Secrets in Death
A new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Lt. Eve Dallas must separate rumors from reality when a woman who traffics in other people’s secrets is silenced.
The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it’s not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that’s exactly what happens one cold
I wouldn't rush to buy this one straight away, but it would make a nice Christmas read for a fan. (less)
From a story perspective, DeWinter adds conflict, or at least contrast, which makes the story more…moreI think that's pretty much what Dallas thinks. :)
From a story perspective, DeWinter adds conflict, or at least contrast, which makes the story more interesting and shakes the main character's tree a little. We need to get to know her because she's there, and getting to know her will give us (and Dallas) more insight to the main character, or affect her story arc.
I predict we'll eventually like her, though she won't be most people's favorite character. I feel the same way about Louise, even though some people really love her. I think that's why the series appeals to so many people. It's a diverse group of characters that provide something for everyone.(less)
In Secrets in Death we see a whole different ball game. The central crime appears at the outset to be a one off and the solving of it is ...more
After 45 books, there’s a maturity to this series that makes it shine above most other ...more
This is the 45th book in J.D. Robb’s In Death series. I’ve been reading these books since I was 16, when I discovered that J.D. Robb was a pen name for Nora Roberts. If you’ve been following my reviews, you know that I love me some Nora. So finding out that she had an entire series that I hadn’t read, and that said series was about a homicide detective in the New York City of the future, felt like winning a literary lottery. The series was less than half of its current ...more
Too bad, she didn't have this guy to fix her. Instead she ended up dead-dead. Bummer. But, it couldn't have happened to a nicer jerk. It so happens that Larinda Mars was worse than your typical paparazzi scum, she was blackmailing paparazzi scum.
Eve and Roarke are trying to find the killer of someone with so many enemies that they probably had to hold a lottery and let the winner kill her. There are more suspects than members on a ...more
Secrets in Death reads like an extension of Echoes in Death. Our suspects occupy the same rarefied circles of the victims in Echoes, the characters are still drained from the previous case, and winter still holds the city hostage. Overall, Secrets is quiet and reflective, with the focus on Eve's chosen family and the ties that bind them rather than on the horror of people killing people. ...more
Secrets in Death was a fantastic read. The story was captivating from the very first page, and even though some books are better than other - it never stops being a thrilling ride for me. This time the plot was oddly fascinating even though it ...more
As information about the victim came to light, Eve determined she only needed to find out who had disliked Larinda the most. The amount of people under that heading was vast – ...more
Let me break it down that to you,
5 stars for Eve and Roarke loving time and the time they were spending together.
2 stars for the crimes story itself, gosh! It's bloody boring!!!!
The victim was the lady who bargain herself into one of Roarke's party in exchange for information regarding a guy who almost kill Nadine in Glory in Death!
Yeah, didn't like her and apparently she even dirtier than what it seem!!
Well, that's all really.
Trying to catch the killer didn't too difficult, rather ...more
Secrets in Death struck me as a more quiet, intimate book than most of its predecessors. While the crime is gruesome, the victim herself is a villain of sorts so it’s hard to feel sorry that ...more
I love this series I have all ...more
Anyhoo, a gossip ...more
Every now and then I need my Eve and Roarke fix, so I was pretty much dying by the time I got this book in my hands. Things take a dark turn when Larinda Mars, a professional gossip, is murdered in one of Roarke’s hotspots. As it turns out, she experienced an altercation right before her death and now Eve is on the hunt to find out how she was killed. But as the secrets start to come out, she learns that Larinda was actually a blackmailer. She had a lot of people in her hands, which means ...more
This one dragged a bit for me! Couldn't really get into it as much as the other books. I remember back in the day I used to fly through a book a day!! It has taken me nearly 2 weeks to finish this one. Not a bad read overall but not my favourite.
"You're going to tell me you admired him?"...more
"Well now, there was a time in my youth when he was a hero for certain, scooping up funds like candy drops and bolloxing up the system with keystrokes and vision. No question at all he was bleeding
Also, I like how the intimate scenes felt a bit longer than in previous books. That is, it didn't immediately fade to black, and I guess it felt slightly more descriptive. Perhaps that's just me and my wishful thinking. Lol!
It has great Roarke-Eve action, an interesting murder, blackmail, a little bit of angst (not too much), and some great scenes to tickle the funny bone.
Purple boots (or was it aubergine?)!
Another outstanding book by dear Nora. I can't keep repeating how much I adore this series.. oh, wait! Yes I can!!! I can better than a caner can can a can!
That was lame..
Anyway this was amazing as always. In Death series with its characters always give me the best feels!
And now of course I can't wait for the next one!
P.S. High key hoping this series never ends! :)
It isn’t just Eve and Roarke. I have come to love Peabody, McNab, Nadine, Summerset, Morris, Mavis, Feeney, Baxter, Trueheart, Mira, Whitney and even Galahad. Each of these characters add a creative thread to the stories. ...more
That doesn't detract from the fact that Eve Dallas is an incredibly absorbing character, as she was here, but I guess I feel at this point she is going around in circles.
Writing still great. I just think maybe I'm tiring of ...more
Well, this was one of my least favorite stories, mostly due to how little contact we have with the usual cast. Sure there's a dab of Peabody and McNab with a touch of Feeney, Morris, and the squad. Mira's only mentioned. DeWinter actually feels as if she has a bigger part! Although ...more
He trailed his fingers over the lace, over those firm breasts, teasing them both, then flicked open the tiny front hook to free her to his hands.
And when her heartbeat quickened, to his mouth.
Her breath caught. It always did. That rush, that punch of feelings, the impossible knots of them tangled in that mad swirl of sensation as he took her over as no one else ever had, ever could.
