LIEUTENANT EVE DALLAS EXPLORES THE HIDDEN CONNECTIONS AMONG RIENDS AND LOVERS, ENEMIES AND STRANGERS

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and giant divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others, especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed and strangled with cords of black velvet.

It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders's scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders arem't so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas's billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders's sporting-goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access.

But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion or a carefully planned execution?

"Robb's strong, hard-nosed heroine once again generates the kind of heat that keeps fans turning the pages."--Publishers Weekly "Settle back for another eminently entertaining chapter in this first-rate and long-running detective series. Early on strong-willed Lt. Eve Dallas pegs her suspect, but what follows is a thriller that also becomes a personal battle of wills. Robb has created a cunning killer who uses money and a sympathetic facade to divert suspicion. But, as many a killer can attest, never bet against Eve Dallas!"--RT Book Reviews More Praise for the In Death series "Robb is a virtuoso."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer "It's Law & Order: SVU--in the future."--Entertainment Weekly "J. D. Robb's In Death novels are can't-miss pleasures."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Harlan Coben "Anchored by terrific characters, sudden twists that spin the whole narrative on a dime, and a thrills-to-chills ration that will raise the neck hairs of even the most jaded reader, the J. D. Robb books are the epitome of great popular fiction."--New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane Robb s strong, hard-nosed heroine once again generates the kind of heat that keeps fans turning the pages.

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."
