Nora Roberts didn't become an immediate best-selling author, but once she sold her first novel, she never looked back. A mother of two small children at the time, Roberts began writing in 1979 with a number-two pencil and a spiral notebook. She wrote sporadically while her two sons were at school, a schedule she maintained long after they had grown up and gone to college. Two years and several manuscripts after her initial attempt, her first novel, "Irish Thoroughbred", appeared, the first of over 100 novels she would write in the following two decades. While having dabbled in many of the genre's forms, Roberts has found most of her success writing contemporary romances flavored with both suspense and adventure. The youngest of five children, Roberts grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. In 1968, she married Ronald Aufdem-Brinke, the father of her two children, but divorced him in 1985, the same year she married her second husband, Bruce Wilder.

Investigating the senseless killing of an elderly man by three drug-addled punks, Peabody tackles the case as a new primary detective before stumbling on an operation by two corrupt fellow officers who have just committed a murder. By the author of Indulgence in Death. Read by Susan Ericksen. Simultaneous.
New York Police and Security Lt. Eve Dallas and her partner Det. Delia Peabody take on corruption within their own ranks in J.D. Robb's 33rd novel in this reliably entertaining series. It is interesting to watch Delia, who is still new to the game, learn the ropes-- giving Eve a chance to show off of a bit, which is never a bad thing. And the cops' investigation is a claustrophobic and intense, since the enemies could be friends.
