Book Review: ‘Encore In Death: An Eve Dallas Novel’ By J.D. Robb

A Hollywood style party is going on for award-winning actress Eliza Lane, and her husband Brant Fitzhugh, actor and filmmaker. Eliza is about to start work on a revival of a play she did years ago, and Brant is off for six months on a film shoot. During the party, Brant drops dead after drinking a poisoned drink, which was meant for Eliza. Eve Dallas and Peabody are called to the scene and start their investigation. Eve is under a lot of pressure to wrap this up quickly since it’s a high profile case. As they dig, there seems to be a number of suspects, past and present, and they slowly get breaks in the case. When another person is murdered, the case takes a twist, and Eve figures out the killer has been right in front of her all along. A solid Eve Dallas novel, not her best, but fans will not be disappointed either. It has the signature dry humor, and lol moments we come to expect in these novels, and for which I am such a fan. This is the 56th novel in the series, and I can’t wait for 57 and Eve’s reactions to ties, and Peabody’s antics!

You can pick up Encore In Death in stores on Tuesday, February 7th from St. Martin’s Press.
