Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars. Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals stre ...more

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!

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

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

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 #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

Eve Dallas serisinin 13.kitabı çok sevdim bu ikiliyi okumayı çok özlemişim..Peabody ve McNab bambaşka tadı var bu serinin..Kitabın çevirisinde bir problem hissetmedim onu belirtmeliyim..

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

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 doesn ...more

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.

<5 THIS WAS A CRACKING STORY STARS

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?
NOT ME!!!!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!


Next please.
Aly is so frigging bored
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!

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 blog...at least through a review.

For newbies to the series, I'm going to provide a quick introd

Book Review: 2 Treasure Boxes

Eve is always dealing with the terrible abuse she experienced as a child. So when she comes face to face with a maniacal murder who is killing women by feeding them the rape drugs known as Rabbit and Whore, Eve once again needs to deal with what was done to her as a child while at the same time finding and stopping the murders.

Seduction in Death is the fourteenth instalment of the In Death series by J.D. Robb, to date she has written 40 books in the series, with two

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 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...

Previous books had the slightly predictable factor

Sexual homicides have always been a sore spot for Eve. It dredges up the past; that's something she'd rather not remember.
It's still rape even if the women wants to have sex if she's drugged. These victims have been seduced with poetry and roses. They've been romanced.
Her bull-headed persistence to catch the killer and her uncanny ability to get into their heads enables her to see things other people might miss.
But it isn't enough to just know the killer. It's not even enough to catch them. S

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

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 15 ...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

L-O-V-E this series!! JD Robb does an excellent job of combining suspense and humor to all of her In Death books. Eve Dallas is so feisty that you just can't help but to giggle at some of the things she says and does! This book was well written and flowed very smoothly. I love that she gives you the perspective of the police, as well as the killers. Watching it all come together is the fun part, along with the various personal relationships and struggles. I just can't get enough of these books a ...more

Rating: 3.5 stars

Review: Eve Dallas returns for more case-solving of a crime that disturbs her more than usual: young women are being "sexed to death"---wined and wooed and then drug with a lethal cocktail of substances that make them so wild in bed that they literally overload their systems and die. When more than one woman dies this way, Dallas becomes enraged at the thought that someone is using these women so brutally. What puzzles her, though, are the slight differences in the discovered sc

Roarke is in Ireland attending the memorial service for Mick, his longtime friend who took a hit meant for him at the end of the previous novel, “Betrayal in Death.” Eve makes the mistake of trying to sleep alone in their bed and is enveloped in a nightmare about her murder of her father. This nightmare goes deeper and farther than those previous as she sees the body of her father rise above her, spilling blood from the knife wounds she has inflicted. She hears his voice as he promises to make h ...more

A highlight of Seduction in Death for me is the scene in the park. JDR does a great job of painting this whole picture, from Baxter covered in mustard and smelling of urine to Eve glaring at people trying to pick her up as she tries to "walk, not stride" to her meet with Kevin to the great exchanges between Roarke and Peabody and how they drive Eve crazy.
An entertaining read with a couple of suitable cold blooded killers.
Jessa ♥dhanger♥ EvilDarkSide
Another good one. Eve and Roarke had some great moments towards the end of this book. It seems like she opens up a little more with every book. Roarke knows she loves him but it still stops his heart during those moments when she puts aside her stubborn pride and pours her emotions into him and the love they share. I don't think I'll ever get enough of reading about these two.
Sherry
JD Robb has taken the infamous “Leopold and Loeb” incident and reconfigured and dressed it up in such a way as to make it feel original. The authors shows the arrogance and pride of the perpetrators, despite their high intelligence, their disregard for human life, is no match for Eve Dallas when she is determined to seek justice on behalf of the
victims.

J D Robb always delivers quality

I never put spoilers in my reviews.
J D Robb (Nora Roberts) is one of the few author's I reread. Everything about the "in death" novels is quality writing and defies genre labeling.
From the relationship between Dallas and Rourke, the mystery/thriller storyline, an extremely strong female role model, the secondary characters, the setting, well, everything you just can't wait for the next one. She shows that a woman can be strong and capable despite soul crippling ev

Que posso dizer? Esta série é Nora Roberts num registo diferente mas sempre no seu melhor, o que nos leva a uma excelente leitura de cada vez que pegamos num livro dela.
Este livro é um pouco diferente dos anteriores, devido às características do assassino, mas mais uma vez temos homicídios sexuais, o que vai afectar Eve uma vez mais. No entanto, felizmente para ela (e para nós...) ela tem Roarke para a amparar, ajudar e sofrer com ela. No que respeita a isso, temos um momento muito enternecedor

I didn't like this one as much as the last couple. The chemical rape aspect is also a bit on the distasteful side. Eve is a bit vulnerable throughout and Peabody still has the best lines. Nice to see Dr. Louise Dimatto (I think that's her last name) again.

“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." She went out quickly, and left him staring at her.” 87 likes

"A couple of what? No, don't tell me. Don't talk to me. Don't talk to each other. Let there be silence across the land.”
