"A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people's secrets is silenced. The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening. The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described "social information reporter," or as most people would call it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich, prominent marks, she'd find out what they most wanted to keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone's done the same to her, literally--with a knife to the brachial artery. Eve didn't like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even less. To find justice for this victim, she'll have to plunge into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to some information she really didn't want to know..."--… (mere)

In Death 45

As with all of the In Death books, this was as amazing as they all are. I Love the characters and the plots and all of it. Susan Ericksen is one of the best Narrators. ( )

Eve's reluctantly out having a drink with a colleague when a woman collapses. First Eve tries to save her life then begins the hunt for her murderer. The trail will lead Eve down a rabbit hole of secrets and blackmail schemes and a very unlikeable victim.

There's a plethora of suspects as Mars cast her blackmailing net wide While I love Roarke, Eve, Peabody and the rest of the gang this wasn't my favorite in the 'In Death' series. This story felt like it wandered around until the very end, with an obvious suspect and left me feeling meh. "

Eve, acting very un-Eve like, goes to have a drink after work with a new colleague. She feels more comfortable when a dead body literally drops in front of her. Larinda Mars made her living as a gossip reporter. And she made her real living blackmailing some of her subjects. The criminal was a let down, but the price blackmail takes on the victims made this one of her more despicable corpses. ( )

I think to sum up this book was it wasn't great, but much better than the last few books. As some reviews noted, this one was pretty boring. At least we looked into a straight murder this time, but we still had to have the victim being the lowest of the low by targeting celebs who were victims of rape or molestation. Eve was Eve and there wasn't much depth to other characters besides a nice moment between Summerset and Roarke. I guessed the killer pretty easily because once again the bad guy might as well have worn a sign. There seemed to be hints about the victim's obsession, but it's glossed over.

Secrets in Death starts with DeWinter out with Eve hoping to clear the air. Eve is all kinds of wrong here so I'm over the mean girling of DeWinter. Eve still dangles her friendship out of reach and acts like DeWinter did something wrong by being friends with Morris. The hypocrisy of Eve regarding DeWinter being a "snob" made me laugh. You're married to a billionaire, take a seat.

A murder interrupts and Eve goes to work figuring who had the motive to kill a gossip columnist who was into blackmail. The victim was terrible, the people she blackmailed were not. Watching Eve interview wasn't that interesting except for a few scenes.

Most characters show up or are mentioned. There's a a hint that McNabb is burned out which could have been interesting, but that's done away with pretty quickly. We have Eve briefed on what I consider more interesting cases. Peabody was mature for five seconds than goes into straight clown mode again (her demanding her makeup get done is just...I can't talk about it without swearing).

As I said there's some development between Summerset and Roarke which I loved. A secret is out to rest that readers have known about for a while.

The writing is typical Robb. Be warned there's still redecorating discussion and now we also discuss Nadine's new digs and her decorating. The flow was up and down.

The setting of course is New York in February. I hope next book features a time jump by a couple of months.

The ending just occurs and is pretty cut and dry. I was expecting a few more pages and was surprised how the book just ends. ( )
