When a famous thespian is killed right before her eyes, New York detective Eve Dallas takes a new place in crime as both officer and witness to murder in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling In Death series.

The opening night of the revival of Agatha Christie's "Witness for the Prosecution" at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death right on center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high-profile celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness--and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle. The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone and everything...and in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth--and really good acting...

Couldn't disagree more with comment from 7626dee. I believe Eve's past and the battle with her duty at times, makes her much more believable. Her sometimes tough stand shows her humanity. Love the series and often reread many of the titles. Keep them coming J. D.

The dead guy is bad but we must find justice-I guess- but the flashbacks seem so out of place with our very hardboiled detective. Nora Roberts keeps popping to the fore trying to romanticize and humanize our heroine. Result is a very unbalanced personality. I like the hardboiled side.

one of the better stories in this series so far. It's a good puzzle balanced with the development of the relationship between Eve and Roarke.
