Three recovering addicts who are really turning their lives around are found brutally murdered in their apartment. Eve catches the case. The weird thing is the eye-witness describes the killer as a green skinned, red-eyed monster who capered and danced up the street after the murders. He leaves behind a message on the wall of the house inscribed in the victims' blood and signs it 'Dr. Chaos.'

This leads Eve and her team to a prominent rehab clinic and gives her a wealth of possible suspects. Only problem is no-one can figure out how the perp manages to look the way he does.

This takes place chronologically right after the most recent full length In death novel New York to Dallas (In Death). Eve is still recovering from her encounter with the baddie in that book and isn't exactly 100% when she starts this investigation. But I liked this one a bit better than that one even though this is only novella length. For one, Eve and Peabody are back together again and the story is chock full of the humor and one-liners that flow between them that was sorely missing in the last book. Also, Eve is once again terrified by Trina which is one of my favorite running gags in the whole series. And there is a great scene in Dickie Berenski's office where Eve, Peabody and Brenskie's newest tech have some great an funny dialogue.

There are enough macguffins to keep you guessing as to who the murderer is right til the end even though you eventually tip to how he does it.

Good entry. Probably my second favorite of the 'In Death' novellas after Interlude In Death(the one where Eve goes to the Police convention).

While I'm a die hard fan, I dislike when the publishing company releases the short story anthologies as "new" titles, and "The Unquiet" is being released 9/27/11. Why not plunk down $7.99 and get all 5 stories in a paperback(or Kindle), versus $16 or so for a CD of the same thing? Just a reminder for those hungry for a new title; the next hardcover will be out in Feb.,2012.

First of all, some people gave this story poor reviews because they didn't know this was from the usual November anthology and were unhappy because it's a short story. That's not what the story review is for. Others didn't like how "out there" the story is. This is the first Robb story regarding gene manipulation since Origin and why wouldn't some mad scientist try something this strange? Also, I went back and checked the reviews in Origin and only 3 out of a hundred reviews didn't like the story, yet both addressed a scientific taboo still in effect half a century later. Is it because one was about Beauty and the other is about the Beast? What I enjoyed about the story is that, as usual, even a short story by Robb is full of character (and characters), humor and keeps the continuity of the storyline running. I am so glad that Robb tries out new things in the stories. It keeps the series from growing stale. The rest of the stories weren't bad, either.

I've been an InDeath fan for years. Have purchased all the books, first in hard cover, then paperback. Have purchased them in cassett, then CD, now for Kindle. So clearly I'm a major diehard fan. But this story sucked. Stupid and farfetched -- WAY more farfetched than any of the others, and some of them are pretty "out there". I felt like Nora had run out of story ideas, happened to catch a certain movie, said "aha!" and voila, there was Chaos. Very disappointed. This is the only one that I won't bother with purchasing the audio version.

This is the third In Death book I've tried and I'm officially giving up on the series. The previous two books left me indifferent at best but this one underlined everything I didn't like about the series and didn't add anything to the "pros" column. I know this series has a big following and virtually every book is highly rated but I just don't see what other people see in it.

The main character, Eve Dallas, is extremely rude to everyone she meets, including her friends and her husband, Roarke. I know Robb wanted to make Eve a "strong" character but there's a difference between being strong and being a nasty b*tch. For example, in this book the first time we see Roarke it's when he stops by Eve's office to see if she wants to have lunch. Eve greets this man, her husband whom she supposedly loves and who is by all accounts the greatest man on the planet, by saying "what are you doing here?" Not "hello" or "isn't this a pleasant surprise" or anything even remotely friendly, just a demand for him to state his business. And she never gets any better throughout the whole book. She constantly treats Roarke like she treats everyone else; with hostile indifference. There's never, ever any sense that Eve actually cares about him.

And before anyone jumps up to defend Eve and say that she's just a no-nonsense cop or a tough independent woman or any other excuse, ask yourself this; if the roles were reversed and Eve was the male lead in the story and Roarke was the female, would you think this kind of treatment was appropriate?
