    This is an enjoyable collection of three novellas from the first two years of Eve’s and Roarke’s rmarriage. Interlude in Death (#7.5), Midnight in Death (#12.5) and Haunted in Death (22.5). In Interlude in Death, Eve and Roarke go off planet to a Policing conference held in one of Roarke’s luxurious resorts. Eve hates space travel and is anxious about having to present a seminar. On top of that someone is trying to frame Roarke for a murder. Eve, Peabody and Feeney must race the clock to identify the killer before the interplanetary police arrive.Midnight in Death is my favourite of the three and is set at Christmas. A man Eve believed safely locked in away in a high security jail has escaped and is torturing and killing those involved in putting him away. Eve is on that list, as is her friend Dr Mira so she needs to work fast to catch this killer.Haunted in Death is a ghost story but Eve doesn’t believe in ghosts and refuses to accept that supernatural happenings are going on. A famous singer killed and hidden in a bricked up building has been haunting the rooms for many years. When her skeleton is found near the body of a dead man who has bought the building Eve must solve the two seemingly unrelated cases. These were enjoyable stories, especially good for holiday reading. As novellas, they lack the depth of a full length Eve Dallas novel although Midnight in Death managed to pack a lot into a shorter story, but they are fun sidetracks into Eve’s world.

    3/14/17 4 stars. Midnight in Death. Crazy evil was stopped after three people paid the price. Did I miss something? We never got to see Roarke receive Eve's gift. Unless I totally blacked out, while reading Holiday in Death.3/21/17 4 stars. Interlude in Death. I didn't peg the killer. I did peg the relation of the killer.4/30/17 2 stars. Haunted in Death. I didn't really care for this one at all. Ghost from the past. Bleh. Supernatrual bust for me.

    Petites novellas très sympas qui sont complètement dans le moule des tomes réguliers. C'est drôle de revenir sur des affaires passées, quand on sait ce qui arrive après.

    Book 14 or 12.5 - Another murder at Roarke's resort, we get another glimpse into the past and see that too much dedication can be a real problem. There may be a connection between Dallas and Roarke's fathers. Readers will need to keep an eye on this. It was my first time reading this one, and I enjoy the insight and quick reads if the shorter novels. I missed McNab. Eve saved Peabody's life, and it would have been fun to hear Eve's speech. This is also the first and only time I saw Eve ready and willing to hand over a case.

    My 300th review! Yea, throw confetti folks!Three In Death short story...Three fabulous idea...Three Eve Dallas kicking ass scenes...Three Roarke's smexiness! X)This anthology contain Midnight in DeathInterlude in Death, and Haunted in Death, which previously published in another anthology featuring another authors.Interlude in DeathEve must go to outer space,Olympus Resort, to give a speech. At there, she met a legendary cop that target Roarke, because of his father's sins. When the cop's bodyguard murdered, Eve must find the killer and clean Roarke's name. We will read the scene when Roarke ride a jet bike. Le swooon....!Midnight in DeathMight be the best story in this antho. The short amounts of words not make the story feel rushed. J.D.Robb show her class, even the story too short and just 10 chapters, you can feel the ride. Eve must face her old enemy, and that enemy target everyone who made him go to jail. The worst happen when he capture Dr Mira. Eve must race with time to save her.Haunted in DeathThe creepiest story of In Death series! I don't know if the ghost in this story is real or just the culprit's hallucination, but its still make me paranoid to read this one. Eve find a cold case, when a famous actress suddenly disappear, and the room where she lost now was haunted. When someone murdered at that room, Eve found the actress's bones. Guess, she'd killed. But who kill the first victim? Is it that actress's ghost or someone who impostor her?For In Death fans, this anthology is a must read. Don't worry if you don't like short story. J.D.Robb is capable to make readers still enjoy this =)

    I have a pile of books for donation. Books people have given me over the yrs.. some I am interested in, and some not so much. But the JD Robb one I wanted to read before I gave it away. I enjoy reading about Lieutenant Dallas. These are 3 short stories that fill in the gaps between her books. And while I haven't read all of the Dallas books, I have enough there to know some of the stories she references. They were good. And while I like short stories.. and Robb/Roberts writes a good one, I kinda prefer her longer novels. Altho there were plenty of good bits in these to make me happy enough to keep reading.

    I always enjoy Robb's Eve Dallas stories, but reading this one confirmed that short stories are not my favorite way to experience them. It's just not possible to develop the plot details and spend time on the interactions of the characters the way it can be done in the full-length novel. So I'd say each story was fine, but only that.

    Usually, I don't do short stories but I like the In Death series so much that I read it and actually like it. These are three short stories (long enough to be treated as novellas) placed in a different parts of the series.All three stories are quite interesting. I think I like the two first ones a bit more than the last one which have some paranormal twist in it. I generally don't do short stories because they are lacking the development of plot and characters. Fortunately, this is not a case with this book. The characters are well-known so they don't need any father development and the plot has enough twists and a good pace.

    I very much enjoyed this trio of Eve Dallas short stories. Since they are presented as widely separated in time, each helps to enlarge the understanding of the ongoing relationships of the important people in her life, Roarke and Peabody in particular. All three were well written as you'd expect and given the length of each, complex. My quibble, hence the "4 stars" rating was the lack of full development which I did miss. I am a devoted fan and really novel length for total involvement.

    Each book had me on the edge! Buckle up and hold on to something because suspense and suspicion will grip you with every line. Incredibly written with such attention to even the smallest detail. I love when things began to pop and click for Eve...it’s almost tangible. You will not be disappointed with this series.

    Short but interestingThis was a good quick bridge from memory in death. Family connections, ghosts from the past, and finding closer. The fact that Eve doesn’t believe in ghosts make it even better.

    A trio of in death novellas, each of these stories serves to develop the relationship between Eve, Roarke and the rest of the gang. They are not as satisfying as an actual novel, not having the space to truly develop characters or plots, but they are an entertaining brief read.

    Three in Death 3 novellas by J.D. Robb. Each novella stars Lieutenant Eve Dallas, NYPSD (New York Police and Security Department)most famous homicide detective, her very rich, very attractive husband known only as Roarke and many of her co workers from Cop Center.Interlude in DeathSpring 2059. Lt. Eve Dallas' commander has given her the difficult task of heading a seminar at the Interplanetary Law Enforcement and Security Conference, to make things worse, the conference is taking place off planet. Shortly upon arrival, Lt. Dallas has some heated words with Commander Skinner, considered by all to be a legend. Seems the legend has a problem with Dallas's husband that dates back many years and in face originated with Roarke's father. After one of Commander Skinner's body guards is killed, its up to Eve and Olympus Police Chief, Darcia Angelo, to solve the crime before Roarke is arrested for it.This story just didn't grab me. I thought it moved slowly and there were no real surprises. This has been my least favorite of the "In Death" stories.Midnight in DeathChristmas 2058. Lt. Eve Dallas is called out in the predawn cold to Rockefeller Center where Judge Wainger was definitely not having a joyous Christmas morning. Recognizing the signature of the kill as her old nemesis David Palmer, whom should still be locked up in a cage of planet for several murders 3 years earlier, she knows this is going to be a rough holiday. With David leaving a list of potential victims, and one of them already missing. Eve knows it will take all her skill as well as her team and her husband to catch him before he gets to the last name on the list, her own.Really liked this story, moved quickly and I really liked the ending.Haunted in DeathJanuary 2060, the weather is a bitch, and tempers in and around the New York area are frayed. Domestic disturbances are up, and Lt. Eve Dallas knows its only a matter of time before someone takes it to far. Not surprised by the anonymous call that sends her and her partner Detective Peabody to Twelve East Twelfth, she is surprised cause of death, a food old fashioned gunshot, actually several gunshot, wounds. Even more of a surprise is the old skeleton found on the third floor, which also has been shot, possibly by the old but recently cleaned gun found beside it. Amid rumors of hauntings and curses surrounding the building of Twelve East Twelfth, her husband Roarke and her partner's beliefs of things that go bump in the night along with unease from other members of her team, Lt. Dallas has to come up with a solution before she starts seeing ghosts too.I liked this story, it was a little different than other "In Death" stories as it deals with the paranormal. It was interesting to watch how Dallas deals with things she just can't grasp.An all round good read, each story has a good plot, great characters and a methodical progression.

    12-26-2016: Interlude in Death (12.5) - I had previously read in Out of This World (4 stories, only one of which was JD Robb) which occurs during the first year of Eve and Roarke's marriage. Too short, but it has many of the characters with Peabody, Feeney, Morris, Mira all attending a police seminar where Eve is expected to give a speech. Horrors! I would have loved to have heard it though. A bit disappointing that she didn't get around to giving it, what with murder and mayhem dogging her footsteps. Theme is "sins of the fathers ..." and it has an old fogy who is delightfully behind the times where women in the work force, gun bans, etc. are concerned. Just the man to rile the blood. A legend in the police force, he retires from a successful 50 years as a policeman and fails, like Wellington, at politics. I've often wondered why people who excel at giving orders think they can make it in politics where the art of making the deal rules. Businessmen, yes. Military and police, no. At any rate, the book is first rate, but, again, too short. 12-9-2016: Midnight in Death (7.5) occurs during their first Christmas season together. I am trying to re-read all the In Death books in order but I had already finished the 9th one when I realized this one is 7.5. So I stopped and read it quickly for the third time, while trying to figure out where it belongs in the sequence. Fortunately, Holiday in Death made such an impact, it was pretty easy. This one, too, takes place during the Christmas holidays, beginning on Christmas day where Holiday left off. No new characters introduced, the murderer is known from the beginning by both Eve and the reader, and the murders are grizzly, but still it's hard to put down. It is a good, quick read. 1-16-2016: Haunted in Death (22.5) takes place during Roarke and Eve's second year of marriage and after Peabody and McNab start their cohab. The plot is eerie but strangely believable. There are no surprises (odd that I thought there would be) for the first murder, occurring 85 years prior in the 1960's. But that murder is followed by generations of emotional and spiritual mayhem, most sadly for the victim's family. I had trouble with that part of the story, because it doesn't seem fair or right to not only be murdered but to haunt your family to madness. The murderer's family, yes. Your own, no. As usual, the story is too short and you are left wondering what happens to the Gills and to Number 12. I guess something should be left to the reader's imaginations, they should do some of the work after getting all the enjoyment of Ms. Roberts work, but Ms. Roberts has such a fertile imagination herself that I prefer hers to mine.

    Three for the price of One. Neat!I'm not sure whether these are shortened versions of some books previously published or simply short adventures in their own right - one way or another, they are no less intriguing and/or gripping. And while they are set in different and non-sequential time frames, they do have a common subject, namely, putting Dallas, Lieutenant Eve, at ill-ease. Not that this is too difficult if she cannot rush in full cop-mode. Well, let me explain:-Interlude In Death is set off-planet and out of Eve's jurisdiction ... in one of Rourke's establishments. She is meant to host a seminar which scares the heebie-jeebies out of her although she is right in her element when a retired veteran cop tries to smear not only her husband's good name but her own and she wallops one of the bodyguards trying to stop her from walking away. However, she is not the boss here and has to play second fiddle to the local Head of Police - yet another new experience for our heroine aside from socialising and generally playing nice.Midnight In Death has Eve trying to protect a list of people against an escaped serial killer she put away and who is especially interested in playing scientist with her. Again, Eve has to battle with her emotions on various levels, especially when those close to her are being threatened.Haunted In Death peaks her against ghosts which she vehemently refuses to acknowledge, no matter what everybody around her is saying. However, as with the other two stories, Eve does have to admit to actually feeling emotions, no matter how cop she is! In fact, she has to open up to her husband predominantly as to what is driving her and why she feels the way she does. Essentially, we keep on learning what makes Dallas, Lieutenant Eve, tick!Nora Roberts - as J D Robb - yet again excels in her story telling, not only describing the actual cases and their resolution that you may or may not have seen coming but also - and this is really all the fun in this particular series - the slowly emerging and emotional healing of the woman, Eve Dallas.

    I really hate buying anthologies in order to read one story by an author I like. So, I was delighted when the publisher decided to combine three of Robb's previously published stories in one volume. I usually prefer novels over short stories because stories often don't have enough time to really get going. JD Robb is a rare exception wherein her stories are on par with the full novels, mainly because the stage has already been set by the series, and it makes sense for a cop to have some cases that aren't as in depth. Each of the stories in Three in Death was excellent.Interlude in Death: Eve has to go to a police conference held off-planet on one of Roarke's resorts. She hates space travel, and loathes giving speeches so when the conference is interrupted by a murder - it's fortuitous for her, if not the victim. The culprit is easy to guess right from the start, but it is the motive that keeps Eve investigating. This story was good because sometimes good people lose their way, and it was interesting to see how Eve handled that.Midnight in Death: Christmas is interrupted by an escaped murderer previously caught by Eve. Once again, there isn't much need for investigating as Eve knows who the killer is. The suspense is built by the two of them playing a deadly game of cat and mouse against each other. Short, but engaging.Haunted in Death: This is my favorite of the three, because it pits the straight-laced Eve against something that just might be otherworldly. Do ghosts really exist? Eve is called to a murder committed with a hand gun - unheard of in her time. Moreover, another very old body is discovered at the same location - a location said to be haunted. This story was fun, and kept me guessing because the killer is not obvious.Overall, I truly enjoyed this collection and hope the publisher does the same with more of the In Death novellas. Highly recommended.

    Midnight In Death:This short-story was really fun. It takes place only a few hours after the previous book and it's different from the other books in the series.It has only ten chapters (small ones) so you can read it in no time. There's not much to say about thisMidnight in Death.I found it interesting that the criminal had a past with Eve. She had already put him in jail once. I thought it brought a reflex of reality to the story. Eventually some criminals have to be freed. Or they try to escape. This one escaped and Eve caught him - twice.The end was a little forced and way to easy - even for a person like Eve. But this is only an anthology so I couldn't expect more than what I got. Roarke is always amazing. Eve got a little carried away when (view spoiler)[ Dave imprisoned Dr. Mira(hide spoiler)]. That was a first - seeing Eve loose control. Interlude In Death:Another chance to see Eve and Roarke. And the rest of my favourite characters.. I missed McNabb though. But I appreciate every chance I get to read about them. Every case that's presented to us is interesting. This one included. It's intriguing to see how the past has a way to spoil the present and how much dangerous old grudges are.It was a shock to discover that (view spoiler)[ both Eve and Roarke's father knew each other(hide spoiler)]Haunted In Death:This anthology was pretty great. I really liked it. It was a strange but interesting case, with a bit of paranormal. It was slightly different from the other anthologies in this book, but it was by far the better among the three. It sure is good to be able to see these bits and pieces of Eve and Roarke that aren't long enough to fit in a whole book but they're pretty entertaining.

    This is actually an anthology of three Eve & Roarke novellas, and one of them was previously released in the Out of This World anthology that came out ages ago: "Interlude in Death". I'd completely forgotten that story, though, so I didn't mind buying it again. The other two installments therein were "Midnight in Death" and "Haunted in Death", and of the three, I think I actually liked the one I'd read before the best. "Interlude in Death" is a rarity for the Eve & Roarke stories, as it actually takes them off-planet, and plays interesting games with the motives of an old, corrupt cop. "Midnight in Death" plays the card of "criminal Eve put away three years earlier escapes and comes back after her", but we've seen that before, and we see it again in the new full-length paperback, in fact. "Haunted in Death" was fun, though I think I'd have preferred less of the flirting with whether ghosts are real and more with a solid proof either way. ;)It is kind of fun to see Eve & Roarke tightened up to novella form, though. It pares the setting down its essentials, and if you're a long-time reader, at this point, that's really all you need. Three and a half stars.

    Three great novellas in the In Death series (7.5,12.5, 22.5)Interlude in DeathEve must go to the off planet resort, Olympus to give a speech. She meets a legendary cop that wants to put Roarke behind bars because Roarke's father was one of the crooks who got away. When the cop's bodyguard is murdered, Eve must find the killer before Roarke is charged .Midnight in DeathOne of the serial killers Dallas has already put away escapes. This killer has a list of who put him away starting with Judge Wainger who has shown up dead and tortured in Rockefeller Square and ending with Dallas. Dr. Mira is also on this list. This is a more personal one.Haunted in DeathEve Dallas gets a surprise when she goes to Twelve East Twelfth and finds a dead body with gunshots wounds and even more surprising is the over eighty year old skeleton. Ghosts couldn't have killed so, who was the murderer. A bit of paranormal and some old fashioned detective work in this short story.I do not usually enjoy short stories but these were interesting and great to read
