Description

Echoes in Death, the chilling new suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb is the perfect entry point into the compelling In Death police procedural series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”...

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

    Trite and poorly written, read like a sample of fiction from a high school class.
  • Echoes is great

    Received my book on release date and decided to save it for recovery from surgery at end of February. It was hard to wait. Well short story long - surgery postponed until March 8th, told myself I'd just read a little. Silly me, couldn't stop reading. Excellent, excellent. I got teary eyed at the end. Story had an underlying tone of real warmth and tenderness. Now what to read as I recover? Enjoy!

    I have read every single book this author has written. Because of that I am first in line for the next one. She just can't write a bad book. Her talent and imagination is mind boggling. I know her characters because she makes them so real. There's love, sex, friendship, family, hurt, and healing. There is also fun and laughter. Another hit for her In Death series !
  • Best Author ever!

    This is a great addition to the In Death series. Once again Eve Dallas if faced with a horrendous crime that brings back awful memories for her (the "echoes" in the title). The way the story progresses is well paved and interesting. Obviously those of us who have read all the previous entries in the series know what to expect from Eve and Rourke. We are not disappointed as we see their relationship further develop and see even more recognition from Eve as to how her life has changed for the better. She is better able to express those feelings now and that is so meaningful to Rourke. While I completely enjoyed the book I do have to say I was quite disappointed in the lack of appearances by series regulars that we have come to know and love. Hopefully we'll see more of them in the next chapter in the In Death journey.
