Excellent twists and turns, wonderful storytelling! JD Robb/Nora Roberts nows how to tell a story. I'm a romance/mystery/sci fi reader and she intertwines all three genres into a tale that keeps you thoroughly engaged. Thanks JD Robb/Nora Roberts for such pleasurable hours of entertainment!

This series is a romance mystery set in 2058. Lt. Eve Dallas is a hardworking likeable character and her husband is "dreamy". I love this series and the characters - even the bad guys.

Futuristic series that uncovers a world where technology can create beauty and youth, but passion and greed can destroy them...They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides, a brilliant engineer, and infamous lawyer, and a controverial politician. Three stranger with nothing in common---and no bovious reaons for killing themselves. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopisies revealed small burns on the brains of the victims.

#4 In Robert's "In Death" series...

SciFi meets police mystery as mind control machines make happy powerful people commit suicides. Its better than that description sounds, lol - really, a good fast read...where the Evil Mad Scientist isn't revealed until the end, and she gives you a couple of good false leads to follow to maintain the surprise.

As usual, Eve Dallas' hubby Roarke can't help but be involved, because of course, he manufactures some of the machines Lieutenant Dallas finds suspect.

I'm hooked on the In Death series, even though I think all the profanity and sexual detail is unnecessary. I enjoy the futuristic parts of the stories.

This series just keeps getting better and better, and RAPTURE IN DEATH is no exception.

Now that Eve Dallas and Roarke are finally married, they're enjoying a much needed vacation/honeymoon. But death seems to find Eve no matter where she is, and a different planet is no exception. When one of Roarke's techs ends up dead, from a supposed suicide, Eve starts to wonder if everyting is exactly what it seems.

And when they return to New York, and more prominent people end up dead by their own hand, Dallas has a hard time convincing those around her that their suicides were actually murder.

You won't go wrong with this series, and watching the interaction between newly wed Eve and Roarke is a wonderful thing. The fact that every mystery of every book is also well-developed and all-too-believable is an added bonus!

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.

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.

5 Ceremony

This is the 4th book in the series of Eve Dallas, police lieutenant in the year 2056. Mood-altering drugs are legal, prostitution is licensed, virtual-reality games have replaced TV sets for entertainment. This time around, Eve has married her soul mate, Roarke, and is caught up in the puzzling suicide of a technician who's been working on Roarke's unfinished space resort. The young tech, Eve learns, had cheerfully hanged himself after a VR trip. Back on Earth, autopsies from two similar suicides reveal a pin-sized burn on the brains of the victims. All clues point to a deadly subliminal message in a VR toy?one that Roarke produces. Great book and can't wait for #5.

They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common--and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopsies revealed small burns on the brains of the victims. Was it a genetic abnormality or a high-tech method of murder? Eve's investigation turned to the provocative world of virtual reality games--where the same techniques used to create joy and desire could also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction...

They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides, strangers with nothing in common aand no obvious reason for suicide. Lt Eve Dallas is suspicious and is proven right with autopsy results that show a burn in the brain. Geneteic or high-tech? The investigation turns to virtual reality. Can games used to create joy be used for destruction?

While on her honeymoon with husband, Roarke, Lt. Eve Dallas investigates an apparent suicide. Returning to her job, she discovers a rash of suicides where the victims have no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Finding these deaths suspicious, she digs deeper. With the help of Roarke and Peabody, Eve must prove that these suicides are actually murder.

This was a good story that was hard to put down. I love the relationship between Eve and Roarke and see it becoming stronger with each book. I just wish there could have been a couple more suspects in this mystery. The villain was obvious but it was still a good read. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

I love each of these audio books, and I don't repost them because I listen to them again and again. This is one the earlier ones in the series, and it's interesting to see how the author sets up events that I know will have bearing later on in the "continuing story." As always, the narrator is terrific -- wish I could search books by narrator because Susan Erikson is so terrific!
