by J. D. Robb
Reunion in Death
Berkley, March, 2002.
Paperback, 384 pages.
In her latest case, New York detective Eve Dallas is pit against a smart ex-con named Julianna Dunne. Detective Dallas sent Dunne to prison, but she's out now and up to her old tricks. When wealthy older men start dying from poison, it's clear that Dunne is responsible. And what's worse, she's killing strangers just to get back at Eve for putting her behind bars.
As Eve works to track down and stop Julianna, she will take a very traumatic trip down memory lane, confronting the terrible demons of her own abusive childhood. But she has the help of her devoted and oh-so-sexy husband Roarke, as well as the friends and co-workers who she tries (without much success) to keep at arm's length. This is classic J.D. Robb: it's tough, gritty and full of heart, with an excellent group of secondary characters. A world away from her books written as Nora Roberts, the futuristic In Death series is edgy and raw... and absolutely addictive.
