    Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

    Overall

    Nora Roberts has always been one of my favorite authors and didn't let me down here. I loved the character of Maggie, she made me stretch the image I usually picture as the main female character. Maggie just wouldn't be anyone I'd pictured before she was so strong and sassy I had to create a whole new image in my mind's eye. Loved this character.
    The only thing that could have made this book better was if it was read by Susan Ericksen (who reads Nora's JD Robb, In Death Series). Susan has got it down. The reader here just plain read to fast.

    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    L. Reiner says: "In Death Book 33.5 - Not Robb's best, but good"
    "Can't get enough"

    What did you love best about Chaos in Death?

    The killer wasn't obvious but didn't come out of nowhere either, that's the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jekel & Hyde angle


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    It wouldn't be an Eve Dallas story without Susan, she IS the characters' voice. I lover her intensity, she really pulls me into the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    These books always make me laugh, I love the banter and snarky comments.


    Any additional comments?

    This was shorter than most of the books in the series, but I like one that I can finish in one day off and on. Didn't take away from the story at all.

    Story

    All her life, Ashlyn Darrow has been tormented by voices from the past. To end the nightmare, she has come to Budapest seeking help from men rumored to have supernatural abilities, not knowing she'll be swept into the arms of Maddox, their most dangerous member - a man trapped in a hell of his own.

    Overall

    The intensity of Maddox's fight with his literal inner demon just amplifies the heat between him and Ashlynn. Amazingly Showalter manages a sumptuous depth of character development with out slowing the story down at all.
