I am a huge Nora Roberts/JD Robb fan and have read them all. This was the first book I did not like. The topic of a pedophile criminal was hard to take and her continued failure to catch him was even worse...this was a dark book. Although, I hear often of these criminals in the news... I would have liked the suffering of the victims and her main character to end sooner. I love the suspense in her other books and know that there will be twists and turns in any Nora Roberts book; however, the last chapter of this book was not even a good/happy one as expected. Really a darker venture in writing for JD Robb. On a positive note, the narrator was very good.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
The story was a little too self centered on Eve, much more than usual. I love the series and can hardly wait to get the lastest in the series. This story was good but there was a lot of whining from Eve about her past. Enough all ready on the childhood stuff. Eve is a wonderful detective and the rest of the cast of characters are wonderful. Why not keep to the great stories? All that aside, it is an exciting story and I would recommend it.
It is getting harder to find a new adventure for these two but I liked it because they work together and work things out. It is nice to see a stable relationship when most of what is in books, movies and on TV is about people not making a relationship work.
This one picks up where Treachery in Death left off. Eve deals with the past in the latest Eve Dallas story. She chases an escaped prisoner from her early cop days. And her childhood memories return with a vengeance. Her relationship with husband Roarke is stronger than ever as they both deal with her past. Susan Ericksen is fantastic as usual.
Love to read and really enjoy listening to a good reader!! :)
These stories keep getting better & better a most entertaining book in this fab series!
I fear that the end is coming very soon to the in Death series
This is the first main book without the word "death" in the title. That is because this book is not only about death, but more about the birth and the road to salvation of the present day Eve Dallas whom we come to love so much
Most of the book takes place in Dallas, so we don't get to read much about her regular crew except Dr.Mira. But because Eve is what she is now, we feel the their presence with her. We know she can survive because of them. There is a touching scene with Galahad that almost made me cry.
This book is a MUST for fans
Once again JD Robb has done it. Kept me totally involved and focused on the story and as always waiting impatiently for the next one. Just can't wait. Susan Ericksen I love you. Thank you
J.D.Robb and Susan Ericksen, oh my !! These two talents are just the alt, I mean they are frigid!! Ok, now that I got that out of my system LOL, I just can't say enough about the In Death series. I mean 33 books and still fresh, intriging, not one character has gotten boring. Each one stays themselves but also evolves as time goes by. No one and I mean NO ONE could have pulled off each and every character in this series as well as Susan Ericksen. That is not to say I don't love and enjoy other narrators but for this Susan you are ice. Again, Robb and Ericksen you are great and great together PLEASE keep up the good work.
Say something about yourself! I am visually impaired, and was very hesitant about downloading audible books initally. Now I LOVE it!!
Fast paced, thrilling, story telling at it's best! J. D. Robb has done it again! This story answers some questions, while raising others. Can't wait for the next installment in Eve's story!
I have been a J.D. Robb fan for too many years to count, but this book is one of the best in the series. The way that Eve is forced to deal with so many things from her past all in one case is riveting. I couldn't put it down from page one. Susan Ericksen is one of my favorite narrators and she did a great job on this one.
