Two years ago when I was in a reading rut, a friend of mine recommended the In Death series to me. Needless to say I got hooked. Since then I’ve read all 46 books (It’s been around since 1995. I’m just less than a decade older than it.) in the series, and I’m pretty much hyped to get my hands on the next one.
For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter―but what was the motive of the masked men?
Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.
It’s still three months until Leverage in Death is released, but an excerpt of the first chapter is up on Nora Roberts’ (J.D. Robb is just her pseudonym) blog Fall Into The Story. It opens up with a supposed suicide bombing at a meeting full of airline executives. Sounds like another tough case for my fave fictional police detective Lt. Eve Dallas.
Leverage in Death will be out September 4. Add it to your TBR!
