Publisher Comments:

The phenomenal series set in a future New York City returns as NYPSD Lt. Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher — and uncovers some extraordinary surprises. Craig Foster's death devastated his young wife, who'd sent him to work that day with a lovingly packed lunch. It shocked his colleagues at the private school, too, and as for the ten-year-old girls who found him in his classroom in a pool of bodily fluids — they may have been traumatized for life. Eve soon determines that Foster's homemade lunch was tainted with deadly ricin, and that Mr. Foster's colleagues have some startling secrets of their own. It's Eve's job to sort it out — and discover why someone would have done this to a man who seemed so inoffensive, so pleasant... so innocent. Now Magdalena Percell... there's someone Eve can picture as a murder victim. Possibly at Eve's own hands. The slinky blonde — an old flame of her billionaire husband, Roarke — has arrived in New York, and she's anything but innocent. Roarke seems blind to Magdalena's manipulation, and he insists that the occasional lunch or business meeting with her is nothing to worry about... and none of Eve's business. Eve's so unnerved by the situation that she finds it hard to focus on her case. Still, she'll have to put aside her feelings, for a while at least — because another man has just turned up dead. Eve knows all too well that innocence can be a facade. Keeping that in mind may help her solve this case at last. But it may also tear apart her marriage.

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:

"[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." Bookreporter.com

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

one of the best books written by nora roberts with extraordinary insight into the feelings and emotions of a married woman even someone as different as eve dallas. this undoubtedly proves that just because someone appears to be as self-sufficient as eve has insecurities that almost all married women face.
