In addition to its lighter tone, all of the characters I’ve come to know and love - mostly MIA in the last book – are back. I enjoyed this one a great deal.

Synopsis

#1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb knows that some roles are to die for…

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks as though she could be her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building.

Talented but rude and widely disliked, K.T. Harris made an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster to step into the role she was born to play: cop.

Robb does all too little with the promising notion... of this futuristic, but surprisingly retro, closed-circle game of Hollywood squares.

Celebrity in Death fits inside a standard whodunit format, but Robb/Roberts, whose imaginative powers and sheer stamina must be the envy even of other bestselling writers, fluidly takes her story and its people beyond ordinary time and place.

There are plenty of twists and turns throughout–and adding the history of the past story... brings a sense of validity to the novel.

Robb was able to translate the egos and foibles of the Hollywood set very well to the written word.

The investigation here focuses on motivations and personalities, and it's shot through with humour. Eve and Peabody's working relationship continues to develop, and I love seeing them work together.
