"Calculated in Death" - This Formula Never Gets Old!

Calculated in Death by J.D. Robb (one of many Pseudonyms used by Eleanor Marie Robertson [better known as Nora Roberts of Romance Fiction acclaim]) is the most recent publication in the “In Death” series. After 35 stories in this series one would think the formula should be getting “old.” Amazingly, not so!

New York City homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas takes us through the ins and outs of murder for greed. With the help of her Billionaire husband, her NYPD partner, her friends, and other NYPD officers, the perpetrator(s) are brought to judgement. The backstory of Eve Dallas and that of her husband Roark adds a personal interest level to these well-written and crafted plots.

Her detective partner “Peabody” is a delight – her story as a “Freeager” is illuminated in such a way that Peabody takes your breath away with her “everyman” views on life and death.

Lighter than some, more intense than other mysteries - there is a lot to recommend this series to mystery/suspense readers.

Nora Roberts is a prolific author who has been writing for over 30 years. Last year she published 5 full-length novels and so far this year has released this title and has another set to come out later on this month…So whether you want romance fiction or mystery fiction – this may be the author for you!

P.S. the Okanagan Regional Library has copies of nearly every book written by this author – stop by today and give one a try!
