Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she’s been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she’s taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn’t just “one of us.” Dallas’s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine’s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve’s husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman’s life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts. The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine’s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: “You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I’ll be sending yours to somebody else.” But Eve Dallas doesn’t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that’s a promise.
Boonsboro, Maryland resident famous author, Nora Roberts has been writing suspense novels very successfully, under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb since 1995. Her first In Death series book was Naked in Death, to which readers were immediately attracted to the main character…Eve Dallas, and her love interest…Roarke.
Since the book in the series in 1999, Loyalty in Death, every Robb novel has been included on the New York Times bestsellers list. Many of Robb's fans were suspicious that Roberts and Robb might be one in the same, and those suspicions were verified by her twelfth book in 2001.
Some of Robb's biggest fans are other famous mystery writers, such as the likes of Stephen King and Jonathan Kellerman......pretty good critics! The In Death series will continue as long as Robb wants to keep writing the novels. She has said that if Eve has a child in a novel, that will be a signal that the series is concluding.
