BLURB:   
THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES . . . The chilling new suspense novel from the author of Brotherhood in Death.

After a party in New York, Lieutenant Eve Dallas rides home with her billionaire husband, Roarke, happy to be done with cocktails and small talk.

After another party, not far away, a woman retires to her bedroom with her husband—and walks into a brutal nightmare.

Their paths are about to collide…

When the young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve, still in glittering gown and heels, springs into action. It’s been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it’s far from over.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil” . . .

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked—and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife—this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

Eve wondered, though she was Roarke's first and only spouse, if some considered her a trophy.

J.D. Robb did it again. Each case manages to be as chilling, as unsettling as before. Apprentice in Death was crazy because behind the cold-blooded murders, something simple was the motive. In this book? Sheer craziness is the only reason.

Before starting on the murder(s), let's take a look on the background. It's February 2061, a few days before Valentine's Day. Eve and Roarke has just finished going to a party, something Eve stills despises, because she needs to put on a dress, make-up, and fab shoes. Their marriage is still going strong, and they just redecorated their bedroom and home offices. Fast forward a bit, they're going home (and Roake drives, not like the other billionaires XD) and this woman stumbles in front of their vehicle.

"When I put it together it was too much like looking in a mirror, or hearing too many echoes."

February 2017 New Releases

Hello hello!
We're getting into February. I can't believe we already went through one month. The past couple of months, I didn't get to post New Releases, but seeing that on February we have sooo much great books, I'm going to post something. Well, before life sucks me under again :(



Of course, the books in this list are mostly what I got from newsletter. I might have missed something. As for reading plans, I didn't make any except for Echoes in Death. I learned, probably the hard way, that reading plans couldn't be followed all time.
