Review
  • Rendezvous Review: Death series. Wealthy financier Roarke is delighted to treat his wife, lieutenant Eve Dallas, to an opening night at his new theater. The play should delight her as it's a murder mystery. Eve is the first to notice that something is wrong. Then she gets angry when she sees that someone had the gall to plan and execute a real murder in front of hundreds of witnesses, including New York's finest. What her investigation uncovers will shake Eve up enough to question whether anyone will recover from the events surrounding the man's life and death. Fans will rejoice in WITNESS IN DEATH as Ms. Robb delivers the usual murder and mayhem, but this time we get so much more as another layer of the relationship between these complex characters we love and adore is revealed. The love that surrounds Eve and Roarke, readers' favorite couple of both the mystery and romance genres, deepens as we are treated to a refreshing storyline, breathtaking romance, and taut suspense. Readers will anxiously await the next terrific book in this popular series. (Reviewed February 2000 by Darlene Kendall)
  • It is 2059, and New York City homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas's husband, Roarke, is producing a revival of Agatha Christie's thriller Witness for the Prosecution. On opening night, when the villainous character Leonard Vole gets his just deserts, someone substitutes a kitchen knife for the prop knife, and the actor, Richard Draco, is stabbed through the heart. Trouble is, in time-tested British mystery fashion, everyone in the cast had good reason to despise Richard, a misogynist who seduced and discarded beautiful young women, including one whom he knew to be his daughter. It's up to Eve to solve the case, an emotionally difficult task as she is no stranger to incest herself: she was beaten and raped by her father before she managed to escape him. As Eve fights to keep her head above water, she tries to bond at a deeper level with Roarke, so that her future will heal the pain of her past. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) serves up a welcome mix of edgy, sexy lovers,newfangled gadgets, classic whodunit and noir. (Mar.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
