but it's still a great read! Dallas & Roarke attend a dinner party for the cast of the new film, based on Dallas' solving of the Icove case, the book having been written by Nadine Furst. During the showing of the 'gag reel', a woman is found drowned in the rooftop pool. Was it an accident or murder? Dallas is once more on the case, with Peabody at her side, and soon finds out that she on the trail of a deadly foe... Im not giving the game away, buy it! Great characters, a runaway plot and the tension builds nicely, page after page. All the old favourites are there, and it's unputdownable. JDR or as she is better known, Nora Roberts, has done it again! Classic stuff!

I am incredibly biased, as I have stated previously, as I LOVE these books... This is a quieter installment than others: as stated by other reviewers, there are no car chases, near death experiences (death experiences by those that die obviously, but not for Eve), no running down muggers, etc.

BUT this is a great character catch-up piece, a bit like Memory in Death (In Death Series). All of the secondary characters are there and you get time to catch up on how each of them are doing, which is great as usually the books are so action-packed you hardly see any of them (New York To Dallas a case in point!) and then other reviewers complain that they don't see Mavis or Nadine as much as they want to! Poor JDR can't win! However, this reader wins every time a new book comes out, no matter what JDR has in store for us!

This book is slower-paced but there are still interesting twists and turns.

If you are a long-time follower of the series, it is a delicious reward to sink into this world in a frankly much nicer environment to the stench that we're usually in and to actually remember all of the different characters and how far they've come on this journey that JDR is weaving for us.

If you are a newcomer, I do believe that this book will make you want to read at least Origin in Death (In Death Series) which is what the film in "Celebrity in Death" is based.

I too am a great fan of the "In Death Series" and also of Nora Roberts' many other books but I feel a little bit let down by this particular book. Perhaps I am always expecting too much of Ms Roberts but this book was very slow and I considered it did not warm up until at least two thirds of the way through.

The switching from surnames to christian names of the acting characters were, at times, quite confusing and I also admit to missing some of the characters which are normally included in her books, and especially missed the interactions between Eve and Summerset and the commaraderie within the NYPSD HQ.

Although it was a reasonable read, on the whole, I was quite disappointed with this book - hopefully better next time with "Delusion in Death" later this year.

How do you follow all the dramatic events in New York to Dallas, quite easily if your JD Robb, this book has got to be one of the best in the series, the plot very complex, an actor working on the movie "the icove project" is murdered, while at a party with Eve, Roarke, Peabody etc. The murdered actress was playing Peabody in the movie, as the film is based on a true crime book written by Nadine Cross based on an earler case which Eve and Peabody worked "origin in death" so also present at the party are "fake" Eve, Roarke etc. All this gives plenty of scope for some much needed light relief, after the truly dramatic events in the last book everything is so much more relaxed in this offering and it makes for an excellent read. Yes somebodys been murdered, but for the regular cast of characters this almost seems like a working holiday, everybodys happy and are enjoying themselves, i could not put it down, there are some hilarious puns and fun to be had avoiding confusion between "real" and "fake" characters, a book about a film based on a book about a crime which is itself a work of fiction, pure genius, it sounds like it shoudn't work, that it could turn out cheesy,but i actually found myself forgetting these people are works of fiction, and i don't think you can say more than that.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. J. Roberts TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 8 Mar 2012
Format: Hardcover
First Sentence: With frustration, and some regret, she studied murder.

Lt. Eve Dallas couldn't do anything about one of her past cases gaining national attention with a book having been written about it. Now it's being turned into a film and its strange having others play her and those close to her on sets eerily similar to her reality. The worlds of make-believe and reality collide when the murder of an actress portraying Dallas' second, Peabody, occurs at a party.

The J.D. Robb books are one of my slightly guilty pleasures but there's really no reason to feel that way. J.D. Robb is, in fact, mega-bestseller Nora Roberts and she didn't achieve her success by writing poorly.

Robb creates great characters with whom we become involved and invested--they, and their inter-relationships, become almost real to us. And yes, there's sex; a natural part of a married relationship. One of the best parts of her characters is that they have grown and changed through the series. What's remarkable is to think that, in the span of 34 books, the series has only progress about two years in character time; a subtle touch that both keeps the characters form again and adds realism as no policeman only has one major case per year.

Robb writes delightful dialogue with humor, edge and occasionally insight. Her books are set in the near future with just enough sci-fi to be interesting, but real time is catching up to invented time. Don't mistake her books for fluff, however. There is plenty of grit to them, and the hard unpleasant realities of a murder investigation. The plot is complex enough to keep any mystery fan guessing. When I can't identify the killer, I'm a happy reader, indeed.
