Divided in Death (In Death #18)
She screamed once. Something, someone slipped out of the shadows. She collapsed beside the dead who had betrayed her.
Approaching her cheating husband and lying best friend, Reva Ewing is bent on revenge. But somebody got there first. In a desperate fight to prove her innocence Reva calls on the only man she can trust: Roarke, the roguish husband of Lieutenant Eve Dallas.
"I can't step aside on this, not even for you."...more
"If you could step aside on this, even for me, you wouldn't be the man I fell for in the first place, would you?"
"Remember this moment, won't you,
I adore Roarke. His love for Eve is unwavering.
“I love you.” His lips formed the words against her breast. “I’m lost in love with you.”
Eve…..his cop. She loves Roarke endlessly. He is her rock.
“You’re the love of my life. I don’t care how corny that sounds. You’re the start of i ...more
Eve to Roarke: “If you ended up naked and dead with another woman, I’d do the rumba on your corpse.”
“You can’t do the rumba.”
“I’d take lessons first.”
He laughed, rubbed a hand over her thigh. “You might very well, not that you’ll ever get the chance. But you’d also grieve.”
I love, love the fashion touches in all the books!!! It’s so believable! I keep seeing Ian and his crazy dresses!!!

8/18/15 Another re-read...sometimes it's just great to go back and read the 'classics.':)
I did like this one though in the fact of who/what her enemy was. Who doesn't love a good conspiracy? A ...more
A colleague and friend of Roarke is suspected of killing her husband, but for Eve the pieces are falling into place too easily. After finding data corruption on multiple computers, she suspects techno-terrorists.
During the investigation, information about Eve past comes to light. All she want to do is leave the past where it belongs and try and deal with what she learns, b ...more
I found that Roarke and his "big balls" were a bit too big and his thinking so very narrow-minded. I guess J.D. Robb likes to confirm his violent tendencies. I know Roarke will go to any extent to protect Eve, but how could he not clue in to her feelings about the whole HSO business.
Anyways, 2 thumbs up and 5 stars for Eve and Roarke!
I can't believe I am still not bored by this series, it just gets better. I really missed all the characters but didn't know how much till I started reading this. Another great exciting read. New info on Eve's past is reveale ...more
The year is 2059. It is a future in which technology and humanity collide, and a new computer virus has become the latest form of terrorism.
Reva Ewing, a former member of the Secret Service, a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises, is a prime suspect in a double homicide. She had every reason to want to kill her husband, the renowned artist Blair Bissel. Not only was he having an affair, he was having it with her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who's on the case, believes Re ...more
Reva irritated me sometimes.
The conflict between Eve and Roarke was sensible and was resolved in a real way. Loved it. That's what I call compromise for the sake of marriage.
Back to the story. An innocent woman who w ...more
This wasn't a favorite, but I think it's still an important book to read in the series. The series tends to be very repetitive and predictable; and there are a few books that come off as near identical copies of previous ones. Despite this, I can't seem to stop reading them.
Divided in Death does, however, uncover some new details concerning Eve's father and her childhood. Some of this new information causes an argument between Eve and Roarke, which ends up becoming one of the main plot ...more
This story was a little less enjoyable for me than the usual ones, mostly because of the fairly complicated story. There was a lot of political-related stuff and th ...more
The latest case has possible ties to the government, giving Roarke an excuse to hack said records, and he finds more info on Eve's father. Roarke wants revenge on those responsible, and this puts a strain on the marriage, as it goes against all Eve stands for as a cop. As a romance story, it is all very poignant how he gives up his chance at vengeance to appease his wife's sensibilities (in the name of love!), but it is yet another example where Roarke puts more into this re ...more
