Forgotten in Death : An Eve Dallas Novel by J. D. Robb - Series: In Death (#53)


Eve is back again and this time she has three murders to solve...

St. Martin's Press and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 7th.

The first victim is found in a dumpster.  She appears to be homeless, and they have no idea who killed her.  Then, while she's looking that site over, she's summoned to another body.  This one has been dead for years and the fetus she was carrying died, too.  She was buried in a building hidden behind walls.

Eve starts with the first body and sorts through her life.  There's a reason she ran and it eventually shows up in Eve's investigation.

The body that's almost 40 years since death has been shot.  The building belongs to a monied family and they wonder which one killed her.

If that isn't enough, they find a man hanging in his apartment.  Eve went to ask him questions but it's too late.  Then they see that he was hit with a syringe  and someone else hung him.  Who would do that?

With lots of questions, help from her husband and staff, Eve finally interviews her suspects and gets confessions.

This is very busy police procedural where facts, lies and other evidence need to be sorted out.

Eve is always a good read.
