This year I decided to start from the beginning, start with book 1 and work my way through the series. Best decision I made, relationship and back stories make sense and I feel as if I'm part of the family. Every character matters, when someone gets hurt or falls in love I laugh and cry. This is a great series.(less)

I liked the personal story with the side characters better than the actual storyline of the bomber. I don't know why the bombing thing didn't do it for me as well as the past murderers, but I think it is because the serial killer books felt less impersonal. The bombings were just giant catastrophes that felt sad, but not personal at all. Plus, the Twin Towers were mentioned as still being there. And, it was a story about bombing monuments and such. Kind of depressing.

I loved this book... I really did! I loved the intriguing story, the unbelievable plot twists and all that "cop work".

But I hated both Roarke and Eve in some parts of the book. They both have a problem with in, they have none! Eve had no business trying to run Peabody's and McNab's personal life(something she also did with Peabody and Charles). The girl needs to learn that some things she needs to get her nose out of!

First off, I have to thank the author for finally bringing all that sexual tension in between Peabody and McNab to a boil. And in such a dramatic way! The fact that Feeney witnessed it (and was disturbed by it) was simply icing on the cake for me. Such a hilarious scene. I simply loved them in this book. :D

We get introduced to a new character here. Zeke, Peabody's brother comes to town. I loved that we got a deeper look at Peabody and her family, but he was a little too childlike for me. I didn'

Another excellent instalment in this great series. Eve and Roarke have been married 6 months now are their relationship has really started to cement however Eve still suffers from some insecurities that cause her to give Roarke a hard time and she also dislikes him getting too involved in her work. Despite all that they make a great team and Roarke's help is invaluable when time is of the essence and the obtaining of sensitive data or new fangled equipment is involved.

My first J.D. Robb and I loved it! It's Nora Robert under the penname. As everyone already knows, she's a fabulous writer!
It just took me to my childhood days when I used to read Nancy Drew and fall asleep. Just gives that feeling here.
It's a future based series with Eve, a bad-ass cop and Roarke? He's just amazing at whatever he does, which is, being nosy and helping his wife!
Always matter how many times I read it! This is early in the series, and Eve and Roarke are still 'feeling out the boundaries' to speak. This makes for a perfect mix of tension and passion. Omg...the ending on top of the Statue of Liberty never gets old...epic awesomeness abounds, indeed!

I get why people keep coming back for more. Listening to these audiobooks is actually addicting I can't even work sometimes if I don't hear these characters. So I enjoyed so many things about this installment. Firstly Peabody's brother comes to visit and we get to see a whole different side to her. Also, her love life heats up, and though I saw it coming I want a lot more before they end (or don't end cause I like them together) I just think Peabody is such a fun character.

Let me first say that being able to switch back and forth between my kindle book and my audible audiobook is such an addictive thing.

Ok, now that that's out of the way, I'll get to this review. I had put this series aside for about 2 years and now I'm getting back into it. I read the first 8 books pretty much back to back and I think I got burned out. Now that I've had some distance from it and I'm returning, I know why I devoured them so quickly when I first started.

I absolutely loved this. I

Loyalty in Death has one of the best endings in so far in the series! It kept me on my toes and got my heart jackhammering in my chest! But before I talk about the ending, let’s start from page one...

My favourite cop, Lieutenant Eve Dallas has a murder case where a wife has literally screwed her husband over. When Lisbeth literally drills her cheating husband to a wall with one of his power tools, Eve doesn’t think her life could get worse. But then she starts getting these suspicious notificati

Another favorite as much because of the Hollywood ending as the case. Peabody's backstory gets fleshed out a bit more when we get to meet her brother Zeke and learn a bit more about Freeagers and their philosophy. Her first bounce with McNabb is a light bit of entertainment to keep the massive body count from becoming too depressing. The whole story is constructed well. I felt a bit like Peabody when I first read it, trying to figure out who the bad guys were and why, like I was always a step be ...more

Eve komt dankzij haar werk heel wat mensen met lugubere passies tegen. Stuk voor stuk hebben ze een kronkel in hun hersenen die hen doet geloven dat ze hun daden kunnen verantwoorden. Daarnaast heeft geen van hen respect voor het leven van een ander.

Waar de meeste van hen hun slachtoffers één voor één om het leven brengen deinst deze terrorist er niet voor terug om meerdere mensen op hetzelfde ogenblik van het leven te beroven. J.D.Robb’s fantasie leunt dit keer – dankzij de recente gebeurteniss

Okay, I can’t believe I read the paperback instead of listening to the fabulous Ms. Ericksen on audiobook, but I did. I had to have my Roarke fix, LOL! Some of you may know, I did the stupidest thing and, after listening to the first few chapters, erased my library copy of the downloadable audiobook of this one from my iPod/Touch, putting me back on the waitlist at #5. I checked the stacks – and even the hardcopies were checked out! Eep! So, I had to
This installment just didn't engage me like the others did. It wasn't bad in that I doubt Robb could ever write s bad In Death book but I didn't enjoy it as I did the others.

It may be entirely my fault, though. I brought it along to read during a weekend seminar retreat and was just too busy to concentrate on the book. I was tired and constipated and Eve really irked me in this book.

I did enjoy seeing McNab and Peabody getting it on together, finally, but the evil plot-evil group thing felt very

Literally bombastic ;)
Sneaky and violent, is what gets Eve's juices going. Teamed with the ever loyal aide Peabody and her uber sexy husband, the Lieutenant saves New York from destruction at the hands of yet another lunatic. In this book, we get to experience being almost blown away a few times as well as get a lesson at deception and treachery. Well, for her? Just another day in paradise.

This is another fantastic installment in the "In Death" series. Roarke and Eve keep are terrific (once again) and I especially loved this one because we got to see more of Peabody's character. These books just keep getting better and I am not even half way done with the series...Woo hoo!!!
Loyalty in Death by J.D Robb is the 9th book in the In Death series. A group calling themselves Cassandra is bombing New York landmarks in an attempt to start another urban war. Another amazing book with plenty of thrilling action reaching a gripping climax st the top of the Statue of Liberty. We meet Peabody's younger brother and her relationship with McNabb makes a rocky start. It is one of those books that you can't put down and makes you want to start the next one straight away.

Normally, I can count on an Eve Dallas book to be a quick, suspenseful ride, but this one? Not so much. The suspense plot felt lackluster, a lot of smoke and mirrors without much in the way of substance. Mavis' appearances felt thrown in, just for the sake of having them there. Even Dr. Mira's appearance was brief and brought little meaning to the story. One could tell that this wasn't Eve's forte at all, so I have to wonder why she was lead on the case in the first place, even with the villains ...more
So far my least favorite of the In Death series. Eve was a real pisser in this one. Normally I really enjoy her tough attitude, but in this one she seriously needed to take a chill pill. I also think that the premise of this book was hard to read since it was about terrorism hitting New York City and it was written before 9/11. There is a part in the book where they are worried that the Twin Towers might be a target for the terrorists. Just a little heart wrenching knowing they no longer stand a ...more

I understand that the series is currently at 30 some odd books. I wonder how can it keep interesting for that long? But then I pick up the next in the series. I'm instantly enthralled by the characters continued growth and development. This is maybe my favorite so far. Peabody still gets the best lines, Roarke is still too perfect, and Eve still kicks ass.

Good fun and a good read.
Eve is called on to resolve a high-profile case of a wealthy, well-liked victim during a rash of gruesome and seemingly random murders in New York. Peabody's wide-eyed brother, Zeke, gawks over the wonders of the city during his first visit to handcraft cabinets for a wealthy client and has a secret he's holding close.

Eve receives a not so cryptic note from a terrorist group calling themselves, Cassandra, targeting Eve as the epitome of police work. As Eve prepares to enter the address in her c

#9 in the In Death series

I don't know how she does it, but Robb keeps creating fascinating and intricate mysteries that capture and keep my interest throughout, despite this being the 9th in the series. It was so exciting, especially at the end, that I couldn't turn it off. Susan Ericksen's narration is masterful, as always. This time Dallas is targeted by Cassandra, a revolutionary group with its roots in the past. They are what we would now call terrorists, determined to cause death and destru

Assim começa e acaba cada mensagem que Eve recebe de um grupo terrorista que ameaça explodir marcos importantes de Nova Iorque, assassinando indiscriminadamente centenas de pessoas. E esta única frase deu-me arrepios de cada vez que a li...

Ao contrário dos livros anteriores em que a tenente Eve Dallas se focava em resolver homicidios interligados (e, de certa forma, mais pessoais), neste livro ela terá de se focar em resolver não só dois homicidios que aparentemente nada têm

Reading this book was like sitting down to coffee with old friends. Warm, and comfortable, and fun. I never wanted it to end. Except that I know I can get the next book and start on it.

One of the more "explosive" books in the series! Liked meeting Zeke Peabody - added yet another dimension to the ID world.

1999 was the year that this book was published - what a coincedence that the "Arlington" explosion took place in September 25, 2023 - wow.

I liked this book because of the story line for starters, the angst among the characters, meeting a Free-Ager, and of course the Eve and Roarke story! And I can overlook Boston being in the State of Maine! :)

5 Starts and 2 thumbs up - great

Since I'm reading the majority of this series almost back to back (as part of a group series read), I was worried that I would start to get bored with one of these books. Maybe I wouldn't care what happened to Peabody or McNabb, or Feeney, or even Eve herself. Notice I left Roarke out of that list because I will ALWAYS care what happens to our sexy Irish man. Much to my delight I find that each books has been different enough, with it's own unique plot twist and turns, that I'm still completely ...more

This is a book about a secret terrorist group which has its roots in the past. Very interesting to see what happened in the times of unrest in this futuristic world, plus I really enjoyed the villain. Roarke kicked major ass here, and so as Eve (which goes without saying). We also met Peabody's lovely, naive younger brother.
