    • Abstract:
      Summary: She calls herself Lady Justice. And once she has chosen a man as her target, she turns herself into a tall blonde or a curvaceous redhead, makes herself as alluring and seductive as possible to them. Once they are in her grasp, they are powerless. The first victim is wealthy businessman Nigel McEnroy. His company's human resources department has already paid out settlements to a couple of his young victims-but they don't know that his crimes go far beyond workplace harassment. Lady Justice knows. And in one shocking night of brutality, she makes him pay a much steeper price. Now Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, are combing through the evidence of McEnroy's secret life. His compulsive need to record his misdeeds provides them with a wide range of suspects, but the true identity of Lady Justice remains elusive. It's a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy's widow, who reacts to the investigation with fury, denial, and threats. Meanwhile, Lady Justice's criminal crusade is escalating rapidly, and if Eve can't stop this vigilante, there's no telling how much blood may be spilled.

Booklist Reviews 2019 May #1

Killing someone—no matter how much he might deserve it—isn't justice; it's revenge. At least this is NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas' take on the situation when Nigel B. McEnroy's badly bruised, battered, and castrated body is found outside his New York City apartment building. A poem written by the avenger, who calls herself Lady Justice, and left beside the body enumerates all of McEnroy's crimes against women, but that doesn't matter one bit to Eve, because as far as she is concerned, murder is murder. As more victims of Lady Justice's brand of revenge begin turning up, Eve finds herself marshaling all her resources, inside the department as well as outside, to put a stop to someone who has appointed herself judge, jury, and executioner. With the forty-ninth tautly constructed, fast-paced entry in Robb's long-running In Death series, the author (aka Nora Roberts) continues to find new and innovative ways of keeping readers glued to the edges of their seats.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: All the major publicity bells and whistles—including a national one-day laydown of 750,000 copies—will ensure that fans know Eve is back with a new case.

A scorned woman calling herself Lady Justice goes on a killing spree in bestseller Robb's fast-paced 49th thriller featuring Lt. Eve Dallas (after Connections in Death). On Manhattan's Upper West Side, the mutilated body of a man is found outside his apartment building. Tacked to his corpse is a cryptic poem signed Lady Justice. Eve's instincts tell her this isn't an isolated incident, and when the body of another mutilated man is discovered the next day with a similar poem attached, she realizes time is critical. The day after that, Lady Justice claims a third victim. Eve searches for a link among the murdered men, assisted by her police partner Det. Delia Peabody, and her husband, Roarke, a brilliant tech-savvy entrepreneur. When Eve discovers the common link is a women's support group, she must set a careful trap for this cunning, methodical vigilante before the woman can murder a fourth man. The romantic banter between Eve and Roarke adds some welcome relief from the grim crimes. Robb enthusiasts will be well satisfied. 750,000 announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.)
