Another winner in the "...IN DEATH" series, CEREMONY IN DEATH finds Eve Dallas dealing with things that mere science can't explain. Although Dallas believes that evil comes in the form of men, you'll get a little surprise when you find out exactly how other characters from the series, including Roarke and Dr. Mira, feel about it.

Another great read, with high emotion, action, suspense, and romance.

This is an awesome series!

Enjoyed this book very much. The plot centers around witchcraft, Satanism and Wiccans. I found the end more satisfying that some of the earlier ones in the "In Death" series, although I've enjoyed them all!

I love all the J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts) books which happen in a future time when people live much longer than now but there are few things we take for granted now such as "real" meat, coffee, etc. Eve Dallas is married to the world's richest man and also an extremely good Detective.

Love this series... but I have to space the books in between other reads so as to not get to accustomed to the writing style. Eve and Roarke are the best super couple around!

Somehow I wound up with the abridged version of the audiobook. I'm assuming this is why I never really connected with this story. There seemed to be alot missing, based on the flow of previous books. Everything was rushed. Still an ok story, just not my favorite.

If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.

I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.

Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):

1 Naked
2 Glory
3 Immortal
4 Rapture
5 Ceremony
6 Vengence
7 Holiday
7.5 Midnight in Death (Silent Night Anthology)
8 Conspiracy
9 Loyalty
10 Witness
11 Judgement
12 Betrayal
12.5 Interlude in Death (Out of this World Anthology)
13 Seduction
14 Reunion
15 Purity
16 Portrait
17 Imitation
17.5 Remember When (1st part by Nora, 2nd by JD Robb - stories are connected)
18 Divided
19 Visions
20 Survivor
21 Origin
22 Memory
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)
23 Born
24 Innocent
24.5 Eternity in Death (Dead in the Night Anthology)
25 Creation
26 Strangers
26.5 Ritual in Death (Suite 606 Anthology)
27 Salvation
28 Promises
29 Kindred

This book was very very good and the story plot was excellent. Nora Roberts is an excellent writer. I love all her books and have not found one that I did not like.
I urge all mystery readers to pickup a copy of her books and find out for themselves.

I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York City is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.

Eve Dallas is ordered to investigate the death of a fellow officer. She is not allowed to tell Captain Feeney about her investigation, because the officer was his friend. This investigation leads Eve and Peabody to a Wiccan Coven and then to a satanic cult.

Though it was very easy to figure out who was the killer, the book was still very entertaining. We learn a little more about Peabody's background in this book. Her character is getting more and more interesting. We are also introduced to a teenager named Jamie who wants to be a cop when he grows up. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile
In the near future (2058) of this science fiction police procedural, NYPD Lt. Eve Dallas investigates the death of a fellow officer, who is suspected of drug dealings with a local coven of Wiccans. Talking-computers and computer jammers help her pursue her witch suspect, who uses the same devices to keep the lieutenant at bay. Emphasis on action over detailed description makes this attention-grabbing abridgment one you sit in the driveway to finish. Transition music and distant voices via phones and intercoms add radio-theater ambiance. As the listener wonders if Dallas's badge will shield her from the witches' knives, the cops, whose characters snap to life in Susan Ericksen's no-nonsense delivery, convince us that evil has met its match.

Not among my favorite of the Eve Dallas books. Too much of the arcane for my taste. Still, it has a very nice denouement so I'm keeping it. Worth your time if you like futuristic murder mysteries.

this is a 39 book series
that i started reading thru my LIBRARY
borrowing to read on my KINDLE

they did not have books 1-5 in the series
and no USED book shops did either

BUT AWESOME
PBS had them
and i got them and found out how the series began
and how the characters related in the beginning

trying to decide
if i ""NEED"" this series in paperback form on my bookshelves....might just need the rest of the books

Conducting a top secret investigation into a fellow officer put Eve Dallas in the middle of a religious cult who belives in killing and sex as a way to worship. Another thriller that gets Eve almost killed in book 5 of the series. Good and fast reading summer book.
