Length: 12 hours 27 minutes
With the precision of a surgeon, a serial killer preys on the most vulnerable souls of the world's city streets. The first victim: a sidewalk sleeper, found dead in New York City. No bruises, no signs of struggle. Just a laser-perfect, fist-sized hole where his heart had once been. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is assigned to investigate. But in the heat of a cat-and-mouse game with the killer, Dallas's job is suddenly on the line. Now her hands are tied…between a struggle for justice—and a fight for her career.…
Although the crimes that Eve Dallas gets caught up with in this book weren’t the most exciting for me, the things that happened to Eve and the way her team – her friends and Rourke – rallied around her made Conspiracy in Death one of my favorites so far.
The conspiracy all centers around organs being stolen from people – people who don’t matter much to society and are easily overlooked, until Eve gets on the case. The mystery was solid, it just wasn’t my favorite in the series so far and I can’t really say why… I don’t know, but it wasn’t.
What I did love about Conspiracy in Death was the attack on Eve. I don’t want to say what happened specifically, because that’s kind of a shock moment, but it made me cry a bit. And then seeing everyone – Rourke, Peabody, Feeney, Mavis, McNabb, Nadine, Dr. Mira, and even Somerset- rally around Eve and support her was fantastic. I loved seeing how Rourke knew exactly what Eve needed and I loved seeing how much she’s cared for and respected, even by those we don’t really know well.
I’ve even grown to really like the narrator. I don’t know if her voices have improved or I’m just used to them but now I wouldn’t want any other voices for these characters – not even Peabody, who I used to say she did a horrible voice for. What can I say, her narration has allowed my addiction to go on full speed ahead so I guess I shouldn’t complain!
