# 12 in the JD Robb/Nora Roberts series.
Well, though I tend to like the "In Death" series, this one wasn't my favorite. I thought the plotline was a little heavy handed, and the villains were fairly obvious. I was never surprised and felt that the characters should have been able to find the origin of the threat much sooner.
This is my least fave of the books, so far, but its still worth a read if you've already got some sympathy for the characters, but, if you haven't read the series, despite the fact that they are all good stand alone novels and don't require you to have read them in order, I wouldn't start with this one.
Not that they're not all pretty good, but best books I've so far read in this series IMHO are #1 Naked In Death, #21 Origin In Death, #9 Loyalty In Death, and #18 Divided In Death...even #19 Visions In Death.
Love this series and this book in the series is no disappointment. Loved it.
