Another in the Eve Dallas/Rourke series. Another one I enjoy reading because the characters evolve through their lives through the course of the series. Thats one thing I enjoy about serial books ... its like getting a long, chatty letter from an old friend and you get to catch up on the gossip, with hopefully a good plotline thrown in. ( )

I hope this is just a temporary glitch. I feel like she really phoned this one in. I'm sure it's very hard to maintain a quality level over a series this large but they're becoming very formulaic.

Eve needs to work more with Mira to get past what happened in her childhood. Not forget it, but move past it. ( )

This was a good In Death, not as good as Creation was, but good nonetheless. I didn't think there was enough Peabody/McNabb interactions and I also missed Feeny as well. ( )

Another great addition to the series. I really enjoy getting to know these characters! ( )

Another great addition to this series. I am usually bored to death of a series long by now, but my love for these characters is still going strong and the books are still engaging and solid. ( )

Book description
A Eve Dallas Investigation In Death

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. But as ever, some murders receive more attention than others-especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed-and strangled-with cords of black velvet.

It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders's scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation to the public-and of humiliation to his family. But while people in the city are talking about it, those close to Anders aren't so anxious to do the same. Fortunately, Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Thomas Anders's sporting-goods firm is headquartered, giving her some help with access. Before long, she's knocking on doors--and barging through them--to look for the answers she needs.

But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the apartment indicates that the killer was someone known to the family. And also others things don't add up--and everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the nephew who stood to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion in a kinky game gone wrong-or a meticulously planned execution? It's up to Dallas to solve this sensational case in which those who seem to be intimates sometimes guard secrets from each other--and strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways....

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399154701, Hardcover)

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others - especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed - and strangled - with cords of black velvet. It doesn’t surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders’s scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public - and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders aren’t so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas’s billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders’s sporting-goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access. Before long, she’s knocking on doors - or barging through them - to look for the answers she needs. But the facts don’t add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn’t struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone’s alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion - or a carefully planned execution? It’s up to Dallas to solve a sensational case where all involved guard secrets from one another - and strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways. “Nora Roberts is cool.” - Stephen King
