'What would cause someone to want so many people, surely many of them strangers, to slaughter each other?' The scene that greets Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her team one terrible evening in New York is more shocking than any of them have ever witnessed. The usually comfortable downtown bar is strewn with bodies - office workers who have been sliced, bludgeoned or hacked to death with the nearest weapon available. It appears they all turned on each other in a desperate blinding rage. As Eve and her husband Roarke - who owned the bar among his many properties - investigate the big-business workers of the city, they link the attacks back to the Urban Wars and the chemical warfare used all those years ago. With another slaughter imminent, Eve must turn to unexpected sources in order to stop a killer who is getting revenge by creating mass carnage...
Publishers Weekly, 2012-11-26 Robb's latest installment in her popular In Death series starts with a bang and never lets up. In the not so distant future, NYPD homicide detective Eve Dallas is confronted with a horrific crime scene. On a quiet Friday night the patrons and staff at a popular watering hole suddenly and without warning began lashing out at one another in a bizarre frenzy of berserker violence. Lasting only 12 minutes, the violent outbreak leaves 80 people dead. Now it's up to Dallas and her team to find out who is behind the carnage and how to prevent another attack. With dozens of In Death audiobooks to her credit, narrator Susan Ericksen is the voice of Eve Dallas. Ericksen knows Robb's future world and its denizens inside and out-and that familiarity imbues her reading with confidence and clarity. The narrator's characterizations are deftly executed, and the dialogue is presented with a natural delivery. A Putnam hardcover. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Publishers Weekly, 2012-07-23 Set in 2060, the gripping 36th Eve Dallas novel (after Celebrity in Death) from bestseller Robb (the pseudonym of Nora Roberts) opens at On the Rocks, a bar on Manhattan's Lower West Side, where the patrons, mostly "white-collared working stiffs," are enjoying happy hour. Suddenly, everyone in the bar inexplicably turns on each other, and a bloodbath ensues. Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department investigates, even though her husband, Roarke, is the owner of On the Rocks. Eve discovers a possible link to the apocalyptic Red Horse cult, which orchestrated attacks with airborne hallucinogens during the Urban Wars of the early 21st century. While Robb serves up twists and turns in ample portions, the main attraction is still the character of Eve, who will win over readers with her ability to persevere in seeking a killer while coping with her personal demons.
