Police lieutenant Eve Dallas encounters one of her most difficult
cases in Imitation in Death. With the very first victim, Eve
realises that the killer stalking the streets of New York
City isn't a run-of-the-mill serial murderer. The copycat
executions are imitating the methods and victim choices of
an ominous list of notorious serial killers, beginning with
Jack the Ripper. And when the killer leaves a distinctive
note at the crime scene, it's clear that he's targeting Eve
personally--a fact that worries Roarke, Eve's shrewd husband.
Assisted by her aide, Peabody, Eve compiles a list of suspects
that includes several high-profile possibilities. Their very
prominence, however, complicates the investigation, for they
have the power and influence to make the search difficult.
All of the suspects are reluctant to cooperate but one of
them is playing with Eve like a cat with a mouse by tempting
her with crime scene notes and challenging her to find him.
Can Eve stop him before he slaughters again? Or will his next
victim be Eve herself?

Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and
now a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises-until she
was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned
artist Blair Bissel, and her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve
Dallas believes there was more to the killing than jealous
rage-all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted.
To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat.
He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract
to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists.
But this deadly new breed of hackers isn't afraid to kill
to protect their secret-and it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas
to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole
A brand-new novel in the number-one New York Times-bestselling
In Death series set in 2059 New York City. As technology and
humanity collide, Detective Eve Dallas searches the darkest
corners of Manhattan for an elusive killer with a passion
for collecting souls...
one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant
Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park-and into a hellish new
investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above
the still, dark water of the lake. Around her neck is a single
red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is
the eyes-removed with such precision, as if done with the
careful hands of a surgeon-that have Dallas most alarmed.
more bodies turn up, each with the same defining scars, Eve
is frantic for answers. Against her instincts, she accepts
help from a psychic who offers one vision after another-each
with shockingly accurate details of the murders. And when
partner and friend Peabody is badly injured after escaping
an attack, the stakes are raised. Are the eyes a symbol? A
twisted religious ritual? A souvenir? With help from her husband,
Roarke, Dallas must uncover the killer's motivation before
another vision becomes another nightmare. . . .
The newest in the number-one New York Times-bestselling In
Death series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke. Nora
Roberts writing as J. D. Robb returns to the New York City
of 2059-where Dallas will struggle to solve the murder of
a seemingly ordinary family and to protect one small, terrified
survivor. The members of the Swisher family were murdered
in their beds with brutal, military precision. The state-of-the-art
security was breached, and the killers used night-vision equipment
to find their way through the cozy, middle-class house. Clearly,
Dallas is dealing with pros. It seems the only mistake they
made was to overlook the nine-year-old girl cowering in the
darkened kitchen. Now Nixie Swisher is an orphan-and the sole
eyewitness to a seemingly inexplicable crime. Kids are not
Dallas's strong suit. But Nixie needs a safe place to stay,
and Dallas needs to solve this case. With her partner, Peabody,
back on the job-and her husband, Roarke, providing the kind
of help that only he can give-Lieutenant Eve Dallas is running
after shadows, and dead-set on finding out who's behind them.
Set in 2059 in New York City, the number-one bestselling In
Death series has given fans a searing glimpse into near-future
law and order. Now, as scientists work to expand the limits
of technology, Detective Eve Dallas tracks the cunning, cold-blooded
killer of a father and son. A pioneer of modern reconstructive
and cosmetic surgery, Dr. Wilfred B. Icove, is found dead
in his office-murdered in a chillingly efficient manner: one
swift stab to the heart. Struck by the immaculate condition
of the crime scene, Dallas suspects a professional killing.
Security disks show a stunningly beautiful woman calmly entering
and leaving the building-the good doctor's final appointment.
Known as "Dr. Perfect," the saintly Icove devoted
his life to his family and his work. His record is clean.
Too clean for Dallas. She knows he was hiding something and
suspects that his son-and successor-knows what it is. Then,
like father, like son, the young Dr. Icove is killed . . .
with the same deadly precision. But who is the mystery woman-and
what was her relationship with the good doctors? While her
husband, Roarke, works behind the scenes, Dallas follows her
darkest instincts into the Icoves' pasts. What she discovers
are men driven to create perfection-playing fast and loose
with the laws of nature, the limits of science, and the morals
