Another great book from the magic pen of J.D. Robb. Or maybe she just has a magic formula. Perhaps she keeps a list of things the fans like best, something like this.....

Each book must contain:
1. Minimum two sex scenes.
2. Several confrontations between Summerset and Eve.
3. Any number of appearances by Galahad with at least one involving bacon.
4. Mention of the candy thief.
5. Pizza
6. As many comic interchanges as possible between Eve/Peabody and Eve/Roarke
7. As many romantic interchanges as poss

It's hard to believe that we are already at book #48 in this series.

I know that many readers might feel intimidated by this number but please don't be. I know a couple fellow bloggers and readers that just started this series this year, and they are already hooked and are looking forward to reading a JD ROBB book each month. At this rate, one book a month, it doesn't feel too overwhelming and there is enough time for other books as well.

But if you love romantic suspense, love police procedural b

This series always delivers. Unlike so many other series that go on for years and years, this one hasn't devolved into a story that feels called-in. Yes, there are always certain things we can expect because we know the characters so well, but the mysteries are usually pretty good and if you like police procedural books, you will enjoy these. Plus, the main characters, Eve and Roarke, are probably one of the greatest book couples in book coupledom. Roarke is my favorite book boyfriend and that c ...more

The mystery isn't as strong as some of the others in this series but I don't particularly care. This is a comfort read for me and as long as Eve and Rourke keep evolving I will be along for the ride.

Dr. Rochelle Pickering receives the offer of a lifetime when Roarke asks her to head the team of psychologists that will serve in his new youth shelter. When she returns from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds her brother dead of an apparent overdose. Lyle was a recovering addict who was winning and nothing about the scene makes sense. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is requested to investigate and it doesn’t take long for her to determine this is no accident.

This case takes Eve and her t

Remember how I mentioned only reading these books due to nostalgia? I finally got myself into utter boredom with the current installment...

This time around, Eve & co. deal with the murder of Crack's girlfriend's brother. Yes, it's appropriately tragic, how the boy gets offed by members of his old gang, just when he finally seems to be free of every one of his old vices. *insert faux sniffles* Throw in an equally tragic past, a squeaky clean older shrink sister... and you might as well start

The writing and everything else was good as usual, but the crime story was not as interesting as, for example, the Brotherhood in Death or Obsession in Death, just to mention a few good ones!

It was not bad, since she put away two gangs, but the story missed the intricacies. It was just too linear. We know since the beginning who the villains are and Eve have just to find evidence. And since the villains are, as Eve herself says, idiots, it is not such a difficult thing! Eve managed a much more c

Maybe after 48 books I should lower my expectations because quite frankly this one was lacking.

The plot lacked excitement and that edge of your seat feel that I have come to expect with this series.

The line up of our usual secondary characters was lacking too. Not personally but on page. Peabody was present but not overly. There were a few funny moments but I wanted more. We got very little of Feeney, Summerset and Mavis too. Even the lovely Dr. Mira was scarce in this one.

Of course this is just

I don’t know that I’ll ever find another series that feels as much like coming home as this series. Which is pretty amazing, considering all the murder.

I’ve made my love for Nora Roberts and her pen name abundantly clear over the course of my book reviews, but let me just reiterate that I absolutely adore everything she writes. There’s a flow to the prose that, while lovely, sucks me into the story in such a way that the words just disappear. T

JD hit this one out of the ball park! Great read, lots of action, some particularly nasty young punks, and extremely good police work. Guaranteed to quench one's thirst for the In Death series! I have seen some reviews that question who actually wrote this book - to me there is no question that J.D. Robb wrote it. As the characters grow/develop and change, so can an author's writing style. Nobody is forcing anyone to read the series, if you are unhappy with it, let it go.

2 thumbs up and 4.5 star

This is the 48th installment in the series but it doesn't get old. I LOVE LOVE Eve and Roarke. Yeah, I sound like a broken record but who cares? Roarke and Eve still leaves a silly grin on my face.

They were talking about papers being signed and with Eve not reading some of them.

I started reading this series because I was curious about how the author perceived the future. The book is set at a future date in New York City. I started with book 10 and was impressed so I went back and read all the books to date. Over the years I have kept up with the series. It is amazing the series is now at 48 books. This is the first book I felt did not hit Robb’s high standard. Something is a bit off in the story. Maybe it is the subject of gangs and drugs but Eve Dallas does not seem t ...more

You might think that after 48 books this series would start to get stale, but that is definitely NOT the case. I look forward to each new book with as much enthusiasm as I did at the beginning of the series. I have absolutely loved watching Eve’s transformation – which is why I am a firm believer that you really should read the series from the beginning – or at least read the first five or six books to get an idea of who Eve and Roa

There's not quite enough here of Lt. Eve Dallas's hunky husband Roarke for me to put this one - the 48th in the series - on my short list of favorites. Besides that, both Eve and Roarke seem a little lackluster - almost as if they'd rather be anywhere other than in this story - and the setting amid rival gangs isn't quite as attention-holding for me personally as are other scenarios. Otherwise, though, it's got all the goodies I've come to know and love. Eve bickers with Roarke's majordomo Somer ...more

In death never gets old. I still could not get enough of my Eve-and-Roarke dose.

The way Connection in Death was introduced definitely made me miss more our other beloved characters. Their interactions with each other kept my smile throughout the book. Although the plot was not as intricate as the previous installments, it was still a mind boggling and kept me guessing.

I'm counting my days for August so I can have Vendetta in Death.

Eve and Roarke are back and are all set to open a new youth center and school. They've just hired on a new head counselor who just so happens to be dating their friend Crack. Rochelle is at the top of her game and is happy to take on the job, but is soon devastated when her ex-con, ex-gang member, ex-drug addict brother is killed in the home he shares with her of an apparent drug overdone.

I cannot tell you how good it was to delve into another instalment in this series. It almost feels like coming home, in a weird murderous detective problem solving kind of way...

The best thing about this novel and this series as a whole are the characters. Although I have not started from book 1 yet I have read quite a lot later on in this series to know these characters well and fondly. You have, of course, the main character Eve Dallas and Rourke and all the people that Eve works with and alon

2.5*

While the mystery/suspense of each book is admirably different (idiot gangsters this time) the overall feel of the book unfortunately remains very similar to the 47 previous ones. Eve's interactions/relationship with the people around her seems stuck in mud, Peabody needs a new role and something else besides her ass and sex with McNab to talk about, Roarke is starting to seem like Eve's work partner like he gives so much to help her in her cases but their relationship goes nowhere, Feeny ne

Wow, another great addition to the In Death series. I just love reading about Eve solving these cases and her interviews with the killer (or killers in this case). Really entertaining read in this one. It definitely made me sad when the death happened but as always, Eve gets justice for the victim.

I felt like this one moved more quickly than previous books. However, it kept me interested throughout. Also, good Eve and Roarke scenes and at least one with Peabody and McNab grossing out Eve.

3 stars - Crime/Suspense/Mystery/Futuristic

This is one of my absolute, all-time favorite series, but this installment was a disappointment for me. The murder in this one involved a web of criminal gang activity, and I found it all confusing and honestly, just really boring. Also, there wasn’t nearly enough Eve/Roarke couple/romance page time, and I also felt it lacked the involvement of all the fabulous secondary characters that I’ve come to expect and love about this series. So this is definite

FIRST READ: I also am a huge fan of J. D. Robb, author of the In Death Series. Her latest installment is extremely good, and hold the reader tight and nicely engrossed. Probably doesn't appeal to all readers, but I'm one that it does.

Started out okay, and I enjoyed the first few chapters. Then the story kind of slid into the ‘sameness’ pattern. I was okay with that, I understand the series has a formula, and go with it. The plot, though, set in the gang world and a gang murder; I just didn’t get into that or enjoy reading about it. The gang members were stupid, and the investigation was obvious and routine from the get-go. If I wanted a humdrum, routine investigation, I’d read the police report. There was no excitement to th ...more

I do think this book is for ages 17 and up due to violence.
The In Death series has many books, but they all have very different crimes, very different criminals, usually the only thing we can count on is Roarke, Eve and her team of murder cops.
I very much liked this book just as much as all the others. That being said, Eve seemed softer in this book, not so harsh as usual for Eve. The other difference in this one was, there was no murder in the first couple of pages. I got through a chapter or
