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.
A former member of the Secret Service, and security specialist for Roarke Emterprises was thought to have killed her husband and her best friend. Lieutenant Eve Dallas doesn't think it is a jealousy killing, she thinks it has to do with techno-terrorist
I am hooked on J. D. Robb's In Death series. I have been very impressed with Nora's development of Eve. She is right on. I find I am amazed that Nora keeps coming back with excellent plots and clever stories. I really love this series.
I didn't like this book all that much. Maybe if I had read this series from the beginning I would feel differently. The story jumped right in with very little set-up of the characters, which is fine seeing as there are several books before this one. One thing that annoyed me was the author used several words without explaining what they were (the story takes place in 2059 I think). Also, just so future readers are aware, there was A LOT of swearing in this book. It is possible to read this book without having read the others and still understand what is going on because the plot (a case getting solved by the main character who is a cop) does have a beginning, middle and end.
Reva used to be a member of the Secret Service, and then a security specialist until she ended up finding her husband and best friend dead. Lieutenant Eve Dallas thinks there's more to this than jealousy. All of the husband's files in his computer were corrupted. Reva and her husband had been under a government contract to develop a program that would shield against technological terrorists. Eve must solve this mystery before the whole country gets affected!
Great book. I've never read Roberts writing as Robb but it was actually a really good treat. I like that it takes place in the future but it's unbelievable! She makes it interesting and adds some twists that are even better.
This was pretty good. I liked reading the issues between Eve and Roarke; it shows that they are far from perfect. It made me hope for a good, and realistic, resolution and I think it was accomplished. I also enjoyed the mystery, even though I guessed an aspect of it.
another good one, its so easy to blast thru her books. . .I'm reading something else in between, to slow me down. . .Im readin this series in order. this book had a deeper plot than some,and not much interaction with Eve Dallas and all her crew.
A midnight call from Roarke's Administrative Assistant, Caro, leads Eve and Roarke to the scene of a murder. Caro's daughter, Reva Ewing, tracked her cheating husband to his girlfriend's apartment only to find them dead. All evidence points to Reva being set up as the killer. Eve and Roarke, along with Peabody, McNab, and Feeney, uncover government intrigue, spies, and a computer virus. But the most shocking detail that is uncovered is a secret from Eve's past...a secret that may drive Roarke and Eve apart.
This book started off strong with the latest murders in the very first pages. But as the mystery continued, I had a hard time concentrating on it. There were lots of twists and turns, most of which I didn't see coming; yet it wasn't a favorite in this series. But, the relationship part of the story was excellent. Roarke and Eve are divided when a detail from Eve's past is uncovered. How they work through their disagreement makes this book a strong entry in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.
any in death book should be on your to read list. if youenjoy nora roberts you will also enjoy these. may take a little while to get into the story line but after a dozen pages you will be hooked. happy reading

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.
Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):
7.5 Midnight in Death (Silent Night Anthology)
12.5 Interlude in Death (Out of this World Anthology)
17.5 Remember When (1st part by Nora, 2nd by JD Robb - stories are connected)
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)
24.5 Eternity in Death (Dead in the Night Anthology)
26.5 Ritual in Death (Suite 606 Anthology)
29.5 Missing in Death (The Lost Anthology)
It is the year 2059, a future where technology and humanity collide, and a new computer virus has become the latest form of terrorism... Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and then a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises---until she was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned artist Blair Bissel, nd her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killings than jealous rage---all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted. Lots of sex and suspense!
