'Portrait In Death'
By: J.D. Robb; Nora Roberts
(Paperback / 368 Pages / Berkley Pub Group / ISBN: 0425189031 / $7.99)

Description:After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn't a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered. Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who's a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim's every move. And he has a mission: to own every beautiful young woman's innocence, to capture her youth and vitality-in one fateful shot.

Verdict:Writing as J.D. Robb, Nora Roberts once again brings forth a new and thrilling novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. Based around the exhaustive theories and leg work of Lieutenant Eve Dallas, 'Portrait of Death' is about a woman officer who has to hunt down a mysterious serial killer who offers his victims eternal youth by taking their lives. Photographic memories are what clues the police have to go on, yet they themselves hold more than just snapshots of a person's dying moments. They hold the so-called souls of the newly-departed, the essence, the virtual spirit of the deceased ... or at least that's what runs through the killers mind as they take them for their bizarre collection.
