Innocent in Death (In Death)by J. D. Robb
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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.)
"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
"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
