‘Calculated in Death’ by J D Robb

Published by Piatkus,
26 February 2013.
ISBN: 978-0-7499-5934-0

This is the 36th book in this highly acclaimed series.  Set in 2060 it features tough no nonsense Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD.  The discovery of the body of a woman outside an empty office in New York's financial district looks at first like a mugging gone wrong.  But it doesn’t sit right with Eve.  The victim Marta Dickenson was an auditor for some high profile companies.  She is also the sister-in-law of a well-known judge.  As Eve along with her side-kick Detective Peabody delve into the lives of those around Marta, and the companies that she was auditing, she comes up against some powerful people. But why kill the auditor?

Like the thirty five preceding books, it’s a fast pace thriller.  Spiced up with several sexual scenes with charismatic gorgeous husband Rourke.  If I have one issue with Eve Dallas it’s her total disinterest in clothes, all that money and zero interest in clothes it isn’t healthy.

A must for fans who will be beating a path to buy this latest Eve Dalles investigation, and they won’t be disappointed.

J D Robb. With a phenomenal career full of bestsellers, Nora Roberts was ready for a new writing challenge. A pseudonym offered her the opportunity to reach a new and different group of readers. The first futuristic suspense J. D. Robb book, Naked in Death, was published in paperback in 1995, and readers were immediately drawn to Eve Dallas, a tough cop with a dark past, and her even more mysterious love interest, Roarke. The In Death books are perpetual bestsellers, and frequently share the bestseller list with other Nora Roberts novels. J. D. Robb publishes two hardcover In Death books per year, with the occasional stand-alone original In Death story featured in an anthology.
Thirty books and fifteen years later, there is no end in sight for the ever-popular In Death series.
