In the new 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.

Random in Death is the next book in the In Death series and I cannot tell you how much these books give me life!!! I adore this series. I love the characters, I love the mystery, and I adore the narrator.

Random in Death features a type of crime that is truly scary-totally random murder. Trying to figure out who the killer is when there is no connection to the victims is a challenge, even for Eve. Jake Kincaid is back in this edition, along with Nadine, Quilla, and Jamie. Of course, Roarke, Peabody, Feeney, and McNab are there as well too. This was certainly one of those “all hands on deck” crimes.

These characters have so much meaning to me. Its like peeking in on friends or people I know IRL. I’m so attached and invested in this series. If you haven’t started it, you simply need to drop all your other reads and grab Naked in Death (book 1). Seriously, I can’t say enough great things about the series, and Random in Death just continued the amazing journey.

Susan Ericksen narrates the series and she is simply one of the BEST narrators! She brings this series to life with her voice acting. Simply Brilliant!
