In Death 29.5
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
The latest case for New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas is quite a puzzle. A Staten Island Ferry rest room covered in blood, tourist Carolee Grogan missing. But if she’s not on board the ferry and she didn’t jump into the water, then what happened to the woman?

And if it’s not Carolee’s blood splattered in the restroom, then whose is it? And where is the body?

This novella is available in several formats, including the single title and paired with the “Ritual in Death” novella. It is included in the anthology “The Lost.” “Missing in Death” follows “Kindred in Death” and precedes “Fantasy in Death.”

As with the other novellas in the “In Death” canon, there is only one main plot in the telling of this intriguing tale. But the evolving relationships and the camaraderie remain at the heart of the tale. The strong sense of place anchors the narrative and, as with many of the novella tales, the plot could easily become a full-length book. But the action moves swiftly, grabbing readers from the beginning, and the unfolding story offers readers some interesting spy tools, espionage, a Summerset moment, and unexpected surprise or two.

Highly recommended. ( )

Blood is found in a women's bathroom and a mother is missing, bring Eve aboard a ferry to investigate. Leading to murder of an assassin, the murky world of spies and assassins. Rourke helps the investigation which takes a turn that ends up connecting them and causing Eve to make a tough choice. Nice short read in this series.

I don't know how Robb packs so much story into so few pages, but she does. Another very short book but very, very good. ( )
