When a young woman’s body is found on the shore of the Niagara River, she has the identical purple marks on her wrists and ankles as two other bodies recently discovered in the same area. With summer just around the corner and tourist season soon at its peak, local police detectives Charles Richmond and Sarah Child know they have to find a ruthless killer before he strikes again. Unfortunately, clues are sparse. Charles decides to put his neck on the line and enlist the help of Grace Bardo, the local fortune teller hoping she can provide some insight into the case. But after another girl is kidnapped and killed a month later, the police are no further in their investigation. Meanwhile, Grace and Charles are embroiled in a passionate and unexpected romance, but everything is about to be turned upside down when Charles’s partner, Sarah, suddenly disappears. Grace knows she has to do something. Against her new boyfriend’s wishes, Grace summons the help of two friends and a few colorful locals as she embarks on a dangerous journey to find a serial killer desperate for the taste of blood.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (February 2019)

Lieutenant Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York in Connections in Death, the gritty and gripping new In Death novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb.

Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.


Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.


Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
