it was amazing
Read from October 11 to 17, 2012

JD continues to amaze with the quality of this lengthy series, “Delusion” indeed being the 35th entry! A great plot hook gets the story into immediate high gear, as in a horrific scene in a restaurant, 80+ patrons go berserk and basically kill each other. Next day we get a repeat in a similar café, although the police are able to stun more patrons and save a few lives. Naturally our leading lady Lt. Eve Dallas, with hubby Roarke and the whole familiar police crew, are wildly busy; but the way in which the clues to who is doing what are reeled out keeps us in terrific suspense till near then end when a solution seems imminent. That a few chapters remain when things look wrapped up only adds to the delight as a late plot twist adds more fuel to a suspenseful fire.

While she was at it, the author seems to wrap up most of Eve’s psychological problems from her Dallas (Texas) episode of a couple of books back, which was both satisfying and welcome, as we were getting a little tired of that mess. So we can best sum up by claiming Robb’s latest to be one of the finest in this prolific set!
