The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the third novel of her acclaimed "Death" series, Robb (the pseudonym for Nora Roberts) once again sets her 21st-century police detective heroine on the trail of a murderer. Set against the background of the youth-obsessed, drug-using fashion industry, this suspenseful tale sweeps from the glitzy to the seamy with all the flair and panache one has come to expect from Robb. Although the romance is not so prominent here, the sexual tension still simmers. The author of over 100 romances (primarily as Nora Roberts), Robb has written futuristic romantic suspense stories that include Naked in Death (Berkley, 1995). She lives in Keedysville, Maryland.

Meet the Author

J.D. Robb is the pseudonym for a number-one New York Times–bestselling author of more than 200 novels, including the futuristic suspense In Death series. There are more than 400 million copies of her books in print.

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of more than 200 novels. She is also the author of the bestsellingIn Deathseries written under the pen name J.D. Robb. There are more than 500 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.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    The second book in J.D. Robb's "...IN DEATH" series, following NAKED IN DEATH, is another winner. The thing I love the most about this series, besides the awesome, fully-developed characters, is the fact that the mystery is ALWAYS thrilling and realistic. <BR/><BR/>This time around, popular, well-known, outspoken women are being murdered - their throats viciously slashed. As Eve works to discover the true killer, she also finds family secrets, devious reporters, and new friends in strange places. <BR/><BR/>GLORY IN DEATH features the first appearance of Peabody, a larger role for Nadine Furst, and the first glimpse into what Eve's childhood really entailed. <BR/><BR/>I'm absolutely LOVING rediscovering my favorite romantic suspense series of all time!!

    Absolutely Wonderful

    What an adventure. The characters comes to life. I read the books years ago, so I wanted the audio for my long commutes. Susan Ericksen is the perfect reader for all of the in Death series. This is a quick read, your totally engrossed, a little romance and a lot of fast past action and thrills will keep you reading this story until its conclusion.

    I wish there were a higher rating to give ...

    This book delivers! Full stop. Like mystery? This is the real deal. Like suspense? Got it here ... How about all the excitement of a thriller ... ditto! And the romance? Well, it doesn't disappoint, and for my two cents, Roarke (he of the no last name) is the sexiest contemporary hero ever written. When I read earlier Nora Roberts books, I can discern how she crafted him, distilled him into the man he is in this very excellent series. And Eve is a tortured, conflicted, brilliant, utterly sympathetic heroine. Read it. Read them all. Just do it.

    I read this most excellent book when it first came out and had forgotten how good it was. Although the book was a bit predictable, we got to meet the indomitable Peabody.

    Well worth reading again.

    Lieutenant Eve Dallas of NYPSD is working a new homicide case where powerful women are killed. Eve is unsure of her relationship with Roarke because she doesn't deal well with her emotions and she's constantly afraid to show her emotions to anyone. Eve and C.J. Morse hate each other with a passion. Morse is positively gleeful that he scooped rival news anchor Nadine Furst which doesn't endear him to Eve at all. Eve and Roarke fight about Eve's lack of emotional response when Roarke declares his love for her that they breakup. Eve throws herself into her work so she doesn't have to feel period. Captain Feeney and Commander Whitney notice Eve's distress. Eve hatches a plan to catch the killer with Nadine. Will Eve's plan work? Will Roarke and Eve makeup? Who is the killer? Your answers await you in Glory in Death.




    I freely admit that I wanted to smack Eve up the side of the head for her stupidity with regards to her feelings toward Roarke. Roarke understands Eve better than she knows herself at this point and I don't see that changing any time soon. Captain Feeney and Commander Whitney proved to me that he understands Eve's needs better than she does. I flat out hate C.J. Morse from first page to last page. I love the pulse pounding pace to these books! I look forward to my next adventure in this series.

    Best ever series

    I have never been disappointed in this series. Each book is action packed and still has the element surprise as Detective Eve Dallas learns to love and to trust others. Keep writing them JD and I will continue to read and enjoy them.

    Why is it that when you finally found someone that you are ready to share a bed with, they are in trouble?
    And when I say trouble, in Eve Dallas's case, I mean life or death situations here!!

    Eve has just found the man of her dreams that can take all the pain away from her past and when
    things are starting to look good for her, bodies powerful woman start piling up before her.
    And who may be next?
