I wish Robb could spend a bit more time making these more realistic. That Post-Urban War utility feel combined with the dignified to the point of boring. Then a link to millionaire Alex Ricker, son of a criminal she had put behind bars, heats things up even further. He dies suddenly and horribly - poisoned by the blood of Christ. Until a second murder—in front of an even larger crowd of worshippers—knocks the whole investigation sideways… This is my second read of this book although I did not review it the first time round. Next in the series, Promises in Death, sounds more promising and was released in hardcover February 24, 2009.
Do yourself a favour, buy book 1 and go from there. Every so often, I need to consume a good story that I can polish off in a few days. The question now is why and who could have done such a thing? With the In Death series, Robb has become one of the biggest thriller writers on earth, with each new novel reaching number one on bestseller charts the world over. Christobal's that makes her uneasy. Into the eyes of a friend. We get a lot of pickups, drop-offs for another couple hours.
I also love the community involvement in these books since it allows me to revisit some favorite side characters and embrace their special skills. Several of them were mentioned, but there was no new development to draw you in. Turns out that twenty-six-year-old Jerry is not only capable of brutality but has taking a liking to it. His daughter, most usually, spiked his stage water. Robb never lets me down.
The story is very well plotted. Skirting it, in several areas. I even hear the voices in my head when I read the regular books!!! And he was killed via the sacrament during a funeral mass. I gave it five stars on that read and this time I had to think about all those stars because I had a few small issues. Ditch the bodyguard, go out for a walk. And, Roarke, you are a lucky bastard to have Eve.
There is a patron saint for everything, Eve. Ugh anyway, long story short, I highly recommend this series to you. And soon Eve notices some interesting side-effects: visions of the deceased and even fluency in Russian. For the mourners packed into the pews, Father Miguel Flores's sudden demise is an unimaginable shock. The death by cyanide of another religious figure, Jimmy Jay Jenkins, founder of the Church of Eternal Light, complicates matters.
The story is set just far enough in the future to allow for imaginative technology in electronic devices and transportation. One angle leads to another. The question now is why and who could have done such a thing? As Father Flores smiles down on his congregation and drinks from the chalice of Christ's blood, he falls down dead. It's not all about rules! Anyway she had me stumped until the last few chapters. And I really hope she writes at least 100 books because seriously I'm addicted to this series. Eve: You married a cop.
I thought the storyline was rushed and not as well-rounded as past efforts in the series. In fact, the victim is one of the most intriguing in the In Death books so far, and although it could be argued that he received his just desserts, there is a small part of me that hoped he would be redeemed in some way. Private digs for the family, top-drawer security. A crowd gathers for a funeral at a downtown New York church. Drawing on the unfamiliar genre of the death liturgy, he arrives at a remarkably comprehensive view of the religion of death in ancient Egypt. I got something I want to check out anyway.

This is another series I have been with from the first book. How the narrator keeps all the different voices in line I don't know but it sure is an amazing job that she has done as there are so many side characters in this book a lot more that usual. Eve Dallas after Strangers in Death. I read them for the main characters and as long as they are full of their usual action I am totally happy. But no, nothing over the line.
A habitual thing, according to the youngest daughter. The storyline in this installment is rather convoluted with numerous characters and plot twists to keep track of. As usual Eve is being her badass and kickass self. There's just an overwhelming one-dimensionality to everything that made it hard to read this book. Robb still continue to write this series. Initially conceived as a trilogy, readers clamored for more of Eve and the mysterious Roarke. That said, the nature of the crimes and the revelations concerning the victim are very enjoyable.
