Overview

Settle in for five startling tales of uncanny suspense and disquieting romance—including an In Death story featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas from #1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb. 

Eve and Rourke return to investigate the murders of a series of luckless indigents—and the strange connection to a brilliant young surgeon in J. D. Robb's "Chaos in Death." 

In Mary Blayney's "Her Greatest Pleasure," a shopkeeper's solitude is complicated by a magic coin, a daring rogue, and dreams of her late husband, who whispers but one word...wish.

A lonely woman and a hotline psychic turn their astonishing connection to the other side into an unexpected romance in Patricia Gaffney's "Dear One." 

The shattered soul of an angry spirit imprisoned in a Scottish manor house could be a young widow's only salvation in Ruth Ryan Langan's "The Unforgiven." 

And in Mary Kay McComas's "His Brother's Keeper," a young ghost eases his brother's pain and guilt by inviting him into the dreams of an imaginative author of children's books.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the In Death series

“Robb is a virtuoso.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“It’s Law & Order: SVU—in the future.”—Entertainment Weekly

Library Journal
An appealing assortment of characters seek answers and, in some cases, internal "quiet" as they fight to make sense of a wide variety of strange happenings in this well-crafted anthology. Eve Dallas confronts a Jekyll and Hyde nightmare as she works to solve the gruesome murder of three recovering addicts in Robb's gripping, futuristic "Chaos in Death"; a mysterious coin works its magic in unexpected ways in Mary Blayney's Regency-set historical "Her Greatest Treasure"; a series of misunderstandings centering on a phone psychic eventually reward the characters in Patricia Gaffney's touching "Dear One"; a violent Highland ghost trapped in time resolves his issues with the help of a determined, fearless woman in Ruth Ryan Langan's sensual "Unforgiven"; and a ghost finally succeeds in bringing peace to his guilt-ridden brother by means of a psychically susceptible children's author in Mary Kay McComas's mesmerizing, sometimes unsettling "His Brother's Keeper." VERDICT While not Halloween-specific, this superbly conceived paranormal collection includes everything you'll need for a thrilling October read.

I only buy these books for the J. D. Robb novella, so I'm writing this review from a limited point-of-view. I normally enjoy the In Death Halloween novellas, but this one just didn't work for me. Maybe it's because I'm not that fond of the original story this is a knock-off of.

I bought this book only to read 33.5 of the "in death" series, which is all I have read. This short addition to the series is another good one. Of course the case wasn't as complicated as usual since the story was 10 chapters long. Personally for Eve Dallas, Roarke, and their friends they deal with the emotional after effects of the very personal case from "New York to Dallas." I do hope they address it a little more in "Celebrity in Death" since it wasn't touched on very much. The case seems unreal for the seasoned Lieutenant where it seems she is looking for a live monster. Another good read from J.D. Robb.

The stories weren't bad, they just weren't fleshed out. It seemed like maybe more was written, but someone edited them so they would fit into a certain amount of space. So sometimes they seemed to jump and not make sense

A must-have for JD Robb fans. JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts) always weaves a good tale and this is no exception. Publication date right before Halloween was perfect for this compilation of romance stories with a supernatural twist.

I enjoyed this one very much.

Eve Dallas is back in New York after facing her monsters in Dallas, only to be confronted with a new one on her home turf. Three people are dead, viciously assaulted by someone who, well, looks like a monster. It was great to see Lt. Dallas back in form as she tackles the latest case. She and Peabody were again in typical mode, with their normal banter and investigating procedures. We also see brief interludes with some of the others but, yes, it was too brief. I'm not a fan of the novellas and this one doesn't do anything to change my opinion. Just as you settle back to immerse yourself in the case, it ends...just enough to whet your appetite but not quite enough to satisfy it. I'll still keep reading them and will continue to be a huge fan of the series but I'm glad I waited my turn at the library for this story.
