Review: Random In Death - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

In this crime thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling J.D. Robb, a small and easily concealed weapon wreaks havoc, and the killer is just a face in the crowd.

Jenna’s parents had finally given in, and there she was, at a New York club with her best friends, watching the legendary band Avenue A, carrying her demo in hopes of slipping it to the guitarist, Jake Kincade. Then, from the stage, Jake catches her eye, and smiles. It’s the best night of her life.
It’s the last night of her life.

Minutes later, Jake’s in the alley getting some fresh air, and the girl from the dance floor comes stumbling out, sick and confused and deathly pale. He tries to help, but it’s no use. He doesn’t know that someone in the crowd has jabbed her with a needle—and when his girlfriend Nadine arrives, she knows the only thing left to do for the girl is call her friend, Lieutenant Eve Dallas.

After everyone on the scene is interviewed, lab results show a toxic mix of substances in the victim’s body—and for an extra touch of viciousness, the needle was teeming with infectious agents. Dallas searches for a pattern: Had any boys been harassing Jenna? Was she engaging in risky behavior or caught up in something shady? But there are no obvious clues why this levelheaded sixteen-year-old, passionate about her music, would be targeted.

And that worries Dallas. Because if Jenna wasn’t targeted, if she was just the random, unlucky victim of a madman consumed by hatred, there are likely more deaths to come.

Review: Random In Death

Lieutenant Eve Dallas, Peabody, Roarke, and the rest of our beloved crew, is back with another riveting case.

A murderer is targeting young girls by injecting them with a nasty, highly toxic cocktail of drugs which kills them in minutes.

Sixteen-year-old Jenna Harbough is the first victim, jabbed in the arm by a male while attending an Avenue A concert, where she hoped to slip a demo tape to singer Jake Kincade. The next day, another victim, with more to follow.

Eve, Peabody, and the team leave no stone unturned as they piece together the clues. They’re dealing with a highly intelligent perpetrator—someone skilled at chemistry, someone fueled by rage and malice. It’s fascinating to see it all come together, as always, by such a compelling cast of characters.

This is book 58 and still I never tire of the series, of the stories and adventures J.D. Robb so expertly imparts. This fast-paced procedural is the perfect blend of heart and suspense, and a 2024 favorite already.
