I love Robb's "in Death" series. This one is excellent. Although I will admit that I figured out "whodunnit" rather early on - earlier than I usually manage with Robb's books. Despite this, I enjoyed this one A LOT!

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.

J.D. Robb has done it again. What a terrific thriller!

A blast from the past for Eve Dallas. She was fostered as a child in Texas with a crazy, brutal woman (Trudy) who has a young son who did his best to help Eve when he could get away with it without his mother knowing. Out of the blue, Trudy shows up in Eve's office. When Eve, kicks her out, she tries to shake Roarke down for $2 million. Sometime following this, Trudy is murdered and it is Eve's job to track down the murderer. She does a spectacular job of unraveling the clues to unearth the killer.

Great book from page one!

I absolutely love the "...IN DEATH" series, and MEMORY IN DEATH was no exception. It's nearly Christmas 2059 in New York, and Eve and Roarke are planning another large holiday party. As Eve deals with her job with the police department, she suddenly gets a blast from her past.

Trudy Lombard, who served as Eve's foster mother for six months right after she was found bloody and alone in Dallas, Texas, has come to her office--supposedly to catch up on old times. When Eve panics and throws her out, Trudy makes her true motives known when she visits Roarke at his office, and demands two million dollars to keep quiet about Eve's troubled past. Roarke refuses, threatens Trudy into leaving them alone, and advises her that her best course of action would be to return, quietly, to Texas.

That, of course, isn't the end of Trudy Lombard. When Eve decides to face Trudy one last time, to insist that she'll get no monetary gain from either her or her husband, they find Trudy dead in her hotel room--and her distraught son, Bobby, and his wife, Zana, are both horrified and heartbroken.

Eve sets out to find out who killed her former foster mother, while battling with the horrendous memories that surface from Trudy's sudden reappearance into her life. As she struggles to balance her home life with Roarke with the death of a woman who only added to her pain and misery all those years ago, Eve is once again faced with her past, and forced to overcome it.

MEMORY IN DEATH is another winner in J.D. Robb's series. You don't want to miss the heartbreak, persistence, and tenacity of this latest thriller!

Eve Dallas is at her best in this book. I really enjoyed it. This time her family is involved in murder and blackmail. A very hard book to put down.

This is a great series if you love solving mysteries, and can handle a little blood and guts. This is the first book in the series I was able to guess who the killer was before the end.

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges thirty-seven stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa." But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together. Instantly, she's thrown back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl-trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling.

Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve's husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise-and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office, demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife's childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door-and makes it clear that she'd be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again.

But just a few days later, Trudy's found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy's bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman's hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim. Whoaaaaaaaaaaa keep em coming J.D.Robb (Nora) excellent reading!

Definitely NOT one of my favorite In Death books, but it's nice to see what the characters are up to. I found it quite predictable, and easy to put down.

I loved this In Death book because it was the first that gave you a bit of Eve and Roarke's relationship during some down time - Christmas Eve. Eve can't get any work done, so you get them hanging around their beautiful house - talking and other things....
