When Eve Dallas is called into a murder scene, she is surprised to learn that her best friend, Mavis, is a suspect in the crime. When Eve has to arrest Mavis for the murder, she vows to save her friend and find the killer no matter what. But it's not so easy for Eve to concentrate on the case when she has to plan her own wedding, tend to her best friend, and deal with the sudden memories of her buried past. Eve is determined to find the true killer and prove Mavis' innocence, and so she goes into overdrive doing just that. Eve turns up a connection to a new illegal drug, which benefits the user with restored youthfulness, but is also highly addictive and fatal.

This is the third book of the long running series and I 19ve really enjoyed them all. It 19s interesting to see how the author envisions future New York and I love the mix of mystery and low level science fiction. I definitely plan to continue the series and hope to read at least a few more this year.

This is the next in the Eve Dallas series. Eve is a police lieutenant in NYC in the year 2058. Her best friend is accused of the brutal slaying of a super model. This series is pretty light weight but interesting. The technology of crime solving and every day life is advanced but the people are pretty much the same. ( )

Okay. So. I'm trying to get into this the way that so many others seem to have gotten into it, but it just has a certain vibe to it. Not a bad vibe, but an AVERAGE vibe. The mysteries aren't anything special. We get similar police procedurals on tv anywhere you look. The romance isn't special. It's wish-fulfillment on a grand scale: a perfect bad rich boy who is absolutely one dimensional in his love for the emotionally damaged police heroine.

We aren't really supposed to ask why. You know. Chemistry, et al.

So what is this book really about? Wedding preparations and saving a friend from a murder rap. And more wedding preparations than saving her friend from a murder rap. And hot sex. And more wedding preparations.

Hmmm okay.

The SF in this is on par with a plopping in a random Star Wars droid and making the MC make a snide comment the way Harrison Ford was likely to do. Other than that, I can't really say this IS SF at all.

I'm not feeling it. I mean, sure, if all I wanted was a lightly decorated HEA among a few dead bodies and easy mysteries, then this is probably right up my alley. But really, it feels like it could be a straight-on cookie cutter from here on out.

Please, someone, tell me I'm wrong and I may continue on. ( )

Jittery bride-to-be Eve, facing the dreaded task of shopping for a wedding dress, meets her best friend Mavis’s new love, fashion designer Leonardo. Shortly thereafter, the brutal murder of a top model puts NYPSD homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas in a difficult position when Mavis becomes the prime suspect in Pandora’s murder. But the trail soon leads to illegal drugs, more deaths, and whispers of the fountain of youth and immortality. Will Eve find the answers she needs to save her friend?

Third in the “In Death” series, readers will find the expected sarcasm, humor, and tireless dedication they’ve come to expect. The unfolding of Eve’s heartbreaking backstory adds tension, and the fashion industry machinations keep the anxiety levels rising. An intriguing mystery combines with the strong sense of place and compelling characters keep the pages turning in this unputdownable tale.

Highly recommended. ( )

As a police lieutenant, Eve Dallas has always been in charge. In this next book in the In Death series, we see that facade that Eve has erected crumble more than a little bit. The circumstances are extenuating for more than one reason. First of all, her wedding to the ultra-sexy Roarke is fast approaching and of all things, Eve has to go shopping! On a far deeper level, this book really delves into Eve's past and we are able to see the tragic things she experienced. However, instead of her horrific experiences destroying her, they made her into the powerful woman that she is.

And Roarke...his love for Eve holds no bounds. Instead, her strength is what makes his love for her so all-consuming. Aaaahhhh. Yeah ...

In this story, right in the middle of the wedding preparations, a viperous woman is killed. The chief subject is none other than Eve's best friend Mavis. As a reminder, in the first book in this series, Naked in Death, when Roarke was the primary suspect, Eve was absolutely confident of his innocence. She is just as certain in this case. There is no way that Mavis is a murderer.

This is only the third book and I have dozens to go. Just as in the first two, this certainly gets 5 Stars from me. There are so many reasons. First of all, there is Eve. She is sharp, beautiful, sarcastic, loyal and is really blossom as she is opening her heart to Roarke. Then there is Roarke. I need a drool bib if I am going to really talk about him. He is gorgeous, strong, his love for Eve knows is just incredible, and it certainly doesn't hurt that he is a billionaire.

For a fast-paced, thrilling story with a great mix of characters and scenarios, definitely pick this book up. The danger never lets up and the angst when it comes to Eve's memories is nothing less than heartbreaking.

As a matter of fact, run to your local library, bookstore, audiobook source or Amazon and dive into this series. If you are anything like me, you will want to keep reading. The next book in the series is Rapture in Death.
