    When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe - not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City....

    MJ says: "Good story, great Eve/Roarke relationship"
    "not worth the wait"

    I love the In-death series and I have been counting the days until I could dig into Indulgence in Death. I re-read the entire series waiting for this release! I read Indulgence in Death as soon as it hit the shelf and almost instantly I was struck by the fact that it didn't seem to have the same voice as other In Death books. My first criticism is that unlike her other books--all which have unique stories, this one is the same story as Seduction in Death. A sick competition between two long time friends involving the planned murders of mainly women, with a couple of male victims to make the story just a slight bit different. THe book started in Ireland with Roarke and Eve visiting his family, and I kept waiting for something to tie back to Ireland. A lovely anniversary present for Roarke was left tangling with no seeming relation to the rest of the story. A BBQ for Morris was planned, but the event didn't appear in the book despite the fact that the event had some interesting promise--The priest from Salvation in Death was going to be Morris' guest. The interview of the second suspect never happened. Charles appears once in the story but never again. The suspects apparently displeased their parents, yet we don't see any attempt to interview family members other than ex-spouses. Roarke doesn't use his unregistered computer at all--also very unusual. And almost no run-ins between Eve and Somerset! There were so many dangling events which felt like compositional errors that I agree with an earlier reviewer--this didn't seem like it was written by JD Robb/Nora. It was formulaic, a slightly new twist on a prior book. I am not giving up on this series yet, but this wasn't worth the wait.

    This is the first in the popular series featuring California investigator Kinsey Millhone. She's 32, twice divorced, no kids, an ex-cop who likes her work...and who works strictly alone!

    Overall

    This is the first review I have written although I have been an audible subscriber for years. I am compelled to write this book because this is the first Sue Grafton novel I have read or listened to and my last. My college junior daughter who is a voracious reader of crime and mystery novels could have written a better book in her sleep. There is no character development and the problem solving process was illogical. I knew "who done it" when the character first appeared in the story. The narrator was awful. Don't was your money. If you want a good female law enforcement series, read JD Robb In Death Series.
