Thou shalt not kill.

Paul Rogan didn't consider himself a religious man, but that commandment played over and over in his head as she stepped into the lobby. As his wing tips clicked on the polished marble floor, those four words beat inside him.
Friday 56:
A uniform opened the door. "Lieutenant. They're back through the archway to the left."

She could smell the smoke, the blood, the acrid stink of burning -- plaster, wood, flesh.
This week I am spotlighting Leverage in Death by J. D. Robb. This is the 47th book in the In Death series. Here is the description from Amazon:
Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in Leverage in Death, the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from J.D. Robb…

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter—but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.
