Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on SALVATION IN DEATH
Nora Roberts inhabits her J.D. Robb persona in “taut” and “nerve-jangling” suspense (Ridley Pearson). With Salvation in Death, she’s at the top of her game, delivering a heart-stopping thriller. The year is 2060, but even with advanced crime-busting technology, Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas will have a hard time closing in on this cunning killer.
The action begins when the priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips and falls over dead. It doesn’t take long for Eve to confirm what she already suspects: The wine was poisoned. A search of Father Miguel Flores’ sparsely furnished room reveals little except for a carefully hidden religious medal. The autopsy reveals more: faint scars of knife wounds, a removed tattoo and evidence of plastic surgery, suggesting that Father Flores may not have been the man his parishioners had thought.
But as Eve pieces together clues that hint at gang connections and a deeply personal act of revenge, a second murder in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers knocks the whole investigation sideways. And Eve, with the help of her impossibly wealthy husband, Roarke, is left to figure out who committed these unholy acts, and why.
