Number Twelve is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted... and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number Twelve a cultural icon. Several bullets from a banned gun end his dream of returning the building to its former glory. With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won't let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.… (more)

Eve's murder is related to a murder 100 years previous. Is it a ghostly murder or is the murderer just that clever. I'm with Eve, not believing, was an okay read for me. ( )

Haunted in Death
4 Stars

A quick and entertaining novella.

While the paranormal elements in this installment are somewhat incongruent with the established futuristic world building in the series, they are interwoven well within the storyline. It is fun seeing Eve reconcile her analytical thought processes with the existence of ghosts, especially considering the openness of the people around her, mainly Peabody and Roarke, to the idea.

The murder investigation is fairly straightforward with a couple of solid twists and the confrontation at the end is exciting.

All in all, a well-written and cohesive story that covers all the basis in relatively few pages. ( )

The plot is relatively simple. A murder is discovered in a building that is assumed to be haunted and/or cursed and Eve needs to figure out what happened. The victim is the grandson of the former owner of the building which was a swinging club in the 1960s. The owner of the club had a girlfriend who disappeared and attained legendary status. She was a 24-year-old rock star. Then the owner locked himself into the luxury apartment above the club until he died. Since then the building has gone through lots of owners who all seemed to have bad luck there. It is a very different JD Robb. Terrific story and fascinating characters. Eve experiences a world she never believed existed. Lots of fun. ( )

It's a nice quick read, but I wouldn't call it exciting. I also don't like how Peabody doesn't get much spotlight anymore apart from some silly banter. Bring back Peabody! ( )

A fun short story for the Halloween season featuring a haunted house and celebrity intrigue. I just love this series on audio! ( )
