Delusion in Death

In this explosive thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series, Lieutenant Eve Dallas has to foil a terrorist plot. It was just another happy after-work hour at a downtown bar—until madness went down. And, more than eighty people lay dead after twelve minutes of chaos and violence. ... Lieutenant Eve Dallas attempts to sort the inexplicable events out. Surviving witnesses are talking about seeing things—bee monsters and swarms.

Reviews of Delusion in Death

The detection is uninspired and a bit of a slog. As so often in this bestselling series, the high point is the police interrogation of the perp—this time by a corps of five strong women who unite to bamboozle him in a most satisfying way.

I found the premise of Delusion in Death interesting, and liked the Urban Wars tie in...The resolution is satisfying as well.

Delusion in Death is a more cerebral story than an action one in that it focuses on psychology. Through the drama of a manhunt, it explores the motivations and reactions of Eve, her loved ones, the killer, the victims, her staff, and even society.

It's truly amazing to me that J.D. Robb can continue to come up with different and interesting ways for murder to happen, and that we as readers find each one plausible.
