Our favorite cop Eve Dallas is facing one of the biggest criminals in her career in 'Delusion in Death'. 80 ordinary people have killed each other through random acts of violence in a bar owned by her millionaire husband Roarke.
Though Eve initially fears that the attack may have have been targeted at Roarke, her fears prove untrue. A second attack occurs in the same area, with slightly lower fatalities, the only connection between the two sites being the people who frequent the two.
It soon becomes apparent that a deadly virus that causes delusions and drive people to violence is behind the killings. Is it a new terrorist bent on wrecking havoc on New York with his bio hazard or is it a ghost from the ages of the Urban Wards back for his vengeance?
The high-profile nature of the crimes makes it necessary for Eve to partner with an agent from her otherwise-enemy, the HSO. Summerset, Roarke's trusted housekeeper, also provides her valuable help with his knowledge of the Urban Wars and the horrific acts that went on at that time.
Best part of story, including ending:
The 'In Death' series are my favorite and this particular book was yet another example of why I cannot keep them down! The crimes in this book were of a totally different level and showed the perpetrator's utter disregard for murdering several innocent people without any reason. Eve was however brilliant!
Best scene in story:
My favorite scene in this book is when Eve gets the suspect to confess to the crimes out of sheer arrogance. Just shows how brilliant the lady truly is!
Opinion about the main character:
I love Eve's cynical nature and the way she gets irritated when she knows that she has to attend a public function or play host at home.
