Beware of spoilers
It’s 2059 and nearing Roarke and Eve’s one year anniversary. Not that there is much time to celebrate now that a convicted killer was released from prison for good behavior and is back to her old tricks; killing powerful and wealthy men by poisoning their drinks. Eve put her in a cage once and it’s her job to do it again. Especially now that Roarke is a target.
I found this installment to be a bit on the dull side. I didn’t even wan...more

Reunion in Death is the sixteenth instalment in the In Death series by J.D. Robb. To date she has written 40 books in the series, with two more expected to be released in the fall of 2011. These are crime drama, suspense and roma...more
Julianna Dunne never forgot the woman who helped put her away. A woman should never go against another woman. Men were the enemy.
Interspersed with the drama of the poisonings by Julianna, is the normal drama of being a cop with family and friends. A co...more
J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) is writing this "... In Death" series at the incredible pace of two per year. The debut in 1995 opened us to a new world of NYC homicide crimes set in the year 2058. Various high tech phones, personal air travel vehicles, and human-like "droids" (worker-bees) add an imaginative touch to these police procedurals. In this the 14th of the set, homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas, along with a now familiar cast of reg...more
Eve and Roarke are alive and kicking (that's more that can be said considering the risks these two put themselves under...lol).
In this book Eve realizes that system is sometimes less than perfect and killers are often let loose. This cold blooded killer kills with poison and she makes Roarke her personal target to get back at Eve. Together Roarke and...more
A man is poisoned at his 60th birthday party and no one can figure out why. He was beloved by friends and family. Eve quickly figures out that an old nemesis of hers has been released from prison and is looking to have a little reunion...more
Except for the frustrations wherein the culprit kept on escaping Eve's clutches, nothing else.
WHAT I LOVED ABOUT THE BOOK:
1. God. I love the adrenaline rush that this gave me after Eve went after Julianna Dunne one time after another, only to end up failing soon afterwards. There was always a gripping urgency to get her caught as the killer has this unquenched thirst for murder. Although not as full of gore as most of her other books, this novel still makes up to it b...more
REUNION IN DEATH is hands down the best book in the series. It could possibly be one of the best books I’ve ever read. I consider all the In Death books to be above most books in terms of writing and characters but with this book, Robb has really surpassed herself exponentially.
Robb takes a different approach to this book. We find out who the killer is early on, but in order to shut her down, we need to find the motive. As a birthday party becomes a murder scene, Eve Da...more

First of all, sorry for my English =)
Apparently Eve and Roarke have married for one year in this book, 12 months with 12 books. Means one month one book for each event *weird conclusion*.
Unfortunately the characters' interaction in this book are less than the other books, for me. Maybe because, the book focus on Eve. So the story is really about her. Summerset, McNab, and Mavis only appear briefly.
But the interaction between Eve and Roarke, yes it is h...more

I wrote that when I heard it , about 30 minutes into the audio book. Now that I've finished, it doesn't even feel like the same book. This book felt a little like a bunch of short stories and plot points in the Eve Dallas universe crammed together to make a whole book. The main case in this books was not interesting enough to really grab me. There was no mystery. The murderer was identified right away and the parts of the book about it w...more
In this one, Eve has to go to Dallas to interview a possible victim. And she could easily ignore the city and go home right away, but she decides to confront her memories, all of which are getting stronger while she is with Roarke. Probably because she can handle them now that she had someone to help her.
The mystery is a woman serial killer that Eve helped put away nine years...more
That being said Julianna was a refreshing. She was a "Bad Guy" who killed men because she liked to kill. She believed all men were unfaithful and deserved to die. She's bea...more
This one starts off with a man dropping dead on his birthday, from being poisoned with Cyanide, in front of nearly 200 people. Even investigates and thanks to the slip of a tongue by Roarke, soon realizes she knows the killer already. Through investigating previous cases and ta...more
With some down time following a two-week vacation in 2058, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas decides it is time for Officer Peabody to become primary on a case, a six-year-old cold case. The case they catch later that night also harks back to the past, and a killer Eve already caged once. Moreover, with Peabody's parents in town for a surprise visit, family is much on Eve's mind....more
Some installments are very good, and some I just love. This book falls into the love category for me. Eve takes a trip to Dallas, TX and relives and confronts the childhood nightmare that has been haunting her and edging closer to the surface all year long. It's hard to make me cry, but Robb did it with this heart-wrenching scene.
Then we have Eve and Rourke's one year anniversary, and trust, he put AL...more

Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline.
