Amazon has done it again! This product description was posted on the German site. Looking forward to it!

"Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she's managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It's a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody?drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director's luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. Harris had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she's at the center of a crime scene?and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. "

I ready for it - only 7 months! <sigh>

I can't wait either. There is too much time between books. Will Nora do a novella this time. I have not seen the short book she has come out with the last few times. It is hard to find really good books and the Death Series is one of the best.

This isn't a new book it's a retitle like from NY to Dallas.

I'm not sure I understand you. From NY to Dallas WAS a new novel - and a very good one. Celebrity in Death starts soon after at the premier of the movie made from the Icove - cloaning case. If you go to the JD Robb website you can read an excerpt from it. There was a compilation published a few months ago that included all of her more recent novellas, so that may be what you are referring to. I'm ready for a new Eve and Roark book. I don't usually care for Robb's novellas. They are usually part of a fantasy or sci-fi genre anthology and she seems to be forced to really step away from the world she has created for 2060. They usually don't progress the story along and include too many bizarre situations (even for a future placed series). I read them, but don't usually buy them...

Blue Lady, you are right, of course. I am interested to see what Arlene comes back with after her research.

I hate myself for saying I really didn't enjoy Celebrity all that much. Very little friction, very little "plot" and not enough interest. I unfortunately figured it out...something I hardly ever do in a JDR book. It was almost as if it were one from column A, one from column and then a paragraph or two ad libbed. Nora can do ever so much better.
