Echoes in Death (Abridged / Compact Disc)
Eve and Roarke are on their way home from a fancy shindig when a naked, bloody woman steps in front of their car. With their quick thinking and even quicker driving they manage to save her – but discover her husband dead in their home - plunging the NYPD detective, Roarke and her team into a brutal new case.
This book is a very fast and absorbing read. The book is very focused on the crime Eve is investigating and on the detective herself. While I know she is the story’s protagonist there is usually more of the side charecters present in the narrative than there was in this installment. However because this book was so laser-focused on catching the killer – you don’t really miss them until you get to the end of the book – and wonder where the heck they were! Robb does mention them, moving their lives forward with news bandied about by other characters, so you are not totally out of the loop.
But as I said you don’t really miss them – the case, book and Eve are so focused and fast paced (there isn’t another word for it) you really don’t notice until the end that they weren’t there. I would recommend this book to any of the In Death fans – Robb (or whoever is writing them now) does a good job in hitting all the right notes in a way which doesn’t make the book feel stale. Which, after 44 installments, is a job of work!— Amber
THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES . . .
The chilling suspense novel from the author of Brotherhood in Death.
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?
