Paperwork could kill.

Nothing, to Eve Dallas's mind, reached the same heights -- or depths -- as paperwork's terminal boredom.

And if the boredom didn't kill you, the frustration would.
Friday 56: 
"She wouldn't be the first to kill to maintain appearances."
This week I am spotlighting Faithless in Death by J. D. Robb. It is the 52nd in this futuristic mystery series. It is a real favorite of mine! Here is the description from Amazon:
In the new Eve Dallas police thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author J. D. Robb, what looked like a lover’s quarrel turned fatal has larger—and more terrifying—motives behind it…

The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Dallas tracks down the wealthy Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don’t add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, comforted by her handsome fiancé as she sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body—but why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things?

As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find that the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within—and soon they’re getting the FBI involved in a case that involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy.


  1. I keep meaning to read more from this series! This one sounds so good, and I love how the author helps us visualize the scenes. Here's mine: “EVERY VOW YOU BREAK”

  2. I need to get back on this series! Happy weekend!

  3. Sounds very exciting! I haven't read any of Robb's books because I'm always worried they are too scary or graphic for me.

  4. It's been ages since I've read this series. I ought to catch up!

  5. Fifty-two seems like an amazing number of books to write, but when you realize that this is a pen name for a even more prolific author, it is astonishing. Plus, the stories don't become stale or thin after so many. I have to pick this up.

  6. I've read this author, not this particular read. Thanks for the review.
