"Eternity in Death" (short story) by J. D. Robb



I was interested to see that the anthology in which this Eve Dallas story appears, Dead of Night, contained "four all-new paranormal stories." The Eve Dallas series is definitely not paranormal; it's a futuristic mystery series set in New York City. How, I wondered, was the paranormal going to fit in?

It turned out to be a fun read. A wealthy young celebrity is found dead in her luxurious Manhattan apartment, completely drained of blood and with two holes in her neck. It looks to everyone as though the victim has been attacked by a vampire, but the ever practical detective Eve Dallas won't have any of that nonsense. She sets out to find the killer in her usual tenacious style, but along the way even she will find a few things to send a shiver creeping down her spine...

I continue to enjoy this series, and now that I know about the short stories and where they fit in (thank you, Fantastic Fiction!), I can catch up on the ones I missed and read the rest in order. I hate reading things out of order!
