In bestseller Robb's slick 26th not-so-near-future crime thriller to feature Lt. Eve Dallas (after 2007's Creation in Death), the New York City homicide cop investigates the murder of business tycoon Thomas Anders, whose strangled body is discovered tied to his bed, apparently the victim of a kinky sex encounter gone bad. Aided by her mysterious husband, Roarke, and long-time sidekick Det. Delia Peabody, Eve doggedly questions Anders's widow, Ava, and his nephew, Benedict Forrest, number two at the victim's corporation, Anders Worldwide. Both Ava and Benedict have alibis that put them far from the crime scene at the time of Anders's death. While the guilty party soon becomes obvious and the gimmick used by the culprit clear to anyone familiar with Strangers on a Train, Robb's strong, hard-nosed heroine once again generates the kind of heat that keeps fans turning the pages.

Strangers in Death is the latest in J. D. Robb's popular series. The book opens with Lieutenant Eve Dallas, a homicide detective, at the murder scene of Thomas Anders, a prominent sporting goods businessman. It looks like a kinky sex game gone wrong. The scandal and sensationalism will surely set tongues a-wagging.

Eve slowly untangles the scene as it just doesn't add up. Security tapes are missing and how did the murderer get in and strangle Anders with no struggle? Ava, his wife, is in the Caribbean and his nephew has a rock solid alibi.

Anders on one hand is portrayed as a philanthropist and the other as a sex fiend. No mysterious payments have been made. There are no unexpected phone calls to or from. Who could have murdered him? Will this person finally outsmart Eve?

Eve is a hard ass cop with a heart of gold. She goes out of her way to help a young boy who uncovers a scam. She helps her friends and then turns around and is an absolute bitch in a police interview with a potential suspect.

I have read the first 6 in this series and found no major spoilers to spoil the intervening books. Eve is more comfortable in accepting Roarke's help in investigation and even requests his help. It is always fascinating to read of the technological help Roarke can provide.

Eve and Roarke still have sizzle. They are more 'in sync' with each other but still have a tiff about money. It is interesting to see how Eve has grown in the relationship.

I am amazed at how after 25 books in the series Robb can write a book that is so riveting.
