This is the 8th in the In Death series.

It is early winter right after the New Year 2059 and Eve is called to the murder scene of a sidewalk sleeper. Wondering why "homicide lite" simply doesn't handle the case, Eve quickly learns the reason why. The old homeless man who was murdered had his heart neatly, surgically removed.

At the crime scene Eve bumps heads with a troublemaker cop who has been jealous of Eve since the academy days when Eve, even then, was a star on the fast track.

What is there to say that hasn’t been said countless times by JD Robb? She’s brilliant and Conspiracy in Death, the eight book in the In Death series is great!

Eve Dallas is simply the best at what she does. And others have started to take notice. When a fellow cop, Bowers the bitch starts hassling Eve on her turf, Eve has no choice but to defend herself. With a few heated words and early threats, things seem to be close to its boiling point rather than simmering down.
This one kicked me right in the teeth. I am so invested in these characters, and this was the book that almost broke Eve, and the way that is written? Holy. Just holy mother of gut punchers. Every character comes to bat in this one for Eve and that alone had me squeezing the life out of the book. And then you have Roarke and you have his relationship with Eve and the combination of what he's thinking up against what he knows he has to do for her? This has to be one of the most interesting and de ...more
Wow. Just wow. This is one of my favorite books in the series to date. It was, quite simply, fabulous.

Whether you've read one book in the series or eight, you know one simple fact. Eve is a cop. It's everything to her. Her role as a police officer is tangled up with her identity as a person. Her self worth, her purpose in life, is all tied into her job. In this book that is taken away and it breaks her. She is not the tough as nails cop that we have seen before. She gains a fragility and vulner

What can I say? For the longest time I listed Conspiracy as my favorite book. Louise Dimatto becomes entrenched in the series, all the angst I can handle with Eve losing her badge, and Mira weeping at the fashion show. Re-reading it for the fifth or sixth time it does seem to drag in parts. Still a great read and a terrific final scene.

As with the other books in this series there is lots going on in the life of Eve Dallas and Roarke certainly was with her all the way.

Again another great book in the series

At the murder scene of a street-sleeper, an urban outdoorsman, a 'throwaway', a rare scene with uniforms has Eve not so much exchanging pleasantries but the intrepid detective is on the receiving end of idol worship and respect from one officer and inexplicable hostility and resentment from the other. Officer Troy Trueheart catches the eye of Peabody and we're off.

Yet again Lieutenant Eve Dallas is standing for the weak, the unprotected and the dead in this provocative outing. A serial killer c

This was another re-read for me, and another sweet memory. Trueheart is introduced here, the sweetheart he is, and Eve gets suspended from her job. I loved, just loved how Roarke manipulates her to get her out of her gloom and doom. A great read as usual!

Conspiracy in Death was the first In Death book that just didn't grab and hold my attention like the others in the series. I mean there were moments where I was interested in the mystery and what was going on, but then moments would come where it lost me. I would almost have more enjoyed the whole book to focus on Eve regaining her badge instead of that incident stemming from the case Eve was working on. I think there could have been a good story where Eve just butted heads with Bowers, Bowers w ...more
Este Conspiracy In Death surpreendeu-me do início ao fim. Foi um livro cheio de inspiração.

As personagens que já tão bem conhecemos - Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNab e o Feeney - estiveram excepcionalmente bem.
Para não falar que o Feeney teve uma parte muito importante neste livro, na minha opinião.
E este caso, um dos mais intrigantes que li até agora - envolvia desta vez, muitos elementos importantes. Foi giro ver um caso que prejudicava ou metia muita gente ao barulho, por assim dizer, e não apena

I'm loving these police procedurals and am racing through this series. What will I read when I'm done? I've even put off reading the latest Elemental Assassin (one of my faves) because I am absorbed in Eve and Roarke.

It was great to see the other side of Eve. Poor Eve. I was a bit angry at Roarke for not being very sympathetic for long but I guess he know what she needed.

The mind of the author is truly terrifying sometimes...and maybe I am for reading this two. The homicide cases seem to get mor

Es beginnt mit einem toten Obdachlosen zu dessen Leiche Eve Dallas im Morgengrauen zusammen mit Officer Peabody gerufen wird. Als sie der Polizistin vor Ort eine Rüge wegen nachlässiger Tatortabsicherung vorwirft, wird die Sache unschön. Officer Bowers reicht Beschwerde gegen sie ein, was Eve anfangs noch kalt lässt. Dem Opfer wurde sauber das Herz entfernt, eine Tat die auf einen Spezialisten hinweist und bald hat Eve das Drake Center und deren renommierte Ärzte auf dem Schirm. Eve setzt Feeney ...more

These books are truly popcorn for the mind... there's really no nutritional value in them, but they are super easy to read and I know I'm always guaranteed certain scenarios -- there will always be a good love scene between Eve and Rourke; there will always be some sort of twisty murder mystery that isn't *too* taxing on the brain to solve; there will always be witty comebacks between Eve and Peabody and Somerset and McNab and Feany (and the rest of the gang!). Each one always seems to be better ...more

Unnerved, Summerset moved quickly to the communication center. “Roarke, the lieutenant has just come in from outside. She wore no outer gear. She looks very bad.”

“Where is she?”

“She's heading up. Roarke, I insulted her and...she apologized to me. Something must be done.”

This was quite the doozy. I did not envy Eve Dallas in this installment whatsoever, other than being married to the richest dreamboat this side of the galaxy. I only docked one star because all the cops are referred only by their surnames and it was starting to become confusing. I did like the addition of Dr. Louise who I believe is going to be a regular character. She's the perfect mix of sassy and smart all packed into a fairy's body. Conspiracy in Death is a great addition to the series, even ...more

There were so many great things about this book, I can not even begin to mention them all. I've re-read it many times and each time find new nuances that strike me from familiar scenes. This time around I was struck by Feeney's feelings when Eve was stripped of her badge and some things he said after they had gone "rogue" and were continuing to investigate together. As always my favorite part of the book is when Roarke has to verbally kick at Eve to bring her out of her grief. Then later, after ...more
RATING: 3.5 stars.

Really liked this one. I guess having waited a few months between book 7 and book 8 made me appreciate this more. Also, we spend a while with Eve and Roarke and Eve finally shows signs of weakness (which was positive).

Full review to come. Maybe.


Para mudar um pouco "de ares", decidi retomar a leitura da série "Mortal" de J.D. Robb (ou Nora Roberts). A minha última leitura, em finais de agosto do ano passado, tinha sido pouco satisfatória, talvez porque tinha
This one was lets pound on Eve book. This one cop got a major hate on Eve from the first time they meet, and was gunning for her since. And not only that she has street walkers who are being cut open and there insides are going missing. So even though Eve tries to keep her mind on her case its hard when she's getting reported on. Loved how frustrating, and heartbreaking this one is and I was so happy that Roake was there through it all.
The bad thing about series that go on as long as the In Death one has is that you can't discuss the books without being repetitive or going too much into spoiler territory. However, I have to say that this book was awesome! I found myself crying for the last third of the book! The mystery angle was a bit weak, but engrossing nonetheless. I loved seeing how everyone rallied around Eve and how we got to see just how strong she really was, as well as how stubborn her nature really was. I truly need ...more

Mais um volume da serie in death e mais uma "aventura" da Dallas e do seu grupo.
Neste livro podemos ver uma série de assassínios que nas mãos de qualquer outro policia passariam despercebidos, mas para Eve todas as vidas devem ser vingadas e mesmo encontrando-se numa situação de desvantagem ela consegue resolver o caso.

Uma vez mais, não tinha ideia de quem era o cabecilha por detrás da operação (view spoiler)

Doctors hands contain both the power to heal life and deliver death.

When Eve shows up to a homicide involving a sidewalk-sleeper with a hole where his heart used to be; this case takes on a whole new take. Cops and Doctors are the same when one of them is threatened they tighten up and protect one another. So that's what Eve is up against in this book of the 'in death' series. She must connect the dots (bodies) and collect the clues all while being put up against the wall of Doctors.

This is my fave book of the series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This book was a personal attack on Eve like never before. And the case was one of a kind, not only that I think this is the first time we’ve ever seen Eve break down into pieces she was shattered. I think even Roarke got scared, but of course he was just as sexy and as in control when he had to be, but I think this was a turn in their relationship. The very first time that Roarke ever got to see Eve be so broken down the way she was, hurting and h
