This is my all-time favorite series, but STRANGERS IN DEATH wasn't my favorite book. Although the mystery is interesting, as always, there wasn't much character development, and most of my favorite characters (Mavis, Summerset, McNab, etc.) are rarely mentioned.

Overall, you won't want to miss this installment if you're a fan of the series, but this isn't the best place for a newcomer to begin reading.

Lt. Eve Dallas and her crew once again have to unravel a mystery surrounding the death of a prominent man. This book was not as action-filled as many others in the series, but the story was engaging and moved at a fast pace. Very enjoyable read.

This is one of the few series that I will purchase new in hardback. This title is the only one that has been less than satisfying.

There is less action, sex (if you care about that), character growth/change than any other in the series, IMHO. I didn't care much about the victim or the villain. Surely hope that this series is not dying off because I love the characters but it seemed as if the author owed her publisher a book so she scrawled out 350+ pages.

I didn't hate it because I love the characters, major and minor, but it didn't grab me and if this had been the first title I had read, I probably wouldn't have read another.

I didn't think it was the typical Dallas. A little slow read, but ok.
