Three in Death by J. D. Robb
Three great novellas in the In Death series (7.5,12.5, 22.5)
Interlude in Death
Eve must go to the off planet resort, Olympus to give a speech. She
meets a legendary cop that wants to put Roarke behind bars because
Roarke's father was one of the crooks who got away. When the cop's
bodyguard is murdered, Eve must find the killer before Roarke is
Midnight in Death
One of the serial killers
Dallas has already put away escapes. This killer has a list of who put
him away starting with Judge Wainger who has shown up dead and tortured
in Rockefeller Square and ending with Dallas. Dr. Mira is also on this
list. This is a more personal one.
Haunted in Death
Eve Dallas gets a surprise when she goes to Twelve East Twelfth and
finds a dead body with gunshots wounds and even more surprising is the
over eighty year old skeleton. Ghosts couldn't have killed so, who was
the murderer. A bit of paranormal and some old fashioned detective work
in this short story.
I do not usually enjoy short stories but these were interesting and great to read
First Line: "The Faces of murder were varied and complex."
