Thankless in Death

Nora Roberts ( a.k.a. ‘J.D. Robb’ is a prolific writer by any standards. She has over 200 titles to her name(s). It is by the pseudonym that Roberts writes the series of futuristic science fiction police procedurals featuring  NYPSD Detective Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke. There’s certainly a lot of death on Robb’s mind – this 2013 outing is the 37th in the series ‘In Death’. The summary goes as follows. Murder doesn’t stop for Thanksgiving. As the household of NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke prepare for an invasion of family and friends, an ungrateful son decides to stop the nagging of his parents – by ending their lives. Soon Jerald Reinhold is working his way through anyone who has ever thwarted him in his path to an easy life. Eve is increasingly frustrated in her efforts to cover all the potential victims as Jerald stays a terrifying step ahead. As the festivities begin, Eve is desperate to identify which victim on Jerald’s long list will be the next, so she can stop the killing spree…Oh! me, Oh! my. Please get to the bottom of it, Eve, so we can all tuck into our turkey, cranberry sauce and pecan pie.
