I could not wait to get this book home and start reading it! The book begins with a trio of stoners robbing a small store and killing the owner. As the investigation starts, Lt. Eve Dallas throws the reins to Det. Peabody and Peabody gets her first case as primary. One of the best part of this series is how the history of the characters plays throughout the books. Seeing Peabody step up to the plate almost makes you feel proud because we have seen her grow through the previous books. When she finds herself in a deadly situation after going to an old police gym to workout, we are holding our breath along with her. She overhears a conversation that implicates two cops in a murder and corruption scheme and is lucky to escape undetected.




Peabody goes to Eve and tells her what she heard and the investigation begins. Eve is a cop to the bone and takes this situation as a betrayal of all she stands for. The fact that one of the cops involved is also a female lieutenant, whose father was a revered Commander in the department, makes it all the worse. Eve draws her troops around her and goes to work making her case. All of the characters we have come to know- Commander Whitney, profiler Mira, Eve's husband Roarke, McNab, Truehart, Baxter, Mavis, and even IAB Det. Webster have a part in the operation. There is plenty of action as well as a strenghthening of some of the core relationships that have been in place since the first book.




As always, when I got to the end of the book, I was antsy for the next one. This is a great series and if you haven't read it you need to start at the beginning and work your way through. The series takes place about 30 years in the future but has very little of a scence fiction feel to it. It is primarily a police procedural mystery and is very popular among my library readers. The audio version is excellent with the same reader(Susan Erickson)for all of the books.

Not Her Best

This book does not have the feel of other Dallas books. It makes me wonder if J. D. Robb actually wrote this book herself. I suspect not - the book brought in all of the characters, but none of them seemed right - they were all off

For example: The language - totally out of character for Eve and Peabody. Her reaction to Roarke - all other books mention his beauty and how his looks take her breath away - no mention in this book. The sex was lukewarm and the romance contrived. When Roarke loaned Peabody a car, she should have done her "happy dance" -this was out of character. Mira did not sound like Mira. Too much about what a "great cop" Dallas is - we didn't need it beaten into us. She should have been embarrassed as she has been in all other books. There was no sublety in her handling of Oberman - too much "in your face" - also not like her. I could go on and on, but no Pepsi's, not much coffee, and she would never turn down a candy bar. No battling with the vending machine and hardly a mention of her cat - all staples in the other Dallas books. I just really don't believe that Robb wrote this book and, if she did, she's lost her interest in the characters.

What do you think?
