I’ve been slowly rereading the In Death series, intermingled with other books. Witness in Death follows Loyalty in Death. I love this one as it’s related to an Agatha Christie mystery- Witness for the Prosecution.
After learning about the series the first time back in 2001, I promptly read them all. At least, I read all of those books that had been released. But somewhere along the line, I stopped reading the current ones so I have needed to go back and read the series again. That’s why I’m re-reading these.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is a New York City homicide detective in 2059. Witness in Death starts with Eve and Roarke watching a play, Witness for the Prosecution. During the course of the play, one of the actors is murdered on stage in front of Eve. While most people thought it was part of the performance, Eve knew right away that it wasn’t.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Witness in Death, Eve must figure out who switched the prop knife for the real knife. Who wanted Richard Draco dead? Almost the whole cast, but unlike Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, it wasn’t all of them. So who then? Join Eve as she solves the case.
This story is #10 of J.D. Robb’s In Death series. It takes place after Loyalty in Death and has some references to it. The killer in this one is bold, taking the actor out in front of Eve.

My plan for 2022 is to write three blog posts a week- one about a fantasy book, one about a mystery book, and one about a romance book (with some posts about series thrown in). This one is a mystery so if you’re a mystery lover, then you’ll want to check it out!
