I can't help it. I could read Robb's In Death series over and over. It's romantic, it's sci-fi, it's got mystery and action, and it's funny with great characters.

I adore how Roarke counters Eve in his caring, his loving, and his coping(!). His humorous approach to Eve's hard edges makes me laugh while Eve cracks me up with her terror of the feminine and the unknown realm of relationships. It balances her dogged pursuit of the bad guy.

The quirks and foibles of the people she works with make them

This series is brilliant.the characters enchant you and the setting, a little futuristic to entice you but not going over the edge.
The books are easy to read,meant in a positive way.You can't put them down and look forward to the next one.They have something for everyone,romance,intrique,murder and humour.
Well placed on my favourites shelf.

J. D. Robb is Nora Roberts' pseudonym, and this series is now many novels long. She writes one to two a year for this series alone, as well as more under her author name, Nora Roberts.
I love this series and collect them all as they are published. I've read them all several times and enjoy them every time, though the first is the best! If you enjoy futuristic novels with strong leading women, where the plot is twisted and never lets you relax for long, then Eve Dallas and company are a good choi

I have probably read ALL of Nora Robert's books & all of these under her pseudonym, JD Robb. I HEART Nora! I know it's fiction, trite and romance in some cases, but she does it very well. She makes it believable, and you care for the characters & are whisked away from your troubles for the duration of the book..who cares if the stove is on fire? ;) Great books all of hers. I don't know what the titles are of hers that I've read, just know pretty much all. My husband reads them too, and t ...more

I love reading and re-reading anything in the In Death series! While I haven't gotten around to reading the most recent releases (the past six or so) I have them (or my mom has them...) and I hope to read them soon! These books are definitely worth a read if you like mystery with a bit of romance. I am not a big fan of romance but the fact that it isn't a main plot point of this series, no matter what other things Nora Roberts writes, makes these books a joy to read.

I am so adicted to the In-Death series from J.D. Robb/aka Nora Roberts - I'm on book 16... Great fantasy, mystery, crime, romance, excitement and adventure all rolled into a series with characters who pop off the page.

I completely am in love with this series! My only regret is that I can't find them all at my Libraries that I have access to! Specifically I'm looking for them in Audio books as I'm in my car a lot of the time in the day. I have one in my car, and I have a different one I listen to in my bedroom!

Roberts never fails to give her reader's a character to enjoy, love and appreciate. a good read, entertaining, touching with a bit of humor to balance the dark theme of murder. another piece you won't put down till you've read the last page.

Great start to an incredible series! These books grip you from the start. Very intriguing characters that can't help but root for. The chemistry between Roarke and Eve is hilarious, passionate, and forever bonding. Love these books.

To read an "in Death"... is to love the characters. Its best to start from the begining and grow with them. You actually start to think of them as friends. Roberts is by far the best writer of this century. Keep them coming.

In Death series is the most excited and best crime novels I have read. Love Eve Dallas and her mysterious husband Roark. Part mystery, part sci-fi, part romance - these books have it all! one of my guilty pleasures!

I've read Naked and Glory so far and they're good. Easy reading-you can finish one in a day or two. Pretty good mystery too. I haven't figured out either one until the end.

A great way to start off the Eve Dallas books. I happened upon this after having read about 10 of the others. I am so happy to have found it, I have lent it to a friend who had never read J.D. Robb.

These are my absolute favorite series. They are the only set I read and re read regularly. Love all the characters. They are old friends at this point.

I have really enjoyed this series so far. A futuristic spin that threw me at first, but I adapted. I love all of the main characters!

Love this series!!!! There is suspense, romance, and humor. Love the relationship between Eve and Roarke.

I am using this as a review for "Immortal in Death", which I thought was a delightful, albiet suspensful and rather disturbing, book. ^_^
David Hoyt
I give the overall series a 4. Some books are better than others, naturally. This is an omnibus version with five books. The series is best read in order, but it is not required.

Robb knows how to write romance. She includes mystery too, but I love the romance part. Love her characters.

I am a big fan of J.D Robb's style of writing. Her books always give me a boost. The sarcasm, drama and passion makes a reader envious.
