After a party in New York, Lieutenant Eve Dallas rides home with her billionaire husband, Roarke, happy to be done with cocktails and small talk.

After another party, not far away, a woman retires to her bedroom with her husband—and walks into a brutal nightmare.

Their paths are about to collide…

When the young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve, still in glittering gown and heels, springs into action. It’s been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it’s far from over.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil” . . .

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked—and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife—this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

Jeanine Tucker | 196 comments Found something interesting last night in my re-read of Delusion in Death, which comes after New York to Dallas, with the novella Chaos, and another novel, Celebrity in Death, falling in between. In this installment there is a particularly poignant scene between Eve and Peabody (I won't spoil it here). Eve is talking about her parents with Peabody and says "...Sperm and egg--that's what they were. For eight years, between the two of them, they made me a victim. They made me afraid and gave me pain. Now they're dead. I'm not a victim. I'm not afraid. And pain? Not much. They can't hurt me anymore, so what I have, it's just echoes. It'll pass."----Maybe a clue? I can hardly wait to find out.

I really hope there's a reference in the book and if Ms. Roberts could still remember about this. :)

Ariel  (lamot_amant) | 48 comments Ah, this book needs to get here now. I got the teaser Happy Holidays card from St. Martin's in my mail today (my mail's been backed up because we're in the middle of moving so I'm not sure when it came actually). Do they do the cards signed by Eve and Roarke every year?

First time I'm seeing it but it has a pic of Echoes and Secrets on the back and Echoes just can't come fast enough, imo!


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 13392 comments Mod
Robb/Roberts switched publishers recently and this is new!


Ariel  (lamot_amant) | 48 comments Oh, I'd no idea she'd switched but this was so cool!


Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 13392 comments Mod
There's quite a discussion in progress about it in Let's Talk.


message 49: by Dawn (new) - rated it 5 stars

Dawn | 3245 comments Okay, I am going to try to put this link up. If it works, it is a commercial released by St. Martin's Press for the book. If it doesn't work, go to her FB page and check it out.

Ariel  (lamot_amant) | 48 comments It worked for me. That's so awesome!
