Sometimes the missing are not meant to be found…

No one knew much about the woman in apartment 12A. She was a nurse. She kept to herself. She vanished without a trace.

Now troubled teacher Emily has moved in, along with a few dark secrets of her own. Emily’s life is in ruins and she’s supposed to be making a fresh start. But when she learns about the missing nurse, curiosity quickly turns into obsession.

Searching for answers, Emily is drawn across the city towards a hospice for the terminally ill…where she makes a shocking discovery.

Is the missing nurse a victim of a brutal crime? Is something even more unimaginable going on? Or has Emily got it all wrong?

With her sanity called into question and with no one she can trust, Emily must confront her own demons and uncover the horrifying truth—before she becomes the next to disappear.

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...
