Publisher Comments:

The first #1 New York Times bestseller for J.D. Robb!

The phenomenal series set in a future New York City continues, as Lieutenant Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher — and uncovers some extraordinary surprises.

Review:

"Once again Lt. Eve Dallas shows why she's 'New York City's top murder cop' in Roberts's 24th thriller under her Robb pseudonym set half a century into the future (after 2006's Born in Death). Dallas tries to close a case at the exclusive Sarah Child Academy, where two bright 10-year-old girls discover the body of Craig Foster, a popular history teacher who proves to have been poisoned by ricin-laced cocoa. Dallas wonders if another staff member or a parent might be involved, but after the prime suspect, a promiscuous teacher who's been harassing another employee, turns up dead, the investigation takes a shocking turn. Besides a provocative puzzler, Robb provides an intense relationship update on Dallas and Roarke, her Irish power broker hubby, whose dark past — in the form of a crooked ex-girlfriend — returns to cause trouble. This prolific author, a recent Quills romance winner, is still at the top of her game." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Roarke and Eve remain an appealing pair, and Eve's flashes of vulnerability contrast nicely with her no-nonsense approach to work. Occasionally, though, Robb's New-York-in-2060 gimmick draws undue attention to itself." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Newcomers to the series should begin at the beginning with Naked in Death, as otherwise they may have some difficulty appreciating the depth of the characters' motivations and actions and could get lost in the large cast of fabulous supporting characters." Library Jounral

Review:

"[T]his latest entry in J.D. Robb's 'In Death' series examines the steps some people will take to feed their appetites, safeguard their reputations and maintain their lifestyles — and what others will do to protect the innocent, defend their loved ones and face down their deepest fears."

I always enjoy great escapist reading and Innocent in Death is guaranteed to keep any reader riveted until the very last page. Set in a futuristic New York City and inhabited by engaging characters this book is all things to all readers....romance novel, thriller, gripping mystery and more.

It features a strong, capable (yet vulnerable) female Detective named Eve Dallas, her uber-successful drop dead gorgeous hubby Roarke; Sommerset, their dedicated, faithful and somewhat acerbic major-domo, Roarke's manipulative, sexy and equally gorgeous old flame Magdelana Percell a woman used to getting what she wants....and she wants Roarke; and Eve's partner, the ever observant Peabody.

Added to the romantic triangle aspect of the story is a fascinating mystery concerning the murder of a history teacher at a posh local girl's school. With no obvious motive for the killing, Eve is at a loss in deducing who the culprit could be. The author has provided us with a plethora of possible candidates from rival teachers to spouses to lovers as well as a look at 21st century technology.

Divulging any more details might spoil your enjoyment of this extraordinary tale. So, if your curiosity has been piqued, buy the book and enjoy.

The story is trite as usual - typical Robb. If you must read it because you really like Robb, don't buy the recorded version - the reader is awful ( she screams as a method to communicate a different 'voice').
