INNOCENT IN DEATH BY J. D. ROBB - A GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
INNOCENT IN DEATH
BY NORA ROBERTS WRITING AS
J. D. ROBB

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Lieutenant Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher—and uncovers some extraordinary surprises. If this is your first "IN DEATH" series book and you want to catch up to the story "so far", visit J. D. Robb's website HERE to read but I caution you about spoilers. Or perhaps, you'd like to know more about Eve Dallas, the woman behind the badge. If so, go to another part of Robb's website HERE.

From Amazon.com's Editorial Review by Publishers Weekly, INNOCENT IN DEATH is described this way: Once again Lt. Eve Dallas shows why she's "New York City's top murder cop" in Roberts's 24th thriller under her Robb pseudonym set half a century into the future (after 2006's Born in Death). Dallas tries to close a case at the exclusive Sarah Child Academy, where two bright 10-year-old girls discover the body of Craig Foster, a popular history teacher who proves to have been poisoned by ricin-laced cocoa. Dallas wonders if another staff member or a parent might be involved, but after the prime suspect, a promiscuous teacher who's been harassing another employee, turns up dead, the investigation takes a shocking turn. Besides a provocative puzzler, Robb provides an intense relationship update on Dallas and Roarke, her Irish power broker hubby, whose dark past—in the form of a crooked ex-girlfriend—returns to cause trouble. This prolific author, a recent Quills romance winner, is still at the top of her game.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
J.D. Robb is the pseudonym for a number-one New York Times-bestselling author of more than 170 novels, including the futuristic suspense In Death series. There are more than 300 million copies of her books in print.  

With a phenomenal career full of bestsellers, Nora Roberts was ready for a new writing challenge. As her agent put it, like Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and caffeine-free Pepsi, a pseudonym offered her the opportunity to reach a new and different group of readers. The first futuristic suspense J. D. Robb book, Naked in Death, was published in paperback in 1995, and readers were immediately drawn to Eve Dallas, a tough cop with a dark past, and her even more mysterious love interest, Roarke.


The series quickly gained attention, great reviews, and devoted readers. Since the debut of Loyalty in Death (the ninth In Death book) on Halloween 1999 on the New York Times bestseller list, every J. D. Robb title has been a New York Times bestseller. While fans had their suspicions, it wasn’t until the twelfth book in the series, Betrayal in Death (2001), that the publisher fully revealed that J. D. Robb was a pseudonym for bestselling powerhouse Nora Roberts. Unmasked, Nora Roberts fans who hadn’t yet picked up one of the Robb books were quickly playing catch-up.


Robb’s peers in the mystery world are fans as well, with accolades for the In Death series from such blockbuster authors as Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, Dennis Lehane, Kathy Reichs, Lisa Scottoline, Janet Evanovich, David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, Robert B. Parker, Ridley Pearson, Linda Fairstein, and Andrew Gross.


The In Death books are perpetual bestsellers, and frequently share the bestseller list with other Nora Roberts novels. J. D. Robb publishes two hardcover In Death books per year, with the occasional stand-alone original In Death story featured in an anthology.


Thirty books and fifteen years later, there is no end in sight for the ever-popular In Death series.

PRAISE FOR J. D. ROBB'S IN DEATH SERIES:
“It’s Law & Order: SVU—in the future.” —Entertainment Weekly on Born in Death


“Sexy…A perfect balance of suspense, futuristic police procedural and steamy romance.” —Publishers Weekly


“Edgy and Raw.” —Booklist


“There are simply no accolades lavish enough to praise this series justly.”
—The State, Columbia, SC


“A fast-paced, superbly crafted story that is an amazing—and possibly unique—combination of topnotch suspense, futuristic detection, and intensely romantic sensuality.” —Library Journal

I have been a long time Nora Roberts fan but have never tried the books under J.D. Robb. It is interesting that with this pen name she is aiming for a different audience, as I also read that kind of book too. Would love to dip in the J.D. Robb books.

My favorite mysteries are Sherlock Holmes'. I read all of the books and short stories and loved all the Basil Rathbone movies.

'Ceremony in Death' sounds particurly interesting because it causes the main cahracter to question her own system of morals.

Steve Capell said...

I have read 15 of Death Series novels by J.D. Robb A.K.A. Nora Roberts. I finished this week "Reunion in Death" and like her other novels this one is suspenseful, intriguing, and a page turner. Nora does a fantastic job of character development and as you read the novels you gain more and more insight into their lives. I am J.D. Robb fan so I am very interested in your contest. Thanks for the opportuntiy.

I have not read any of this series, but have it on my list of books to try out. I like that the series seems to continually develop its characters instead of just throwing new crimes out there for the same people to solve.

This is probably my most favorite series. I was lucky enough to find it at the point there was about 25 books out. Read the first one and was hooked. I immediately set out collecting the rest and then started reading them in 5 to 6 book batches over the next year. I was in hog heaven. Now, I've gotten caught up, I wait a year for every book. This is one series that I auto order as soon as a release date is mentioned. I wish I'd never read the series but only so I'd have it to look forward to again. Love, love love it. Don't enter me but I just had to say, Awesome, simply awesome series!
