    One thought on “The Unquiet”

    1. I’m not sure if it was deliberate, but there’s a lot of old movie homage in this collection -- we have “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” “The Shop Around the Corner” and “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.”Chaos in Death by J.D. Robb. This closely follows New York to Dallas and has some spoilers. It was a pretty good mystery -- though I have to wonder what tells Robb uses that make it so I always know who the bad guy is the second he or she appears -- but I found the resolution of the paranormal [...]

    2. I borrowed this book just for the J.D. Robb one. It was a particularly brutal killing from a serial killer. What a lovely reinterpretation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I guessed it out pretty easily but it was still done in an interesting manner and I love Ms. Robb's writing. Definitely an enjoyable read and a nice Eve tide over story until the next.Her Greatest TreasureThis one was weird. It's like Monkey's Paw by Edgar Allen Poe, but in a nice way. Some of the information revealed didn't exactl [...]

    3. Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidihis is anthology, with stories from five different New York Times bestselling authors. It includes an In Death novella, Chaos in Death, by J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts. Each story has a bit of a spooky or ‘from the other side’ kind of feel and I will break them all down for you by story nowChaos in Death (3 Star rating)In Death, Book #33.5By J.D. RobbAuthor’s website: jdrobb/Three reforming drug users are found dead and meticulously placed for discovery. Eve D [...]

    4. The Unquiet (In Death)Jekyll and Hyde, good and evil, and control and lack of control. Five story of control issues. Eve and Roarke must find a kill who is strong and out of control. OK stories.

    5. Chaos in Death by JD Robb- I was really happy to see the other regular characters back in this story, I missed them in the last book. I liked this story right up until the end. the paranormal doesn't work for me in this series of books. Eve Dallas is just to grounded for that to work for me in her stories. This story would have worked so much better with a non-paranormal ending. Her Greatest Treasure by Mary Blayney- This is one of the type of stories that you can enjoy but its not neccesarily a [...]

    6. I really liked this book. I enjoyed all the stories and the interesting turns they took. Every one of them kept me interested and the imagination and creativity was great. I wouldn't have been able to think these things through. Chaos was a great twist to a known story and I didn't even figure it out til the end. It was kind of a 'duh' moment. This was the suspense and mystery story. Blayney's story was good too. I liked the coin and the 'wish' along with the ending. It was a perfect HEA. Dear O [...]

    7. Five authors, five paranormal short stories in one book which will keep a reader glued to the pages for several hours - definitely a recommendation for me, as none of the stories were badly written or boring.J.D.Robb, Chaos in Death: Eve and Roarke at their best, chasing a murderer around New York. It's always amazing how much tension and story, and how much of the dynamics between the now well known main characters, the author can pack into a short story.Mary Blaynes, Her Greatest Treasure: The [...]

    8. 'Chaos in Death' by J. D. Robb - 2 stars'Her Greatest Treasure' by Mary Blayney - 2 stars'Dear One' by Patricia Gaffney - 3 stars'The Unforgiven' by Ruth Ryan Langan - 1 star'His Brother's Keeper' by Mary McComas - 3 stars

    9. 3 stars - Futuristic/Romantic Suspense/Mystery/Crime/Science Fiction/Thriller NovellaRating/review for J.D. Robb's Chaos in Death.

    10. Another short story collection. I just read the In Death book, "Chaos in Death". A very strange case. While it mentioned the previous books storyline, it didn't really add anything to the series. You won't be missing anything if you skip this book while you're reading the series.

    11. This one was a little far out there and since it is one of the in-between, short story installments, it was a little choppy. Still a great read but out of Eve's 'normal' vein.

    12. All j.d. robbI like All of Nora Roberts and j.d. robb'sBooks : they keep me excitedFrom beginning to end.Always a pleasure!!!!

    13. I only read Chaos in Death. Eh. I could take or leave this one. Wasn't bad, wasn't great. Figured it would be like Dr Jekle and Mr Hyde. Was correct. Dots were too easy to follow.

    14. Originally posted at Herding Cats & Burning SoupThis turned out to be a delightful anthology. They are so hit or miss but this one worked for me. All of the stories were interesting, different enough from one another so not to blend into each other and were quite creative. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another anthology with these authors.Chaos in Death by J.D. RobbOh I love me some Roarke! The In Death series is hands down one of my favorites but this little taste seemed a bit off to me. I [...]

    15. Chaos in Death - J.D. Robb - 2/5 - In this one, a killer is described as looking like a demon and is therefore very difficult to find. Very short police procedural with what amounts to very little excitement, very little character interaction and quite a bit of paranormal. Not my favorite. I just don't like the blending of paranormal/sci-fi with police drama.cially with cynical Eve. In this case a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde like situation and a transformation into a green-skinned monster right in f [...]

    16. September 2013: Only re-read "Chaos in Death" as part of my In Death re-read. I pretty much bought this when it first came out, read "Chaos in Death," and then put it on my TBR shelves. I dug it out so I could check off two more RITA nominees from the list. I find it fascinating that the full length 'Eve Dallas' novels are pretty straightforward and grounded in reality, but the novellas have a more paranormal element to them. "Chaos in Death" is a take on (view spoiler)[Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ( [...]

    17. It is rare that I give a book five stars out of five, however, this one definitely deserves it.This novel incorporates five stories, lead by a short story by J D Robb on her In Death, Dallas Lieutenant Eve, series. This, however, does not mean that all those stories involve murder and mayhem. Far from it. But let's look at the stories one by one and the relevant authors penning them.First off, as already mentioned, is J D Robb with her story, Chaos In Death. It appears that the book title is der [...]

    18. Five stories by well known romance authors with a dash of the supernatural:Chaos in Death by J. D. RobbThree recovering addicts are brutally murdered and posed against the wall of their squat. One is missing an eye, one an ear and the other - you guessed it - their tongue. The disturbing thing is the killer was seen and also captured on a surveilance camera. Lt. Eve Dallas can't believe her eyes when she view the camera footage. The murderer is a capering, gleeful, dancing monster. Eve begins to [...]

    19. I rated the stories I've read so far. When I read all the stories and think of the permanent ratings, like I plan to eventually, I'll rate the entire anthology. J.D. Robb - Chaos in Death - 3 starsTags: futuristic, mystery, romanceI liked the explanation for the unquiet that was used as the title for the entire anthology. I liked the buildup and seeing some recurring characters like Morris, Dickhead and Mavis that I missed in the last novel. I also liked Eve and Roarke playful and sexy as always [...]

    20. An anthology of five short paranormal stories that veer from quiet to the not-so-quiet.Series:"Chaos in Death" (In Death, 33.5)"Her Greatest Treasure" (Poppy's Coin, 5)The StoriesJ.D. Robb's "Chaos in Death" tries to identify a monstrous Dr. Chaos who gleefully murders people associated with an addiction program in New York City. Leave it to Lt. Dallas to call on all her friends to contribute their particular skills and knowledge. Fans of the series don't want to miss this one as there are a cou [...]

    21. คุุ้มค่าราคากับ 5 เรื่องสั้นของนักเขียน 5 ท่าน ที่จริงตั้งใจจะอ่าน in death แต่เมื่อมีเรื่องอื่นมาให้ลองอ่านก็ไม่เลวเหมือนกัน1. Chaos In Death by J.D. Robbเนื้อเรื่องคล้าย ๆ กับนวนิยายคลาสสิค "Dr.Jekyll&Mr.Hyde" [...]

    22. 5 short stories/novellas - very uneven. Buy (and read) this for the JD Robb novella. The others are only okay. "Chaos in Death" by JD Robb was good. This one is between New York to Dallas & Celebrity in Death. Here Eve is pursuing a crazed killer with a twist that harkens back to those horror movies I watched as a kid."Her Greatest Treasure" by Mary Blayney - this story was very slow-moving. It is apparently a continuing storyline revolving around the coin (which keeps appearing in various c [...]

    23. The Unquiet, anthology with JDRobb tilted Chaos in Death. Lt. Eve Dallas gets notified that a triple homicide has occured in an abandoned building. Two males and one female each murdered differently but with one exception. The killer took one ear from one victim, one eye from another and the tongue from the third victim. Hear no evil, say no evil, see no evil so Lt. Dallas surmises. A typical day in the hood? Not so, when an eyewitness gives a description of a monster with grotesque features and [...]

    24. This collection of short stories headlined with Chaos in Death by J.D. Robb which was just as good as all her futuristic crime stories in her Eve Dallas series. This time it was about a strange green skinned disfigured serial killer that seemed to be a version of Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde.Then Dear One by Patricia Gaffney was a romance about a phone psychic and her connections to both a grandfather and his grandson. It was ok, but a little cheesy (which is how I find a lot of romances and why I prefer [...]

    25. With four short stories in this book, the only one I can rate with three stars is Chaos in Death. The other stories did not interest me, I only read them because of the In Death book. Chaos in Death takes a look in to a mad scientist using the research of another doctor to create a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Eve is called to the scene of the murder of three dead former drug addicts. Witnesses stating the killer was green and danced his way down the street while laughing. As Eve and Peabody works t [...]

    26. I usually have trouble rating anthologies because the I want to give the stories inside different ratings."Chaos in Death" by J. D. Robb worked really well for me, as usual. Robb excels at short stories, rarely trying to cram too much in. (Although she has advantages; she's not trying to create characters or setting from scratch.)I sampled the other stories, but I only actually skimmed through one other story, the one by Mary Kay McComas.Mary Blayney's story: Blah. Even more boring than the last [...]
