Review | Echoes in Death

Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads

Echoes in Death, the chilling new suspense novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb is the perfect entry point into the compelling In Death police procedural series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas..

As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”…

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?

Hott Review of Echoes in Death:

There are always monsters, sometimes they even wear a mask.

Echoes in Death is the creepiest book I’ve read in quite some time. Knowing there is a monster out there preying on the innocent and sweet because he’s a coward is quite the picture. Watching his crimes escalate as the team tries to catch him is captivating.

I couldn’t put Echoes in Death down no matter how crazed the monster became.

I would NOT recommend Echoes in Death to anyone who has trouble reading about rapes or bullies. It’s packed full of both. Though the rape (and steam) scenes are mostly undescriptive there is enough there to give one the picture they may find difficult to forget.
