Calculated in Death by J.D. Robb
Published: February 26, 2013
Publisher: Putnam Adult
Summary (courtesy of Goodreads):
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.
A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.
But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. .
Personal Thoughts: I love the In Death series and await for each book anxiously. It says a lot about a series when you pick up a book, finish it and then give a long sigh when you find out the next one in the series is coming out in 6 months to a year. I have read some of the books in the series multiple times just to get my Eve and Roarke fix 🙂 but it is still a long time coming in between each book. Luckily I have other books to enjoy until the next one comes out.
