Missing in Death (In Death #29.5)
Investigating a woman's disappearance on a New York City ferry, Detective Eve Dallas wonders…if she didn't jump, and she's not on board, then where in the world is she?
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Robb
Roarke ~ "It takes more than skill and duty to make a good cop.....it takes an unfailing sense of right and wrong"
Eve ~ "Yea, but it's a hell of a lot easier when they don't overlap."
I can't remember ever saying this before but, the plot of Missing in Death was too big for a novella. Fleshed out properly it had the potential of being a stellar full length novel. With spies, government agencies, high tech weaponry, missing people, and murder - it was an In Death home run just waiting to happen! ...more
I love how Nora always tries to play with her novellas just a little bit more. It's not about plausibility, but instead about having fun while writing a short story. In this regard Missing in Death has certainly delivered. Recommended.

Я люблю как Нора Робертс всегда старается немного поиграть со своими повестями и завести их в кросс-жанры. то у неё происходит что-то паранормальное, но в этот раз она залезла в шпионский роман. В общем, было весело и интересно. Рекомендую.
A woman has no memory of the past few hours. She actually walked in on a murder that took place in the bathroom on a tour boat. There is a huge mystery of how the killer got off the boat, but it was actually quite simple how he got off.
Eve ends up letting the killer go as he killed for retribution against the same agency that did not protect Eve as a child.

In most of Eve's cases, she has some evidence to start her case. At the very least, she has a body. Missing in Death throws Eve for a loop because the case itself is so unusual: a crime scene, but no body with an entire passenger ferry full of people as potential suspects.
Missing in Death had all of the hallmarks of an In Death novel, squeezed into a small format. It was like watching your favorite movie in a half hour ...more

This is my first J.D. Robb book and it seemed pretty much like a murder mystery for dummies -- no thinking or figuring out is required by the reader as the author is sure to over explain everything and even if you don't believe it, you understand it. Also, for some reason the author decided this should take place in the future ...more
The beginning was quite suspenseful though as I began to think about how the murderer worked out the "missing" body and where the "missing" passenger has gone for an hour without being seen by anyone. But the ending was so bad it was just...stupid. The explanation was all this futuristic mumbo jumbo which didn't even satisfy the depths of ...more
