Summary: (from goodreads) 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. . . .
I don't know how J.D. Robb does it, but she hypnotizes the reader once you start the first page. Dallas & Roarke, you can never have too much of a good thing. We always wonder how come this series has not become a movie or even a TV series, a point of discussion between my daughter and I, and we are always trying to find that perfect actor or actress that could play Dallas or Roarke.
This time New York is under attack with what seems to be terrorists with a connection to a very dark past, able to maneuver people's actions by using their own fears and kill each other. This connection to the past is so bad that is has even affected the unshakable Summerset, to the point that Dallas has given him a truce. They need to find out if there is a resurgence of the evil history or some copycat is using the same MO to hide their own agenda.
I only have one word to describe the "In Death" series, addictive.
