When Eve Dallas is called into a murder scene, she is surprised to learn that her best friend, Mavis, is a suspect in the crime. When Eve has to arrest Mavis for the murder, she vows to save her friend and find the killer no matter what. But it's not so easy for Eve to concentrate on the case when she has to plan her own wedding, tend to her best friend, and deal with the sudden memories of her buried past. Eve is determined to find the true killer and prove Mavis' innocence, and so she goes into overdrive doing just that. Eve turns up a connection to a new illegal drug, which benefits the user with restored youthfulness, but is also highly addictive and fatal.

This is the third book of the long running series and I’ve really enjoyed them all. It’s interesting to see how the author envisions future New York and I love the mix of mystery and low level science fiction. I definitely plan to continue the series and hope to read at least a few more this year.

Immortal in Death J D Robb

The third book in the Eve Dallas series, this book sees Eve investigating the death of a supermodel who has been violently beaten to death, the problem? Eves best friend Mavis is the prime suspect.

There is also an investigation into a new type of illegal drug one that promises its users youth and strength but which is actually deadly.

Amongst all this havoc Eve is slowly recovering her childhood memories and experimenting with proper beauty care and designer clothing.

I enjoyed this book more for the developement of characters and relationships than the actual crime investigation, I really like Officer Peabody and think she is a good foil for Dallas.

Eve Dallas is busy planning her wedding to Roarke. Then her best friend Mavis is accused of murdering the famous model Pandora. Eve is also busy investigating the death of one of her informants Boomer who has a stash of a unknown drug. Officer Peabody and Captain Feeney help in the investigation. A good mystery and I enjoy the inventiveness of the future setting. ( )

Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb
#3 "In Death" series

At the end of the last book, Eve accepted Roarke's marriage proposal. Now they are in the midst of wedding plans, fittings, etc. Of course, Eve is gritting her teeth over all the attention placed upon her. Her best friend, Mavis, however, is beside herself and is all over planning the wedding. Her newest love interest is an up-and-coming fashion designer and is in the process of designing Eve's wedding dress and trousseau when he and Mavis are implicated in a murder which occurred at his home.

Eve knows Mavis is innocent, but because of their close relationship--Eve loves Mavis like a sister--Eve is a bit distracted and misses some clues which could have led her to the culprit(s) faster. Then additional murders happen which are obviously connected to the first, causing even more stress and urgency to find the real killer(s).

In this installment we see more of Delia Peabody, whom Eve has taken on as an aide in order to help boost her career in homicide. Eve still has Feeney as her go-to guy for anything security or computer related. We are also introduced to another cop within the department, Jake T. Casto, a handsome and charming cowboy-type who has a thing for the unavailable Eve, but ends up starting a relationship with Delia (DeeDee). Casto comes from the department called "Illegals" (Narcotics) and works in tandem with Eve regarding the homicides as they are connected with a new and illegal drug called "Immortality" which works like the fountain of youth but is deadly if taken long term.

This is another enjoyable installment in the series. We learn more about Eve's past, as well as (Roarke's grumpy butler) Summerset's history and why he and Roarke are so loyal to each other. Roarke continues to prove himself the ultimate in catches; Eve worries me a bit with her hesitancy and snappishness with Roarke. I worry she's going to wear on his last nerve which could cause some problems in their future relationship. ( )

Book description
A top model is dead--and the suspect is none other than Eve Dallas's best friend.

'She'd come to New York to be a cop, because she believed in order. Needed it to survive. She had taken control, had made herself into the person some anonymous social worker had named Eve Dallas'. But in a few weeks she won't just be Eve Dallas, lieutenant, homicide. She'll be Roarke's wife. But Eve's wedding plans may have to be put on hold as her private and professional lives collide... The victim in her latest murder investigation is one of the most sought-after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted - even another woman's man. And Eve's chief suspect is the other woman in this fatal love triangle - her best friend Mavis. Putting her job on the line to head the investigation, Eve discovers that the world of high fashion thrives on an all-consuming passion for youth and fame. One that leads from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs can fulfil any desire - for a price...
