Ceremony in Death (In Death #5)
Meet me tomorrow, midnight. Aquarian Club. TELL NO ONE.'
When New York cop Frank Wojinski is found murdered, death gets very personal for homicide detective, Eve Dallas - and she'll stop at nothing to find Frank's killer.
But then another victim is claimed: Frank's own granddaughter. As Eve delves deeper into the case, more mutilated corpses are discovered. Then a dead body...more

I dip in every so often. I reckon if I read one a year I might be finished the series by the time I am 95!!
The abused child from the mean streets of Dublin had done what he'd needed to do to survive.
Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is forced to put aside her personal loyalties when she investigates the suspicious death of a fellow officer. When several other victims die in horrific circumstances, Eve finds herself embroiled in a conflict between opposing forces of good and evil that eventually leads her to a confrontation that may force her to play the ultimate price…
The best installment so far both in terms of the investigation and the character development.

I'm really enjoying this series now and getting to know the main characters - Eve, Peabody, Roarke, Mavis and Feeney and how they will behave and react. This might sound as if the books could become a bit predictable but they're not at all. Robb manages to keep the stories fresh and introduces enough new elements to keep us interested and wanting to keep dipping into Eve's life.
In this episode Eve is investigating what looks like the natural death of a fellow police colleague when his granddaug ...more
Surrounded by witches, good and evil, Eve betrays a dear friend and puts the job first.
This book really hits home with Eve. A suspect is the son of a serious psycho serial killer and rapist who worshipped satan. The father raped and beat his own son. Blinded by her emotions, Eve wishes and hopes that the man is innocent, even if all of the evidence points his way.
Ritual killings, orgies and the mysterious unknown witchcr ...more
From the start of the In Death series Eve has always trusted her instincts and her dark, painful past has been a source of compassion that’s allowed her to do her job more effectively than others. Not here. Here, she utterly wrecks a suspect in the interrogation room and others complimen ...more
Robb can weave such great stories and CEREMONY IN DEATH is another great installment to this series. It seems that anything she writes is gold. What’s great about this series is that she is able to keep things fresh but still familiar.
Lieutenant Dallas has a case involving the death of a fellow police officer. More and more clues point the finger at Selina Cross, a crazy Satanic worshiper who participates in dark rituals. While the whole Wicca and Satanic ...more
Set less than a month after the previous book. This one is not so much a mystery story, as Eve has a good idea of which of the possible suspects is the most guilty. She just has to prove it while navigating the line between duty and loyalty. The relationship between Eve and Roarke continues to grow and strengthen. I'm glad the author didn't take the cheat of throwing trumped up romantic woes for unnecessary drama. I also like how the author manages to develop Eve's various re ...more
3.5 stars, but I kinda have to disagree with myself on this one. It was clear who ONE of the bad guys was, but this one was tricky! It sorta seemed like there were bad guys everywhere you looked! I think my favorite part is the Eve/Feeney stuff. EMOTIONAL!!! I cried, not gonna lie. And on my 5th+ time reading it!!! I thought I remembered the ending being ... I dunno... LONGER. But it wraps up a bit too quickly, I thought.

Riavere Roarke, uno degli uomini da libro più fantastici mai trovati, è stata un'emozione non da poco. E pure riavere Eve, una delle mie protagoniste femminili preferiti, tostissima quasi fino a diventare fastidiosa, ma anche per questo molto amata.

These are one of those guilty pleasure types of books. Eve Dallas is cop in the Big Apple, far ahead in the future when cars can fly and holograms are common. She is married to the illustrious Roarke - a somewhat mysterious man who also happens to be billionaire. (That's handy.)
Eve loves her job as a homicide detective and she is always called in to help on t ...more

Love the unexpected tattoo on Eve - I always find that just hilarious.
So here's a question, when J.D. Robb/Nora was writing this series did she always have a plan about the ring? We learn that Eve and Roarke have wedding rings in Rapture and that Eve's has a design on hers, then we learn in Ceremony that it's a protection design - so was this planned?
คือยังไงทำงานกลับมาเหนือยแทบตายกยังมีอารมณจะ "เขารหัส" กันอีก
It may take me almost a year to finish this book but it doesn't mean it's bad. I am a mercurial book worm that loose interest easily. So i tend to jump from book to book all the time. But I always come back to finish the book I like and this series are among those I know I can always come back to finish it at the right timing.
The story is scary. And I love Roake!

Naked in Death is the first book in what was initially meant to be trilogy about Eve Dallas, a NY police lieutenant with a dark past. In that first book she meets the mysterious Roarke, who is a suspect in the case. By the time the third book in that initial trilogy was in stores readers clamored for more.

"I love you," she murmured. "I love you so much, I'm stupid about it."
With a sigh, she settled down, closed her eyes, and willed her mind to empty.
Beside her, Roarke smiled into the dark.
He never slept first.”
Eve: "You know, have a cookie. You'll feel better. Were you making me feel better?"
Roarke: "I certainly hope so, it worked for me. I wanted you. I always do."
Eve: "It's funny how men can wake up with their brains in their cocks."
Roarke: "It makes us what we are. Let's take a shower. I'll give you another cookie.”
