Forgotten in Death excerpt

A little surprise on this Tuesday morning — the Forgotten in Death excerpt!

The body was left in a dumpster like so much trash, the victim a woman of no fixed address, known for offering paper flowers in return for spare change–and for keeping the cops informed of any infractions she witnessed on the street. But the notebook where she scribbled her intel is nowhere to be found.

Then Eve is summoned away to a nearby building site to view more remains–in this case decades old, adorned with gold jewelry and fine clothing–unearthed by recent construction work. She isn’t happy when she realizes that the scene of the crime belongs to her husband, Roarke–not that it should surprise her, since the Irish billionaire owns a good chunk of New York. Now Eve must enter a complex world of real estate development, family history, shady deals, and shocking secrets to find justice for two women whose lives were thrown away…

Forgotten in Death is out September 7. You’ll find the excerpt here: Chapter One.

EDITED TO ADD on August 31: As a little surprise, here’s a small peek at Chapter Two.

    1. As always, looks to be a good one. September still over 3 months away. Can’t wait!

  4. Made my day. I love your books, and especially the death series. Thanks

  5. I am currently re-reading the series. I just started Calculated in Death. Frightening how the world seems to be to heading to the “Urban Wars” – but having Eve so much in my head always gives me confidence in myself. SO looking forward to the new book!

  6. Can hardly wait! Each book keeps adding so much depth to the characters. Looking forward to solving the mysteries, along with out favorites.

  7. I am so looking forward to this one.
    JD Robb you are simply amazing.

  8. Oh boy …can’t hardly wait…..this one is gonna be great( well, all the others were too!)

  9. Patiently waiting. Never missed one unless I was deployed then I had a friend pick it up for me.

  10. It’s bad for me to read excerpts. I’m not a patient person when it comes to books – I have to keep going. I’m going to be brave and not read the excerpt; I can wait for the full novel.

  11. WOW, now I really, really need to read this book! Cannot wait til September! Love these books.

  12. Aw, geez, I have a possible surgery being scheduled the following week. I should save it for post surgery day. Ha-ha-ha. Sure, like that’s going to happen

  13. Looking forward to September. This is going to be a long slow summer. 🙁

  14. Another winner,if the first chapter is anything to go by, its going to be a thrilling great read,cannot wait.

  15. I have been spoiled. I love traveling to Dallas’ world for a visit even though she’s always on a case.

  16. I’m going to pick it up at the store the moment it comes out. So glad I’m fully vaccinated, so that I don’t have to wait for the mail.

  17. Preordered it as soon as I finished the last one and it was up on Amazon. I don’t think the cover was even up yet.

  18. Thank you so much for that terrific excerpt!!! Just what I needed after a stress filled week. Now if only my patience will hold until September…..

  19. Wow, that’s some opening chapter! It’s been preordered a couple of months ago and looking forward to reading it at the end of the summer!

  20. G’day! Thank heavens for a new Death, I am rereading the series while waiting.

  21. Can anyone tell me who is narrating the audible version? It is not on their site. I just want to make sure it is Susan, because of not, I probably will stick to the hardback. I hear Susan character voices when I read them, so I don’t think I am white ready for someone new. Neither of the new Robb books indicate the narrator.

  22. Maybe this was covered in other discussion threads and I missed it, but this thought keeps nagging at me: why doesn’t Roark seem to have friends of his own? All of the people who are members of Eve and Roark’s inner circle came from Eve’s relationships, didn’t they? Summerset is more of a father figure than a friend, so I don’t count him in the Friend of Roark category.

    1. Eve had Mavis and Feeney, Roark had Summerset and Brian. They made all the rest of their friends together
