Kindred in Death

Kindred in Death by J.D. Robb is the latest book in her popular In Death series. From the inside cover flap.~

In 2060, Lieutenant Eve Dallas searches the nooks of New York City for a dastardly and despicable criminal, in the newest novel by #1 New York Times-bestselling author J.D. Robb.

When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they are looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter, who stayed behind.

Not even their worst nightmares could prepare them for the crime scene that awaits them instead. Deena has been brutally murdered in her bedroom, and her body shows signs of trauma that horrify even the toughest of cops, including our own Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who is specifically requested by the captain to investigate.

When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do they know that someone has gone to great lengths to tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities.

Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to serve justice.

The only thing I don’t love about the In Death series is we only get two books a year. I’ve loved Nora Roberts ‘s books for years, and love her In Death books written as J.D. Robb best of all. The readers are given another winner in the series with Kindred in Death. Eve Dallas must work on one of the hardest cases in her career. Not only is she responsible for solving the violent murder of a fellow officer’s child, she must block out her personal history to stay focused on her job. As always, Eve had Roarke as her backup for all things work related and personal. With the help of Peabody, McNabb, Feeney, and Dr. Mira, and even Nadine when needed, Eve sets out to find who would want to brutally rape and murder an innocent young girl. When another murder occurs, Eve and her team must work over-time to figure out how they are connected and who is behind the murders. If multiple murders aren’t enough to deal with, Eve is the matron of honor for Louise for her wedding to Charles, which is set to take place at Eve and Roarke’s home. Eve has never felt comfortable with all the girly-stuff, and really doesn’t want to take time to deal with it in the middle of a murder investigation.

I got to see and spend time with all of my favorite characters from the In Death series with Kindred in Death. Normally fans of the In Death series have to wait six months for another fix. Luckily “Missing in Death” is set for a December 1, 2009 release in The Lost anthology. Looking forward to my next fix for the In Death series early(almost like an early Christmas gift).

***Disclaimer***I bought this book myself.

Thanks for putting up my sprout! And also, gasp! Julie James, too! Wild horses couldn't keep me away from that one.

In Death is totally a series I need to get going on. I read the first, and really enjoyed it.
