

The woman's name is Julie Dockport. No one at the party knows who she is. But Detective Eve Dallas remembers her all too well. Eve was personally responsible for her incarceration nearly ten years ago. And now, let out on good behavior, she still has nothing but bad intentions. It appears she wants to meet Dallas again - in a reunion neither will forget....

A birthday bash sets the scene for a frightening reunion with a killer from Eve Dallas's past.
