Publisher's Summary

Louie Cogburn had spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding headache was unbearable - like spikes drilling into his brain. And it was getting worse. Finally, when someone knocked at his door, Louie picked up a baseball bat, opened the door, and started swinging...

The first cop on the scene fired his stunner twice and Louie died instantly. Detective Eve Dallas has taken over the investigation, but there's nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or death. The only clue is a bizarre message left on his computer screen: Absolute Purity Achieved.

And when a second man dies under nearly identical circumstances, Dallas starts racking her brain for answers and for courage to face the impossible... that this might be a computer virus able to spread from machine to man....

Great story

Showed a softer side of Eve. Showed that she can let others in and she can care about others. She's learning what it means to have a family and close friends. As always Susan did an AWESOME job of narrating. I'm so glad they stayed with her and didn't which up. I think it would lose something if they change narrators.

Great Interaction with Side Characters

This one wasnt all about the case, but had some great moments with side characters. I loved that the boy came back, and we get to see him growing up.

the ending surprised me, but was believable and had good basis.

Another good one!

Best Lt Eve to date.

This is the best of the series to date. Complicated and complex with a satisfying wrap up. Narrator is the best. Highly recommend this audiobook.

Another hit

Once again JDRobb and Susan Ericksen team for another spelling binding adventure of Lt Eve Dallas. Really showed the more gentle side of Dallas.

Another Good Plot and Character Interaction.

I enjoyed the plot and character interaction in this addition to this highly entertaining series. My Rating 4.25.

Eve begins a new investigation when called to the scene of a brutal killing. The killer was violently bludgeoning his neighbors with a baseball bat. Officer Trueheart took a few hits before he shot the man to stop him. The investigation quickly reveals that the killer, Louie Cogburn, was a sleaze bag criminal who spent hours on the computer which held the last message on the screen: “Purity has been achieved.” The case expands as more computer deaths are called in with the same screen message.

Eve pulls together her core team - Peabody, McNab, Feeney, and her husband, Roarke, as a civilian consultant - and begins the hunt for the Purity terrorists. News reporter Nadine adds to the tension and psychiatrist/profiler Dr. Mira steps in to help calm things when needed and even zany Mavis has a surprise to offer.

As usual, I enjoyed the well laid out plot and the teams work to get the conspirators. There is a nice blend of human life in this story as Eve deals with injured officers and shows a bit of the warmth and caring that lies hidden but fuels her drive to be a cop for the people.

The only thing I didn’t care for in this book was it seemed to be filled with anger. It opens with frustration and annoyance enhanced by the heat of summer. There is a lot of shouting and I was thankful for Roarke stepping in at times with his cool confidence that helps to center Eve.

I recommend this highly entertaining series to mystery lovers who like a tough female cop with great sidekick characters.

Audio Notes: Susan Ericksen does her usual superb job of narrating these characters. I think the angry/heat tone was part of the story and Susan captured it in the narration… for good or bad. Her voices are filled with personality and it makes listening to the series that much more enjoyable.

Purity in Death

This is probably the only Nora Roberts book that I just didn’t care for the story line.

Purity in Death

And they just get better. Well narrated, love the comical interludes, the twists at the end.
