Obsession in Death - J D Robb
A crisp winter morning in New York. In a luxury apartment, the body of a woman lies stretched out on a huge bed. On the wall above, the killer has left a message in bold black ink: FOR LIEUTENANT EVE DALLAS, WITH GREAT ADMIRATION AND UNDERSTANDING. Eve Dallas is used to unwanted attention. Famous for her high-profile cases and her marriage to billionaire businessman Roarke, she has learned to deal with intense public scrutiny and media gossip. But now Eve has become the object of a singular and deadly obsession. She has an 'admirer', who just can't stop thinking about her. Who is convinced they have a special bond. Who is planning to kill for her - again and again...With time against her, Eve is forced to play a delicate - and dangerous - psychological dance. Because the killer is desperate for something Eve can never provide - approval. And once that becomes clear, Eve knows her own life will be at risk - along with those she cares about the most.
I have never picked up or read a J DRobb book before this one and was surprised to find this is the fortieth book in the In Death novel series and also that it is written by Nora Roberts.
I am a big fan of crime novels and I am really glad that I have found another fantastic crime author who has a huge back catalogue to devour! Obsession in Death was a fantastic read, which offers more than just a basic crime to solve. The novel is a cleverly written story with many individual storylines intertwining to create a great book which will keep the reader's attention from the moment they pick up the book.
I would recommend this book to crime fans everywhere and I will definitely be looking out the previous thirty nine books to catch up on the series.
Thank you to the publishers for sending me a review copy in return for am honest review
