The latest in the "In Death" series and, for me, one of the strongest. I'm amazed that a series can run this long and just get better and better instead of running out of steam. This story had Eve's partner, Detective Peabody, overhearing a conversation between two dirty cops. The plot becomes how to take them down. It doesn't sugarcoat the implications of this, which I liked. It made it feel more real. Robb has also brought back or reintroduced previous characters and given them a spin that made me smile. I went through a wide rang of emotions reading this book. It was tense, funny, emotional and gripping for me. I knew what the outcome would be, but it was never obvious how it would be achieved. I also like that the character of Eve is finally maturing and able to overcome the trauma of her childhood. There are just so many right notes in this series for me that it has become one of my favorites. It has almost none of the sex of the earliest books in the series and what is there is very tame. Pretty straight story this time. Not sure it's a read for everyone, but if you like mystery, detective work, and sharp, witty writing, you may want to give it a try. I'm not sure how anyone not familiar with the series or characters will like it, but if you know them, it's a go!
