In some ways this "in Death" book is possibly the best of the series in that it really emphasizes the futuristic element of the books while maintaining the mystery and romance aspects. The premise on which the book is based is fantastic and hopefully will always remain pure fantasy, but it has you reading as fast as you can to find out what will happen next. Once again you know who the killer is early on, but do you? Only in the most superficial way. As the action develops, you learn more and more until you really get to know the killer by the end and find yourself cheering her on. Roberts is amazing in her ability to manipulate the reader to jump from one side to the complete opposite in the course of one plot. Favorite scenes? Roarke dealing with the idea of inviting his Irish family for Thanksgiving and Eve coming face to face with the crawling Cassie. Mira and Eve arguing. Trina and the girls' night at Roarke's place. Crack dropping his street slang to accept Eve's invitation for Thanksgiving. Sinead watching Eve lose it when she realizes the significance of Diana. Reo flirting with McNab and Peabody's reaction. And last but not least - THE COAT.
