Featured Book: Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb

Brotherhood in Death (In Death #42) by J. D. Robb, published Februry 2, 2016 by Berkley

Sometimes brotherhood can be another word for conspiracy...

Book description: Dennis Mira just learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent to sell their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head. (publisher)

The victim: "former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira, who mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis."

Conflict: ...the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate" 

Opening paragraph (Ch. 1):
After a long, tedious day -- the first half spent in court, the second half with paperwork - Lieutenant Eve Dallas prepared to shut it all down. 
At the moment all she wanted out of life was a quiet evening with her husband, the cat, and a glass - or two - of wine. Maybe a vid, she thought as she grabbed her coat, if Roarke hadn't brought too much work home.

Harvee,

This one sounds dark and disturbing. I think I'd read more.

I've never read a Robb book, but I see many bloggers give them great reviews.
