Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises is framed for murder, Eve Dallas takes the case and finds it full of red herrings. She and her elite crew of techno-geeks follow each one, human and electronic, to cull truth from appearance. After gulps of real coffee and meals that include real beef served up by the charming Roarke on his new barbeque, they close on this complicated case. Characters continue to develop as Eve and Roarke face a crisis in their marriage, Peabody imitates Eve as she comes to terms with her new job, and the mysterious candy thief continues to rob Eve of her chocolate with impunity. Filled with humor and tension, this is another enjoyable mystery read by the talented and skilled Susan Ericksen; her range of voices and accents and ability to pull each character in without missing a beat bring listeners to the center of the story and leave them wanting more. Recommended for popular collections.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D. Rockefeller Jr. Lib., Colonial Williamsburg Fdn., VA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Nora Roberts is the number-one New York Times-bestselling author of more than 150 novels, including High Noon, Angels Fall, Blue Smoke, and Northern Lights. She is also the author of the bestselling futuristic suspense series written under the pen name J. D. Robb. There are more than 280 million copies of her books in print.

Biography

Not only has Nora Roberts written more bestsellers than anyone else in the world (according to Publishers Weekly), she’s also created a hybrid genre of her own: the futuristic detective romance. And that’s on top of mastering every subgenre in the romance pie: the family saga, the historical, the suspense novel. But this most prolific and versatile of authors might never have tapped into her native talent if it hadn't been for one fateful snowstorm.

As her fans well know, in 1979 a blizzard trapped Roberts at home for a week with two bored little kids and a dwindling supply of chocolate. To maintain her sanity, Roberts started scribbling a story -- a romance novel like the Harlequin paperbacks she'd recently begun reading. The resulting manuscript was rejected by Harlequin, but that didn't matter to Roberts. She was hooked on writing. Several rejected manuscripts later, her first book was accepted for publication by Silhouette.

For several years, Roberts wrote category romances for Silhouette -- short books written to the publisher's specifications for length, subject matter and style, and marketed as part of a series of similar books. Roberts has said she never found the form restrictive. "If you write in category, you write knowing there's a framework, there are reader expectations," she explained. "If this doesn't suit you, you shouldn't write it. I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure."

Roberts never violated the reader's expectations, but she did show a gift for bringing something fresh to the romance formula. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred (1981), had as its heroine a strong-willed horse groom, in contrast to the fluttering young nurses and secretaries who populated most romances at the time. But Roberts's books didn't make significant waves until 1985, when she published Playing the Odds, which introduced the MacGregor clan. It was the first bestseller of many.

Roberts soon made a name for herself as a writer of spellbinding multigenerational sagas, creating families like the Scottish MacGregors, the Irish Donovans and the Ukrainian Stanislaskis. She also began working on romantic suspense novels, in which the love story unfolds beneath a looming threat of violence or disaster. She grew so prolific that she outstripped her publishers' ability to print and market Nora Roberts books, so she created an alter ego, J.D. Robb. Under the pseudonym, she began writing romantic detective novels set in the future. By then, millions of readers had discovered what Publishers Weekly called her "immeasurable diversity and talent."

Although the style and substance of her books has grown, Roberts remains loyal to the genre that launched her career. As she says, "The romance novel at its core celebrates that rush of emotions you have when you are falling in love, and it's a lovely thing to relive those feelings through a book."

Good To Know

Roberts still lives in the same Maryland house she occupied when she first started writing -- though her carpenter husband has built on some additions. She and her husband also own Turn the Page Bookstore Café in Boonsboro, Maryland. When Roberts isn't busy writing, she likes to drop by the store, which specializes in Civil War titles as well as autographed copies of her own books.

Roberts sued fellow writer Janet Dailey in 1997, accusing her of plagiarizing numerous passages of her work over a period of years. Dailey paid a settlement and publicly apologized, blaming stress and a psychological disorder for her misconduct.

Read an Excerpt

1.

lieutenant eve dallas, one of new york's top cops, sprawled naked with the blood beating in her ears and her heart pounding like an airjack. She managed to wheeze in a breath, then gave it up.

Who needed air when the system was revving from the aftermath of truly spectacular sex?

Beneath her, her husband lay warm and hard and still. The only movement was the knock of his heart against hers. Until he lifted one of those amazing hands and cruised it along her spine, from nape to butt.

"You want me to move," she mumbled, "you're out of luck."

"I'd say my luck's in."

She smiled in the dark. She loved hearing his voice, the way Ireland shimmered through it. "Pretty good welcome home, especially since you were gone less than forty-eight hours."

"It certainly put a nice cap on a short trip to Florence."

"I didn't ask, did you stop off in Ireland to see your-" She hesitated just a beat. It was still so odd to think of Roarke with family. "Your family?"

"I did, yes. Had a nice few hours." He continued to stroke that hand, up and down, up and down her back so that her heartbeat slowed and her eyes began to droop. "It's very strange, isn't it?"

"I guess it will be, for a while yet."

"And how's the new detective?"

Eve snuggled in, thinking of her former aide and how she was handling her recent promotion. "Peabody's good. Still finding her rhythm. We had a family dispute gone sour. Two brothers mixing it up over inherited property. Knocked the shit out of each other before one of them takes a header down the steps and breaks his stupid neck. So the other brother tries to mock it up like a bungled burglary. Tosses all this stuff they were fighting over in a blanket, hauls it out to his car, shoves it in the trunk. Like we're not going to look there."

The derision in her tone had him chuckling. Eve rolled off and stretched.

"Anyway, it was pretty much connect the big, pulsing red dots, so I put Peabody on as primary. After she started breathing again, she did fine. Sweepers were already sucking up evidence, but she takes this jerk in the kitchen, sits down with him all sympathetic-used all that family business she knows so well. Had him babbling out a confession in about ten minutes. Got him on Man Two."

"Good for her."

"It'll help build her confidence." She stretched again. "We could use a few more walks in the meadow like that one after the summer we put in."

"You might take a few days off. We could walk in a real meadow."

"Give me a couple of weeks with her. I want to make sure she finds her feet before I let her solo."

"That's a date, then. Oh, your ...enthusiastic welcome, while much appreciated, drove this right out of my mind." He got out of bed, calling for the lights at ten percent.

In their subtle glow, she could watch him step off the wide platform where the bed stood, move toward the small bag he'd taken with him. Watching him move, graceful as some lean, elegant cat, gave her such pleasure.

Was that kind of grace innate, she wondered, or had he learned it dodging cops and picking pockets as a child on the streets of Dublin? However it had come to him, it had served him well, as that clever boy, and as the clever man who'd built an empire out of guts and guile and a wily kind of genius.

When he turned, and she saw his face in that shadowed light, it blew straight through her. The staggering love, the breathless wonder that he should be hers-that anything so beautiful should be hers.

He looked like a work of art, one carved by some brilliant sorcerer. The keen bones of his face, the generous mouth that was sensual magic. Those eyes, that wild Celtic blue, that could still make her throat ache when they looked at her. And that miraculous canvas was framed by black silk that swept nearly to his shoulders, and continually made her fingers itch to touch it.

They'd been married more than a year, and there were times, unexpected times, when just looking at him could stop her heart.

He came back to sit beside her, cupped her chin in his hand, brushed his thumb over the little dent in its center. "Darling Eve, so still and quiet in the dark." He touched his lips to her brow. "I've brought you a present."

She blinked, and immediately edged back. It made him smile, this habitual reaction of hers to gifts. Just as the uneasy look she gave the long, narrow box in his hand made him grin.

"It won't bite you," he promised.

"You weren't even gone two days. There has to be some sort of time requirement for bringing back presents."

"I missed you after two minutes."

"You're saying that to soften me up."

"Doesn't make it less true. Open the box, Eve, then say: 'Thank you, Roarke.'"

She rolled her eyes, but she opened the box.

It was a bracelet, a kind of cuff with a pattern of minute diamond shapes etched into the gold to give it sparkle. In the center was a stone-and as it was bloodred, she assumed it was a ruby-big as her thumb and smooth to the touch.

It looked old, and important, in that priceless antique way that made her stomach jitter.
"Roarke-"

"You forgot the thank-you part."

"Roarke," she said again. "You're going to tell me this once belonged to some Italian countess or-"

"Princess," he supplied, and took the bracelet from her to slip it onto her wrist. "Sixteenth century. Now it belongs to a queen."

"Oh, please."

"Okay, that was laying it on a bit thick. Looks good on you, though."

"It'd look good on a tree stump." She wasn't much on glitters, despite the fact that the man heaped them on her at every opportunity. But this one had...something, she thought as she lifted her arm and turned her wrist so the stone and etching caught and scattered light. "What if I lose it, or break it?"

"That would be a shame. But until you do, I enjoy seeing it on you. If it makes you feel any better, my aunt Sinead seemed equally flustered by the necklace I bought her."

"She struck me as a sensible woman."

He tugged a lock of Eve's hair. "The women in my life are sensible, enough to indulge me as giving them gifts brings me such pleasure."

"That's a slick way to box it in. It's beautiful." And she had to admit, at least privately, that she liked the way it slid fluidly over her skin. "I can't wear this to work."

"I don't suppose so. Then again, I like the way it looks on you now. When you're wearing nothing else."

"Don't get any ideas, ace. I'm on shift in-six hours," she calculated after a glance at the time.

Because she recognized the gleam in his eye, she narrowed her own. But the token protest she intended to give was interrupted by the bedside 'link.

"That's your signal." She nodded toward the 'link, then rolled off the bed. "At least when somebody calls you at two in the morning, nobody's dead."

She wandered off into the bathroom as she heard him block video, and answer.

She took her time, then as an afterthought snagged the robe off the back of the door in case he'd reinstated the video on the 'link.
She was belting it as she went back in, and saw he was up and at his closet. "Who was it?"

"Caro."

"You've got to go now? At two in the morning?" His tone, just the way he'd said his admin's name, had the skin on her neck prickling. "What is it?"

"Eve." He pulled out a shirt to go with the trousers he'd hastily put on. "I need a favor. A very large favor."

Not from his wife, she thought. But from his cop. "What is it?"

"One of my employees." He dragged on the shirt, but his eyes stayed on Eve. "She's in trouble. Considerable trouble. Someone is dead, after all."

"One of your employees kill someone, Roarke?"

"No." Since she continued to stand where she was, he moved to her closet, took out clothes. "She's confused and panicked, and Caro says somewhat incoherent. These are not traits one associates with Reva. She works in Security. Design and installation, primarily. She's solid as stone. She was with the Secret Service for a number of years, and isn't a woman who shakes easily."

"You're not telling me what happened."

"She found her husband and her friend in bed at the friend's apartment. Dead. Already dead, Eve."

"And finding two dead bodies, she contacted your administrative assistant instead of the police."

"No." He pushed the clothes he'd chosen into Eve's hands. "She contacted her mother."

Eve stared at him, cursed softly, then began to dress. "I have to call this in."

"I'm asking you to wait, until you see for yourself, until you talk to Reva." He laid his hands on hers, held them there until she looked back at him again. "Eve, I'm asking you, please, wait that long. You don't have to call in what you haven't seen with your own eyes. I know this woman. I've known her mother more than a dozen years, and trust her to the level I trust very few. They need your help. I need it."

She picked up her weapon harness, strapped it on. "Then let's get there. Fast."

Interviews & Essays

An Interview with Leslie Gelbman, Nora Roberts's Editor

Nora Roberts has a claim to fame that few authors can equal. She's become a No. 1 New York Times–bestselling author under two separate names. As her alter ego, J. D. Robb, makes her hardcover debut this month, Ransom Notes talked with Nora/J.D.'s longtime editor, Leslie Gelbman, about what it's like to work with such a phenomenal writer. (Or is that two phenomenal writers?)

Ransom Notes: What do you think is the biggest difference between Nora Roberts's contemporary novels and the mysteries she writes as J. D. Robb?

Leslie Gelbman: Nora is very prolific. The J. D. Robb series was originally conceived as a way to let Nora publish more novels in a year. Nora loved the idea of setting a series in the near future and wanted to explore the mystery elements in a tougher, edgier way. That led to the Eve Dallas character, a darker character who is still very human.

Nora is a fabulous writer, and I was a fan before we worked together. Nora has been publishing with Penguin Group (USA) for more than a decade now, and one of the best things about being her editor is getting to read everything she writes as soon as she writes it! And now, of course, I'm completely hooked on the Robb books, too -- the way she has developed Eve and Roarke's relationship over time, I can't wait to see what happens to them next. The real excitement, though, is watching Nora develop each character independently -- and at the same time watching the relationships mature and evolve.

Eve Dallas is the heart of the J. D. Robb series -- her passion and intelligence drive the stories and keep every book fresh and immediate. But Nora has created a complete world for Eve, and that includes a set of fabulous secondary characters. Roarke, Peabody, Summerset, and the rest have their own lives and vitality, and fans have fallen in love with all of them. I wouldn't be able to pick a favorite character, but I've loved watching the friendship between Eve and Peabody develop.

RN: Who decided to go public with the connection between J. D. Robb and Nora Roberts? And what influenced the decision to shift the J. D. Robb mysteries from paperback to hardcover original publication?

LG: Nora and her agent, Amy Berkower, and I truly worked as a team to make all of these decisions. We wanted readers to come to the Eve Dallas series, first and foremost because they were intrigued by the premise and loved the writing. Once we knew we had a core readership, we wanted to broaden the fan base -- that's when we decided to go public.

The move to hardcover was one we've been considering for the Robb books for a while. Many of Nora's fans are collectors, and they've asked for hardcover editions. It's important to Nora to keep publishing two Robb books per year, though, so you won't see a slowdown there. The Remember When collaboration was a great hardcover launch for Eve and Roarke, because it introduced a new set of readers to the J. D. Robb world. If any Nora Roberts fans didn't know about J. D. Robb before, they definitely do now!

RN: Can you tell us about the Penguin Group's future plans for Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb?

LG: We're pleased and privileged to be Nora's sole publisher and have many future books signed up, under both the Nora Roberts and J. D. Robb names.

    Love changes people, sometimes because of it they do horrible things, but love also can make mirracles, because it is the gratest mirracle of all

    I live in Bulgaria - a very small country where lot of things are not OK. I read the first IN DEATH book in 1994 and it changed my life forever! It made me believe in the power of love - the love that makes you want to live after your life has became a total mess. I appreciate these books because they show the very primary principels of the good marriage - strong and passionate love, stong characters who change and adjust themselves in order to obtain ballance in the couple, the courage to stay together and overcome the darkness, the support one gives to his partner. Many people want to know Roarke's first name, but I think that he is better to stay just Roarke - his mistery dark side is very important. It is the one that fights the evil and makes him the right partner for Eve. I'll really enjoy Eve's pregnancy. I suggest another series - in 30 years later with their children as detectives and financial magicians. I suppose a film on the novels will be interesting, but it'll never be as magic as the books are! I hope when you read the IN DEATH books you'll come out with the thought that LOVE is the energy that moves the world and stops the evil.We must charrish it, and help it,and overcome the fear of feeling it, and of coarse - enjoy it!

    Spectacular, tense, sexy, dangerous

    I'm an avid fan of the Death series, and this is definitely one of the best, rivaling my all time favorites Naked and Death. Many features make this book so spectacular. For one thing, Roarke and all the characters are completely integrated into the plot/mystery. We get a deeper insight into many of the secondary characters such as Dr. Mira, Caro, Mavis, and Feeney. And, we see the true progression in Eve and Roarke's relationship with one another. The honeymoon is definitely over and they must each set priorities and decide how to proceed with a situation that threatens to destroy what they've built.

    Brilliant

    The Eve and Roarke series is so addictive. Even my daughter is hooked on them. When a new one comes out, I have to buy one for her and for me so that she doesn't take mine. Every time I go into a book store, I look to see if there's a new 'Death' book out. I'm hoping it's a long time before Nora stops writing them. The series is outstanding. I've read and reread each and every one many times.

    What can I say?

    Several years back, while in a small book store, one of the ladies recommended I read the first 'In Death' book. I told her it didn't sound like a book I would like, but I would give it a shot. I WAS HOOKED! I have read all of this series. I pre-order them. I have cried and laughed and held my breath as the stories unfold. Each book just keeps getting better. While reading this one, I laughed so hard in some spots that I couldn't breath. These characters are part of me now. They are my friends. And I hope Ms. Roberts keeps writing this series for many years to come!

    You mean Eve and Rourke aren't real?

    My very first In Death book just so happened to be the first of the series and it was enough. I was hooked. I went out and bought EVERY book in the series to date and have read them all. My mother and I actually refer to Eve and Rourke as actual people. Ex. 'That's such an Eve thing to do. I hope when real foods are replaced w/ soy products that I am married to a man like Rourke!' (Hey, I'm only 22) We also find ourselves using their jargon. Nora knows how to make you care about a character. You fear, mourn, laugh, and cry with/for them. She is truly an exceptional writer!!!!

    Kathi, an avid fan and reader

    While looking for a new author to read I found the IN DEATH series. I bought the first book of the series in May, 2004 and have since read through the 18th book in the series (in just 2 months). I can¿t put the book down once I start it. Each book gets you more involved with the characters and wanting to know more. There is action, drama, and steamy romance in every book. You run the gamut of emotions in each link to this series. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every single one and can¿t wait for the next book to be published.My only wish is for the next book to come out faster than the last. I am glad I found the series after 18 books were written so I could read one after the other. It¿s murder waiting for the next one. Don¿t pass this series up, once you start you will be hooked.

    Extremely Great !!

    I've read every single In Death book up to Imitation in Death. I very much enjoy these books. My husband had bought all of them for me and I've finished in 3 months. These are the kind of books you can't put down. They're so funny and also very emotional at times. My sister in law and I have been reading/sharing these books through the entire thing. It's really great. I hope she doesn't stop writing about Eve and Roarke. It's one of the best series I have ever read. And I definitely agree, they should make a movie on this... God, I wonder who can be Roarke? (sigh)

    Great Books

    I love Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb, even though they are the same person. She writes great books and i cant wait to read any more that she has. I would also like to know Roarke's first name and more of Eve's past. I would also like to see this become a movie as well. Please make it into a movie.

    I'm loving It

    I love the entire In Death saga. Eve Dallas kicks major butt with her handsome and very sexy husband. I wish they would make these books into a movie too. However one of these days I'm reallyy going to have to find out Roarke first name. I bet it's Adam. You know, Adam and Eve. It'd be great. Read the entire saga if you can you never regretbecause you become so envolved with the plot and charaters it great.

    Awesome

    I loved the book, honestly I am a bookworm,and i have read every single In Death Books by J.D.Robb and this book, I could not put down. I even took my time with it because it was that awesome. It has everythink Betrayal,Scandal, a butt-kicking cop, a charming husband, and a thrill of your life and very life-like characters, make me wonder how did she come up with them.

    Divided in Death caught my attention right from the start.  Eve

    Divided in Death caught my attention right from the start.  Eve and Rourk have to come to terms with the things that were done to Eve as a child. Do you move onwith your life or let the past drag you down with it. This gows to show how much they have both grown.

    A Tough One for Eve, Roarke and the reader

    This one is a little bit different.

    Series fans have come to expect the usual great things: a tight plot, driven by somewhat eccentric yet completely enjoyable characters, he who-done-it slowly revealed through a number of unanticipated twists and turns, and story lines threaded from novel to novel which bind the characters ever closer together.

    "Divided in Death" has all of these, but not in the manner fans have come to expect. There is a huge amount of tension between Eve and Roarke that will likely be unsettling to the hard-core fan. Many of the situations revolve around family life and their inability to comprehend it and, while it's understandable given the their backgrounds, I feel the telling could have been less choppy and character's reactions less extreme. Some of Eve's and Roarke's interactions with themselves and others didn't seem to ring true to the characters as I know them. (Roarke may not be knowledgeable in every field, but to show outright incompetence - even in the situation described - is just not believable for me.)

    Having said that, however, the novel continues to develop the sub-plots and inter-character relationships. Skipping it would leave a hole in this character-rich series.

    This book was a difficult one for Eve and Roarke, because they had a huge argument and I was concerned for a moment about their relationship. I liked the idea of showing they are normal people and fight just like everybody else. Eve had a hard time with this case because she discovered a few things about her past and how things could be a little different.




    The case was difficult too, because involved a government agency, HSO, and of course they had a few issues with sharing, plus Eve was trying to help a friend of Roarke, the girl wasn’t guilt, but someone went to a lot of trouble to make it look like that. I liked the case, it was different and very dangerous for Eve. Her car suffered again.

    Murder always hurts. To the families of the victims, to the victims (of course) and also to the people
     who accused of murder. Even if she doesn't remember a thing.

    A member of Roarke's Enterprises security specialist is accused of murdering her husband
    and his lover. Although it's just plain ludacris, Eve still has to go by the book. She of course will
    stick her neck out because the suspect is well known to Roarke, but that still won't stop her from
    looking into everything that she can in the Reva Ewing's life. And things that may appear....should
    never have in the first place!!

    Catch another exciting one where Eve must battle with wits while keeping it cool at home!!

    Spectacularly bad

    Terrible. Actually close to unreadable. If a book ever deserved a negative star rating, this would be it.

    I dont know what else to say, other than struggling through this makes me want to send the author a bill for the hours lost out of my life trying to make heads or tails out of this.

    Another predictable series.

    Though well written the books are so predictable that I am finding myself skipping pages. Will be a while before I buy another book.
