Another awesome installment of the life of New York's finest and her husband. The identity of the killer came as a shock.
I love all the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb!
Description/plot: When a cop killer cuts loose in a club called Purgatory, Detective Eve Dallas descends into an underground criminal hell.
Death starts in the book, leading Eve into the world of dirty cops and deadly criminals. This is a subject relevant to today. Whenever there is a lot of money, unfortunately there will be someone willing to tarnish themself for some of it. The ending is a corkscrew in this book. You will be surprised who the murderer really is. Fast paced and enjoyable. Now on to Book 12!!!!
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):
7.5 Midnight in Death (Silent Night Anthology)
12.5 Interlude in Death (Out of this World Anthology)
17.5 Remember When (1st part by Nora, 2nd by JD Robb - stories are connected)
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)
24.5 Eternity in Death (Dead in the Night Anthology)
26.5 Ritual in Death (Suite 606 Anthology)
29.5 Missing in Death (The Lost Anthology)
Great book as always. Love these.
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.
love all of her books by her name of J.D. Robb have finally collected all of them and now have stqarted at the first one and reading all of them again.
Another great Eve Dallas mystery.
Detective Eve Dallas must solve the murder of a cop found bludgeoned to death in an uptown strip club. Great addition to this series which just gets better and better.
This was a page turner. trying to figure out who the killer is makes it almost impossible to put down.
Another great J.D. Robb book. I love the interaction between Eve Dallas and husband Roarke. The other characters come alive also.
This whole series is great....this one kept me up to all hours of the night trying to figure out how Eve would catch her killer....a real page turner for sure.
Eve is forced to investagate the cops. She must find the leak and plug it.
Gritty, police procedural, futuristic, fast-paced
NOMBER 12 IN J.D. ROBBS IN DEATH SERIES
Typical of JD Robb... great mystery wrapped up with great characters!
Another great IN Death book! Very wonderful!
Nora Roberts writting as J.D. Robb in a futuristic mystery series. Lieutenant Eve Dallas, Rourke and the other characters are very enjoyable.
The story is unique, witty & hooks you after the 1st page! there is a lot of steamy action between Eve & Roarke (again) but the story has a great plot, in depth characters & great interaction between them.
Very good. I am loving the development of the characters.
Another book in the futuristic series. When a cop killer cuts loose in a club called Purgatory, New York detective Eve Dallas descends into an undeground criminal hell... In an uptown strip joint, a cop is found bludgeoned to death. The weapon's a baseball bat.
The motive's a mystery. Romance, murder and suspense....very good.
number 11 in the Eve Dallas series.
From the publisher, "When a cop killer cuts loose in a club called Purgatory, NY detective Eve Dallas descends into an underground crimnal hell.." Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb. Great!
The 11th book in the Eve Dallas series.
Written under the pen name J.D. Robb, this futuristic mysteryDset in New York City, year 2059Dshowcases veteran writer Nora Roberts's skills at their best. It's as tough, smart, sassy and successful as its heroine, police lieutenant Eve Dallas. The story opens in the upscale nightclub Purgatory, where Dallas discovers the brutally slain body of a fellow officer; another cop is murdered soon thereafter. Both men, it appears, were on the take, and both were connected to elusive criminal Max Ricker. Dallas's investigation, which exposes crime and police corruption, puts both her reputation and life in danger. To make matters worse, Purgatory is owned by her own millionaire husband, RoarkeDa business associate of Ricker's before turning legitimateDand the overlap of professional and personal lives adds extra fireworks to an already tempestuous marriage. Robb's plotting is precise and fast paced, creating a satisfying mystery full of lively, credible twists. Secondary charactersDa troubled female police captain, an Internal Affairs cop with a leftover crush on DallasDare as well-drawn as Dallas herself, a tough but endearing 21st-century woman. Sexy, surprising and often funny power struggles between Dallas and Roarke are the tasty icing on this extremely well-made fictional "cake," which is just the right confection for lazy late-summer reading.
Another great entry (the eleventh) in J.D. Robb's addictive Eve Dallas series.
Nora Roberts writing under JD Robb name. Book 11 of the Lt. Eve Dallas "In Death" series.
This was definitely one of my favorites in this series. I read current books in this series and then started from the beginning as I obtained the first books. It brings to light the story lines and completes chacaters and relationships I'd wanted to understand better. Bravo!
From the back cover:
In an uptown strip joint, a cop is found bludgeoned to death. The weapon's a baseball bat. The motive's a mystery. It's a case of serious overkill that pushes Eve Dallas straight into overdrive. Her investigation uncovers a private club that's more than a hot spot. Purgatory's a last chance for atonement where everyone is judged. Where your ultimate fate depends on your most intimate sins. And where one cop's hidden secrets are about to plunge innocent souls into vice-ridden damnation...
