It's time for another splendiferous foray into futuristic homicide with Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPD.

For the tough-minded cop who has never before celebrated the holiday season, Christmas poses a variety of problems. How, for example, is she to deal with her husband Roarke's desire for not just one Christmas tree, but a whole houseful? Worse yet, what about the party he wants to give?

Fortunately, there's always her job to provide a welcome distraction from such painful subjects.

This time, murder strikes down a lovely young woman who had found new love through an exclusive dating service. Several homicides later, it is clear to all that a serial killer is on the loose and more than ready to take on anyone who gets in his way, including one of New York's finest.

A master of master storytellers, Ms. Robb hits another home run with this absolutely fabulous new chapter in her fan-favorite Eve Dallas series. (June, 336 pp., $6.99)

Holiday in Death

Submitted by Robin in PA on February 5, 2013 - 8:51pm.

Lt. Eve Dallas is investigating the brutal rape and murder of two woman. The killer is using "The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a theme to his murders. The victims common bond is they were both using the Personally Yours dating service. Eve asks Peabody and McNab to go under cover as patrons of the dating service, while she investigates the owners and tries to stop the killer from striking again.

This is one of my favorite in the series. Not only do we have a great mystery, but we get some funny scenes of Eve doing some Christmas shopping, Roarke wanting to decorate a Christmas tree, and McNab annoying Peabody. My rating: 5 Stars.
