Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, comes a thrilling new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series! Lieutenant Eve Dallas faces a serial killer who offers his victims eternal youth by taking their life...

Portrait in Death

After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn't a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered.

Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who's a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim's every move. And he has a mission: to own every beautiful young woman's innocence, to capture her youth and vitality — in one fateful shot...

Review:

"Though the mystery's denouement doesn't live up to its promise, the book ably delivers on other fronts. Intensely female yet unfeminine in any traditional sense, Dallas has a complex edge that transcends genre stereotypes and gives the book's romantic interludes a real charge. As always in Roberts's work, appealing secondary characters add genuine warmth and humor." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review:

"Portrait in Death will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You will go from wanting to laugh to wanting to reach for the box of tissues." Barb Hicks, ParaNormal Romance Reviews

Review:

"When you want a book that will excite, thrill and transport you, pick up something by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). The futuristic Eve Dallas and Rourke suspense stories are without peer!" Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times

Synopsis:

The New York Times #1 bestselling police thriller series featuring futuristic cop Eve Dallas continues in this brand-new, first-time-in-print novel.
