J. D. Robb – Golden in Death


In the latest thriller in the number-one New York Times best-selling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas investigates a murder with a mysterious motive – and a terrifying weapon.

Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body – and killed him.

After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team – and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasnt been exposed – its time to look into Dr. Abners past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close – though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless.

While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that shes dealing with either a madman – or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.

sterility baffled

The last few books in the In Death series have been disappointing. Rourke is not as involved in the cases and shows up mainly to get Eve to eat or have sex. Their relationship is what I enjoy most and it hasnt been enough. I hoped for a much better story – there was a good opportunity with the murder weapon. But it was rather boring and the culprits weak. So sad, I love Roarke and Eve but have been very disappointed in the last few books!
