After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey Street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn't a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered.

Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who's a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim's every move. And he has a mission: to own every beautiful young woman's innocence, to capture her youth and vitality - in one fateful shot...

            "Portrait In Death will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You will go from wanting to laugh to wanting to reach for the box of tissues." --Barb Hicks, ParaNormal Romance Reviews "When you want a book that will excite, thrill and transport you, pick up something by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). The futuristic Eve Dallas and Rourke suspense stories are without peer!" --Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times "Purity In Death is a tour-de-force, perfectly displaying Ms. Robb's considerable writing skill, while at the same time illustrating exactly why this series continues to be an auto-buy for her fans... Purity In Death is a winner." --Mellanie Crowther, The Romance Readers Connection "Thank you J.D. for another surprise, more laughs, and another look into the, hopefully, never ending life that Dallas and Roarke." --Michele Patrykus, The Best Reviews

            Nora Roberts

            Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, the youngest of five children. After a school career that included some time in Catholic school and the disciplines of nuns, she married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.

            She worked briefly as a legal secretary. "I could type fast but couldn’t spell, I was the worst legal secretary ever," she says now. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.

            Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn’t reading or making up stories. During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.

            Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they’ve expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.

            Through the years, Nora has always been surrounded by men. Not only was she the youngest in her family, but she was also the only girl. She has raised two sons. Having spent her life surrounded by men, Ms. Roberts has a fairly good view of the workings of the male mind, which is a constant delight to her readers. It was, she’s been quoted as saying, a choice between figuring men out or running away screaming.

            Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. Recently The New Yorker called her "America’s favorite novelist."
