Obsession in Death by J. D. Robb
  

Lovereading view...

There's a thin line between hero worship and dangerous obsession ... the explosive new Eve Dallas and Roarke thriller


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The merest glance at the back catalogue of J D Robb (better known as Nora Roberts) discloses one of the most prolific authors in the field, and, while not everything has been top drawer in her imposing CV, her success rate is truly prodigious, and Obsession in Death proves to be among her best work. On a winter morning in New York, in a luxury apartment, the body of a woman lies dead on a massive bed. Scrawled in ink on the wall above her is a message: ‘For Lieutenant Eve Dallas with great admiration and understanding.’ Needless to say, for Dallas herself, celebrated for her high-profile cases, this is an unwelcome greeting – and tracking down her sinister admirer becomes a matter of urgency. We are back in ticking clock territory, but those who’ve read other books by Roberts (under whatever name) will know that this is a secure area for the writer.

Synopsis

Obsession in Death by J. D. Robb

A crisp winter morning in New York. In a luxury apartment, the body of a woman lies stretched out on a huge bed. On the wall above, the killer has left a message in bold black ink: FOR LIEUTENANT EVE DALLAS, WITH GREAT ADMIRATION AND UNDERSTANDING. Eve Dallas is used to unwanted attention. Famous for her high-profile cases and her marriage to billionaire businessman Roarke, she has learned to deal with intense public scrutiny and media gossip. But now Eve has become the object of a singular and deadly obsession. She has an 'admirer', who just can't stop thinking about her. Who is convinced they have a special bond. Who is planning to kill for her - again and again...With time against her, Eve is forced to play a delicate - and dangerous - psychological dance. Because the killer is desperate for something Eve can never provide - approval. And once that becomes clear, Eve knows her own life will be at risk - along with those she cares about the most.
