Publisher's Summary

The brand-new thriller in the Sunday Times best-selling series

For a homicide cop, murder often started the day. For the mixed-race female sloppily wrapped in a tarp and stuffed in a construction site dumpster, it had surely ended hers.

Lt. Eve Dallas hasn't even arrived at work when her first call of the day comes in. Alva Quirk - 46 years old, sidewalk sleeper - was beaten to death with a crowbar. Known to the local cops for handing out origami flowers to anyone who gives her change, Alva was well-liked, but with no fixed address, no job and no family, there's no one to remember her.

Eve has barely had time to examine the crime scene when her second victim of the morning is discovered just a block away. Make that second and third. Jane Doe - a well-dressed young mother and her baby shot and buried over 40 years ago.

Two very different victims in the same location with no one to claim them. Coincidence? Or does the history of the site hold the answer? To uncover the truth, Eve must delve into a world of family businesses, Russian mobsters and shady dealings. These two women may have been forgotten in their lifetimes, but Eve Dallas won't let them be forgotten in death

No character development and no suspense

Always look forward to hearing about Eve and Roarke but for the last 3-4 books in particular, including this one, JD Robb has just been dialing it in - no character development in relation to any of the recurring characters, no suspense and certainly nothing "thrilling" about the story line. Just a police procedural where everything happens to slot nicely into place with little effort. Disappointing.

Forgotten in Death - 2 super stories in one

A great book with two cases intertwining. I think it is the best in a while from JDR (and I adore this series).

Super strong storytelling by JDR and - as always - superb performances by Susan Ericksen (one of the best narrators in the US).

I miss Mavis and Bella mayhem sometimes but, while they are mentioned briefly in this book, they would have clouded the story of two murders 37 years apart and how Eve, Peabody, Roarke and company go about solving both.

I absolutely loved escaping into this one.

Never Fails

As usual, Nora Roberts has created yet another installation that breathes further light into the characters and the world created.

JD Robb does it again

Another great story with well loved characters. The only minor blip was Eve seemingly forgetting information from her interview with the elder Singers. I put it down to her being tired!
As usual I found the narration and pacing spot on.

I loved it as usual

I always love these books. This one was no exception. The different elements to the story were good. I liked both parts. I love it when Harvo is in the story and seeing Eve talking to Elsie was funny. The thing that stuck out most was the mention of the Topper. No idea what a Topper was but I swear it was mentioned 50 times. So funny. I loved the book though.

Much better

I'll admit that I've found the last few Robb books to be generally poorer in content and a little repetitive however Forgotten in Death seems to have hit all the right notes, although the narration did not feel as good as usual, I found it more difficult to distinguish some of the characters. The story was interesting and the investigation flowed well, and Alva's back story added a lot of human interest.
