    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people's secrets is silenced. The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening. The mortally wounded woman is Larinda Mars, a self-described "social information reporter," or as most people would call it, a professional gossip. As it turns out, she was keeping the most shocking stories quiet, for profitable use in her side business as a blackmailer. Setting her sights on rich, prominent marks, she'd find out what they most wanted to keep hidden and then bleed them dry. Now someone's done the same to her, literally--with a knife to the brachial artery. Eve didn't like Larinda Mars. But she likes murder even less. To find justice for this victim, she'll have to plunge into the dirty little secrets of all the people Larinda Mars victimized herself. But along the way, she may be exposed to some information she really didn't want to know..."-- Provided by publisher.

Someone finally found a permanent way to silence gossip reporter Larinda Mars: they murdered her. Unfortunately, Larinda's killer didn't realize that NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas was at the same upscale wine bar in which Larinda whispered her last salacious secret. Larinda might have liked to style herself a "social information reporter," but Eve quickly discovers she was nothing but a mercenary gossip who had been blackmailing an A-list of New York's movers and shakers. Now, with the help of her professional crew and her husband, Roarke, Eve must sift through her list of suspects to find out which one of them finally got tired of paying Larinda hush money. It is no secret that Robb's Eve Dallas series continues to be one of the most popular brands in crime fiction. Add that to this installment's perfectly executed plot, snappy pacing, and judicious sprinkling of dry humor, and you have a particularly enjoyable treat for loyal fans and curious new readers alike.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an initial run of 750,000 copies and copious publicity, Robb's new Eve Dallas title will be heavily requested.

PW Reviews 2017 July #1

At the start of bestseller Robb's entertaining 45th novel set in a near-future New York City (after Echoes in Death), homicide cop Eve Dallas is having a drink at Du Vin, a lower Manhattan bar owned by her entrepreneur husband, Roarke, when gossip reporter Larinda Mars staggers in her direction. Eve catches the woman, whose right sleeve is soaked in blood, as she collapses, but despite almost immediate medical help, Mars dies. The subsequent police interviews with staff and patrons reveal only that the killer, probably male, exited the bar right after slicing Mars's brachial artery. Eve soon discovers that Mars was heavily into blackmail; the list of potential suspects includes everyone from Mets star third baseman Wylee Stamford to talk show queen Annie Knight. Robb fleshes out the main action with such tantalizing puzzles as the reason for Mars's extensive plastic surgery and the location of the hidey-hole she must have kept. Robb continues to impress with her ability to make the same murder mystery formula fresh. 750,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.)
