jokes People die in remarkable ways and Eve finds the murderer.All good Now on to the next full length book This is a clever but sinister play on the classic children s story, Alice in Wonderlandby Lewis Carroll I ve always felt that story was really an adult fable and Robb s version definitely falls in that category What works about this story is how quickly we become connected to the victims and the rapidly developed investigation What initially looked like a murder suicide was later determined to be something other because of the determination of the friends and family of the victims who

to be something other because of the determination of the friends and family of the victims who were lucky to get Eve Dallas assigned to the case and convinced her to take a deeper look The connections to Alice abounded, which I enjoyed These stories are way too short but the hints of the paranormal always help to make theminteresting The case looked like a murder suicide to Lieutenant Eve Dallas but good friends, Louise and Charles, who knew the victims well said no, not possible The female victim s fianc said the same It was enough to kick Eve s investigative self into action When she discovered the weird references to Alice in Wonderland, it baffled her But as usual, Roarke had the answers How and why had Darlene Fitzwilliams killed her brother then herself Eve was determined to discover the answers to that questi The case looked like a murder suicide to Lieutenant Eve Dallas but good friends, Louise and Charles, who knew the victims well said no, not possible The female

a novella, the full story was there Entertaining, with laugh out loud moments as is the norm for JD Robb I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with the usual characters Highly recommended Eve s latest case appears to be open and shut murder suicide, a young woman stabbed her brother to death and then immediately jumped off of the balcony killing herself too However Louise and Charles were friends with the siblings and they re both convinced that there is no way Darlene would do this so Eve decides to take a closer look It turns out that Darlene has been visiting psychics to try and cope with the deaths of both her parents and it looks like someone has been messing with both her Eve s latest case appears to be open and shut murder suicide, a young woman stabbed her brother to death and then immediately jumped off of the balcony killing herself too However Louise and Charles were friends with the siblings and they re both convinced that there is no way Darlene would do this so Eve decides to take a closer look It turns out that Darlene has been visiting psychics to try and cope with the deaths of both her parents and it looks like someone has been messing with both her mind and her body by administering psychotropic drugs Eve has a killer on her hands and she s not going to let them get away with it.What I love about the In Death novellas is that they re always a little creepier than the main novels and tend to edge into supernatural territory Not only do we have a psychic who actually has some real kind of ability to brainwash his victims but he s also obsessed with Alice in Wonderland and determined to take Eve on a trip down the rabbit hole I m a huge Alice fan so I loved those elements to the story and I particularly enjoyed it when Eve and Peabody accidentally expose themselves to the same drugs that were used to control Darlene Luckily they knew what to expect and had backup on hand to make sure they were okay but it didn t make their reactions any less funny.Wonderment in Death was another fun instalment to the series One of the better of the In Death novellas Of the two In Death books released in September, I thought this was theenjoyable Most of the novellas have a theme and this one is no different This one has a delightful Alice in Wonderland theme Albeit a violent one I like this one better than Devoted mainly because it focusedon the relationships Especially Eve and Roarke This series never really disappoints. This is the rare situation where a novella works perfectly well on its own, but could equally have been expanded out to a full book I think this had a really nice plotting flow to it it felt like a fully realized story, but I also saw several points where JD Robb could have beefed things up to get to a novel Regardless, I thought this was one of the better novellas in the series This is the rare situation where a novella works perfectly well on its own, but could equally have been expanded out to a full book I think this had a really nice plotting flow to it it felt like a fully realized story, but I also saw several points where JD Robb could have beefed things up to get to a novel Regardless, I thought this was one of the better novellas in the series Wonderful book Eve is chasing after characters from Alice in Wonderland and is having just as much difficulty understanding the Mad Hatter as Alice did While reading the Lewis Carrol book I had thought how much Disney missed the mark with the character He was not a slightly tipsy uncle at the tea party The guy was nuts I could see him becoming homicidal Excellent story Wonderment in Death by J.D.Robb is a short novella in the In Death series taking place following book 41 Eve investigates a murder suicide where it appears that the killer was induced to kill under the influence of drugs and hypnosis Amazing as always with references to Alice in Wonderland.
