Midnight in Death (In Death #7.5)
The number-one New York Times bestselling In Death series explodes with intrigue, passion, and suspense. Now, Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, propels you into the darkest night of Lieutenant Eve Dallas's life...when a killer comes to call...
Eve's name has made a Christmas list, but it's not for being naughty or nice. It's for putting a serial killer behind bars. No
Picking up where #7 left off this was a perfect extension of that book.
I'm still enjoying all the side characters too.
Feeney and his bags of nuts. Got to love the guy.
Peabody and her dry humor. She is the perfect partner for Eve.
McNabb is new and I like him. I'm figuring he will get tangled up with Peabody. But I could be wrong.
Dr. Mira is wonderful. I love their relationship.
Mavis wasn't in this one but is her BFF and these two couldn't be any more different which is pe ...more
I've said it before and I'll say it again, there are very few authors whose novellas I enjoy. Most of the time they seem incomplete or uninteresting. I'm happy to say that JD Robb didn't disappoint on that aspect of her writing.
This novella was just as good as her full novels. The story was cohesive, the mystery interesting and the killer worthy of attention. This author can really do no wrong.
I really enjoyed this little taste of In Death land and it left me keen to get on with the next book:)
For a moment that was all there was. The taste of him, the feel of him pressed against her, the need they created in each other time after time erupting inside her.
"We don't have a thing for New Year's, do we? No party or anything?"
LOL. Love how Eve is not the party animal ... my kind of girl.
"You're what I want, Eve, the woman who leaves...more
The first novella of the series, Midnight in Death begins in the aftermath of the events of Holiday in Death when a killer from Eve's past escapes and begins taking revenge on those he holds responsible for his conviction. He starts with the judge and prosecutor, but it is Eve who is his ultimate target.
A solid and comprehensive read, but it fails to answer some of the questions left unanswered after last book; especially the aftermath of the attack on Peabody, which is ...more
Eve is on someone’s Christmas list....
Didn’t matter that book was shorter than all the rest. The fact is that Robb has written a damn good story with just a quarter of the word count. Not many authors can pull off novellas, but J.D. Robb can.
This story takes place right after the previous one where the Christmas holidays are in full spring. But Eve and Roarke can’t enjoy it because a man who Eve had the pleasure to catch before has escaped and is killing once again. Bu ...more
Probably this is not the first time I'm going to say that I don't really enjoy novellas. In my opinion, what happens is that the plot has to be worked out very fast and the overall deliverance is compromised. That being said, I still enjoyed Midnight in Death, it was a fairly good plot with enough angst. But it was just one more crime story that Eve had to solve with the help of her team. As often is the case in the In Death series, the crimes were very close to Eve and she ha ...more
In this story Eve knows who the murderer is and who the potential victims are, but she does not know where he is. So the race is on to locate him before he kills anyone else on his list. Both Eve and Doctor Mira, Eve's mother figure who works as a profiler for the police department, are on his list. It is always interesting to read Eve as she tracks down her suspects. The story becomes very suspenceful towards the end and has a very satisfying conclusion.
This is a st ...more
Here we see how much Mira means to Eve, and of course, Eve and Roarke's ever growing relationship. As usual, I love visiting JD Robb's In Death world ...more
The story is a build up of the chase and has torturous murders -described in explicit detail.
Escapes off-planet prison
To get back at Eve.
Personal for Eve.
She must separate her mind
From her emotions.
First read 2010, re-read 10/13, free kindle edition. Another haiku:
Short, but complete and perfect
How does she do that?
De facto, este “pequeno” caso policial está relacionado com um caso que Eve havia resolvido anos antes. David Palmer, o homi ...more
The story jumps right into the action as Eve Dallas is called to investigate a body that has been dumped in Times Square just after Christmas. The victim is Judge Wainger and he had been brutally tortured before being killed. Attached to the body is a note with a list of who the murderer is going to kill. Eve’s name is last on the list. All th ...more
This was a nice little episode to continue with the holiday season. It's amazing that Robb can create a full-bodied story in less than 100 pages, and still leave the reader (or listener) satisfied. Another serial murderer has emerged, only a few hours after the last case was solved. It's still Christmas, and Eve is called again to find the killer of a man whose body is dumped in the middle of the ice rink at Rockefeller Center. This is ...more
It is the first minutes of Christmas Day and Eve has another death on her hands. Roarke and her trusty crew try to find the murder ...more
This novella was one of her better ones. I really liked it. It's fairly early in the series before a lot of stuff has happened. It's nice to see that stage in the relationship.
This novella has a good chunk of the Eve Dallas-Dr Mira relationship which I always like to see. The villain gets a B+ in terms of evil.
One nice thing about this series is the attention to procedure. A ...more
