Lieutenant Eve Dallas is back for another ".. In Death" book. This time she's taking in a play with her husband Roarke when a fake knife is swapped out for a real knife and the lead male character is killed. Everyone on stage and behind the scenes is a suspect as Eve learns what a womanizer the victim was. Everyone seems to have motive but the situation becomes even more serious when the stage organizer is also murdered. The cast believe bad things happen in threes, can Even find the killer before anyone else is murdered?
Despite this book being the tenth (I think) in the series, the chemistry between Roarke and Even doesn't get old, neither does the banter between Eve and her aid Peabody. I'd like to see them bring in Trueheart, the rookie, more in the upcoming books and move a relationship up to the next level. A baby for someone (Eve or Mavis maybe?).
As always, looking forward to the next one.
First Line: "There is always an audience for murder."
