Strangers in Death product reviews

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. But as ever, some murders receive more attention than others-especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed-and strangled- with cords of black velvet.

It doesn't surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders's scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation to the public-and of humiliation to his family. But while people in the city are talking about it, those close to Anders aren't so anxious to do the same. With some help from her billionaire husband, Roarke, Eve's soon knocking on doors-or barging through them-to find answers.

But the facts don't add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn't struggle. The security breach in the apartment indicates that the killer was someone known to the family, but everyone's alibi checks out. Was this a crime of passion in a kinky game gone wrong-or a meticulously planned execution? It's up to Dallas to solve a case in which strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways.

Eve Dallas's latest case is giving her a headache. Thomas Anders's is found dead, strangled with cords of black velvet and no one is being of any assistance. Everything in Eve's gut and instincts tells her that his wife had something to do with his death, but she has such a hard time finding any proof. Then, Baxter and Trueheart ask for her help with a cold case and they find a link between it and her currant case.

This case strikes me as nothing new, I think CSI or a similar TV show did an episode around the same time where it has a similar plot-line, but it was still a good read. The one thing I really enjoy about these books is that is usually has a good story and some great moments, but also isn't a hard read, so I finish in a day or two.

A good moment in this book was the fight between Roarke and Eve over money. Eve had used her own money for something, and then was reminded that she has an account that Roarke puts money into. Though Eve doesn't wish to use it, as she didn't marry him for his money (despite some peoples point of view), but they do eventually manage to sort things out.

Product reviews for listing 6127: Charmed Life
Written by: Diana Wynne Jones

Product image for Charmed LifeWelcome to the worlds of Chrestomanci, where magic is as common as mathematics!

Everybody says that Gwendolyn Chant is a gifted witch with astonishing powers, so it suits her enormously when she is taken to live in Chrestomanci Castle. Her brother Eric (better known as Cat) is not so keen, for he has no talent for magic at all.

However, life with the great enchanter is not what either of them expects and sparks begin to fly!
