One of Irish billionaire Roarke's employees, Reva Ewing, is found standing over the naked, murdered bodies of her husband and best friend. The evidence makes it look like a crime of passion, but Reva and her mother maintain her innocence. Because Reva's mom just happens to be Roarke's trusted personal assistant, he asks his wife, Lt. Eve Dallas, to check the scene personally.

As Eve and new partner Peabody get
to work, they quickly realize that what looks like an open-and-shut case is
anything but. The techno-terrorist
organization the Doomsday Group
may be involved here.

Since Reva is working on a government project for one of Roarke's
companies, her research could be
a prime target. To complicate the situation further, it appears that a shadowy
government agency is also involved. Determined to help his employees and
his wife, Roarke starts his own investigation. What he uncovers could shake Eve
to her very foundation.

Robb's awesome series is making the jump to hardcover, and this is a doozy of a book with which to make the leap. DIVIDED IN DEATH has all the elements that make the whole Eve Dallas series so riveting: excellent and evolving characterizations, fascinating premises and emotional resonance. (Feb., 368 pp., $23.95)
