About this deal

The whole team were soon on site, and so it began - the investigation which would take Eve, Roarke and Peabody deep into the minds of the sick and depraved. Eve gets the money wire information from her assistant, which allows her to track Debra to the West End Hotel in New York, where she has been for two weeks.

Not only was this perfectly executed but the ideas in her stories as well as her characters remain fresh and unique. Eve says she doesn’t know what she’ll do with it yet but whatever she does means that Stone has to find another place to house his business and himself. It looks like Rose and Minerva spent time together in Chicago, including dance classes, before Rose moved to New York at 15 with her mother. Lane can’t think of anybody who wanted to kill either of them (halfway through the interview she realizes since it was her drink that was poisoned, she was probably the intended victim). She says she was better, is better, than Rose and it wasn’t her fault Leah kept taking pills and kept drinking, that she (Eliza) wasn’t even there.And people didn’t just give lip service to the idea that Fitzhugh was a wonderful person – they meant it. All the crap that Dallas discovers when she finally starts digging in the right place showed a pattern that was considerably more interesting and diabolical, but the reason the initial murder happens and brings down the perpetrator’s whole lifelong house of cards was just a bit meh. Lane invited Vera because if she didn’t there would be talk – there would be talk either way, so "take the high road" plus she’s a draw.

Eve tags Nadine to tell her about Bernstein’s murder and drop hints about Eliza adding pills to Leah Rose’s vodka 25 years ago. stars: There was too much slow build in the middle, but once things started moving, I couldn't stop reading.Eve heads for the West End Financial Center, while she instructs Peabody to follow up with the maid service. I was late to the game in reading the “In Death” series … was always putting it off: not even sure why – well, I was sort of sure why. Two hundred guests, along with staff, surrounded the pair, but when Eliza and her on-screen daughter Samantha began to sing, to perform, Brant toasted his wife with her champagne. Roarke tells Eve that Furrier wrote the lyrics to a song they danced to at their wedding, Only One, so they reminisce, leading to them making love to the song playing. The problem, at least for this reader, with Encore in Death is that the motive for the initial murder feels like really weak sauce.

She had invited media to the party to generate buzz for the revival of Upstage, and Sylvie picks up on that – Eliza has decided to go ahead with the production. I enjoyed the way Robb was able to keep me in the dark for most of the novel before revealing the identity of the killer. As always, the interactions between Eve and Roarke are enjoyable and bring a different facet of Eve’s personality to light.He too is a famed actor and about to head off to New Zealand for 6 months to both star in and produce a new movie. The reveal of the killer and motive seriously caught me by surprise and that doesn’t happen often with these cases.

They bring him into Central, blubbering on the elevator, where a cop asks what his problem is, and Eve replies, "Love. Peabody is a huge fan of his and of the holiday romance movies he's known for; she says she can't help watching during the season while she bakes. Encore in Death harken back to some of my favorites in this series meaning I pretty much listened straight through and am likely to listen too again. The other thing that struck me as I was reading is that this the least diverse cast of main characters in any fiction book I have read in ages.She didn’t yet have an understudy for Upstage, saying they would get another name if Lane had been killed. They concur that killing Fitzhugh wouldn’t lead to the kind of publicity that Bernstein would enjoy or profit from.
