Hum... Il y a tellement d'abonnés qui s'arrachent la série Ève Dallas à la bibliothèque que j'ai cédé à la curiosité. Mais je ne compte vraiment pas poursuivre la série. Deux tomes, j'en ai eu plus qu'assez ;-) Ce n'est pas que l'idée n'est pas bonne : roman policier qui se passe dans le futur (2058 me semble). Mais lorsqu'il a été écrit en 1995, les disquettes étaient à la mode, ce qui n'est plus le cas en 2017. Donc certains éléments qui ne vieillissent pas bien. Et il y a une histoire d'amour ...more

Arrivée à la moitié de Au commencement du crime j'ai eu l'occasion de comparer avec la version VO et j'ai constaté qu'il y avait eu des coupes à la traduction (notamment des scènes entre Eve et Connors/Roarke qui ont été raccourcies) et ça m'a coupé toute envie de le continuer.

Je vais redonner une chance à ce livre, mais en anglais. Au moins si je n'aime pas ou si je n'accroche pas plus que ça avec ce couple, ce ne sera pas dû à la traduction...

As duas histórias são muito boas, gostei que na segunda história não ficou com o foco de Roarke ser suspeito de novo. Algumas descrição nas cenas de ação são um pouco confusas, mas nada muito ruim e as pistas para os leitores não são boas. Uma coisa ruim desse livro é a diagramação. MEU DEUS TEM MUITO ERRO NESTA EDIÇÃO! Tem diálogos que não é dialogo. Tem erros de digitação. Parágrafos quebrados... Edição vira-vira bem ruim.

When I requested the book at the local library, I expected to read some new stories preceding the start of the 'In Death' series. As it turned out, this book covered the first two cases of said series rather than a new story which made me feel rather deceived and robbed of my expectations.
Nonetheless, I did thoroughly enjoy reading the early tales of Dallas, Lieutenant Eve, and Roarke again, and shall probably never tire of devouring their adventures - on how they met and the early days of their

Après une longue pause de Nora Roberts ( overdose sûrement), et malgré le nombre important de tomes de cette série, j'ai démarré les aventures d'Eve Dallas sans grande excitation et ce fut une très bonne surprise au final! Ayant acheté l'édition double, tome 1 et 2, j'ai pu apprécier doublement l'histoire. Outre les intrigues policières que l'on trouve dans certains thrillers, j'ai vraiment été séduite par l'histoire de Eve elle même, son passé mystérieux, sa rencontre avec Connors, un homme enc ...more

Geralmente tenho preconceitos contra escritores que são bestsellers. Mas como estou de férias, resolvi dar uma chance a [Author: Nora Roberts], sob o pseudônimo de [Author: J.D. Robb], que em vez de histórias de amor, água com açúcar, escreve romances policiais. Confesso que tenho me surpreendido. Embora não tenha pretenções de uma grande obra literária, tem uma trama bem construída e mantém o interesse do leitor.
Particularmente esses dois livros são a apresentação e a sequência das aventuras d

This is my kind of crack.

The first book was a little weird; the romance didn't seem to fit in with the mystery, and it all happened a little too fast for me, but I really enjoyed the second book. You know, once all the meeting and first time sex was over and done with.

Very satisfying in a guilty pleasure sort of way.

very good. The love story of the main character makes it quite juicy. I do like to read books that continue with some of the main characters. can't decide if I should try to read more of her books in order or not.

I highly recommend this title to any reader who has been captivated by
J.D. Robb’s characters; Eve and Rourke. Whether you are a brand new
fan or faithful follower, “In Death” takes the reader back to the first 2 cases of
Eve Dallas and how it all began.

I love this series! Actually gave this series a chance when I was searching for an interim title while waiting for the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel. I'm so glad that Ms. Roberts publishes on a frequent basis.
