Rapture In Death/Ceremony In Death

By J. D. Robb

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

An omnibus edition featuring Eve Dallas as she weaves through the grisly crime world in search of truth and justice, featuring bestsellers RAPTURE IN DEATH and CEREMONY IN DEATH

Rapture in Death: Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common - and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. But police lieutenant Eve Dallas is immediately suspicious of the deaths. Her investigation turns to the provocative world of virtual reality games - where the same techniques used to create joy and desire can also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction.

Ceremony in Death: Conducting a top-secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally and is drawn into the most dangerous case of her career. Every step she takes makes her question her own beliefs of right and wrong - and brings her closer to a confrontation with humanity's most seductive form of evil . . .
