Overview

J. D. Robb’s In Death novels have been praised as “Law & Order: SVU—in the future” (Entertainment Weekly). Now, together in one volume, three stories that spotlight Lieutenant Eve Dallas doing what she does best: solving crime with skill, integrity, and passion…

“Eternity in Death”
A seductive killer is luring in victims with a promise of the impossible—immortality. Eve Dallas must strip away the fantasy to catch the coldhearted madman.

“Ritual in Death”
Eve is plunged into the violent aftermath of a ritualistic murder—and into the mind of an alleged witness who can’t remember a thing to save his life.

“Missing in Death”
When a woman disappears from aboard a New York City ferry, it’s a case that only Eve Dallas can solve—because the woman didn’t jump and yet she’s not on board…

Meet the Author

Nora Roberts

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.

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.

    WARNNG...please read!!!!

    If you own all of the books in the "In Death" series, do NOT buy this! It's not a new title, but a compilation of three already published titles that have already been released in her anthologies or as mini titles for $2.99. Unless you don't own them or any of the compilations (Eternity in Death is in "Dead of Night", Ritual in Death is in "Suite 606", and Missing in Death is in "Lost"), it's not worth it to someone who has the full collection of titles.

    What a gyp

    The free sample was 13pages of credits, no story, and why not be honest and say these are re releases?

    Excellant reprint that combined the 4th, 5th, and 6th short story.

    I have read these short stories over the years as they were published in a one book three author style. When I found Three in Death which contained the first three short stories I was thrilled. And I have been waiting for the next three to be reprinted in a single book.
    I always study any book to determine if it is new story or a reprint of an older novel. And sometimes I am on the hunt for reprinted books because of not beening able to find a good used copy.

    Sample

    I asked for the sample of the book and it gave 13 pages. These pages were telling what books are also written by J.D. Robb and all the anthologies. It did not show any of the actual story so I could tell whether I wanted these.

    Highly Recommended

    If you love LT Eve Dallas and the cast of characters in the "In Death" series, you must read these short stories. I never want to miss a moment. You can't put down these stories once you start. You have to find out what happens.

    J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts has a unique talent for writing both mysteries and romances. Her work is always well researched and interesting. This book with vampirism is different and refreshing.

    Another great story. . .

    Eve and Roarke never disappoint. This story had little of the other characters in the typical "Death" series. But the reader finally finds out what became of Eve's mother.

    It doesn't matter what this author writes, or how many books she's done in the series, it is always fresh with the plot moving you forward in the characters life, I have yet to feel let down when reading one of her multiple books. She keeps you wanting more.
