Faithless in Death teasers

For the first time in about a decade, the US and UK/IR/AU/NZ/SA release dates don’t line up for an In Death. St. Martin’s Press had to push the release to Feb. 9, while readers in other countries were able to start on Feb. 2.

I will post teasers for the next four days — as usual these are little things to look for as you race through Faithless in Death. This is NOT the discussion thread. Any/all spoilers will be deleted immediately. I will open the discussion thread early on February 9.

Book description:

Faithless opens on a lover’s quarrel turned fatal, but Eve quickly realizes there are larger and more terrifying motives behind it. 

The scene in the West Village studio appears to be classic crime-of-passion: two wineglasses by the bed, music playing, and a young sculptor named Ariel Byrd with the back of her head bashed in. But when Eve tracks down the Upper East Side woman who called 911, the details don’t add up. Gwen Huffman is wealthy, elegant, and sheds tears over the trauma of finding the body.  But why did it take an hour to report it? And why is she lying about little things?

As Eve and her team look into Gwen, her past, and the people around her, they find the lies are about more than murder. As with sculpture, they need to chip away at the layers of deception to find the shape within.  In this case, that shape involves a sinister, fanatical group and a stunning criminal conspiracy.

Here’s the first of the teasers, I will post one a day until Saturday.

Wednesday, Feb. 3
We learn there may be physical limitations to wiggle/toss actions.
We learn Trina may be generous but that doesn’t quite offset her pushy/bossy/scary side.
We learn Det. Carmichael’s theory as to why vending machines hate Eve.

Thursday, Feb 4
Sorry gang, there was an issue posting yesterday. Here are the 3 teasers.
We learn Eve can see a surprise coming from a mile away.
But we also learn Summerset knows all the surprises.
We learn what Eve really eats for breakfast.

Friday, Feb 5
We learn Mira weighed choices on her dissertation.
We learn that while kids are not her thing, Eve aces playground duty.
We learn that all Marriage Rules are different.

Monday, February 8
We’ll end with a question and two comments:
Is Eve ever out of cop mode?
Yancy is a credit to his rank.
Dochas is a place of beauty both in plan and in action.

  1. Can’t wait!!! And as it turns out—a best friend has her 65th bday on the 9th. And she loves NR/JD as much as I do. Guess what she’s getting! ❤️

  2. I had it in my mind it was the 9th anyway so not disappointed but counting the days.

  3. I love the anticipation in the week before the books comes out. Besides covid and homebound age restrictions, we got over 20″ of snow. My car is cleaned. But once I get it out, where can I park? There’s nothing else ( Besides grandbabies) that sparks as much joy as a new ID book, and time to read it

  4. I love the teasers, and look forward to them for each In Death book. Thanks, Laura!

  5. Was waiting for the teasers. I just love them & enjoy finding them in the books. Got my book pre-ordered & am really looking forward to an “in death” read.

  6. Love the teasers! Looking forward to the book. Currently on #31, Indulgence in Death, on my rereading journey.

  7. I took a vacation day on the 9th and since I have the e-book on preorder I can start reading when I wake up and not have to stop because of work. Also not be distracted while trying to work by wanting to read the book. 🙂

    Also, love the teasers, I’m so glad you’re continuing to do this with each new release.

  8. Love teasers!
    Can’t wait to find out Det. Carmichael’s theory on the vending machines. Always love a new In Death book.

  9. Love the teasers! Thanks Laura! I’ll be taking a late nap on the 8th, so I can start as soon as Audible releases it that night. That’s the plus side of no longer waiting for the MP3 to arrive the day of publication, I can start that early A.M.

  10. Oh, thank you, Laura. Love your selection of teasers. I can’t wait to find out if my guess about the vending machines is even close to Carmichael’s. Keep ‘em coming!

  11. I have read – MANY TIMES – every book she has ever written. I own a few, the others I get from the library. I have had a request for this one in to the library ever since they posted it in their catalog so that it COULD be requested.

  12. Love the teasers. The best part of retirement is being able to start reading at midnight.

    1. And being retired , I can read into the wee hours of the am if I choose .No alarm clocks to answer .Read as long as I want , sleep as long as I want , wake , get coffee ,and read some more .

  13. We learn that all Marriage Rules are different.

    That’s pretty funny, considering Eve is constantly re-writing the rules! It’ll be fun seeing what’s the new rule.

    Thanks, Laura!

  14. laughing at the idea of Eve on playground duty–I figure she handles it like she does the florist & the decorator when she’s working on the holiday party setup…but if she’s carrying her weapon…could be a problem! Roarke made her leave that behind in the party prep!

  15. I finished the book in one day! BUT, I did have one loose end that I didn’t see covered: Keene Grimsley is the brother who had gone missing two years earlier, when he was going to expose the sect. But, after Chapter 13, he’s never mentioned again. They rescue the FBI Field Agent, but never make mention ofKeene (even to say that documents indicated he had been silenced.) Was that intentional?

    1. I added this further upstream on the comments – and this is directly from Nora:

      Natural Order caught Keene when he attempted to get evidence against them, killed him, cremated him. Not all cases are closed. Not all questions are answered.


  16. Which previous book does Nadine Furst’s new book refer to? I’d like to go back and read it. Something about Red Horse?

  17. I finally finished my reread of the In Death series and just completed Faithless in Death. Wow! I just love Eve, Roarke, her team and her circle of friends – they are awesome! This is a many faceted and complex case, but Eve gets all the threads and weaves them into a coherent and flawless case. The takedown was very well orchestrated. Loved it.

    Just a quick question: will McNab get a magic coat?
