Apprentice in Death
Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb.
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as ...more
What did I like so much?
The story was gripping, smart and just kept ramping up the action.
Roarke was everywhere:)
There were lots and lots of funny one liners.
Eve was delightful - tears one minute, tough the next.
ALL of the current series characters appeared at some point or other.
Roarke appeared a lot:)
The interview scenes between Eve and the two ...more
In the space of a few seconds, three people at an ice skating rink in Central Park are mowed down by a sniper. Lieutenant Eve Dallas gets the case and it's a race against time as they quickly discover they are dealing with a deadly and potential serial killer.
I loved that the story begins with the killer's point of view. It really helped to keep up with a complex but brilliant procedural. Eve really has a gifted brain and fits into a leadership role so effort ...more
As Eve worked with Detective Peabody and the team, along with Ro ...more
Another good read. Can she write a "bad" 'In Death book'? Not so far, for me, at least. And this is book forty fucking three!!!
"Take care of my cop."
Eve and Roarke. Still in love. Roarke is still helping her on cases. Secondary characters are all involved. Maybe not as much as in previous books but still there.
Two killers! Or at least that is how it seems. One young, one older.
"Evil doesn't have an age."
And we had Bella's First Birthday Party!
"Das. Ork. Ta. Ta. Ta."
Eve is thawing a bit wh ...more
I loved it - have loved every book in the series - but this one is one of the best of the best. The reader gets to know who dun it very early on - but the problem is how to catch them and prevent more bloodshed. Brilliant!
The growth in the relationship between Eve and Roarke continues to delight and warm the heart. Sommerset is also an endearing character and the snarky banter ...more
43 books and still amazing! Loved this one!
“The man could stop her heart, then send it into full gallop. Just a look at him. They’d been married more than two years, she thought. Shouldn’t that ease off? Where was that in the Marriage Rules? But a man who looked like Roarke broke every rule. That absurdly beautiful face set off with the wild blue eyes of some Irish god, and the perfect poet’s mouth. The black hair, silkier than Summers ...more
I think the main reason is because after reading a lot of Jeffery Deaver and Michael Connelly the past two months, reading a JD Robb mystery/crime/romance novels is just not going to ring my bell. Usually I'm all for watching Eve, Rourke and their friends tracking down the bad guys. however, this book tells you who the perpetrators are at about the 24% point and then a major part of the book is just trying to cat ...more
In Apprentice in Death, Eve hunts a LDSK (long-distance serial killer) – a laser sniper killing from a distance. The victims seem like random choices, b ...more
“Evil doesn’t have an age.”
Yeah, that's practically sum up who the villains in this one.
I'm not sure how to review this series, because I'm such a fan girl and I feel like a teenage girl met her favorite boyband every time I got my grabby hand holding the latest Eve's and Roarke's book!
And this one? It's excellent better than the last one, oh darn! But I always said that each time the new one published! Oh well:)
Btw, can we give Nadine a boyfriend Ms Roberts?
That rockst ...more
I have reached the point of awe. How this lady does it I will never know. J.D. Robb continues to serve up a story that is intriguing, intense and filled with all the goodness I have come to expect and love.
This one kept me on my toes and at times had my heart caught in my throat. For the last 10 or so books, I have split between my kindle and audible. This narrator is fantastic. The way she captures the emotions of the charac ...more
You'd think a sniper menacing the city would provide a story with some suspense, but no!--I've had mashed potatoes that were more exciting than this ...more
Can you believe that there are already 43 books in this series already? And yet, none of these books are written the same. In APPRENTICE IN DEATH, readers are taken into the killer’s mind as they take three people out at an outdoor ice skating rink. Three people who are seemingly unconnected, but Eve Dallas thinks that there must be more to this long-distance serial killer’s motive than meets the eye.
Right from the get-go, this book delves into the police procedural aspect of the novel and in a
In my review of Brotherhood in Death, the preceding In Death installment, I raved about why I love this series and why I think this series is important. The energy behind that raving is akin to Dallas' passion for a good cup of coffee - everlasting. With any long-running series there are some books that are better than others and that 'better than' morphs from reader to reader. Brotherhood felt lik ...more
"...in Death" by numbers. With a pointless side of interior decorating.
This series grows stale (I could pretty much predict everything before it happened), and is in dire need of some sort of shakeup.
I love every character in this book and in the series and getting to know the characters in depth is one of the great parts about reading a ...more
Every character familiar to the legion of InDeath fans act, speak and behave like they have for the past ten years. Reineke will wear a stupid tie and be mocked. McNab will wear something in rainbow hues and be admired for his fashion faux pas. Mavis and Bella will make everything better by the end of the story.
The Apprentice is a cold hearted sociopath and does give us a a new term to ...more

One-Sentence Summary: Dallas and Roarke stop at nothing to stop a couple of snipers targeting New York City
Review: Even though I am far from caught up with this series, tuning into a new J.D.Robb book is like coming home. The characters, relationships, setting, future, technology, Galahad (<3) all become familiar after a couple of outings with this series and it's as comfortable to read as it would be to slouch on your settee watching the latest episod ...more
We have a father and daughter as suspects. The daughter is a psychopath trained by an expert in the science of killing. So creepy. They are both f@cked up.
It seemed this story was more focused on Eve and the changes she is embracing. It also focused on a case that was very interesting and didn't have as much from the other characters but did include many of them. As always Eve deals with some of her past issues ...more
In this book, we see echoes of the DC Sniper Case when a pair of snipers targets New Yorkers. There are some delightful touches including Hillary Rodham Clinton High School as well as the ...more
Talent that Robb (Roberts) has in spades.
Great premise, characters, and plot with a terrific ending.
Can hardly wait for the next installment.
