Book Description

7 July 2011 In Death (Book 8)

Eve Dallas must stray into the bowels of New York City when she is called to a street sleeper's homicide. All expectations go out the window when she discovers a laser-perfect hole where his heart used to be - the work of a highly skilled surgeon.

Research reveals that similar deaths have been occurring across America and Europe, but all her efforts to work out why are confused by the fact that the organs are always faulty. As she digs further and the medical community shuts against her, Eve's problems become much worse as an internal investigation leaves her suspended from action and fighting to retain her fragile sense of identity. Eve and those loyal to her must go to even greater lengths as they get closer to the mastermind killer and the stakes are raised.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT THRILLER and GREAT CHARACTERS! 17 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Robb is a master conspiracy-action-thriller author and weaves a masterful story around Eve Dallas in the near future. It is the author's best work to date in my opinion. I read at least two books a week as I'm a retired teacher, and compare the full rich page turning, in-depth characters to a book I read a few months back, the soon to be a major movie, 'Alien Rapture' by Brad Steiger. I suggest you buy all the books in Robb's series, even though this is the masterpiece. A best buy...

5.0 out of 5 stars The series continues to get better and better! 23 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this latest installment of the saga of Lt. Eve Dallas, a homicide detective, is confronted by a series of baffling murders -- someone is killing the "dregs of society," the homeless, prostitutes: people who the killer or killers think won't be missed. In each case, the bodies are found missing vital internal organs. The case is further complicated by a cop named Bowers who has an intense and irrational hatred for her. This book continues to reveal pieces of Eve's past. I hope that in subsequent installments we'll find out about her family. One immensely satisfying part of the story is Eve's relationship with her husband, the gorgeous, enigmatic, and passionate billionaire she first suspected of murder. I love the role reversal in their marriage, and how their love not only smooths down her rougher edges, but transforms him. I'm was grateful to see the redesigned cover. It's less exploitive and more interesting. However, the author and her readers are not well-served by sloppy proofreading. This is an ongoing problem which I hope the publisher will take steps to correct. New readers: please read the books in order from beginning to the current ones. You will be DELIGHTED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE her books 17 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading this last night and I fall more in-love with the characters with each book. I wish there was a Roarke out there for each of us! When is her next book, Loyalty in Death coming out? I'm already anticipating it. It would be fun to see Eve seriously contemplate motherhood and perhaps see more of her past lovers. We see a lot of Roarke's but where are Eve's? It would be even more fun to see him get jealous--perhaps just once--as we've seen in Eve. I just love this series. J.D.Robb has become my favorite author and I own every book in the series and can't wait to add more to the collection!

I stumbled upon the 'Death' series by accident and have been avidly collecting them since. Like many of Nora's readers I eagerly await each new book and keep reading till I finish it.
I found this book 'Conspiracy in Death' a wonderful read and I was impressed that Nora gave us Eve's biggest fear - the loss of herself/badge.
What I would like to see in a future book is Eve 'giving' to Roarke. He is always there for her - I would really love to see something drastic happen to Roarke which resulted in Eve being there for him - maybe not so much as a Detective but as his wife.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great idea for a series..... 7 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been into the "in Death" series since its inception and have enjoyed reading all the books (some more than others). Conspiracy in Death is one of the best of the series. I felt that the last few books had been slowly backsliding, a writer too complacent in her writing, too caught up in all her other stories (under other psuedonames). With Consppiracy in Death, we are once again put back on the path of good writing and a good story.
Eve and Roarke are a dynamic couple, with a lot of support from great secondary characters. I suppose that would be my only criticism of this story, not enough time with all our "friends". Though I like having the story focus on Eve and Roarke (with some very steamy scenes) we have so many secondary characters who get put on the back burner that I wish weren't. One very important part of this story is that Eve's friends are there for her when she needs them, yet not too much time is actually spent with these characters. If you hadn't read her previous stories you would be completely lost. That is why I only gave this 4 stars and not five. She also introduces a new character (a rookie cop) who I liked, but never really saw again after the first few scenes. And Peabody...are we ever going to see her with someone (besides her current LC boyfriend)???

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story, plot, characters, and ending! 3 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The only author's I've read that had better action, suspence, and plot development in the last year was Connelly's 'The Poet' and Steiger's 'Alien Rapture.' In fact the great character development and thrilling action reminded me of Steiger's work and the police procedure reminded me of Connelly's work. Highly recommended reading.

Certainly on of the best of the Eve Dallas mysteries, though not for a newcomer to the series. Characters were introduced without any detail and numerous references wee made to previous stories. What happened to the wonderfully named Troy Trueheart? He vanished after a few chapters. I agree with other readers that the cover design is an improvement on the naked lady, of the earlier US editions, however that design is better than on the UK editions. They have a woman supposed to be Eve, wearing mini skirts and sun glasses! At least the person who commissioned the US covers gave the impression of having read the book. Finally, whilst the picture of life in the mid twenty first century is believable does Robb really think that there would have been virtually zero inflation between now and 2059. Prices are given either in credits (a good old sci-fi basic) or dollars, at prices and amounts that would be reasonable today!
