Was she dead?

She felt like a ghost, untethered and insubstantial.
Friday 56: 
"Where'd you get that?"

"I just popped off to the cake factory." He set the dessert plates down on her command center. "Your AutoChef, Lieutenant."

"I had chocolate cake?" She took a bite, made a sound not dissimilar from one she'd made during sex. "I had really amazing chocolate cake?"
This week I am reading Echoes in Death by J. D. Robb. This is the 44th book in the In Death series and I have loved all of them. Here is the description from Amazon:
Echoes in Death, the chilling new suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb is the perfect entry point into the compelling In Death police procedural series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman―dazed, naked, and bloody―suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”...

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?


  1. Sounds good. I haven't read this author before.

  2. Such a fascinating series...I've only read the first three, but I must read more.

    Here's mine: “RIGHT BEHIND YOU”

  3. I am 14 on the reserve list at my library. Reading the excerpts make me wish I was higher up on the waiting list. Oh well. Patience is suppose to be a virtue.

  4. I've got several of Robb's books on my TBR list, but so far haven't tried any of them. This series sounds great, but I should probably start at the beginning (although that would be totally out of character for me). Hope you love it. Thanks for sharing!

  5. This one sounds okay. I haven't heard of this author before so thanks for mentioning the book. :-)

  6. I love Nora Roberts but haven't read any of her JD Robb books though I want too. I've heard it's better to start at the beginning but there are so many it's a little intimidating!

  7. Not my kind of read, but glad you're enjoying the series.

  8. One of these days I'll try JD Robb! :)

  9. I'm in the ranks of having never read Robb. But I always hear great things about them.

  10. I love a new series. This sounds lovely. Thanks for sharing.
