Immortal in Death by J.D. Robb
Set against the background of the youth-obsessed, drug-using fashion industry, this suspenseful tale sweeps from the glitzy to the seamy with all the flair and panache one has come to expect from Robb.

Nervous Nellie says…
Next on my re-read journey is Immortal in Death.
This book spotlights Mavis and hooks her with Leonardo. Mavis is such a great person to be around. Even though a grifter by trade, until meeting Dallas of course, she has the most up beat vision of life. Eve loves her and is the first real friend Eve can count among her posse.
Mavis is accused of killing a bad tempered, vindictive and jealous model. No possible way. None. Now, Mavis is scared out of her mind and Eve will prove her innocence come hell or high water. This is also the book where Roarke meets Mavis and starts the long road to stardom for her. What would we do without Roarke?
This is a good story, but it’s not as riveting as the ones before. That doesn’t mean that it’s not worth it’s salt, though. I enjoyed it and it created the link between Roarke and Mavis. All of Eve’s friends will someday be Roarke’s friends too. All these people that Eve brings with her into her relationship with Roarke makes him a happier man because none of them are after his money. They love him because they love Eve. I am fascinated at how the links are created and a family is built.
