Lieutenant Eve Dallas rarely frequents places like Du Vin
and she certainly doesn't expect to witness a murder
happen right in front of her. Unfortunately, someone has
planned the death of gossip reporter Larinda Mars almost
perfectly. Larinda knew a lot of secrets about others,
but was it one of those secrets that killed her?
I always squeal just a little bit when a new J.D. Robb
book comes out as I love the characters and the stories.
As odd as it may sound to say, a murder mystery series
has become one of my comfort reads. Eve, Roarke, Peabody,
McNab, Feeney, and all the rest of the reoccurring
characters seem like old friends so each new book is more
like a reunion even though murder is always on the menu.
SECRETS IN DEATH takes us into the underbelly of
entertainment, as we see the darker side of fame. Who
better to take this journey with than trusted friends
like Eve and Roarke?
One of the things I love about the In Death series
are the characters and their dedication and loyalty.
SECRETS IN DEATH showcases this even more so as Larinda
is a nasty piece of work and it's easy to see why she
incited such hatred and anger in others. However, I love
how Eve still stands for Larinda, despite her obvious
flaws. Nadine Furst is a also great contrast to Larinda
as she shows the commitment, honesty, and integrity we
want to see in journalism.
SECRETS IN DEATH is the 45th book in the long-running
In Death series where I've yet to have a book
disappoint me. Each and every book in the series is well-
crafted with likable main characters. In fact, the In
Death series is one of the few series that I stay up-
to-date on no matter what is going on. SECRETS IN DEATH
is yet another spectacular book by J.D. Robb and I can't
wait to see what is next in store for Eve, Roarke,
Peabody, and the rest of the wonderful characters.
A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling
series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality
when a woman who traffics in other people’s secrets is
The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind
of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it’s not
the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But
that’s exactly what happens one cold February evening.
The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described
“social information reporter,” or as most people would call
it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping
the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her
side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich,
prominent marks, she’d find out what they most wanted to
keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone’s done the
same to her, literally—with a knife to the brachial artery.
Eve didn’t like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even
less. To find justice for this victim, she’ll have to plunge
into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars
victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to
some information she really didn’t want to know…
