View our feature on J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas series. The phenomenal series set in a future New York City continues, as Lieutenant Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher-and uncovers some extraordinary surprises.
Once again Lt. Eve Dallas shows why she's "New York City's top murder cop" in Roberts's 24th thriller under her Robb pseudonym set half a century into the future (after 2006's Born in Death). Dallas tries to close a case at the exclusive Sarah Child Academy, where two bright 10-year-old girls discover the body of Craig Foster, a popular history teacher who proves to have been poisoned by ricin-laced cocoa. Dallas wonders if another staff member or a parent might be involved, but after the prime suspect, a promiscuous teacher who's been harassing another employee, turns up dead, the investigation takes a shocking turn. Besides a provocative puzzler, Robb provides an intense relationship update on Dallas and Roarke, her Irish power broker hubby, whose dark past--in the form of a crooked ex-girlfriend--returns to cause trouble. This prolific author, a recent Quills romance winner, is still at the top of her game. (Feb.) Copyright (c) Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

1 . Jealousy rears its ugly green head!
Posted August 21, 2010 by ejaygirl , GreensboroRoarke is clueless and Eve feels threatened when a different kind of former lover comes to town. Magdalena shakes Eve's confidence for the first time in their relationship. Roarke's reactions are interesting and he provides even more revelations about his past. While the murder mystery is interesting as usual, the continued development of the characters and their relationships make this a great read.
