Publisher’s Description: It is 2058, New York City. In a world where technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there’s only one place to hide a crime of passion-in the heart.
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 the rain. The second is murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects — including her own lover, Roarke.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
I’m still on my journey of re-reading or in my case, re-listening, to the In Death series by J. D. Robb. Normally, my first choice is an Indie author, but J.D. Robb hooked me from the first mention of Roarke.
If you are familiar with Eve and Roarke, you know what I am talking about. If you are not, please, for your own swoon worthy imagination, please partake. Roarke charishes Eve like no other man I have every read about (and I am positive that no man living does). This relationship is not perfect, but it’s one that makes me sigh.
Anyway, this story is incredible. Again, these stories may be written in 1995, but they are still strong front runners even in comparison of books written now. I feel that after I finished reading the story, I would have thought the plot was fairly simple. While I was reading it, however, the plot was fed to me just as it would have been fed to Eve Dallas making it the puzzle. The best part is that while reading the story, readers are treated to the inside day to day feelings and headaches Eve Dallas. The reader is drawn in and becomes part of her family.
There is sex, swearing, murder, anxiety, flashbacks and adult situations involving the motivations of the murder. These books are well written and will pull a reader in so far that it will be difficult to pause the book or put the book down.
One last warning: try really hard to remember prior stories because they will come back as references in current stories. For instance, the folks in this story will be referenced in book #6. They aren’t integral in the story, but they are referenced and that is kind of cool.
