Secrets in Death: An Eve Dallas Novel
Here’s the blurb about the 45th addition to this series:
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 silenced.
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…
And here’s my Goodreads review:
Another “In Death” winner
Secrets in Death is a great addition to the Eve Dallas story. Eve is in rare form as she meets with a colleague for a drink at a swanky bar. And yes, her hunky husband owns the club! As Eve suffers through her social outing, gossip columnist Larinda Mars drops dead in front of her.
This is a great police procedural story with a little romance thrown in for fun. Eve’s whole gang is around to help her out, thank goodness. Mavis and Somerset have minor roles in this book, but I guess I can deal.
Best of all, JD Robb continues to let Eve grow as a character. Eve is still cranky and full of attitude, and I hope this never changes. The relationship between Eve and Peabody is so much fun!
I loved catching up with my favorite fictional characters. I cannot wait for #46! Dark in Death will be published January 30, 2018. And I have my copy preordered.
