Since the old topic for "In Death Questions" is fairly old, we thought it would be a good idea to start a new one.

So, if you'd like to reference the old topic for answers to questions that might have already been asked, please go here:

Can Anyone Tell Me? Questions about the books (2005 - 2010)

PLEASE search that topic FIRST, before asking a question here. Your question may have already been answered.

If you can't find it in that thread, feel free to ask your question about the "In Death Series" here.

Thanks!

AJ

This something that has bothered me and there may not be an answer.

In Betrayal, does anyone know why Gerade hated Roarke so much? Yost was hired to commit the murders to distract Roarke and make the theft easier. But Yost reflected on how if he killed Roarke within 2 months of the contract being fulfilled, he'd get 25 million. Why would they pay Yost so much to kill Roarke AFTER the theft (if the contract refers to the theft)?

Later, when the cops stopped the theft, cops were all over the place and there seemed to be no way to get out. Yet Gerade ran at Roarke with a knife, but killed Mick instead. Gerade was going to get caught, so why add murder to the charges?

Earlier, when Eve was asking Roarke about the men involved in the theft, Roarke said that he knew about Gerade. Eve asked if Gerade ever arranged for Roarke to steal anything, Roarke said that he "simply assisted another associate with the transportation."

So why would Gerade risk so much money and a murder charge? I don't know if I missed something or that's just "one of those things".

Thanks

Hi mog614,


Welcome to the site!!

I recently completed the timeline for Betrayal and so it is fairly fresh in my memory. I think the reason Gerade hated Roarke so much was jealousy over the fact that while he came from a privileged background and yet struggled continuously, Roarke had managed to overcome the disadvantages of his own childhood and achieve the sort of success that he had.. especially as Roarke and Gerade had known each other professionally way back when both were stealing for a living...

Thanks. That makes sense since, as I recall, Gerade seemed to be spoiled and immature, and a screw-up. I think it was said that his father had to bail him out.

If by "goes after" you mean "viciously attacks," then it's Visions.

Peabody is attacked both in Visions and Holiday... by the murderer

In Visions, she manages to fire her weapon when he tries to abduct her and so he leaves her, seriously injured, on the pavement, fleeing in his dark blue van...

In Holiday, she encounters 'Santa' on her doorstep, and manages to engage her communicator and tips off Eve about Santa's visit, and the gang arrives in time to rescue her...

Okay, could have worded it better, but thanks. I was thinking of the Santa in holiday. Although I am going to need to reread Visions for lack of remembering(:

This is driving me crazy...

Can anyone tell me in which book Eve finally gets a new office computer. I vaguely remember the scene, she walks in on a maintanence guy installing her computer thinking he is the "candy thief". He becomes her new best bud when she finds out he is simply installing her new computer. Later in the story, she takes her old computer home planning on destroying it with a sledgehammer? When Roarke see's it instead and starts to take it apart. I thought it was after "Visions" because McNab repaired her old one and said that she maybe could get a couple of days or so out of it.

Thanks

I found the answer to my own question and in doing so may have found a small Yanni.

The scene I was referring to was in Witness in Death. Eve finally gets a new computer, one like she has at home. However, less than a year later in Visions in Death, Eve calls in McNab to take a look at her computer and hopefully fix it. When he does he refers to it as obsolute.

Finding this scene was driving me crazy, but the reason I didn't find it was because it occurred earlier than Visions.

Thanks

That's not a YANNI. There is discussion about the fact that the units are produced with planned obsolescence. They make them cheap and breakable so that people will buy more.
