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 is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.

Reva Ewing, a security expert and former secret service agent, finds out her husband is cheating on her with her best friend. When she breaks into the friend's home to confront them, she finds them already dead. Or so she says when Roarke and Eve arrive after receiving a call from her mother, Roarke's admin assistant. Reva is also an employee of Roarke's, so from the very beginning, Lt. Eve Dallas has to deal with concerns for the personal connections as she tries to solve these murders. As the investigation digs into the past of the victims, new details of Eve's own past surface and Roarke and Eve face the toughest challenge of their marriage so far - can their love survive the difference in their views of right and wrong?

I found this book to be particularly gut-wrenching to read in several places - the intensity of the disagreement between Roarke and Eve, the scene where she confronts Mira with a lie about Mira's past, and the scenes between Feeney and Roarke all added layers to some of my very favorite characters ever.

I'll say it again. Everyone of these is better than the last. Love this series so much I read the book sparingly so I can enjoy them and not get to the end.

A former member of the Secret Service, and security specialist for Roarke Emterprises was thought to have killed her husband and her best friend. Lieutenant Eve Dallas doesn't think it is a jealousy killing, she thinks it has to do with techno-terrorist

I am hooked on J. D. Robb's In Death series. I have been very impressed with Nora's development of Eve. She is right on. I find I am amazed that Nora keeps coming back with excellent plots and clever stories. I really love this series.

Reva used to be a member of the Secret Service, and then a security specialist until she ended up finding her husband and best friend dead. Lieutenant Eve Dallas thinks there's more to this than jealousy. All of the husband's files in his computer were corrupted. Reva and her husband had been under a government contract to develop a program that would shield against technological terrorists. Eve must solve this mystery before the whole country gets affected!

Great book. I've never read Roberts writing as Robb but it was actually a really good treat. I like that it takes place in the future but it's unbelievable! She makes it interesting and adds some twists that are even better.

I didn't like this book all that much. Maybe if I had read this series from the beginning I would feel differently. The story jumped right in with very little set-up of the characters, which is fine seeing as there are several books before this one. One thing that annoyed me was the author used several words without explaining what they were (the story takes place in 2059 I think). Also, just so future readers are aware, there was A LOT of swearing in this book. It is possible to read this book without having read the others and still understand what is going on because the plot (a case getting solved by the main character who is a cop) does have a beginning, middle and end.

This was pretty good. I liked reading the issues between Eve and Roarke; it shows that they are far from perfect. It made me hope for a good, and realistic, resolution and I think it was accomplished. I also enjoyed the mystery, even though I guessed an aspect of it.

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)

9 Loyalty
10 Witness

18 Divided
19 Visions
20 Survivor
21 Origin
22 Memory
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)

A midnight call from Roarke's Administrative Assistant, Caro, leads Eve and Roarke to the scene of a murder. Caro's daughter, Reva Ewing, tracked her cheating husband to his girlfriend's apartment only to find them dead. All evidence points to Reva being set up as the killer. Eve and Roarke, along with Peabody, McNab, and Feeney, uncover government intrigue, spies, and a computer virus. But the most shocking detail that is uncovered is a secret from Eve's past...a secret that may drive Roarke and Eve apart.

This book started off strong with the latest murders in the very first pages. But as the mystery continued, I had a hard time concentrating on it. There were lots of twists and turns, most of which I didn't see coming; yet it wasn't a favorite in this series. But, the relationship part of the story was excellent. Roarke and Eve are divided when a detail from Eve's past is uncovered. How they work through their disagreement makes this book a strong entry in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.

As with all the "Death" series, I enjoyed the book. Robb has a way of making you see the story as you read it, which makes for a great story. The characters come to life and I am always trying to figure out who the bad guy really is! A definite read for those who like thrillers with a little steamy romance.

This was the 33rd book I read this year! When I saw the hardcover on sale at my local library I couldn't resist snatching it up to share. I have registered this copy at bookcrossing.com and it has accompanying bookcrossing labels on and inside the book. It's also an ex-library copy and has library markings as well. Otherwise it's in tip-top shape & ready for a new home!

I'm reading these books completely out of order. I read Naked In Death & its direct sequel quite a few years ago (when they were first released) and then read this one, which I think is #10 in the series. Surprisingly enough I wasn't confused all that much and actually remembered the dynamics of the Eve/Rourke relationship all these years later. This book features many secondary characters I was unfamiliar with but they came "alive" so well it didn't matter after a few pages. The story focuses on the double murder of the husband (and his lover) of one of Rourke's trusted employees. During the course of the investigation Rourke and Eve are "divided", as the title suggests, by their opposing views on revenge. Eve is forced to face her brutal past and it's all quite harrowing. A harrowing read laced with moments of humor. I enjoyed it lots.
