A retired colleague's suspicious death puts Lt. Eve Dallas on the case in Payback in Death, the electrifying new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author J.D. Robb.

Lt. Eve Dallas is just home from a long overdue vacation when she responds to a call of an unattended death. The victim is Martin Greenleaf, retired Internal Affairs Captain. At first glance, the scene appears to be suicide, but the closer Eve examines the body, the more suspicious she becomes.

An unlocked open window, a loving wife and family, a too-perfect suicide note—Eve's gut says it's a homicide. After all, Greenleaf put a lot of dirty cops away during his forty-seven years in Internal Affairs. It could very well be payback—and she will not rest until the case is closed.

    J D Robb did it again. I own every book and I’ve re read them several times. This book is a classic reason why. I love the perfect combination of mystery and Eve and Roark love story. As Roark would say “ I love this madly!”
  • Phoned it in

    I love these books normally and this was a pleasant read but this one feels like it was written by a formula.
  • Getting stale

    Honestly I’ve loved these books for years but they are starting to become so predictable. Felt like a bunch of unnecessary characters were thrown in just to make it longer but the result was just messy.
  • My guilty pleasure is “In Death” series

    We need more books each year! Please help me live my best life by writing a book a month Ms. Nora Roberts, aka JD Robb.😂 The “In Death” books are amazing. I love all the characters. Each homicide case brings you in but it’s the characters that allow you to see that there is good in this world. AWSOME books! Can not wait for the next one. Having to care for a special needs adult I have few guilty pleasures. The books by Nora Roberts are my best guilty pleasure and escape. THANK YOU for sharing your talent.
  • Awesome!

    Really liked this installment of Eve Dallas. The mystery was well played and the background elements were fun.
  • Worst book in years, couldn’t get past the first few chapters.
