Festive in Death
Putnam Adult / September 9, 2014 / $27.95 print / $14.99 digital
Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn’t count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who’d been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler’s enemies, she’s also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband’s upcoming holiday bash.
Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year’s 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.
In her thirty-ninth novel, J.D. Robb once again returns us to New York City as 2060 comes to a close. It is Christmastime in New York, with Drunk Santa singing carols and mooning all the passersby as they do their last minute shopping. Even Lieutenant Eve Dallas is enjoying this holiday season as she and her husband, Roarke, make plans for their annual holiday party. It is an event most look forward to for the drinks, the food and for spending time with friends both old and new.
