I have read all of the books in this series. Everyone of the books in the "In Death" series has been very good. This book is no different. I like the way J D Robb writes the stories in the future and can almost picture living there. While Dallas is in one of Rourke's clubs, a gossip columnist is stabbed and dies right in front of her. Dallas sets out to find out who killed her, and also finds out that she was a horrible person and was blackmailing a lot of people. Dallas and Detective Peabody have their work set out for them. There is always a bit of humor in her books as well as the suspense of finding out who is the culprit. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next book in this series.
