"It was a stab in the dark. On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan's neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel's best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel's blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional. Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime--from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn't think it's coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else's imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series. The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer's deranged private drama -- and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong."--… (mere)

In death 46
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
A good addition and a welcome relief from sexual predators that haunt this series. Plus, she finally got to work in what I think every writer I think, harbors a morbid fascination plus a lot of fear-the fan who loves your work so much they become delusional. In this case, the killer is copying the “work” of a famous and respected writer of police procedurals, only she wants the killer to win. It’s up to Eve and her merry gang to change the plot on her.

Not too much to say about this one. It didn't really grab me and I did have a hard time sticking with it. That usually never happens when I am reading an "In Death" book. Even when it's ticking me off, I am engrossed. I just felt slightly bored by this one. I do have to say that a serial killer (New York is full of them apparently) murdering women in this one due to books reminded me of a t.v. show. I honestly can't recall which one, but it was bugging me throughout this reading.

"Dark in Death" takes place in February and we have the usual comments about the weather in this one. Eve and Peabody are called into a murder at a movie theater. A young aspiring actress if found dead after going to catch the movie "Psycho".

I initially thought it would have something to do with Hitchcock, but nothing doing. Instead another murder is quickly brought to Eve's attention via Nadine with a murder mystery writer being seen as the ultimate target of a serial killer.

Not going to lie, a bit disappointed on how this one just lands in Eve's laps. There is no real detective work in this one. Nadine pops up and is all here is the inspiration behind these murders. The writer didn't interest me either. Hopefully she and her daughters don't appear in any future books. I got worried for a moment with someone else out there falling in love with Eve and then she be the subject of books like she already is the subject of a freaking Academy Award Winning movie.

I do have to say this one takes a look at a more romantic and homebody Eve. I don't know if this is Robb's way of showing how domestic Eve has gotten which of course may make some fans leap to the idea of Eve finally being ready to have a baby with Roarke. Either way, it was interesting, and I was glad to see things change up between Eve and Roarke. A pretty funny scene was when Roarke returns home after having a bad day at work (I know right? When does Roarke have bad days at work?) he finds Eve hanging out and reading a book. Then things go to Eve being up for some foreplay with her playing hide and seek with Roarke. Look I know it sounds weird, but I found it charming.

Peabody dialed down to regular. We still get some random comments from her, but I didn't want to kick her butt like I did when I read "Echoes in Death."

The big thing is I don't really buy the whole new relationship with Nadine. Reading about Eve and Roarke discussing it made it even more boring which I didn't think was possible. When the new guy throws out a comment about do Nadine and Eve ever argue with less clothing on, I went thumbs down mentally with him. Blech.

We get Dr. Mira and McNabb here, but not a lot of the old favorites. I can't remember the last time we saw Charles and Louise. Also where is the Commander at these days? Did he make an appearance in the last book?

The ending is a foregone conclusion. Even the confession scenes lacked a punch in this one. ( )

The latest in this long running series has Eve and Peabody working a string of murders based on a mystery series. They get the major clue thanks to the writer coming forward when she noticed that the circumstances of the latest killing matched a scene in her book. They quickly realize that the killer may be someone that has reached out to the author and may eventually go after her. With an idea of who may be the next victim Eve has a chance to stop the crime before it happens. The killer is caught in the end and the book comes to it usual good conclusion. Another good entertaining read in this series. ( )

A young actress is killed with an ice pick at the vid theater during the shower death in the Hitchcock movie Psycho. Let. Eve Dallas of the NYPSD Homicide Department is called in. A suspect was seen, but no one could identify the person. Then Nadine, a reporter friend of Dallas, brings in an author friend who might have insights into the murder. The murder seems to following a series of novels written by said author. Dallas does some searching and there, indeed, was a previous unsolved murder that mimicked the first book of the Dark series. Dallas and her partner Det. Peabody have to move quickly as there were 6 more novels, and therefore 6 more possible murders in the offing. After some serious police work, a link is found between a fan/writer who feels that the author stole his/her ideas. The action requires all hands on deck during the icy cold wintry mid February in NYC. The next possible victim appears to be a “skank” girlfriend of a local rock musician, causing Dallas and Peabody to explore the dark drug, sex and rock and roll lives of possible new victims. This was a fast moving story. A bit different from the usual Eve Dallas In Death novel as it evolves around another series of books. ( )
