Very good entry in the Eve Dallas series. This is more of a procedural than a whodunit. The whodunit is never disguised once Eve follows the clues but the why and how are more important. Also, it's nice that it isn't Eve or a member of her team or Roake's that is endangered. This is more pure mystery. ( )

A good man walks into a meeting discussing a merger between two airlines and detonates the explosives in a vest on his body. Eve catches the case and quickly learns that Paul Rogan was coerced by men holding his family hostage. But what did the two men want? What good would killing a dozen people and delaying a merger do?

Luckily, Eve has on tap a financial consultant - her husband Roarke - who can help her figure out what some possible motives might be. It seems that the most likely motive is to make money when the threat of terrorism causes panic on Wall Street and the stocks lose value only to rebound when the news that the merger will go through after all.

Knowing the motive doesn't initially help Eve find out who planned this brutal scheme. Interviewing survivors and running down suspects to try to find leads is the reality of this investigation. Then, when a person of interest is found dead with a broken neck and dumped in s reservoir in Central Park, Eve knows that she's getting closer. Then a second incident happens. This time a rising artist is killed in the gallery setting up his first show, his loft is broken into, and his art is either stolen or destroyed.

Eve needs to find this pair of killers before they can strike again -- as Eve is sure they will.

Wrapping around this main plot is the build up to the Academy Awards. Nadine Furst is up for an Oscar for adapting her book The Icove Agenda for the screen. The film is also up for Best Picture. Mavis is up for an Oscar for the Best Song. Eve absolutely does not want to attend the Oscar festivities but Nadine has invited Peabody and McNab. Attending the Oscars has been a life-long dream of Peabody's but find these killers might make it impossible for her to get away. Eve knows what it means to her partner and so recruits Roarke to fill in for Peabody while she's gone.

This was another great episode in a long-running series. Fans won't want to miss it. ( )

Lacks a little from the other In Death books but very readable anyway. ( )

When devoted, loving husband and father Paul Rogan walks into Quantum Air's NY HQ the morning of a major merger and sets off a suicide vest, all hell breaks loose for Lt. Eve Dallas and her team. Why did this wonderful man kill himself and 11 others? Dallas realizes that this is very much a game to two people who think kidnapping and terrorizing a wife and her child, forcing the man to kill himself and others is a great form of entertainment. Dallas needs to identify and stop them before they strike again. ( )

It all begins with a murder...don't they all? But it's a king-sized, over the top murder. A mild mannered account manager...loyal employee and loving family man walks into a merger meeting and blows himself and 12 other people up. Now Detective Eve Dallas thinks it's all about the money. It's not only about money... but as the title says...it's about Leverage. What's not to love about this series and these wonderful, sometimes funny characters. "Leverage in Death" can take it's place with the other 46 equally entertaining additions to this series. Can't wait till February to meet Eve's crew again. ( )
