In futuristic New York City (the year is 2059), the terrors come one at a time, and supercop Eve Dallas must stop them. Eve is one cool cookie, but this time she confronts a serial killer who masquerades as Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy and other vicious criminals of the past. Imitation in Death is a gripping story of copycat killing told by veteran romance author Nora Roberts, writing under the pseudonym J.D. Robb. If you haven't yet dipped into her gritty cop dramas, a treat awaits. The unwanted daughter of a junkie, Eve carries a heavy load of personal baggage into her relationships, even avoiding total candor with her uber-wealthy husband, Roarke. But underneath the tough-girl exterior, Eve's angst gives her unique insights that make her an ace detective. As the seemingly disparate victims become linked in a sinister chain, Eve becomes the ultimate prey in a cat-and-mouse game with the killer. In this near-future, high-tech world some things never change: the spark of attraction, the terror of pursuit and the triumph of justice.
