Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb.

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

    As with all Nora Robert’s J.D.Robb Death series, this was fast paced, twisted, action packed & too enthralling to put down.
  • Excellent book!

    I have read every one of the Eve Dallas series and I love every one. They are touching and funny and smart. I love all of the characters. Can't wait for the next book. Write faster!

    This book is definitely well worth the read.
  • Scary at best, but optional with a upbeat scare

    I've read every book in the In Death series (at least once) and this is my new favorite! Great read beginning to end!
  • Weak all-around

    By Drake1034
    Can't. Stay. Awake. Poor character development and zero investment in seeing the plot through to the end. I'm half way through and can't tell you the first name of the main character. She's a new author for me but I think I'll look elsewhere for my next book.
  • Eh...

    Now, I'm a diehard Eve and Roark fan... and I buy each of these books the moment they come out. I enjoy reading and rereading them, but this one just didn't make the grade...there seemed to be a bit of redundancy throughout, and not a lot of excitement. Not a whole lot of he usual Eve/ Roark dynamic either. Maybe I will like it better when I read it a second time.
