"In the latest thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, homicide detective Eve Dallas investigates a murder with a mysterious motive-and a terrifying weapon. Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body-and killed him. After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team-and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn't been exposed-it's time to look into Dr. Abner's past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close-though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she's dealing with either a madman-or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims"-- Provided by publisher.

This is the 50th (wow!) installment of Nora Robert's amazing In Death series. It's a wonderful read with great Eve/Roarke moments! The scene where they plant their tree together is fantastic. The plot is fast-moving and timely. I did figure out who committed the crime, but being with Eve, Roarke, Peabody, Feeney and the rest of the gang is what really makes these books special. The theme of a character's ability to choose his/her own path is central to this plot. We also get to see a great moment when Peabody is pushed to the limit and of course Eve has her back. J.D. Robb does not disappoint with this fabulous book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I don’t get the bad reviews. I’ve read all the death box and I thought this one was absolutely excellent.

I couldn't finish this one, just too boring. This is the first in the series that I didn't enjoy, maybe it's time for some new characters or a new series.

I've read them all, many more than once, but this one was the first one I didn't finish. It was extremely BORING. Robb really phoned this one in. Same old routine with the husband, Peabody, the cat, all of them. Again, BORING.

Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Detective Peabody, get called to solve a case where someone is killing people with poison chemicals. They have their work cut out for them as they investigate the murders. This is a great book from J. D. Robb and I can't wait for the next book in this series.
