Strangers in Death - In Death, Bk 26

Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides.

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.

This review is from someone who's read only a few novels in this series. This book flagged a bit in the middle, but the premise grabbed me from the very beginning, and about 4/5 of the way through, the pace and suspense both picked up quite a bit for a satisfying ending. Not terribly original, since the plot borrows from a famous Hitchcock film, but a good read all the same.

She never disappoints. I'm going to be ticked off when I get to the end of this series and have to wait for new ones to come out.

Another great read from Robb. The "Dallas-Roark" combination can't be beat. Full of suspense, romance, humor and fun!!
