Book #23 in the "In Death" Series. I liked this one, I'd say its better than average, and the average in this series is pretty damn good.

Eve is called to the scene when an entire family is slaughtered cleanly and professionally in their beds - never even waking to see their killers...top notch security system, nice neighborhood, squeeky clean life hints at no motive or enemies...and now the killers know that they missed one - one accidental survivor, a nine-year old girl, who called the police and crawled through her parents blood to hide.

Eve Dallas finds the girl and while promising her she'll find the killers and the reasons why...she and Rourke struggle to put some distance between this traumatized girl and their memories of their own traumatized pasts. They take the young witness into their own home to keep her as safe as they can.

The killers are organized, well-funded, seemingly military trained and equipped with patience and cunning...and now they know that the cops have the surviving witness...and that the job isn't finished.

What has this group of cold killers got against one little girl and her family?

This one was much better than the others - more of a plot and less of a romance novel.

Good story; a little difficult to visualize the activities, since it takes place in the future with technology that doesn't exist. But, the story is a good read.

I thought Survivor in Death was just OK. There were moments when I laughed out loud and got misty-eyed, but I felt somewhat dissatisfied with the story as a whole. Eve seemed very cold to me. I understand due to her childhood, she'd have a hard time dealing with a kid victim. At times though, she seemed a bit heartless and that not the Eve I've come to learn. The normal camaraderie between everyone didn't feel as genuine this time. I didn't really care for the mystery either. I didn't like the idea behind the killings nor the fact that the killers were tied to groups from previous books. The ending seemed a bit contrived and convenient. I hope the next one is better.

My daughter introduced my to Nora Roberts' books and I can't get enough of them! I really enjoy the In Death Series, but her other books are great too.
