Glory in Death
Even in the mid-twenty-first century, during a time when genetic testing usually weeds out any violent hereditary traits before they can take over, murder still happens. The first victim is found lying on a sidewalk in ...more
I'm sooo hooked on this series. I can't believe I kept postponing reading it. I would say that my review will come soon but it probably won't because I'd have to stop reading to write it.

1st read : 6th May, 2015
Even the re-reads are so great. I just love Eve & Roarke sooooo much.
I'm cheating my husband with ROARKE. Yeah yeah, I'm in too much trouble. :D God dammit Roarke. Why are you so cute? :)
“I love you, Eve.” She looked away from the sun, the ocean, and into his eyes. And it was wonderful, and for the moment, it was simple.
“I missed you.” She pressed her cheek to his and held him tightly. “I really missed you. I wore one of your ...more
5 stars – Romantic Suspense
Okay, I think I'm officially hooked on this series. After reading and loving Naked in Death, I immediately jumped right into reading this, and it's another great book in an addictive series.
I find the futuristic elements interesting, but I like that it's not too distracting to the story and characters. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is a complex character who I sort of feel a love/hate relationship towards ...more
I really like Roarke. I dislike Eve. There is nothing likable about her. I don't get what Roarke sees in her. Yes, she is humanized by her interactions with her BFF Mavis and a couple others, but I still find her annoying.
I don't think this series is for me.
I originally started JD Robb’s In Death series because it was recommended to me by well… everyone. And Yes it is good. In fact I ended up liking this 2nd instalment even more then the first, however (except for Roarke) I don't totally love it either. The writing is top notch and Robb spins an easy to read, dark mystery filled with lots of interesting suspects(including Roarke again.) But I’m just not a fan of the police procedurals and therefore large ...more
He could do that to her, and for her, she realized. He could open little pockets of peace.
The second book in the In-Death series didn't disappoint. If the first one blew me away with its originality and characters (Roarke, anyone?), this second was a solid sequel. The only reason I gave it one star less was because of the case itself, which I found less interesting, especially because of Roarke's low involvement in it. Or, more properly, at first his involvement mirrored a lot the ...more
I WANT TO MARRY YOU, ROARKE!!!!!
I'm going to use this review as an excuse to post more Gandy Candy.
Opening line: “The dead were her business.”
From that first line, I was sucked in. There is something about Robb’s writing that just sucks me in completely. I love the way she describes things. I love the way the words flow and I love that there’s this sense of detachment or coldness in the overall tone of her writing. It makes the mystery of the story that much more ...more
I dare say I loved this one a bit more than book one just because we see Roarke and Eve more established as a couple. I also loved the way Roarke handle those relationship bumps with Eve. He gives her place, treats her as an equal and respects her profession and still maintains his alpha male status.
The mystery part is always a plus and Eve is a fantastic detective always so through. I wasn’t really surprised by the killer but I enjoyed how it was played. Looking forward to the next ...more
Well written and great mystery.
I enjoyed this the second time around because I didn't remember certain things like the small things you tend to over look do to the fact that you are wondering who the killer is. There were some details about each person that you pick up in each of the books ...more
The dead were her business. She lived with them, worked with them, studied them. She dreamed of them. And because that didn’t seem to be enough, in some deep, secret chamber of her heart, she mourned for them.
Glory in Death takes place a few months after the previous book. Murder never stops and Lieutenant Eve Dallas finds herself once again in a high-profile case when a well-known woman is murdered. And when another successful and famous woman is murdered, Eve works quickly to find...more
And the LOVE continues! Glory in Death was fantastic. I even enjoyed it just a little bit more which was such a great feeling. It was a combination of things that made it a little better……..
The chemistry between Eve and Roark is explosive. I savored every single moment they were together. I love that he calls her darling.
The side characters Feeney, Mavis, Commander Whitney and Summerset continue to shine. Summerset is a bit of a mystery to me though. I’m looking forward his back story.
This is an amazing and addictive series.
Eve is rapidly becoming one of my all time favorite heroines. She has me enamored with her tough, take no prisoners attitude and I especially love all her snarky comments.
She is strong and determined, with a fierce dedication to her job as a police Lieutenant . She isn't afraid to put her life on the line in her job but she still struggles to find that same balance in her personal life with Roarke.
Roarke, however is much more confident in the ...more
Still can’t believe this book was written 22 years ago!
The author and her heroine have brilliant mind. Brilliant!
As to the romance - I still didn’t like Roarke. Their conflict, above all his behaviour, at the beginning was childish. And I found some of h’s actions regarding the H a bit weak.
But I don’t give up hope to like him better.
And if not, I’ll still enjoy the hell out of crime suspense!
Reread March 2018- These books are always on my reread list. In this book we have Eve trying to come to terms with the unbelievable rich and hot Roarke and his love for her. Every time I read their ...more
Another Great read!!!
This one was even better than the first one. I have to say, Great, Great work J. D. Robb!!! I Loved it.
The characters are great but the crime and the way it turns out at the end was really fascinating.
Eve was great, as usual. Tough and smart.
Roarke… well, Roarke was Roarke.
They are moving too fast, but let’s see.
“We're standing here, beat to shit, walking away from a crime scene where either or both
of us could have bought it, and you're asking me to marry you?"
Science Fiction for people who don't like Science Fiction!
Glory in Death is the second book in J.D. Robb’s wildly popular, futuristic, In Death series, and just like the first book, it’s an exciting, gritty, thrilling read.
The Story -
Two prominent women and a third ‘accidental’ have been found with their throats slashed, and as primary on the case, Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has her hands full. With the list of suspects rising along with the death count, Eve is mentally and emotionally ...more
For what I have read and been told, every book in this series solves a different crime while Eve's and Roarke's relationship develops. I must say that this too have become one of my ...more

I am officially addicted to this series. I am reading for the pleasure of it, reading in the breakroom at work, reading while working if I can get away with it...
Reading in the middle of the night...going without sleep reading.
Figured out who the culprit was a bit early but there were enough other red herrings to cause a doubt or two...
J.D. Robb, you are the WOMAN.
Couln't stay away...Had to hop to #2 Right Away
As a Newbie
To the J.D. Robb...
Love of Eve and ...more
Eve is direct, straight forward.
Cars with auto pilot - Yesss!!! Take that road rage
On Roarke - Fallen angel. Yes he is.
Eve finds it difficult to turn to Roarke, to open up to him. He's trying to understand but his patience wears thin.
Eve struggles with her emotions, expressing herself. Her detatchment gives her distance and a logical mind. It's sort of effortless, not moving through the murky waters of emotion
