Summary

Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in Leverage in Death , the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from J.D. Robb...

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD's Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter--but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn't going to put the brakes on the merger. All it's accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

Booklist Review

Why on earth would a successful business executive and devoted husband and father blow himself up, along with some of his coworkers? That is the question NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas must unravel when she and her team are called to investigate a bombing at the Wall Street headquarters of Quantum Air. There, Quantum VP of marketing, Paul Rogan, activated the hidden bomb strapped to his chest during a meeting with EconoLift Inc., a company with which Quantum had merger plans. Eve soon discovers why Rogan was compelled to sacrifice himself, but she still needs to know exactly who profits from setting this fiendish plot in motion. With the forty-seventh installment in her always poplar Eve Dallas series, Robb again remixes and remasters all the addictively readable ingredients her readers have come to crave, including a tough-as-nails protagonist who takes guff from no one, a plethora of engaging secondary characters who each play their roles to perfection, a generous dash of hot-as-sin sex, and a fine-tuned, tautly paced plot that relentlessly ticks along to the book's satisfying conclusion. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an initial 750,000 print run and a marketingcampaign on both print and digital outlets, Robb's latest will be a hot ticket.--John Charles Copyright 2018 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Bestseller Robb's gripping 47th thriller set in a near-future New York City (after Dark in Death) opens with a bang. One morning, Paul Rogan arrives at a Downtown Manhattan office building, where he's to participate in a meeting about a merger between his company, Quantum Air, and another company, EconoLife. Shortly after entering the conference room, Rogan detonates the suicide vest he's wearing, killing himself and 10 others. At the scene, Lt. Eve Dallas and her team have to wonder whether the suicide bombing was an act of terrorism or homicide. When they interview Rogan's wife, Cecily, and their eight-year-old daughter, Melody, they learn that two men broke into the Rogans' brownstone earlier and threatened to kill Cecily and Melody, or worse, unless Rogan did their bidding. Robb keeps the action moving as the members of her ensemble cast interview survivors, analyze the bomb used, and gain enough clues to identify the villains. Series fans will be enthralled. 750,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
