Publisher's Weekly Review

Bestseller Robb's gripping 47th thriller set in a near-future New York City (after Dark in Death) opens with a bang. One morning, Paul Rogan arrives at a Downtown Manhattan office building, where he's to participate in a meeting about a merger between his company, Quantum Air, and another company, EconoLife. Shortly after entering the conference room, Rogan detonates the suicide vest he's wearing, killing himself and 10 others. At the scene, Lt. Eve Dallas and her team have to wonder whether the suicide bombing was an act of terrorism or homicide. When they interview Rogan's wife, Cecily, and their eight-year-old daughter, Melody, they learn that two men broke into the Rogans' brownstone earlier and threatened to kill Cecily and Melody, or worse, unless Rogan did their bidding. Robb keeps the action moving as the members of her ensemble cast interview survivors, analyze the bomb used, and gain enough clues to identify the villains. Series fans will be enthralled. 750,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
