In Death #37: Thankless in Deathby J D Robb
Synopses & Reviews
Eve Dallas deals with a homicide—and the holiday season—in the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.
Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didnt count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women whod been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Zieglers enemies, shes also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husbands upcoming holiday bash.
Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Years 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.
"Apart from references to such things as advanced robots and 'vids' (the new name for theatrical movies), 2060 New York City is indistinguishable from present-day Gotham in bestseller Robb's 38th full-length Eve Dallas thriller (after 2013's Calculated in Death). In addition, nothing in the cookie-cutter plot couldn't have happened in the present or near past. On impulse, 26-year-old Jerald Reinhold, an unemployed loser, stabs his mother, Barbara, to death in his parents' Manhattan apartment, where he waits until his father, Carl, comes home so he can bludgeon Carl with a baseball bat. Lt. Eve Dallas, of the New York Police and Security Department, gets on Reinhold's trail, but the savvy veteran makes a rookie mistake by not warning a clear target of Reinhold's rage that she could be the next victim. Eve also has trouble assessing her quarry. At one point she calls Reinhold 'a fucking moron,' then adds 'he's cannier than I gave him credit for initially.' Readers will have to judge for themselves.

With the money heand#8217;s stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world.
