Judgment in Death (In Death #11)
★★★★★ & a W.O.W! (This is a review of the audiobook.) I feel like a parrot, because I keep saying this, but this series just keeps getting better and better. This is certainly due, in large part, to Susan Ericksen’s excellent narration. She knows these characters so well and is so versatile with the voices. Love the rugged, poetic Irish lilt of Roarke’s voice; the friendly airiness of Mavis’s; the professional, dependable, but decidedly sassy Detective Delia Peabody’s...more
This time around, Eve's hunting a cop killer. A cop killer who seems to be killing cops who may or may not be on the take. Naturally, cops don't like to be investigated, especially by another cop, so Eve's not too popular - but, being Eve, that makes no difference at all to her doing what she has to do...more
Seriye bir süre ara verdikten sonra hafta içi alıp anında okumaya başladığım 11. Eve ve Roarke kitabı da bitti. Her kitapta ayrıca seviyorum demiş miydim daha önce? Büyük ihtimalle dedim. Bad-ass hatunumuz Eve ve de sert İrlanda viskisi tadındaki Roarke, kitabı okurken sizi kendilerine çeken ana karakterlerimiz. Hiç okumayanlar için kısa bir özet geçeyim: Her ikisinin de sorunlu çocuklukları vardır, çocukluğundaki olaylar Evve'i pol...more
It is early Spring 2059 and Eve is called to the scene of a bludgeoning death in a classy, upscale strip club called Purgatory. The condition of the body is a testament to a rage kill and scattered amongst the remains are 30 pieces of silver.
Eve learns that the dead man was a cop and had once been a part of a police task force formed to put away a notorious criminal. But evidence was compromised, the case disintegrated and the criminal got away.
Beware of spoilers!
It’s spring 2059 and Eve Dallas is called to a case where a fellow police officer was murdered. He was bludgeoned to death with a metal baseball bat inside a club that is owned by Eve’s husband, Roarke, nonetheless.
Then, a second police officer is murdered and Eve finds a link; they’re both dirty cops. But as Eve digs deeper she discovers that the first cop was only made to look dirty and was part of a secret operation in internal affairs.
Obviously, the In Death Series has some trends that are present in all of the books. However, I thoug...more
To make matters more complicated, there seems to be a link to an old business associate of Roarke's, from the days when not all Roarke's ventures were as above boar...more
In an uptown strip joint, a cop is found bludgeoned to death. The weapon's a baseball bat. The motive's a mystery. It's a case of serious overkill that pushes Eve Dallas straight into overdrive. Her investigation uncovers a private club that's more than a hot spot. Purgatory's a last chance for atonement where everyone is judged. Where your ultimate fate depends on your most intimate sins. And where one cop's hidden secrets are about to plunge innocent souls into vice-ridden damnation...From

This time Eve meets full-out resistence, is lebelled as the bitch that turn on her own and is shun and despised by those who should stand behind her and help her on. Trying to make good on catching the killer of cops, and going after a cop puts her in a spot of complete isolation and anger.
The case is charged and intense, but so are the ties Eve has with her team and loved ones.
And that's why I consumed it for one day. Robb fans will love it.

5-Personality of the murderer
1. The graphic images of this book was more than enough, with blood dripping from here to there, staining badges and God knows what else. I especially liked the second killing, that of Mills, whose innards just decided to squiggle away from the viscera. Nice touch.
2. I don't think there were any interesting sub plots there as I don't consider Ricker a sub plot as much as...more
This is a good futuristic suspense novel featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas. She is a tough, smart, likable homicide detective. In each book she solves a crime and finds the killer. The book also encompasses her entire life including her personal relationships. Eve is investigating the murder of a young police officer. What at first appears to be a brutal killing soon turns out to involve a large conspiracy.

There was a bit more fighting between Eve and Roarke in this book - the evil villian Ricker apparently getting under Roarke's skin. But they'd still do anything for each other and are just trying to figure out how move into the next stage of thier relationship... and how to handle each other as they are both hot-tempered characters! I may have mentioned this before, but Eve and Roarke remind me so much of Cat and Bones from the Night Huntress series. Eve, like Cat, is a strong wom...more
And we're back for book 11 in the In Death series with a gruesome killing spree that puts a taint on everything Eve Dallas stands for. As usual—and this is something that I find quite comical at this point—there's a connection to Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke.
Well, he does own half the planet!
I thought the crime and mystery aspect was a great improvement over the last one. There's nothing Eve won't do to avenge the dead, and it hits e...more
Not just one where it's about knocking boots and oh, baby, but where the voice is crooning and you just want to take your clothes off and please, let's make this happen.
That's Roarke. And that's Eve. And them together? Jesus. It's just so good. So when you take that good and you put a pretty crazy murder mystery on top of it with conspiracy and craziness and Roarke's old connections and Eve's spitfire crew of cops? It's just so perfectly balanced. Th...more

I like how Eve and Roarke have to work at their marriage, I enjoy their interactions more than the story lines. It was nice to see Roarke being confronted with an ex of Eve's rather than the other way round.
I feel like I am visiting a friend and while I am there other friends drop in and say hi.
As I read through I think from time to time that I am reading a particularly good passage - good enough for a quote... then I think I will remember where that great paragraph was...... Wrong

A man is murdered in Purgatory. A club that also happens to be owned by Roarke. The man also happens to have been a cop. Why was he also working as a bartender? This murder starts off a story of crooked cops and an even more dangerous crime boss.

The case, Eve and Roarke's relationship, seeing Peabody and McNabb. The characters are no long news to us. This books implies a certain familiarity with the characters, their jobs and their personalities. We know what to expect from them. At least in certain areas of their life's.
That is something I really love in this series.
The idea of being able to once again see my favourite...more

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

"With her? Oh, ah, hmmm. Webster."
Silence fell, a clatter of broken bricks. Peabody folded her hands in her pockets and prepared for the explosion to follow.
"I see." When Roarke simply turned back to the screen and continued, she didn't know whether to be relieved or scared to death.”
