Loyalty in Death (In Death #9)
An unknown bomber is stalking New York City. He is sending Eve Dallas taunting letters promising to wreak mass terror and destruction among the "corrupt masses." And when his cruel web of deceit and destruction threatens those she cares...more
It may be entirely my fault, though. I brought it along to read during a weekend seminar retreat and was just too busy to concentrate on the book. I was tired and constipated and Eve really irked me in this book.
I did enjoy seeing McNab and Peabody getting it on together, finally, but the evil plot-evil group thing felt very...more

This book has lots going on, but the main focus is on finding and stopping a terrorist group. Eve must find out where the next attack will be so she can prevent damage and save hundreds, if not thousands of people. At the same time she must also deduce who is behind this group and bring them down. Intertwined in this investigation Eve must help Peabody’s brother, who has become a murder suspect. There is plenty of action and fair amount of suspense as the story build...more
This is probably going to be the last book I read in 2010... unless I can eeke out another one tomorrow? I've got some homework, but its not pressing, yet, so maybe...
This one was a little bit different. At least in that Dallas is up against some terrorists and mass murder instead of serial killer kind of thing. The edition I have has the Twin Towers displayed on the cover, which was a little weird when I noticed it (actually, I guess the last one, "Conspiracy in Death" does as...more
Eve has consistently been a difficult character to like, but I have to say that I found her particularly unlikable for the better part of this book. Just when I thought Nora Roberts was prog...more
Loyalty in Death has one of the best endings in so far in the series! It kept me on my toes and got my heart jackhammering in my chest! But before I talk about the ending, let’s start from page one...
My favourite cop, Lieutenant Eve Dallas has a murder case where a wife has literally screwed her husband over. When Lisbeth literally drills her cheating husband to a wall with one of his power tools, Eve doesn’t think her life could get worse. But then she starts getting these suspicious notificati...more

That said, Anne Malloy just felt manipulative, and I hate when authors do things like that. Also, I called the case early on, minus some of the family details.
The Eve and Roarke shifted be...more
A wealthy tools & toy manufacturer is killed by his jealous girlfriend(Lizabeth). She seems to get off light and Dallas still continues the investigation hoping to find some fault in Lizabeth's story. In the meantime Peabody's brother has...more
Eve Dallas just can't miss. After nine books, I'm starting to notice some patterns and repeated ideas within the series, quite naturally so. Such as Roarke ALWAYS somehow managing to get involved in Eve's cases. Not that I really mind; I want him on the scene. But even with this slight repetitiveness, I've still thoroughly enjoyed every single one of the books so far, and I'm...more
I was truly surprised with the who dunnit in this book and the author wrapped it all nicely and answered all my questions. You know the ones: Where the h*** did that come from? and Why? Why...more
Kali ini eve berhadapan dengan sebuah kelompok yg bernama Cassandra. Nama cassandra sendiri sebenarnya di ambil dari mitologi Yunani. Sang peramal yg ramalan nya di abaikan oleh orang orang. Nama tersebut di berikan oleh dewa Apollo, saudara Artemis.
Nama organisasi teroris dalam novel ini semua mengandung nama mitol...more

All the while, Eve is also investgating another murder of the owner of a well known toy and tool campany. It seems straight forward, angry lover kills him in bit of ra...more
The start was kind of slow but then it got better.
It is a good book where many aspects, characters and their relationships take time to evolve so we can go on with new facts in the rest of the serie I think.
Eve is investigating two case. In one of them a terririst group is threatening to blow the city of New York. When the threats come nearer home she has to move fast.
Also - interesting that the book mentioned the Twin Towers as a terrorist target. Obviously, seeing as how the towers are already gone, they won't be in Eve's world in 2058. They've been gone for over a decade and it's still weird when they pop up in movies and books.
Also, in reading #9 and #10 concurrently I...more
I was confused with the introduction of Zeke and admit to skim reading his sections because how could he be part of the main story?? Silly, silly me. I should know by now!
The back story and interweaving subplots was amazing. The amount of deaths and the calculating minds of some of these criminals is shocking. A smart criminal is much, much more terrifying then the standard crim.
What a dramatic and theatrical ending. One of my...more
Completely unrelated, and nothing at all to do with the story, but something that struck me toward the end - I guess it's been long enough since 9/11 that seeing such a casual mention of the Tw...more
Eleanor Marie Robertson was born on October 10, 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, U.S.A. She was the youngest of the five children, also the only girl, of a marriage with Irish ancestors. 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. During her sophomore year...more
