After the disappointment of the last book, Indulgence in Death I was crossing my fingers with this story. This book was tightly plotted and a joy to read. From the moment Eve learns about what Peabody overhead, she is ready to seriously kick some a$$ and the story goes into high gear and never looks back.
I liked that the book concentrated on Eve and her team's investigation. I loved seeing them work together and especially how Eve handled the dirty cops was awesome. We got to see more of Webster and I was happy to read what happened in his life. I also liked the interactions between him and Eve. The investigation of the case showed all the reasons why Eve is such a great cop. She is honest, wears her badge with pride, she doesn't misuse her position and does everything in her power to solve her cases.
The entire book was a sting operation wrapped in police procedure. The climax was a total, fist pumping high.
I LOVE this series! It is, by far, my favorite series...and this book is one of the BEST! There are none of them that I don't like, but this story stands out in a series that just gets better and better.
I HIGHLY reccommend it. Each book stands alone but if you read them in order you see the progress of Eve and Roarke, peek into the lives and pasts of the core characters, and as a bonus, get to witness an incredible love story as it evolves and unfolds!
Her own team's response to Eve's determination to bring down a dirty cop and her entire squad brought tears to my eyes! This was a great book with emotion and action.
Another great Eve Dallas action packed futuristic murder mystery from J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts. Roarke helps his wife with his technology "geekiness" along with all of the major characters I have come to know and look forward to in each book. A must read for Eve Dallas fans!
Peabody overhears an argument between two fellow officers that sets the tone for the rest of the book. As Peabody and Eve look into the actions of the two officers they find that it is worse then anyone could have anticipated.
I think this is one of the best books in this series.
