Review: Strangers In Death by J. D. Robb

Strangers in Death (In Death, #26)In 2060 New York, some murders still get more attention than others, especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed—and strangled with cords of black velvet. Fortunately, homicide cop Lieutenant Eve Dallas's billionaire husband, Roarke, happens to own the prime real estate where Thomas Anders's sporting-goods firm is headquartered, giving her some help with access. Before long, she's knocking on doors—and barging through them—to look for the answers she needs.

But some things don't add up—and everyone's alibi checks out, from the wife who was off in the tropics to the nephew who stood to inherit millions. Was this a crime of passion—or a carefully planned execution? It's up to Dallas to solve this sensational case in which those who seem to be intimates sometimes guard secrets from each other—and strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways. . . .

My Thoughts:

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the 26th book in the series. It has been a few years since I read the last book and once I picked this one up I remembered all the characters in it and their personalities. This is set in 2060 , NY city. A very wealthy man is found dead in his apartment. Strangled with ropes and all kinds of sex devices. The first suspect ,of course, is the wife , who has an alibi. Anders is the man murdered and he owns a sporting good firm. They help children go to camps and get sporting equipment. While his wife meets and greets the mothers of these children. After much investigating things just aren't as rosy as they seem. I have always loved the dynamics between Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her multi billionaire husband Roarke. Their past and who they are today. Eve can be quite a tough bitch but can help a stranger in return. I will continue to keep reading because I am invested in these characters and have missed them so much.
