    Story

    On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better. A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

    Story
    What would have made Calculated in Death better?

    Better storyline. This one book was particularly stale and I"m a bit surprised. Death and taxes are indeed a part of life, but it does not make an interesting read. It's time for this series to shake things up. They need a kid, introduce a new character or something. Let Eve have a sibling a grandparent. Just add SOMETHING!


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    I found it boring and I had a hard time wanting to finish.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Ericksen is the only reason why I finished the book.


    What character would you cut from Calculated in Death?

    The socialite. She had no purpose at all. She wasn't even fun to hate.


    Any additional comments?

    It's time to shake things up if this series is going to continue. Same couples, same characters, same bantering. Same same same. I think the only thing JD Robb can do to catch my interest is if they adopt some kids or something. A girl like Eve and a boy like Roark. Not young kids but tweens or teens to shake up the story lines. I think if the next book is like all the rest I may retire myself from the series. I felt like this was a waste of my credit.
