Delusion in Death - J.D. Robb Title: Delusion in Death

Series: In Death bk 35

Author: J.D. Robb

Genre: Mystery

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks . . .until something went terribly wrong. And after twelve minutes of chaos and violence, eighty people lay dead.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things—monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics gives its report, the mass delusions make more sense: It appears the
bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive anyone to temporary insanity—if not kill them outright.

But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror—or why. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne. . . .

If there is one series that will consistently suck me in and have me ignoring everything around me until I discover who the murderer is it is J.D. Robb's In Death. From the first page to the last all I can think about is who committed the murder and why.

The method that Eve uses to find the murderers and the why's of it constantly amaze me. From using her husband Roarke, to the team of cops she has around her, and how the work not only as co-workers but also as a family.

One of the things that makes this series so great is the relationship between Eve and Roarke and how they deal with each other. I love how in tune they are with each other and what they need whether they like it or not, and how they will do what ever it takes to make them better.

If you haven't read New York to Dallas, you need to before reading this book as it takes place a couple of weeks after that case, and the revelations about her past Eve has to deal with.

The murder is a very ingenious murder and I have to say that until they murderer was revealed I had no clue who it was or why they did it. It is very much a page turner.
