Delusion in Death by J.D. RobbSynopsis:
It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks . . .until something went terribly wrong. And after twelve minutes of chaos and violence, eighty people lay dead.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things—monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics gives its report, the mass delusions make more sense: It appears the bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive anyone to temporary insanity—if not kill them outright.
But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror—or why. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne. . . .
Teaser from page 35
” She went straight to her office, ignoring everything else – and did what she rarely did. She shut the door. Inside the small space with its single skinny window, she dropped down at her desk. And she ignored her flashing message light on her desk ‘link.
For the next fifteen minutes, if she could manage it, she wanted to concentrate on putting everything she knew, had seen, had confirmed, every detail every conversation, every speculation into words.”
I was crazy excited when this showed up in my mailbox yesterday. Luckily, I was right at the end of my last read and was able to get right to it. Already, deep in a crazy story. I can’t wait to see how this one plays out.
What are you reading this week? I hope you will stop by and share your teaser!
