Description

Lieutenant Eve Dallas must keep the predator from becoming the prey in Vendetta in Death, the newest thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb.
She calls herself Lady Justice. And once she has chosen a man as her target, she turns herself into a tall blonde or a curvaceous redhead, makes herself as alluring and seductive as possible to them. Once they are in her grasp, they are powerless.
The first victim is wealthy businessman Nigel McEnroy. His company's human resources department has already paid out settlements to a couple of his young victims—but they don't know that his crimes go far beyond workplace harassment. Lady Justice knows. And in one shocking night of brutality, she makes him pay a much steeper price.
Now Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are combing through the evidence of McEnroy's secret life. His compulsive need to record his misdeeds provides them with a wide range of suspects, but the true identity of Lady Justice remains elusive. It's a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy's widow, who reacts to the investigation with fury, denial, and threats. Meanwhile, Lady Justice's criminal crusade is escalating rapidly, and if Eve can't stop this vigilante, there's no telling how much blood may be spilled...

        Lt. Eve Dallas's 49th case pits her against the vigilante who's determined to improve April 2061 over previous springs by declaring open season on men who behave badly. Executive headhunter Nigel B. McEnroy is so "scrupulous, exacting, ethical, and diligent" in running Perfect Placement that you'd never suspect what a pig he was to the women he drugged, raped, shamed, and degraded--unless you were his lawyer, his top lieutenant, or one of those many, many women. So it's only fitting that an avenger would treat him to a taste of his own medicine, slipping him a drug, bundling him into a car, chaining him up in a secure location, torturing, castrating, and killing him before marking the scene with some self-righteous doggerel signed Lady Justice. The same blow-by-blow treatment awaits Thaddeus Pettigrew, the longtime patron of the high-end escort service Discretion, who cheated his wife out of most of the business she'd built, divorced her, and shacked up with his mistress. Even without the catch-me-if-you-can signature, it would be obvious to Eve (Connections in Death, 2019, etc.) and her partner, Detective Delia Peabody, that the two murders are the work of a single hand and equally obvious that there are likely to be more. But where to look for Lady Justice in a world in which every woman who knew about the victims' sins would have cheered their passing? Ex-wife Darla Pettigrew's links to the activist/social work circle Women For Women seems to promise a smaller roster of more likely suspects. Now if only the WFW founder, licensed therapist Natalia Zula, hadn't insisted on confidentiality for all its participants and restricted her own notes to using first names, none of which happen to be Lady. A rousing futuristic hunt for a serial killer of victims no one will mourn.

        A scorned woman calling herself Lady Justice goes on a killing spree in bestseller Robb’s fast-paced 49th thriller featuring Lt. Eve Dallas (after Connections in Death). On Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the mutilated body of a man is found outside his apartment building. Tacked to his corpse is a cryptic poem signed Lady Justice. Eve’s instincts tell her this isn’t an isolated incident, and when the body of another mutilated man is discovered the next day with a similar poem attached, she realizes time is critical. The day after that, Lady Justice claims a third victim. Eve searches for a link among the murdered men, assisted by her police partner Det. Delia Peabody, and her husband, Roarke, a brilliant tech-savvy entrepreneur. When Eve discovers the common link is a women’s support group, she must set a careful trap for this cunning, methodical vigilante before the woman can murder a fourth man. The romantic banter between Eve and Roarke adds some welcome relief from the grim crimes. Robb enthusiasts will be well satisfied. 750,000 announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House.

        Killing someone?no matter how much he might deserve it?isn't justice; it's revenge. At least this is NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas' take on the situation when Nigel B. McEnroy's badly bruised, battered, and castrated body is found outside his New York City apartment building. A poem written by the avenger, who calls herself Lady Justice, and left beside the body enumerates all of McEnroy's crimes against women, but that doesn't matter one bit to Eve, because as far as she is concerned, murder is murder. As more victims of Lady Justice's brand of revenge begin turning up, Eve finds herself marshaling all her resources, inside the department as well as outside, to put a stop to someone who has appointed herself judge, jury, and executioner. With the forty-ninth tautly constructed, fast-paced entry in Robb's long-running In Death series, the author (aka Nora Roberts) continues to find new and innovative ways of keeping readers glued to the edges of their seats.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: All the major publicity bells and whistles?including a national one-day laydown of 750,000 copies?will ensure that fans know Eve is back with a new case.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)
