Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. And as ever, some murders receive more attention than others -- especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed -- and strangled -- with cords of black velvet ... It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders's scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation for the public -- and humiliation for his family. While everyone else in the city is talking about it, those close to Anders aren't so anxious to do so. Fortunately, because Dallas's billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Anders's sporting-goods firm was headquartered, she has some help with access. Before long, she's knocking on doors -- or barging through them -- to look for the answers she needs. But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the highly fortified apartment indicates that the killer was someone close to Anders, but everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the loving nephew who stands to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion -- or a carefully planned execution?… (mere)

In Death 26
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
Set in the near future, this is a world that is mostly recognisable with technological advances that are for the most part not explained, just given names. There is a murder at the beginning and quite quickly Lieutenant Eve Dallas has a feeling who the killer is but has to prove it. With some help from her wealthy husband, she mixes in high society getting underneath the glossy sheen. Well constructed novel that didn't quite grab me. ( )

Please note that I gave this 4.5 stars and rounded it up to 5 stars on Goodreads.

I was in a reading slump and finally climbed out of it due to some old In Death re-reads. I also read the latest and it reminded me all over again why I went from I love this series, to okay I can see some slowing down, to just meh. That said, "Strangers in Death" is one of my favorite re-reads even though I didn't give it five stars.

Eve Dallas and her partner Detective Delia Peabody are out to figure out who killed Thomas Anders. It appears to be a sex act gone wrong, but after Dallas takes one look at the scene, and who Anders was in his personal and professional life, she suspects murder. Now the hard part is proving it.

I really have to say that the main reason why I gave this just 4.5 stars was the fact that Dallas guesses who dun it really early (I mean I think it was around the 15 percent mark) and the rest of the book is just her pulling it together. We also have another case tying into this one and you start to put two and two together on how this was done.

We get the usual countdown clocks in this book. Eve being run down, Roarke nagging her to eat, Eve consuming the size of a small bucket of coffee, and just good police work. I did skip over the romance scenes just because they read so samey to me at this point. One good thing is a callback to a martial problem between Eve and Roarke (Innocent in Death #24) and I liked that Robb included that. Too often serial books just gloss over things that have happened before and act like problems the couple have endured can just be swept under the rug.

The setting of Eve and Roarke's home and Eve's office at the precinct are utilized a lot more in this one.

The ending was satisfying though I noticed the epilogue felt a bit short to me. I think I was waiting for something else to happen and then the end just comes. ( )

The death of prominent businessman Thomas Anders in his Park Avenue apartment puts New York Police and Security department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas on the trail of a killer with an air-tight alibi. Eve knows who’s responsible, but knowing and proving are two very different things. Will Eve find the proof she needs to bring the businessman’s killer to justice?

In this, the twenty-sixth outing for the “In Death” gang, astute readers will have identified the major plotline from the title of the book itself, but half of the fun in these entertaining tales is in watching Eve go after . . . and snare . . . her suspect. All the expected characters make an appearance, Eve is decidedly more comfortable with Roarke assisting in an investigation, Louise and Charles reach a turning point, and Eve and Roarke have a bit of a go-round about money. And there’s the usual Eve/Peabody banter that keeps readers chuckling.

There’s no sacrificing character interaction and growth for the sake of the mystery or the crime and that interaction continues to be the heart of the narrative. This one works well as a stand-alone; long-time fans of the series will appreciate this addition to the canon.

Highly recommended. ( )

Eve Dallas-Roarke series is a comfort read for me. I love them. This time Eve is on a murder where the man killed does not have the reputation for the way he died. It's also the first time that a movie is used in the series as the inspiration for the plot. I won't say which movie. Read the book.

I love the family that Eve and Roarke have gathered around them. It will now be growing and what is Eve going to do about it. She will be learning new traditions that families use. I cannot wait to see how she handles it. ( )
