RATING: 5 INTELLIGENT STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

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.



BOOK REVIEW:

Book two is done and dusted, and just quietly, so is book three.

Mystery, murder and suspense and a nice helping of Roarke and his Eve—is what keeps me coming back for more.

I do dare a reader to not fall head-over-heels for a man like Roarke.

What is very brilliant about his character, as I am discovering is: he knows Eve better than she knows herself at times, he’s lived on the tough side, he’s intelligent, he’s street-smart, he has high-tech shit to help Eve with her investigations, he has a grumpy butler, he’s generous with his emotions and he’s a very patient man.

Diamond necklace, anyone?

Eve Dallas is always on a case, but she finds time for the billionaire who weaves his way into her investigations, either as a suspect or having contacts.

Prominent women are being murdered. Eve is on the case and with Feeney occasionally along for the ride. 

The villain had me flip flopping as to who it was. I thought I had the bad guy and then I was off the trail, but then on it again, but then off it again. I do like a book in this genre that makes the reader work hard theorizing.

Well, I like to theorize.


We get more of other sub characters. Summerset is always a joy to read. Who needs a mother in law when they can have Summerset giving them the stink eye? The man does not like Eve…but keep reading the series, they learn more about each other.

Mavis, Eve’s BF, the nightclub singer, shows up more and she’s really growing on me. Eve needs somebody like Mavis in her life, even if she is kinda the total opposite of her. In Eve’s case—can only be a good thing. Eve can be a little too serious sometimes.

Peabody makes her entrance.


Another really good book in the In Death series. Only 42 more to go, because #46 isn’t released yet, and I’m about to start # 4.

Addicted. Much.
