Memory in Death (In Death, #22)
by J.D. Robb
by J.D. Robb
** spoiler alert ** J.D. Robb is the pseudonym of Nora Roberts, better known for what I understand are romance novels [but since I've only ever read one of these and it only because it was related to the In Death series, I can't say for sure]. Memory In Death is somewhere in the middle of the series, which is set about 50 years into the future and follows the career of New York Police and Security Department Lieutenant Eve Dallas. In this particular book, she and her partner, Detective Peabody, are in the midst of closing a spectacularly pedestrian case when Eve walks into her office to find one of her former foster mothers sitting there. Since I presume that anyone who bothers to pick up this book is going to read the back of it, I'll tell you that it's not very much later that Trudy Lombard is dead. And it's up to Eve to find out the who and the why - but for the first time in her career, she's faced with a victim that she can't feel for. While this is not the best book in the series, and I personally found the question of who did the killing to be fairly obvious, readers who enjoy the series will enjoy the book and the insights into Eve's past that it gives. Besides which, it's a murder mystery and those are always fun. You can always pick up a different one in the series - you don't have to read them in order and it's usually more difficult to work out who the murderer is than in this particular case [for example: Conspiracy in Death] or, even when Eve herself knows who it was from the start - how do you prove it and what were they doing anyway [eg: Origin in Death].
