    In the summer of 2059, Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in the New York Police Security Department, believes it's going to be a crime-ridden season. She is assigned to the homicide of Walter Petibone, a wealthy and prosperous elderly man, who was poisoned at his birthday party in his own home. After Eve eliminates all the obvious suspects like the trophy wife, the ex-wife, and the grown children, she finds evidence that the killer was Julianna Dunne.

    Unlike most of Eve's other cases, this time she knows the suspect and managed to have Julianna incarcerated for nine years for killing her three husbands. The serial spouse murderer is determined to make Eve pay now that she's free. Julianna stays one step ahead of Eve's pursuit, just waiting for the right moment to take her ultimate revenge. She intends to kill Eve's beloved husband Roarke.

    Unlike all of the other books in J.D. Robb's “Death” series, the police investigation in REUNION IN DEATH is up close and personal for the heroine. This makes her step out of character and lose her objectivity that places her in deadly situations on more than one occasion. Though the villain is so obsessed with revenge that seems unreal at times, J.D. Robb shows the character's flaws and frailties of her heroine, which make the tale and Julianna more believable. Fans will not be disappointed with this latest entry.
