Waiting on Wednesday: Delusion in Death by J.D. Robb

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I flat-out LOVE the In Death series. It's been my favorite series for quite some time (heck, I don't go fangirl but I love this series enough that I named my cat for the hero, Roarke), so of course I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for Delusion in Death. Plus the case in Delusion in Death sounds awesome :)

Delusion in Death Cover Title: Delusion in Death
Series: In Death, Book 35
Author: J.D. Robb
Genre: Mystery
Publisher: Putnam Adult
Release Date: September 11, 2012

Book Description (from

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...

Wow-that is a cool case! Who would do such an awful thing to people? Also, this is the 35th book in the series? That's definitely one of the longest series I've seen.

I have never read J.D. Robb before but this sounds great, read her as Nora Roberts before. Just might have to finally check her out.

Thanks for stopping by, it seems we like the same author's as well. I'm following back.
