This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The new novel featuring homicide detective Eve Dallas from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Devoted in Death.
Sometimes brotherhood can be another word for conspiracy. . . .
Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.
Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.
As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.

One of my favorites in the series!
Fantastic addition to the series. Lots of references to previous works but not in such a way that you would be lost if you haven't read them. Robb does her usual great job of setting an emotional scene and drawing the reader deep into the story. I love how the amount of attention paid to other established characters can vary from book to book without it feeling like you are missing out. One of the reasons this series has been able to go on for over twenty years and forty books is the ability of the author to not only come up with fresh, interesting stories that cause the reader to think and mull their own value system but also to establish an interesting cast of characters that the reader comes to know me care about. I certainly hope that JD Robb intends to mimic Agatha Christie and continue to write this series well into her old age as I can't imagine having to give up new additions to my collection, which I have read multiple times, any time in the near future!! Highly recommend...but strongly recommend you read the entire series starting with Naked in Death no Glory in Death and read them in order to fully appreciate the very well done character development.
I laughed, I cried...
I love this series. This book was downloaded at 10 pm last night, and I've finished it less than 24 hours later. These books are ones you can wait to read and are so sad when you're done. Thank goodness we get 2 a year. Brotherhood in Death is one of the best in the series in my opinion.
I have enjoyed previous novels from J.D Robb but this was just stupid. Set in 2060 for no apparent reason with no explanation or glossary of the terms used leaving one to the imagination. The plot was NOT - set up early and then reinforced to the max, no surprises here. I would have stopped reading it but hoped it would improve - my bad!
