Apprentice in Death (Hardcover)
There is a sniper on the loose in NY – one the NYPSD has profiled as a long distance serial killer, a type of crime which hasn’t really been seen since the Urban Wars. To help Eve, Roarke writes a computer program which uses geometry of the murder scenes to help narrow down where the sniper’s nest is located – which turns out to be wildly successful. But that program provides a huge shock – there are two shooters and one is a teen…. So once again Eve and her team are racing against the clock to catch the killers before they strike again.
The past few Robb books have been a bit off – i.e. too violent or cozy – they felt like someone else was following a formula and writing them. This book however does not! This book feels like the Dallas of old and is WONDERFUL!
Seriously, if you have read this series before, I think you will be pleased with this book – it has everything you look for in an Eve Dallas book without ever feeling formulaic or forced. I can honestly say this is the best book in the last six or eight in the series. If you’ve enjoyed the series in the past and need a fix which will leave you satisfied when it finishes – then this is the book for you!

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb.
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park's ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.
Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.
Eve's husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources--and genius--at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two--one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we're all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...
