Obsession in Death

J.D. Robb. Putnam, $27.95 (416p) ISBN 978-0-399-17087-4

Bestseller Robb reaches a milestone with the 40th entry in her near-future New York City series that debuted in 1995 with Naked in Death. As 2060 nears its end, Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York Police and Security Department, has a lot to celebrate, including a long history of successful cases. But Eve also has a homicidal admirer determined to remove those who disrespect her, starting with attorney Leanore Bastwick. A note at the crime scene is signed, “Your true and loyal friend.” A second murder quickly follows, and Eve gets a warning from shrink Charlotte Mira that the killer will eventually turn on her. A lack of forensic clues has Eve digging deep into her past cases and trying desperately to make sure those close to her are protected from an increasingly angry killer. Robb plays her familiar and popular tune with enough new flourishes to please her legions of fans. [em]Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Feb.) [/em]
