I love this book. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and she is just as good as J. D. Robb. The Eve Dallas series is especially good. This book combines the two works beautifully. I have read it 3 times, and had lost my copy. I had to have it in my collection
Really good book! I got it because I adore the J.D Robb series. I have had it forever and never read it because...I don't know, I guess I thought it would just be a short story and wouldn't really be about the 'In Death' series. But that was not true at all and it was great. The first story was good too and the 'In Death' one just continued from it. Very good.
In this mystery, written by both Nora Roberts and her alter-ego persona, J.D. Robb, stolen diamonds are the background for two inter-related stories. In part one, Nora Roberts spins a tale about millions of dollars of diamonds, the daughter of a thief, the insurance investigator, the con-man father, and the murdering psychopath hunting them all. In part two, fifty-something years have passed and the action switches from the sleepy Maryland town of the first part to New York. Lt. Dallas begins by investigating a murder during a supposed B & E, but quickly realizes that the current crimes are merely backstory to a search for the remaining quarter of the diamonds missing from the original heist.
I love the aspects of Peabody and Dallas trying to figure out their new partnership!
