From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, comes a new novel in the futuristic series…Detective Eve Dallas investigates a homicide on familiar grounds: her husband’s hotel—and finds herself up against a murderer with a passion for the finer things in life—and death...
At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown— and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He’s Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn’t help solve the crime. Because there’s someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility—that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke...
Book #27 was Betrayal in Death, the 12th book in J.D. Robb’s In Death series.
These seemed like good travel/sitting-around-my-mother’s-house books. I’m not sure how Robb manages to keep things fresh after 15 books.
