I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex. The first 3 stories are my favorites.
This time around, Eve Dallas catches a case that has her professional life merging with her personal one.
When her friend Mavis is accused of murdering the former lover of her boyfriend, Dallas finds it difficult to gain enough facts to exonerate her -- especially since all of the evidence is pointing directly towards Mavis. Leonardo, Mavis' new love, has been hired to create Eve's wedding gown, but things turn ugly when Pandora, a high-class, world-renowned model and his former lover, turns up dead in his studio.
As Eve works to clear Mavis, things get worse when more people associated with Pandora start dying, and at the center is a new drug called Immortality.
This is another winner in the "...IN DEATH" series, and you'll do well to pick up a copy -- and read the series from the beginning!
#3 of the Nora Roberts/JD Robb "In Death" series
The fountain of youth turns deady...top models will stop at nothing to further their careers, and to kill off the competition to get what they want. A good fast read. For an "In Death" novel though, I thought this one was a bit flawed, as from nearly the beginning, its pretty obvious who the major players are and that they're all lying to our heroine to protect their own interests.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think Peabody, Dallas' assistant and eventual partner, makes her first appearance in this book as well.
Lt. Eve Dallas tackles her biggest challenge yet -- proving the innocence of her best friend, the prime suspect in the murder of a famous model. This was so good.
What a great series. Love the characters, even the minor ones.
