Description

In the new Eve Dallas police thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author J. D. Robb, what looked like a lover’s quarrel turned fatal has larger—and more terrifying—motives behind it…

The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Dallas tracks down the wealthy Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don’t add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, comforted by her handsome fiancé as she sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body—but why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things?

As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find that the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within—and soon they’re getting the FBI involved in a case that involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy.

    I’ve purchased every book in the death series. I worried that this one wouldn’t be as good. It’s SO good! I couldn’t put it down. I hope the next one is this good. Can’t wait!!!

    I wanted a good police read and bought this book. I was highly disappointed and quit after reading about a quarter of the book. First, it is tediously written with more boring detail about irrelevant issues than anyone needs. Second, the author uses an affected writing style that refers to phones as 'links and other euphemisms that aren't even clever. Finally, the book sets up an unrealistic "straw man" organizations to condemn and serve as a vehicle for virtue signaling. Overall, a waste of money.

    J.D. Robb has once again given her readers an in-depth look at the lives of the characters we know so well. Relatable to current events, and a triumph to the good guys. Can’t wait for the next book.

    Another intriguing and fascinating book with LT, her rich husband, and the FBI. The story started with murder and then investigation which is always the best part begins. Can’t wait for her next book. Wish she could write faster. :)

    Good Book, ~ sigh. I really really wish it had been longer. Would have loved more details. Lead up and take down. Much as i love all the In Death books and I’ve read every single one of them, I always long for the next one to have more depth, more characters, just more. I read this one in an afternoon. For the price of Books that’s just not enough.
