4 I Love A Good Mystery Stars

I love these books! They are interesting and fast paced and although Eve does what cops all over the world do in reality, which is investigate, not going around beating up guys until someone talks, the books manage not to become tedious.

And although I love the mystery suspect of the books, I enjoy watching Eve work, I find her fear of primping hilarious and I always have a good laugh with Peabody's and McNab's antics, there is one aspect of the book that is beginning

“Predators did not need mercy.”― Conn Iggulden

Throughout the story we as a reader know how difficult it is for Eve to deal with this case (view spoiler).

There are innocent women who go out on a date but do not survive the night. We as readers know the identity of the killers from the very start and it's all about Eve Dallas finding them and stopping them in their sick game!

The chapters that were from the killer's perspective were SICK!!

Lucky number 13 in the series and it was a good one. Eve is trying to catch two guys who are using a date rape drug to rape and kill their victim. It's a game to them where they get points.

We know who the murderers are for the whole book, but it was still a fun ride to watch the process. Even better than that is the characters and relationships between all of them. There is something to be said for long series because you really get involved in their world and feel like the characters are old fr

Another wonderful re-read...Loved Roarke's reaction to Eve being sick and her learning to deal with it. (Thanks to Summerset!) Lots of character growth...Roarke is getting more involved in the case. Eve is still extremely annoyed, but letting him. Progress on the Peabody/McNab front, as well. "We're a couple." "A couple of what?" Vintage Eve. Loved Eve's rant in Whitney's office...and his reaction. On to the next!

1st read: 30th March-15th April
Best one-liners:
Eve: "Okay, now that I've let you fuck me and feed me, thereby satisfying all immediate appetites, I've got work."
Roarke: "Aren't you lucky to have me? A rhetorical question, darling," he said and stuffed caviar into her mouth.

I still can't get over how amazing this narrator is!

The pursuit of love has never been so deadly. A killer seduced by the idea of love targets victims of an online poetry chatroom where after making an arrangement to meet, he wines and dines them, slipping potent and rare date-rape drugs into their drinks until all they feel is euphoria and desire. These unsuspecting romantics continue to be targeted by this anonymous killer. Coming in to stop this string of murders from occurring, Eve Dallas uses everything in her arsen

This being the thirteenth book of an amazing series, I'm having trouble thinking up new ways to praise every next one, no matter how very different they are all from one another. (I can't imagine writing a review when I reach book 30-something)

This one is sort of a lucky read for me, because I was gone for two weeks and out of the several books from the series I saw in one bookstore, this was one. Being the one I've reached I couldn't believe my luck and bought the paperback.

And it was an engros

5 stars. This series is so awesome. Eve really had he work cut our for her on this one. It was a bit dark, but the banter with everyone makes it fun and lightens the subject matter up a bit. This is quickly turning into a favorite series. I can't wait to read more.
My whole review is spoilers so don't read it unless you are masochistic. (view spoiler) ...more

What a despicable pair of spoiled brats, with one being so much worse than the other. And sadly, even though this is set in the future, it's not beyond the realm of actually happening.

Louise and Charles meet in this book - gotta love that couple. Ian and Charles get into a good knock around fight with "Dishy Dimato" cooling them off!

McNab and Peabody get back together and this time exclusively!

Two thumbs up - now onto Reunion in Death!

This is the first book in this series that Susan Ericksen did not make Peabody sound pinched-nosed. That was a bit of a surprise given that I already gotten used to hearing Peabody as pinched-nosed character. When I first encountered it, I didn't really like it that Peabody sounded pinched-nosed. But now that I'd gotten used to it after, what, ten books? I didn't like it that Peabody has changed voiced. I guess change doesn't sit well with me...

Yes,yes I know I jumped from the first book to this one but I needed it for a challenge but it's still a great book. Eve's patience was tested in this book. Really a crazy ride with an expensive date rape drug. Whoa.

I like this series. But sometimes Eve gets on my last nerve. She can be such a hypocrite... it drives me crazy! It's okay when she bends the rules, but if anyone else does they need to be slapped down. Her "lapses" are always excused that she had no choice. Blah Blah Blah. She would have crucified them if someone else did it.

She hates when other cops misuse their badges, but she is a bully whenever it suits her. It's all justified of course because she has a truly terrible past and it's all

As always, a very pleasant visit with Eve and Roarke. While the murder mystery is solid, my feeling in this book was that it was secondary to the further development of Eve and Roarke's relationship. There have been some lovely touches in previous books of Eve's attempts to do the 'relationship thing' and that goes up a level in this book. As her first wedding anniversary approaches, Eve is finally beginning to find some security in her relationship with Roarke, even if she still feels she ...more

My thoughts: This is the thirteenth in the series and I guess I should be used to Eve's stubborn refusal to make it easy on herself. She just seemed to irk me to no end even refusing to admit when she was sick and had to take some flu medication. Roake had to sit on top of her so that the medicine could be thrown down her throat. She has been married to Roake for nearly a year now, shouldn't she accept a little love, tenderness, friendship and support by now. That man is a saint with everyt

This installment of the In Death Series was intense. Not because of the murders. I mean, those were bad, and I felt sorry for the women who lost their lives in the story, but we are expecting that with this series, right?

No, the intense part was Eve. She's slowly becoming more vulnerable as the series goes on and it's really opening up her old wounds. It makes me ache for her. I can't imagine how awful it is for her to have the coming up for again when she's starting to get her life
This is #13 in the Eve Dallas/Roarke series, this time about two sociopathic serial killer friends. By 13 I thought they should be moving things along a bit, it's getting pretty repetitive. I understand that in series they need to repeat things a little bit to keep people up to date who are just joining in, but the characters need to move along a bit too. Everyone here needs one giant therapy session because they're all getting more moody, needy and neurotic. Maybe it just seems that way because ...more
I started listening to this book & had to do a double take on the narrator. Yep, it's the same woman as all the previous books . . . but she's completely changed the "voices" for all the characters.

I miss Peabody's gruff character voice. Eve sounds a lot "weaker", Ian is a lot different. Feeney & Roarke are the only recognizable characters she's reading. I REALLY hope the rest of the books aren't like this one. Very disappointed so far with this reading.

The story, however, is pretty awes

Another great 'Eve Dallas' novel. Firstly I have to say that as always I listened to this on Audio like the rest of the series and one of the secondary characters voices has changed!! I later found out that this book was the first one that Susan Erickson (the narrator on Audio) recorded and after the 14th book she got the voices right and went back to record the 1st - 12th. So I only have to put up with that terrible rendition of Peabody for one more book before it goes back to normal for the ...more

Another excellent addition to the In Death series.

Just a side note if you are listening to the audio version...this is the first book that the narrator, Susan Erickson, read in the series and the voices for the charcters are not the same as the previous 12 books. The most notable one is Peabody...she sounds very simalar to Eve and I found myself having a hard time telling them apart. So, if you have been listening to the books in order, as I have, be prepared to be a little shocked at the differ

Absolutely brilliant. I've been worried for the last few books that this series was falling in a formula to follow, put in characters, a general situation and churn and turn and a finished book pops out. This book, I think, puts that to rest, since it is nothing like the previous book. I would have liked to see a little more Peabody and McNab, but overall I enjoyed it and can't wait to read the next.
This one was extremely hard to put down! The story was a good mystery yarn, had a good bit of action in it, and yet managed to stay focused on character development as well. We see more of the developments between Peabody and McNab, and I enjoyed what I saw there. The relationship between Roarke and Eve continues to deepen, and it was good to see! Even the Summerset/Eve developments were interesting! All in all, it was a good story and an interesting one!

I have loved every one of the In Death series, this one had a story line that had me listening to it everywhere, I've driven my family nuts, cos let's face it, who really wants to talk when Eve and Roarke, the dynamic duo are back and at their best?

Time for the first blog review for an installment in one of my favorites series! I have been slowly making my way through JD Robb's lengthy, but addictive In Death series for almost five years now. I have recently had an epiphany that I am never going to catch up with these books unless I buckle down and get serious. I absolutely adore these books and I'm happy to feature them for the first time on my least through a review.

This is the 13th book in the In Death series.

Early June 2059 and Eve is called to the scene where a young woman has leaped from her own balcony to her death. Upon investigating the woman, Eve learns that the woman had just ended the evening with a date she'd met online. The scene of her apartment showed evidence of romance: pink rose petals, red wine, candles and romantic music. But wait....hold the phone.... there was evidence of date rape drugs in the woman's system (colorfully know as Whore a

“There was never anybody before you," she said. "I just wanted to say that. And when I did what I do, and it opened a crack in me like it did last night, there was nobody there to hold on to me. I didn't want anyone to hold on to me. Until you. And I got through and I got by, and it was okay. But I think, maybe, if I'd just kept getting through and getting by, I'd have come to a point where I couldn't do it anymore. And if I couldn't do it anymore, it'd be the end of me, Roarke. So when you hold on to me, You're helping me stand up, one more time. And the dead, you're standing for them, too. I just wanted to say that."
