Desperation in Death by J. D. Robb

Desperation in Death is the 55th book in the In Death series. It was published in September 2022 so I’m almost caught up!

A quote from Desperation in Death by JD Robb

Mina Cabot and Dorian Gregg become allies in the Academy. They work together to try to escape. But as they are leaving, Dorian falls and hurts herself. Mina runs to try to divert attention away from Dorian.

Eve Dallas comes to the scene where Mina’s body has been dumped after she was killed. While the Academy tried to make it seem like Dorian had been the one to kill Mina, Eve didn’t buy it. Eve puts everyone on the lookout for Dorian.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Desperation in Death, Dorian ends up with Sebastian (first seen in Concealed in Death), the one who helped Mavis when she was younger. Eve must deal with him to find out what Dorian knows. Before Eve finds Dorian, she discovers how little Dorian was protected by her mom and her case worker. Eve makes sure to take care of them. But what about the Academy?


Desperation In Death is NOT available on Kindle Unlimited (I wish!). This story is #55 of J.D. Robb’s In Death series. We find out about Auntie and her partner about midway through. I bought this one (and got it signed!) because I really like the storyline in this one.
