Eve Dallas is back! Calculated In Death, the 36th book in J. D. Robb's In Death series, brings fans another fun and familiar read. A bitterly cold New York night is made all the colder by the discovery of a woman lying dead outside an empty building. What initially appears to be a mugging gone wrong is soon discovered to be a brutal murder.

The victim, an auditor, is the sister-in-law of a well-known judge, and a beloved wife and mother. Eve is sent down an accounting rabbit hole as her list of suspects grows. On that list are a number of high-profile powerful people from the high-stakes financial world. With the help of her husband Roarke's financial know how, and her faithful partner Peabody's dependability, the no-nonsense Eve investigates the case, watching the body count climb as she does.

As are all of the books in the series, Calculated In Death is strongly character driven, developing its characters fully right from the get go. What makes this series special, winning it its faithful fan base, is that the characters grow across the full span of the series, so reading the latest instalment feels like catching up with old friends. For readers who have not read previous In Death novels, however, there may be a few holes, as each follow on novel provides little recap. My recommendation? Start at the beginning.

For fans of the series, Calculated In Death will not disappoint. From the first page, this good old-fashioned whodunit murder mystery has the reader guessing. The action, humour, plot twists, and romance combine to make this a page turner.

Nora Roberts published her first In Death novel under the pseudonym J. D. Robb in 1995. Her bestselling novels have reached number one on the charts the world over.

Calculated In Death is available nationwide from March 2013.
