"In the latest thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas investigates a murder with a mysterious motive-and a terrifying weapon. Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body-and killed him. After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team-and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn't been exposed-it's time to look into Dr. Abner's past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close-though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she's dealing with either a madman-or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims"-- Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Hard to believe that this is #50 in this series. Even harder to believe that the stories remain fresh and the characters compelling, but it does not disappoint. There's a satisfying path to solving the very distressing murders, and particular pleasure in seeing the characters continue to change a... Read More »

This is one of those books I couldn't put down and yet I wanted it to go on forever. The team working together to solve a murder in 2061 was great. With the help of her husband and some specialized equipment that gives time of death, although with security cameras the norm rather than the exception, it still takes good old fashioned detective work to solve this one.

This was another great book in this series and showed a little softer side to Eve and Roarke.

Absolute drivel.
Apparently people are either saints or sociopaths. Nothing in between.
There is no real plot, no real mystery. There are endless descriptions of decor in offices, houses, etc to fill the pages and repetitive interviews that simply paraphrase the same dialog. And nauseating drivel about the side effects of privilege when Eve lives the most privileged life of all!
Life is simply perfect for Eve, a perfect marriage, a perfect partner, perfect friends, a perfect boss, a perfect squad...everyone is now 2 dimensional and heading toward the mathematical challenge of being 1 dimensional!
There is no tension, no drama, no character development, no plot...just nothing.
It is a shame. I keep hoping that the series will go back to its heyday but alas!

This is the 50th (wow!) installment of Nora Robert's amazing In Death series. It's a wonderful read with great Eve/Roarke moments! The scene where they plant their tree together is fantastic. The plot is fast-moving and timely. I did figure out who committed the crime, but being with Eve, Roarke, Peabody, Feeney and the rest of the gang is what really makes these books special. The theme of a character's ability to choose his/her own path is central to this plot. We also get to see a great moment when Peabody is pushed to the limit and of course Eve has her back. J.D. Robb does not disappoint with this fabulous book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I don’t get the bad reviews. I’ve read all the death box and I thought this one was absolutely excellent.

I couldn't finish this one, just too boring. This is the first in the series that I didn't enjoy, maybe it's time for some new characters or a new series.

I've read them all, many more than once, but this one was the first one I didn't finish. It was extremely BORING. Robb really phoned this one in. Same old routine with the husband, Peabody, the cat, all of them. Again, BORING.

I used to love these books, but it seems they are coming out to quickly with bad quality.
I skim over the parts with Roarke in them, really ridiculous telling a grown woman what to wear.
This story has to many meaningless characters and to me it just seemed to drag on.
I did finish it, but her books have really gone downhill.

Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Detective Peabody, get called to solve a case where someone is killing people with poison chemicals. They have their work cut out for them as they investigate the murders. This is a great book from J. D. Robb and I can't wait for the next book in this series.
