Big Jack by J.D. Robb
Nora Robert's also writes as J.D. Robb.
I just discovered Library 2 Go, Downloadable Media, at my local library. I like the In Death series and had seen Big Jack in the bookstore. When I found it on Library 2 Go I checked it out. Books from Library 2 Go can be downloaded to your computer and are available for two weeks. Big Jack is a story that was previously published in the anthology Remember When. It is also a sequel to Hot Rocks, a Nora Roberts novel set in the present.
On the In Death time line Big Jack takes place shortly after Roarke learns the truth about his Mother. Peabody has just been promoted to Detective and this is her first case working with Eve in her new position.
Samantha Gannon has written a book about a diamond robbery that took place in 2003. One fourth of the diamonds were never recovered. When she arrives home from a two-week book tour she finds her apartment trashed and her house sitter murdered. Eve draws the case. You can read the story of the diamond robbery in Hot Rocks. The final solution to the robbery fits well as a side story in the In Death series.
Check to see if your library has a subscription to Library 2 Go. As long as you do not mind reading on a computer it is a good way to get books without every leaving home.
Berkley published Big Jack by J.D. Robb in 2010.
