The 25th In Death
novel from #1 New York Times
All the elements of a terrific police procedural coupled with gut- searing emotional drama and in-your-face characters that only a writer of Nora Roberts' caliber can deliver.
Whether she writes as J.D. Robb or under her own name, I love Nora Roberts. She is a woman who just doesnt know how to tell a bad story. Creation in Death is an authentic page turner, with Eve Dallastough as nails and still sexy as hellpitted against one of the years creepiest super villains. If you havent read Robb, this is a great place to start.
"Anchored by terrific characters, sudden twists that spin the whole narrative on a dime, and a thrills-to-chills ratio that will raise the neck hairs of even the most jaded reader, the J.D. Robb books are the epitome of great popular fiction."
There's no such thing as too much Nora Roberts. All the books are good, and they keep getting better. Creation in Death, written in her J.D. Robb persona, is a complete pleasure. Wonderful!

Compelling characters, absorbing mysteries and a wonderful sense of both time and place, JD Robb's "In Death" novels are can't-miss pleasures.
Creation in Death is a witty, dark, page-turning tale of futuristic crime fighting. Raymond Chandler meets Blade Runner meets Silence of the Lambs. The techno-toys may change, but evil never does.
J.D. Robb (you-know-who!) has written a taut, nerve-jangling, thriller that draws the reader in from the start and rolls you over the dancing ball bearings of a futuristic police procedural that moves seamlessly and unrelentingly forward. The quality of the prose and the sharpness of the dialogue will delight and even surprise the reader. I know it did me. AS IF she needed it: but now she has yet another loyal fan.

New York City, 2060: Lieutenant Eve Dallas never forgets a corpse. Her new case will resurrect the memories of women she couldn t save and the killer who slipped out of her grasp
When the body of a young brunette is found in East River Park, artfully positioned and marked by signs of prolonged and painful torture, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier. The city was on edge from a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days, courtesy of a man the media tagged The Groom because he put silver rings on the fingers of his victims.
But this time, it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made his attack personal. The young woman was employed by Eve s billionaire husband, Roarke, washed in products from a store Roarke owns, and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. Chances are, The Groom is working up to the biggest challenge of his illustrious career abducting a woman who will test his skills and who promises to give him days and days of pleasure before she dies: Eve."
Lieutenant Eve Dallas never forgets a corpse. Her new case will resurrect memories of the women she couldn't save and the killer who slipped out of her grasp.
