Product Description

From Amazon

In the seventh of J.D. Robb's futuristic romance thrillers, NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the trail of a serial killer terrorizing the city during the holidays. The only link between the victims--all are patrons of an exclusive dating service, Personally Yours. Working with her aide Officer Peabody, Peabody's nemesis Ian McNab, and her own intriguing husband, Roarke, Eve uncovers secrets that link the victims: secrets that involve both the owners and the clients of Personally Yours and which might be worth killing for. Whether she's writing as Nora Roberts or as J.D. Robb, Roberts weaves a taut and powerful story with lush sensuality and masterful characterization. This murder mystery combines elements of romance, science fiction, and police procedural genres in an entertaining mix that will keep readers turning the pages. --Lisa Wanttaja --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

The year is 2058. Guns are banned and medical science has learned how to prolong life to well beyond the century mark. And man has yet to stop killing man. At Cop Central, it's Lieutenant Eve Dallas's job to stand up for the dead. So begins the seventh riveting installment in Robb's (aka Nora Roberts) futuristic romantic suspense series (following Vengeance in Death). With Christmas only weeks away, Eve is stressing out trying to find the right gift for her new husband, Rourke, who "not only had everything, but owned most of the plants and factories that made it." More to her concern is the latest serial killer who is using "The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a theme for his heinous rape and murder spree. The case touches Eve on a personal level, and while flash-backs from her abusive childhood are flinchingly repetitious, it defines Eve's gritty, hard-boiled character and validates her obsessive determination to bring down the killer any way she can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holiday in Death by J. D. Robb Jan. 26 2013
By Linda J. Leclair TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best writers in the world. I have never been disappointed by any of her books as J. D. Robb or Nora Roberts. I have collected all but one in hard cover for my library. My only disappointment is the books don't come out fast enough. I highly recommend this writer to everyone.!!!

Saved this for the Christmas break and was a very appropriate book for that time. However, details of the homicides were a bit disturbing and it took me longer than usual to read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner. March 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The 7th book in Jd Robb's "Death" series is Holiday in Death. Like her previous novels, it focuses on Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke and takes place in the future.
The series is part sci fi, part romantic suspense, part police procedural drama, part murder mystery. Eve is investigating a serial killer who dresses as Santa claus and chooses his victims via a dating service.
The book also re-introduces secondary characters that have appeared in the earlier books- like Eve's partner, Peabody, fellow officers McNab and Feeney, police profiler Mira and reporter Nadine. As each book progresses, we learn more and more about them as well as Eve and Roarke and the world that they inhabit.
Eve and Roarke's relationship continues to evolve and he plays more and more of a role in her cases as the series progresses. Its nice to see their relationship develop, despite Eve's abused past and her job.
The book blends nicely the relationship part of the series and the murder mystery. Its hard to guess who the ultimate killer is, at least until the very ending. Holiday In Death is a great addition to a great series..can't wait to read the next installment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Positively Garbage! Jan. 4 2003
By Thomas
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this one stinks!
It is set in the future: what a great opportunity for adding an interesting element and yet nothing is made of it! The characters are flat: the protagonist is not the least bit likeable. Her husband seems to function merely as her sex toy as their relationship seems to consist of nothing but panting at the sight of him. Otherwise, she is driven, mean, abrasive--not the kind of person you would want to meet.
The mystery itself lacks any kind of suspense and is utterly predictable.
Take it from an avid mystery reader: you'll be hard pressed to find anything more ridiculous, predictable and trashy anywhere. Strictly bottom of the barrel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely NOT perfect ... Jan. 10 2007
By M. B. Alcat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Holiday in Death" is the seventh book in J.D. Robb's "In Death" series, and not one I would recommend for someone who just wants to give the series a try. If that is your case, please make yourself a favour, and read the first book in the series, "Naked in death". That book is excellent, and will give you such a good introduction to the main characters that you will enjoy the rest of the books in the series much more :)

Now, if you are still reading this review I must suppose that you already have read that book, and so you know what the "In death" series is about: a very good cop (Eve), her unlikely husband (Roarke), and the crimes they somehow end up solving together. Of course, by summing up the series in such succinct manner I leave aside a lot of the details that make the series so good but then, if I want to be concise I have to sacrifice something: nothing is perfect :)

"Holiday in death" definitely isn't perfect either. The plot is pretty simple: it is almost Christmas time, and Lieutenant Eve Dallas not only has to buy presents for her loved ones (she hates shopping!!!), but also to deal with a killer who dresses up as Santa Claus, rings the doorbell of his victims and kills them. The only link between the victims is a dating service, and so Eve decides some undercover work is in order to catch the killer, before he continues with his "special" way of celebrating Christmas. Officers Peabody and Mc Nabb will be the undercover agents, and also the protagonists of a secondary storyline that the fans of the series have been waiting for some time :)

I certainly cannot say that this is my favourite book in the series. Despite that, and strangely enough, I DO RECOMMEND IT. Why?.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa's packing.... Aug. 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was very well written and kept me on the tip of my toes from beginning to end. It was the first of the series I read and it left me craving for more. Most of the time when I read a book that has a murder mystery plot I figure it out long before the detectives, but it kept me guessing right up until the end. I LOVED IT and you will too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ho Ho Ho! May 10 2003
By JBogue
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is Christmas in Manhattan, and someone is celebrating the season by killing. The only link between the victims, is a dating service named Personally Yours. To help solve the murders, Eve puts Peabody and her arch nemisis, McNab undercover as clients of the exclusive dating service. As Eve uncovers secrets about the clients and owners of Personally Yours - secrets that might be worth killing over - she struggles with her past and the the cruel rape-murders. When the attacker goes after one of her own, Eve must fight the darkness with in her and obey her training as a law officer.
HOLIDAY IN DEATH is a great addition to the "IN DEATH" series. This is Eve's first Christmas where she actually has a family and is surrounded by people she cares about. It is very touching and amusing to watch her struggle with buying gifts and Roarke's tree trimming. In contrast to this beautiful season for Eve, is the cruel reality of her past. Eve and Roarke struggle to find the balance between past and present, so that they can go on with there future, and start new traditions together.

Specializing in paranormal romance and fiction.
