Chaos in Death by J.D. Robb

Chaos in Death (In Death, #33.5) - J.D. Robb

Three former junkies are slaughtered in their flop. All were firmly on the road to recovery, employed, doing therapy sessions in the local clinic and center...So who would want to kill them with the glee the killer must have felt, judging by the state of the crime scene and the testimony of a witness who saw the abnormally disfigured killer laughing and dancing down the street afterward?


I liked this Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde twist. I had no idea who the killer was (I was wrong with both my suspects), the short glimpse into the killer's mind at the beginning was nicely twisted, the plot and mystery were intriguing, and it was nice seeing most of the gang back in their element.

The story definitely had the potential for a full-length novel, though, yet it didn't feel crammed or "busy". I just wouldn't mind reading a lengthier rendition.
