All Charley Howard ever wanted was to be married, have three children and live a peaceful life in the suburbs. But the Fates had other ideas, and her happiness was not part of their plans.

In the six years after her husband's tragic death, successful businesswoman Charley has taken a small neighbourhood Bar and Grill and developed a major regional restaurant, now on the verge of a significant expansion forward. The only thing that stands in her way is PJ McCoy, a small college basketball coach.

Charley plans for her and PJ to share a lust filled weekend together, and find out whether the experience will fulfil her long sought need for renewed physical and emotional intimacy. But neither of them expected love to emerge from the weekend. And neither were they prepared to deal with the potential devastating effect that love would have on their hopes, fears, ambitions and careers. And do the Fates intervene once again and allow Charley to fulfil her deepest needs? Or is the road ahead littered with painful and ultimately insurmountable obstacles.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns in Dark in Death, by J.D. Robb, the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense, and takes on a case of death imitating art...

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

From the author of Echoes in Death, this is the latest of the edgy, phenomenally popular police procedurals that Publishers Weekly calls “inventive, entertaining, and clever.”
