Rent Origin in Death (In Death #21)
Unpleasant secrets lurk within a high-profile cosmetic surgery practice in the 21st installment of the near-feature In Death mystery series, written by romance author Nora Roberts's alter ego, J.D. Robb. After celebrity Lee-Lee Ten is assaulted, she takes refuge at the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery. When questioning Ten about the crime proves unproductive, NYPD Lieutenant Eve Dallas attempts to gain information from Dr. Icove himself...only to discover the doctor's corpse, a scalpel embedded in his chest. An investigation into Dr. Icove--the so-called 'Dr. Perfect'--peels back the layers of darkness lying beneath his overly pristine public fa'ade.
