Book Description

July 5 2004 In Death (Book 14)
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, comes a compelling new novel in the futuristic series…A birthday bash sets the scene for a frightening reunion with a killer from Eve Dallas’s past…

At exactly 7:30 p.m., Walter Pettibone arrived home to over a hundred friends and family shouting, “surprise!” It was his birthday. Although he had known about the planned event for weeks, the real surprise was yet to come. At 8:45 p.m., a woman with emerald eyes and red hair handed him a glass of champagne. One sip of birthday bubbly, and he was dead.

The woman’s name is Julie Dockport. No one at the party knew who she was. But Detective Eve Dallas remembers her all too well. Eve was personally responsible for her incarceration nearly ten years ago. And now, let out on good behavior, she still has nothing but bad intentions. It appears she wants to meet Dallas again—in a reunion neither will forget…

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Seasoned author Nora Roberts, writing as Robb, delivers another exhilarating entry in her popular futuristic cop series featuring Eve Dallas (Seduction in Death, etc.). Dallas, a New York police lieutenant, is a hard-bitten warrior cop who buries the pain and anger of her early childhood by excelling on the job. In her latest adventure, all the usual suspects are back: Eve's charismatic husband, Roarke; her plucky assistant, Peabody; and hipster techno-geek McNab. For this round, their objective is to take down a woman Eve arrested 10 years ago, a poisoner named Julianna Dunne. Julianna's out on parole, and now rich old men are dying sudden deaths. What's more, the ex-con wants to exact a little revenge on her one-time adversary. Eve's search for Dunne takes her all over the country, and eventually to Dallas, Tex., the city that gave her both her name and a legacy of violent nightmares. This is a satisfying, well-paced novel that offers readers a little of everything sex, death, family drama and well-orchestrated chase scenes. Although Robb's plot is tight and suspenseful, the real pleasure here comes from watching Eve struggle to maintain her distance from others, even as she finds herself tied ever more closely to her friends and family by the bonds of love. (Mar. 5)Forecast: It's a given that Roberts's books will grace the bestseller charts, but a stylish cover image depicting a ghostly, Manhattan subway entrance may attract new readers.

From Library Journal

The most recent chapter of Robb's popular series features Lt. Eve Dallas facing a recently released murderer back to get even. Early in her career, Eve testified against Julianna Dunn, and, during her incarceration, Julianna has been planning how to confuse, humiliate, and ultimately destroy her. This violent reunion begins with the poisoning of middle-aged, wealthy men in seemingly innocuous circumstances on Eve's New York City beat and soon looks like it will culminate with the killing of her husband, Roark. Disconcerting houseguests, a tense visit into Eve's childhood in the city of Dallas, and a comic scene searching for clues in the New York underworld add to the plot and give reader Susan Ericksen the opportunity to charm the listener thoroughly. Her reading is full of color: her accent, pitch, and pacing all add to the listening experience and make this one difficult tape to pause. Recommended for popular collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Series That's Getting Better As It Goes Dec 30 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As some may have noticed from my other reviews of this series, I'm not reading them exactly in order. I read 4 from the middle of the series in order, with some skips, then picked up 4 more and put them in chronological order. I read Purity -- then Reunion and Portrait, bracketing Purity.
Hey, folks -- I do seriously recommend nabbing this series as a set and reading them in their proper order. There's a major story-arc involving the two main characters, Lt. Eve Dallas and a financier named Roarke, and piecing their story together is not nearly as enjoyable as reading it straight forward.
However, each book does stand alone as a Police Procedural Mystery. And the Mysteries are solidly plotted and well turned at the end. There's enough background of previous books so you can read out of context without being bewildered.
The third element in these novels that makes them of primary interest to me is that they are set in 2050's and beyond, where Earth has business interests on other planets. I so far have not read a story where Eve goes offplanet with Roarke, but I saw a reference to such a visit.
But I don't have much hope for that novel because of the short-shrift given the third element in this series.
That third element is the weakest part of these novels, and if futurology matters to you, skip this series.
The author has not done the sf novelists' mental work -- extrapolation, or "What if ..." So the series as a whole does not make a solid, well developed argument for future history taking a particular track. The kick an sf reader looks for in a near-future novel just isn't there.
There are bits and pieces of what looks "futuristic" but isn't really.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) is writing this "... In Death" series at the incredible pace of two per year. The debut in 1995 opened us to a new world of NYC homicide crimes set in the year 2058. Various high tech phones, personal air travel vehicles, and human-like "droids" (worker-bees) add an imaginative touch to these police procedurals. In this the 14th of the set, homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas, along with a now familiar cast of regulars, especially her aide Peabody and her zillionaire husband Roarke, is again hard at work trying to run down a killer she sent to jail ten years ago, Julianna Dunne. Out of prison on parole, this time Dunne's hitting random male targets instead of just marrying rich men before she offs them. Eve suspects a personal competition with Dunne, and fears Roarke might be on the hit list with little more than one-upsmanship (with a little revenge thrown in) as a motive. The intensity of the hunt, the interaction of Eve and her cohorts, and the climactic conclusion left us feeling wrung-out from suspense.
While these books take on a predictable form, Robb's plots never fail to please. Moreover, we get to know the lead players better with every book, and take some degree of pleasure in their growth and development. (Peabody solves her first murder in this one, to the delight of all, in a small sub-plot.) The relationship studies between Eve and Roarke pose many questions about the solidarity of marriage and the care and feeding of one's partner; the troubled childhoods of our protagonists only add to the complexity of their pursuit of happiness.
So add it up -- edgy, compelling stories; torrid romance and relationships; futuristic settings; and intense crime fighting: sounds like a great mystery book!

5.0 out of 5 stars She Does It Again!!! June 4 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am truly amazed by Nora Roberts writing. How does she crank out so many books, all with the quality and zest that each and every one seems to have.
This book is the latest in her In Death series written under the name of J.D. Robb.
This time, Eve Dallas faces serial killer Julianna Dunne, whose recent release from prison has not seemed to help. She is out for payback against the one person in the world she respects, Eve. And the payback involves the murderous Julianna playing hardball on Eve's New York City area and she even stalks Roarke.
Eve's vulnerabilities are seem to show, to Roarke and the reader.
Julianna Dunne is a brilliant adversary, and she has done her homework well.
This installment does seem to drag very slow in the beginning but sure picks up pace. All the characters seem to build and I do enjoy that part and getting to know the crew better. This was not the best In Death book but it was sure worth the read. If you enjoy this series then you do not want to miss it. If you are new to the series then start at the very beginning with Naked in Death and you sure will be delighted!

5.0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure May 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Julianne Dunne has been a model inmate for the last ten years. She has kept her nose clean and stayed out of trouble. Once the parole board releases her she returns to do what she does best ´¿ poisoning. Her modus operandi would be to research successful businessmen who were recently widowed or divorced. She would then befriend them, marry them, and then kill them in order to collect their assets. Now that she has been set free she intends to get revenge on the police officer that arrested her ´¿ Lt. Eve Dallas.
Eve has just returned from a three-week vacation. She is now calm, rested, and ready to [fight]. She returns by investigating a series of murders in which rich men are being poisoned and there is no motive that connects them. Once she finds who the culprit is, she is back in business and the manhunt begins. Eve is afraid that the murderer is going to target her husband, Roarke. Dallas is going to have to rely on her own personal strength as well as face her dark past if she wants to defeat this killer. There are times when the plot gets a bit intense but the author knows how to make it fun. You can bet that Eve will find Julianne. You can be sure that there will be a showdown near the end of the book that will have the reader cheering.
J. D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) brings back all her favorite characters and lets them grow a bit more. Eve lets Peabody, her aide, work a cold case; the reader gets to see a personal side of Dr. Mira, the police psychiatrist; and we get to see more of Eve´¿s past as well as her relationship with her Irish soul mate and husband, Roarke. There are times the book gets to be mushy but that is one of the reasons one enjoys Ms. Roberts´¿s sci-fi, romance, police procedural series. The other reason is the humor she puts with Eve´¿s relationships with the supporting characters. It is incredible how this prolific author always keep bringing something new to this series to make the reader want more.
