The 'In Death' series just gets better and better as the characters develop. I love that JD Robb/Nora Roberts put so much into developing each personality. Oringin n Death stands out for a great and bone-chilling crime, and is the best in the series.

Well worth reading a second or even a third time!
The whole series is a grand and satisfying futuristic tour through a very imaginative plot and character development exercise.
No two books are the same but keep adding details that make it hard to wait for the next book to come along.

I really am enjoying this series. I love all the secondary characters. The only thing that really bothers me about these books is Eve's Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Everything is always all about her and her case. When its not, she manipulates it back to being about her and what she has going on. I felt sorry for Roark in this one when he was so obviously worried and she copped her "too bad for you, now about my case" attitude. I wish her character would, at least once in a while, let the moment be about someone else, maybe Eve could drop by Mavis' place just to see how she is, rather than only contacting her when she wants something from her. Or, helping Roark out with his family's visit for a couple of hours, rather than dumping more of her stuff on him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Out if all of them so far, this is my least favorite. I got bored and sometimes confused because of all the characters. Not as much subplots with our favorite supporting characters this time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was a tough story for Eve. She had to discover the killer of some hotshot doctor, but at the same time Roarke decided to invite his family for Thanksgiving. I love Roarke and during this book was the first time for me to see him a little nervous, he was scared and way to obsessed with the holidays, but he still helped Eve during those most difficult moments.
I loved the story, super different and a total match with the timing of this book. Since this series take place in the near future and almost everything is man-made. I had a pretty clear idea of the person responsible and that Eve would be on her side. She always consider people who suffered like her the victim, and tries to help most of the time. I loved her little trouble with Mira, makes things between them more family like for me. And Roarke family was hilarious.

Where do we really come from? What really makes us who we are? Is it what our parents tell us
what to do? Is it the environment that makes us who we are? Or is it just DNA? Does our DNA
make us think? Make us do things that other people won't do?
What if you had the opportunity to become God, and clone yourself over and over again and
become the perfect human being there can ever be? What would you do?
Eve Dallas has a tough case. A very prominant doctor is dead. A doctor that is loved, liked,
cherished and has a very clean record. Very very clean. To others, there would be nothing wrong
on the doctor, he is no criminal. Not according to Dallas's gut. She senses something on this
doctor and when someone else dies her suppisions come true. But what will Dallas do in order to
get justice for the criminals and for the wicked?

these books are best for the open minded who enjoy a great mystery and
who can ignore or read the explicit sex themes amnd continue with the
I also like the thoughts of reading about the future 2059. will it
really be like what is described. the author must have studied about
it. I find it rather fascinating.
I do not belioeve it would be good for club discussions, unless mystery buffs might like the future and love somewhat bizarre murders.
I have the whole series and will continue as long as she can come up

I Also Recommend:
After reading and listening to several Eve Dallas novels, the characters are like old friends. The author writes with humor and compassion and tells a good story. If you enjoy a strong female lead character with strong supporting characters, you'll enjoy the In Death series in general and this title in particular. As usual, Eve's husband Roarke is right by her side as she solves this case, as is her partner, Peabody. I hope Robb keeps writing about this group of people.Was this review helpful?

This book is deadly. It will literally keep you up until you finish it or expire on the spot from the excitement. A 'good' man has been killed and Eve and Roarke find themselves in a pitched battle to find out who, what where when and most importantly, why. The ending is more that what you expect from the characters but nothing less than what you expect from Nora Roberts, the best! I can't say enough. She writes them 'edge of the seat' and she writes them peaceful but edgy. Just the way a marriage should be, just the way a book should be. Way to go Nora!Was this review helpful?

This book gives an interesting twist on who you are as a person and how you struggle to become a person with your own needs and desires. I like the idea of women who decide to do things for themselves, who free themselves from monsters. This theme runs through all the '...In Death' series starting with Eve and band of police staff and expert consultants, civilian. The fight of good against evil in this book is global and important and Eve and Roarke face it and fight it knowing that they can't stop everything but will stop what they can. The series is simply excellent. I have already gone to Nora Roberts website to see when the next one book in the series is coming out. I'm just a fan, a true fan of the extraordinary Nora Roberts.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have read the whole series, and they get better and better. Little disappointed Eve didn't mention to Roarke, about the first woman, who had a similar situation, to when she killed her father, and had a one night stand with him. I like how she's portrayed, as a cold cop, but Trina,kids and Mavis's stomach, scare her to death. Hope, the next one goes into her and Roarke, doing that coaching, for the baby's birth, for Mavis, since she is about due. Also, I don't really get why her and Roarke call each other by formal names, she calls him Roarke, which is his last name, he calls her Lieutenant or Dallas, and how no mention of any contraceptive being used, and they have no kids. Only thing I don't like, is how she treats Summerset, he's like family to Roarke, but she goes out of her way to make him mad.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
