Even the ever hilarious and good-for-a-laugh Peabody was subdued in this one, no thanks to MacNab being a total wolly. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as much fun as others have been.
There's an assassin on the move in Eve's New York, one that's been on the FBI's most-wanted files for decades. His methods are brutal and hard to read about. I find that sometimes having to listen to the details of the crimes and get inside the...more
This is one of the novels where long-standing personal ties get entangled with Eve's case, and things go real south. Always when one of the lieutenant's close circle gets a connection with the crime the book is filled with tension and angst and difficult decisions.
This one was chained to Roarke.
Eve got one closed case, but she and her hurband left it with heavy hearts and thoughts.
I really loved this one.
Embora este seja o 12º livro da série, é o primeiro que eu leio; portanto, posso apenas opinar sobre Traição Mortal como livro isolado. Já conhecia, no entanto, Eve Dallas de Naque...more

Robb, J.D. (aka Nora Roberts) - 12th in series
When a maid at the Roarke Palace Hotel is murdered by a hitman for the elite, Lieutenant Eve Dallas suspects that someone who wants her husband dead may be connected to the crime.
I love this series. It is suspenseful and sexy.
I loved the fast-paced scenes where Eve tries to capture the hired killer with little results.
Nevertheless, I was completely focused on the hired killer that I was flabbergasted to know who was actually behind the killings. No time...more

That makes you sort of like Summerset's daughter-in-law."
Horror drained all color from Eve's cheeks. All she could do was press
a hand to her stomach. "Jesus, I feel sick."
Haha! I really loved this book....anything that has to do with Roarke's past is alright by me. I enjoyed meeting Mick, and the ending had me choking up.
I'm very distraught over the state of affairs between Peabody and McNab...hope this is cleared up soon. I'...more
I love it when the crime is personal. Of course everything lead to Roarke but oh this crime was directed at him and it didn't sit well with Eve. I didn't think Eve can be anymore sturdy, commanding and bad-ass, I was wrong. The usual company were a joy to read: Summerset's raw confession, McNabb & Peabody's fight, Com Whitney supporting his team and of course Feeney blowing the fuse. They were always supportive of Eve but this was the perfect crime and the perfect plan coming togeth...more

About the author there's not much that can be said. I'm accustomed do her writing but I can state that In Death series has made me come to peaceful terms with the author because she has made me again yearn to devour the book. It's been awhile since I've felt that need.
It's great do find again the great pleasure I've always found in this author's books. that's why...more

Eve: "Up yours.”
Peabody's eyes popped. "Sir?"
"I'm going down to maintenance, and I'm going locked and loaded. I'm taking those piss-brain sons of bitches out, one by one. Then I'm going to haul what's left of the bodies into my vehicle and set it on fire."
"Jesus, Dallas, I thought we had a red flag."
"I've got a red flag. I've got one." Her eyes wheeled to Peabody. "I've got under fifty miles on my ride since those lying, cheating, sniveling shitheads said it was road ready. Road ready? Do you want me to tell you about road ready?"
"I would like that very much, Lieutenant. If you'd sheathe that knife first.”
