The violence was more detailed than I like in a book. If it were my first J.D. Robb/ Eve Dallas I would have returned it due to the details of the violence. That said, the story line is provocative and the resolution is actually uplifting and a bit of a tear jerker.
This goes without saying to much, as the heroine Eve, is the focus and maintains the focus.
When Eve tries to read the back of the Thanksgiving gift.
I would prefer that the detail of the violence be toned down. I know Eve is a murder cop, but my imagination can do without the details. I don't want inspired nightmares.
The Characters are well defined.
Some reference to Harry to help the reader get more of a frame of reference.
Simon's blind wife/
This booked seems exceptionally critical of social policies and authority in Norway.
The characters are so vivid and contemporary that the reader can almost share their joy and pain.
The continuity from one location and series of events to another.
Maggie and did I say Maggie!
The Pack mentality!
I could not put it down. While a new character I look forward to reading of Rick and Maggie's adventures again.
I may reread so I get a good feel for how relationships start.
Eve reveals WHO she is.
Eve shooting a 'antique' pistol for the first time.
A must read for anyone that picked up the series and has an interest in how all
the characters met and became part of the story line.
I will reread again. Fine character development, great action, a story line that flowed from beginning to end.
Robin, she discovered herself and did not fall in LUST with her boss.
The struggle up the steps after the fall down stairs.
I did not laugh or cry. I felt like I was saying goodbye to a friend when the book ended.
Hope this becomes a series. Excellent possibilities for character development.
