Editorial Reviews

In 1995, J. D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) changed the face of mystery fiction with Naked in Death and Glory in Death, the first two installments of a resilient suspense series starring Lieutenant Eve Dallas. This omnibus, 540-page paperback volume collects those two futuristic classics, making for an ideal J. D. Robb sampler.

Based on the futuristic Manhattan where gone to the future is their lives but with thrill from crimes that our heroine Dallas based on the city she was found and with development of a passion for justice and love in the mix can be something new for her. Leaves you waiting for more and the series is already in # 30 I think (kindred in death the last one in 2010 paperback) The 2 first stories are well develop and hopeing for more .

I love the J. D. Robb/Nora Roberts In Death Series. This is very addictive series that is difficult to put down. I highly recommend it if you like a bit of intrigue, mystery, romance, adventure and futuristic stories. I constantly find myself wanting to stop whatever I'm doing and pick up where I stopped in the book.

I bought the first two books of this series when they came out in 1995 and loved the books. Since then I have read all of the books in the series-- at least twice. I guess you could say I am a fan, and this time I bought the first two books (appearing now under one cover)for my daughter. The plots are multilayer and multifaceted, always fitting the title, even if the word death is in each of the some 25 or more books in the series. The books are very personal and deeply felt. The main character Eve Dallas is a study of contradictions: tough, tender; brave,shy; compassionate, insensitive; complicated, straightforward. She is loyal and dedicated and perhaps, a personal hero. Experiencing her struggles makes me want to be a better person. The secondary characters, introduced in the on-going series are a joy. And then there is Roarke, the man who becomes the love of the life of the tough, fragile Eve Dallas. With his every touch and gesture of love, Roarke seems to tame and/or fill the emptiness of the young Eve, and by healing her, he saves himself. Some scenes are very intimate and sexual, but they fit, a part of Eve's learning to trust, to give, to accept intimacy and love and ultimately redemption. Finally, the in death books make me laugh and usually very loudly. I sometimes reread a page just for the sarcasm, wit and repartee of the characters, especially the the interaction between Roarke and Eve and Eve and her soon to be partner Peabody. I recommend the first two books and all of the books in the series, ending with Robb's latest book Promises in Death, a book which is extraordinary and makes me eager for the next book.
