Overview

Number Twelve is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted…and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number Twelve a cultural icon. Several bullets from a banned gun end his dream of returning the building to its former glory.

With everyone around her talking about the supernatural, pragmatic Eve won’t let rumors of ghosts distract her from hard evidence. The case becomes even more bizarre when it appears to be linked to the suspicious disappearance of a rock star eighty-five years ago. As Eve searches for the connection, logic clashes with the unexplainable. She may be forced to face the threat of something more dangerous than a flesh-and-blood killer.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rapture in Death is the fourth in Robb's series featuring Lt. Eve Dallas of the NYPD of the mid-21st century. It fittingly begins at the end of Eve and Roark's honeymoon at a new off-planet resort that is part of Roark's business empire. One of his young employees has committed suicide, found hanging in his quarters with an incongruous smile on his face. After the newly married couple returns home, Eve is confronted with other suicides using different methods but all featuring the same disconcerting grin. She concludes that this is no coincidence and somehow someone is sending these people to their deaths. When Eve realizes that one of the targeted victims is Roark, her own happiness is threatened. Rapture's length gives Susan Ericksen more scope for her talented reading. Haunted in Death, a novella published in the anthology Bump in the Night, is the 26th Eve Dallas adventure. It centers around Number Twelve, the "in" spot of the 1960s-is it really haunted or is there a modern-day murderer inhabiting the building? Eve is definitely part of the latter school of thought, but she is surprised to find herself in the minority. Libraries will want both programs, as Robb's amusing mysteries are absorbing entertainment.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D.

This was a fast novella and strange too. Eve had to discover the killer of those people, one was buried in the building 85 years ago, so the second murder was a connection for sure. Roarke believes in the rumors about a ghost and the building was haunted, so they had a little problem in agreeing sometimes, but that’s a side of their relationship that I love. They are not perfect and both realise the moments to trust in your partner. The murders for me was too simple, but I loved Eve and Roarke making up.
