This feature is for short reviews, reviews of books in a series where it might feel repetitive, or (as Michelle suggested) books I was too lazy to write a “real” review for. Today’s books are from the In Death series, which is quite long and could easily get super repetitive.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle. The only way out is to move fast. Question everyone and everything . . . and in the meantime, try to tell the difference between the truth - and really good acting.

Awesome as always! I just live the relationships – Eve and Rourke, Eve and Peabody, Peabody and McNabb, etc. Great mystery, great detective work. Looks like we may have another cop getting ready to join the crew, which is exciting. Love it all 🙂

In an uptown strip joint, a cop is found bludgeoned to death. The weapon is a baseball bat. The motive is a mystery. It's a case of serious overkill that pushes Eve Dallas straight into overdrive. Her investigation uncovers a private club that is more than a hot spot. Purgatory's a last chance for atonement where everyone is judged. Where your most intimate fate depends on your most intimate sins. And where one cop's hidden secrets are about to plunge innocent souls into vice-ridden damnation…

I think what I loved most about this book was that Eve is forced to deal with corruption within the police force – a very uncomfortable subject for someone who lives the job and is so honest and good… and yet, has started becoming comfortable with grey areas and fudging the lines to get the bad guy. I also loved the struggle Roarke goes through– his protective instincts and massive male ego are very much at war with his wife’s job and equal desire to protect him. Great development for their relationship.

At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown - and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He's Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn't help solve the crime. Because there's someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility - that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke...

Loved it, as always! I suspected one layer of betrayal from the beginning, but not all the layers. Loved Eve and Rourke’s relationship dynamics (again as always). I love the way JD Robb keeps their relationship so fresh by showing how they rely on each other to get through so many situations.

  1. I love the In Death series! (Though I haven’t listened to the audio book versions.) I think I’m up to like 42 or so now? At that point it started to feel like it was stuck in a rut so I sort of wandered away, but… ah, so many good books in this series! I love Peabody, McNab, Feeny, Leonardo! Even Summerset!
