"futuristic police procedural"
In the year 2059, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called to
the scene of a particularly brutal homicide in which the
dead woman was bound, tortured and killed. The victim,
Natalie Copperfield, worked as an accountant at the firm of
Sloan, Myers and Kraus as does her fiancée Byson. When Eve
goes to his abode to question him she finds him murdered in
an almost an identical manner to that of Natalie.
Eve believes the same person killed bottle of them and when
she listens to recordings on their links she learns that
Natalie and Byson discovered something irregular at their
firm and were investigating it. As Eve investigates the
accounting firm; her best friend Mavis, who is about to
give birth, wants her to find her friend Tandy who is also
about to go into labor. With the help of her sexy husband
Roarke, a billionaire many times over, Eve finds the two
cases are linked; if she finds the missing woman, she will
also find the killer.
J.D. Robb is a fantastic writer of futuristic police
procedurals. Her characters have changed and grown over the
course of this series and in this latest installment, Eve
and Roarke have to overcome their own fears to help a good
friend. The mystery is so well crafted that readers will
not know who the killer is until the extraordinary climax
occurs. BORN IN DEATH is filled with loads of action and an
insightful glimpse of the protagonists' private lives. Ms.
Robb has written another bestseller.
