Echoes in Death: Chapter 1 by J.D. Robb
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?

Echoes in Death
After Roarke and Eve attend a fancy dress party, they are on their way home when they encounter a woman wandering around the streets alone. She is disoriented, bloody and bruised. It takes Eve. It takes Eve only seconds to determine that she was beaten and raped and Roarke requires no prompt to call it in. They soon discover that she may not be alone, that there might be someone else she was with who might be in trouble. As Eve digs deeper, she is discovering more and more about this couple. I love the way Robb approaches each story.
Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, driving home from a charity ball when a naked, bloody, and dazed young woman suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. The chilling tale is aimed at both fans of Robb a pseudonym for best-selling author Nora Roberts and newcomers to the series. Everything around her seemed blurred, faded, and unimportant. If so, death was the same as life. What difference did it make, really? Could death be a kind of freedom?
