Just as Lt. Eve Dallas, a New York City cop in 2060, starts to get a handle on a tricky double homicide, a quite pregnant friend-of-a-friend goes ominously missing in Born in Death, Nora Roberts’ latest book as J.D. Robb.

Notable Arcana
Even 50 years from now, women still give birth the old-fashioned way.

Studio Pitch
It’s Law & Order: SVU — in the future!

Lowdown
Dallas methodically cuts through her twin cases with barely a hitch, but she’s such a prickly-sharp, memorable character (one of many, in fact), you’ll enjoy watching her do it. Why she can’t be a 2006 cop, though, remains a mystery.
