The new novel featuring homicide detective Eve Dallas from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Devoted in Death.

Sometimes brotherhood can be another word for conspiracy. . . .

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze. 

As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.

    If you already like this futuristic bent on murder cops then you will certainly like this one. The overall situation is pretty sick and you learn even more about the main character. Resolution is excellently done.

    Keeps you interested, a little drawn out.

    Another excellent book. Not always easy to read but a great story with thoughts of it happening in real life with lives ruined. Onto the next novel with Eve and Rourke.

    First book I've read by Nora Roberts that was too long and boring. It dragged on through too many pages.
  • One of the best "In Death" books

    By RC1836
    J.D. Robb never disappoints. I love how Eve's relationships with the secondary characters have evolved. I found her interaction with "Mr Mira" especially poignant. Definately a book I will reread.
  • One of the best

    The book was another outstanding book in this series. An outstanding example of when law and emotions of the past come together in regard to a group of characters.
  • Excellant Read

    Better than all the rest. Nora's latest is perfection as usual. More than finely drawn characters and a robust plot, any book in the In Death series is a reunion with friends -- you read slowly, reluctant for the finish. Seems like forever until the next is published. And so you read again the previously published, and count the days. To experience the series fully, do start from the beginning.
