A seductive killer is luring in victims with a promise of the impossible—immortality. Eve Dallas must strip away the fantasy to catch the coldhearted madman.

“Ritual in Death”
Eve is plunged into the violent aftermath of a ritualistic murder—and into the mind of an alleged witness who can’t remember a thing to save his life.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Summer Read Time of Death is a collection of three previously published novellas featuring Lt. Eve Dallas, her sexy husband Roarke and all the rest of the gang at One Police Plaza in New York City. Set in the future, this series is one part police procedural, one part romance (with a little bit of steam) and one part myster thriller. Eve is a homocide detective and of course the cases ususally highlighted in the stories aren't your run of the mill murder. More than likely, the deaths involved are high profile or particularly grisly or even the work of the latest sicko serial killer. In this outing, all the stories involve a common theme of the occult surrounding the deaths of the victims. Fans of J.D. Robb will not find it hard to bend just a little bit more in their suspension of disbelief. "Eternity in Death" opens the book. In the first chapter readers learn that one very wealthy and attractive victim has been promised eternal youth and beauty by just taking a magic potion and waiting for her lover to join her, so she could then "pass" with him awakening an hour later to a life of dancing and partying. Lt. Dallas responds to the crime scene, and aided by vampire-like bites on the victim's neck together with being "bled out" and statements from the maid about her employer's new love of her life, her search narrows quickly to an underground New York Club featuring vampires and the like. "Ritual in Death" finds Eve at a cocktail party with her husband Roarke, when a man staggers into the gathering wearing nothing but smears and smatters of blood and clutching a knife. Fortunately, the hotel belongs to Roarke and he is able to mobilize staff in assisting Eve. She traces the man's journey backward to find in Suite 600 a large living room lit by hundreds of candles lighting a black pentagram on the floor with a body of a badly mutilated woman floating in a pool of blood. The man has no memory of the evening other that it was his first date with the victim. "Missing in Death" is perhaps the most unique of the three plots. A vacationing family is crossing to the Statute of Liberty on the ferry when the mother accompanies her small son to a restroom. Intending to utilize the women's restroom herself, she is initially put off by the closed cones at the door. She enters anyway to be confronted by a man who has killed a woman there and slashed her repeatedly, leaving an inordinate amount of blood. NYPD is called when her family cannot find her on the ferry and when they enter the women's restroom, they find a blood streaked area with no body. An hour later the mother shows up with no recollection of the time from when she left her son at the men's room door. How the murderer and the victim left the ferry in plain view of the passengers is the unique question. As always, the plots are inventive and unusual. In this series, the characters mature more with each passing story and you can tell these offerings definitely are more current in the series. While short stories, each delivers what readers have come to expect from Robb: snappy dialogue and a bit a steam with sexy Roarke. What more could you ask for anything in a summer read? 2011-037
