it was amazing

Eve Dallas, to me, is still one of the strongest female characters in literarure. She, Roarke, Peabody, McNab - every single one of these characters has become known and loved over the length of the In Death series, and this one sparkles with as much enthusiasm and sarcasm that the rest of the series has.

In this, we follow Eve into a world she would REALLY like to get away from - Hollywood. You see, her best friend's tell-all, true-crime novel is being made into a movie, so Eve and Peabody end up face to face with the women who look almost exacly like them who will star in the flick - both Lieutenant and her partner are a little grossed out. When they are invited to a Hollywood dinner for the cast, Eve wishes that SOMEONE would get murdered just so she can 'beg off,' but the only case she has is solved in about five seconds so Roarke makes his lovely wife go to the extremely murderous dinner.

The lady who will play Peabody on screen is not someone that the rest of the cast and crew like one iota. In fact, she is the meanest thing since sliced bread, so it's not a big shocker when she is the one who is found dead up on the roof next to the pool. Eve and Peabody soon find themselves knee-deep in secrets, lies, dead P.I.'s and more, as they uncover suspects that resemble the people they love most in life - trying to figure out who was the one who'd finally had enough of the Hollywood big mouth.

As with all the In Death books, the greatest part of the story is Eve. The dialogue that's written runs as smoothly as it possibly can; of course, J.D. Robb and Eve have been doing this 'literature dance' for a good, long time. As always, this is a must-read and, I swear, this 'cast' keeps getting better and better as time marches on! Enjoy!

Until Next Time, Everybody,
