Brotherhood in Death – J. D. Robb

Schlow Library: J.D. Robb’s Brotherhood in Death is a must-read for fans of the slightly futuristic series starring homicide cop Eve Dallas and her inner circle as we find out new details about many of their lives. Eve’s confidant/police psychiatrist Charlotte Mira and her husband Dennis are brought center stage due to the latter witnessing an assault on his cousin.

Not only does Dallas confirm the feelings we’ve always suspected she has toward the incredibly kind professor, but due to the incredible twists and turns the case takes, she reveals exactly what happened to her as a child in that hotel room so many years before that gave her her name and her passion for standing up for victims.

Fans know that Dallas has a hard exterior for very good reasons, but Robb’s latest book allows her, Roarke, Peabody, and the Miras to convey their tender sides as well, a nice change of pace.

 

The new novel featuring homicide detective Eve Dallas from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Devoted in Death.

Sometimes brotherhood can be another word for conspiracy. . . .

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.

As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.
