Synopsis

Echoes in Death, the chilling new suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb is the perfect entry point into the compelling In Death police procedural series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband 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, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. 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?

Robb knows her audience will be highly sympathetic to a police heroine who has to walk a crime scene in uncomfortably fashionable stiletto heels, but along the winding trail to the easily spotted villain, she's not afraid to throw in some descriptions that will earn this installment an R for serious sexual violence.

Overall, I have no complaints. It wasn’t my favorite but is still a very enjoyable read. I miss these characters while waiting for the next book. I miss the button and all the other little things (no candy thief this time!). Honestly, I have to say I am waiting for the next Icove Agenda book.

Robb continues to do what she does in fine fashion and without misstep. ECHOES IN DEATH, as with the previous installments in this long-running series, gives Eve Dallas fans what they have come to expect, which is familiar characters in an exotic setting...

If you’re a Robb fan, you probably already have the book. If you aren’t, now is a good time to check her books out. You’ll be glad you did.

Reviewed by John Charles on Jan 01 2017

The millions of Eve Dallas fans worried about Robb’s (Nora Roberts) much ballyhooed switch to a new publisher can breathe a sigh of relief since the author’s latest tautly constructed entry is every bit as addictively readable as the previous 43 installments in this highly entertaining series.
