Indulgence in Death by JD Robb is the latest book in her popular In Death series. From the inside cover flap. ~
NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas must discover why the playthings of the rich and famous have become the prey.
When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe – not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City…
A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead – shot through the neck with a crossbow. The car was booked by an executive at a venerable security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a stunning, high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island, a bayonet stuck in her heart. And again, the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked.
With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life – and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in – and into the perverted heart of madness…
I absolutely loved Indulgence in Death. The In Death series remains one of my most favorite series ever. I think Robb writes some of the best characters and I still love Eve Dallas, Roarke and all the other characters 31 books later. I’ve learned to see things much like Eve does as I read this series and usually have the bad guy figured out before Eve spells it out. I will say I missed Nadine and Mavis, but realize I can’t see every character in each book. Overall, I thought it was a great mystery with some super-sexy scenes between Eve and Roarke. I did figure out the bad guy a little early, but still loved the story.
I’m looking forward to Treachery in Death, which is the next installment in this series, scheduled for release in February 2011.
