This time around, Eve Dallas catches a case that has her professional life merging with her personal one.

When her friend Mavis is accused of murdering the former lover of her boyfriend, Dallas finds it difficult to gain enough facts to exonerate her -- especially since all of the evidence is pointing directly towards Mavis. Leonardo, Mavis' new love, has been hired to create Eve's wedding gown, but things turn ugly when Pandora, a high-class, world-renowned model and his former lover, turns up dead in his studio.

As Eve works to clear Mavis, things get worse when more people associated with Pandora start dying, and at the center is a new drug called Immortality.

This is another winner in the "...IN DEATH" series, and you'll do well to pick up a copy -- and read the series from the beginning!

I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex. The first 3 stories are my favorites.

#3 of the Nora Roberts/JD Robb "In Death" series

The fountain of youth turns deady...top models will stop at nothing to further their careers, and to kill off the competition to get what they want. A good fast read. For an "In Death" novel though, I thought this one was a bit flawed, as from nearly the beginning, its pretty obvious who the major players are and that they're all lying to our heroine to protect their own interests.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think Peabody, Dallas' assistant and eventual partner, makes her first appearance in this book as well.

This is Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb. The Death novels are set in the future. Eve is a cop, and has to find out who really killed the fashion model when her friend is accused. This is a great read!

She was one of the most sought after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted - even another woman's man. And now she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas put her life on the line to take the case when suspicion fell on her best friend, the other woman in the fatal love triangle. Beneath the facade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming obsession for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs could be found to fulfill any desire - for a price.

As Lt. Eve Dallas is preparing for her wedding to millionaire Roarke, her best friend, Mavis, is accused of murder. The victim is Pandora, a professional model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted...including Mavis' current boyfriend. Eve works feverishly to clear Mavis of the charges and find out who really killed Pandora.

Another great Eve Dallas Mystery! This series just gets better and better. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

I am new to J.D. Robb. I really like this series, because even though it is set in the future, it is not too far fetched.
A model is murdered and Lt Eve Dallas delves into the fashion world to find the killer when her best friend is one of the suspects.

I rate this book 5 stars! This is yet another riviting murder mystery by J.D.Robb. This "death series" continues with the lives of Eve Dallas, New York City Cop in 2059, her Irish husband Roarke, her Aide, Peabody and a revolving cast of charachters who are always involved in solving the latest murder. You could read any of them out of order, but if you chose to read them all in order as I have been doing Robb gives references to the previous murders, and characters in the series. I find this book as well as all of the others in this suspensefilled series to make the reader want to escape to continue the story again and again! I would recommend this book to any romance/murder mystery reader. Enjoy!

If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.

I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.

Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):

1 Naked
2 Glory
3 Immortal
4 Rapture
5 Ceremony
6 Vengence
7 Holiday

Another Great IN Death Book From the Queen!
reviewed Immortal in Death (In Death, Bk 3) on
In the 3rd of the Eve Dallas series, Eve shopping for a wedding dress to wear to marry the billionaire Roarke. A supermodel is murdered and Eve's best friend, Mavis, becomes the prime suspect. Also suspect is Mavis's boyfriend, Leonardo, who just happens to be the designer of her wedding dress. While investigating the murder and digging up the dirt on the fashion world, Dallas discovers that the model (and most of the suspects) are either consuming or dealing a new and illegal youth serum.

It's hard to guess the murderer is in this book, but you'll want to keep reading to find out "who done it". Great and fast read.

In this Lt Dallas book, she finally marries Roark. Of course it is bucking and fighting all the way to the altar, with murder and mayhem mixed in. Lives up to the series expectations in my opinion.

I've read all of the J.D. Robb In Death series and the only regret I had after reading them in chronological order was that when I became current, I had to wait until the next book was written. I enjoy her characters and her writing never bogs me down with too much detail...just the right balance. A good read.

This is the third book of this fantastic series. These early books are especially ALL OF THEM "fun" because Eve Dallas and Roarke are just growing into their relationship before they marry. This one involves the fashion industry...and a wedding dress. Total enjoyable "listen to audio-book" which that super Susan Ericksen reading again!

One learns to really truly enjoy the characters of Eve Dallas and her beau, Roarke, through these 'fun' early books of their relationship.

This, like all of the Robb "death" books I've read, is another hard-to-put-down read.

Library Journal Review:
In the third novel of her acclaimed "Death" series, Robb (the pseudonym for Nora Roberts) once again sets her 21st-century police detective heroine on the trail of a murderer. Set against the background of the youth-obsessed, drug-using fashion industry, this suspenseful tale sweeps from the glitzy to the seamy with all the flair and panache one has come to expect from Robb. Although the romance is not so prominent here, the sexual tension still simmers
