Summary

Summary

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death , by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan's neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel's best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel's blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime--from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn't think it's coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else's imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer's deranged private drama--and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death , this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls "inventive, entertaining, and clever."

Booklist Review

As far as NYPD lieutenant Eve Dallas is concerned, imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery, especially when it comes to murder. So when Eve learns that the killer responsible for stabbing Chanel Rylan in a dark movie theater may have borrowed the idea from one of popular thriller-writer Blaine DeLano's novels, Eve begins to wonder which of DeLano's books the murderer will turn to next for inspiration. The creative well never seems to run dry for best-selling Robb (aka Nora Roberts) as the forty-sixth installment in her ever-compelling Eve Dallas series proves with its fast-paced plot, engaging cast of characters, and writing seasoned with just the right dash of sharp humor. Eve Dallas fans will especially appreciate Robb's musings about the appeal of crime fiction and the insights into the writing process that she so deftly inserts into the story. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With a one-day laydown of 750,000 copies as well as the usual print and digital marketing campaigns, Robb's latest is destined to become another most-wanted best-seller.--Charles, John Copyright 2017 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

At the start of bestseller Robb's enjoyable 46th novel set in a near-future New York City (after 2016's Secrets in Death), someone plunges an ice pick into the neck of Chanel Rylan while the 32-year-old aspiring Broadway actress is watching the shower scene in Hitchcock's Psycho in a Times Square movie theater. Lt. Eve Dallas arrives at the scene to find that no one witnessed the fatal stabbing. Later, novelist Blaine DeLano shows up at the police station where Eve and her team are gathered to report that Chanel's death is the second that appears to copy a murder from one of her bestselling books. Following meager forensic clues, Eve tries to identify and warn potential new victims and stop the killer. Robb expertly ratchets up the suspense as the endgame approaches in this deadly chess match between Eve and her cunning opponent. 750,000-copy announced first printing.
