Whether she's writing her trademark women's fiction or the futuristic police procedural mysteries she creates under her recently revealed pseudoymn of J. D. Robb, the quality of Nora Roberts's writing is crystal clear.
It's never easy for New York City police detective Eve Dallas to shift gears between her career as aa hard-hitting homicide cop and the role she's recently assumed as a corporate wife and society hostess for her wealthy, powerful and handsome-as-sin husband, Roarke. In Visions in Death, Eve's tricky balancing act gets tougher than ever.
Eve had been hoping that the change of seasons would cool things off after the long, hot, unusually violent summer of 2059. But the chilling tableau she finds in Central Park at the scene of a sex-related homicide is definitely not the sort of "cool" Eve had in mind. In addition to brutally assaulting the victim and carefully arranging the death scene, the killer has cold-bloodedly removed the dead woman's eyes…and every cop instinct Eve possesses tells her she hasn't seen the last of this murderer.
She's got a great arsenal of investigative tools at her disposal -- from Roarke's off-the-record high-tech gadgets to top-notch forensic techniques, perceptive psychological profiling, media manipulation, and her own and her partner Peabody's meticulous police work. And though Eve's not much of a believer in visions, she even agrees to accept help from a psychic who claims to have somehow connected with the victims of this serial murderer. Faced with a killer who is as horrifying as the nightmares that haunt her own life, Eve will stop at nothing to see justice done. Sue Stone
