Overview

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Lieutenant Eve Dallas must hunt down the deadly snipers terrorizing Manhattan in this fast-paced In Death thriller from J. D. Robb.

 
The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice-skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD but never one like this. A review of the security videos reveals that the victims were killed with a tactical laser rifle fired by a sniper, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the list of locations where the shooter could have set up seems endless, the number of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

Another good one. This book had a better ending than the last book-- more comprehensive. We got to hear the perps get their due, and we got to see some off-duty events, too. I'd like to see a story where Baxter is a little more central to the main plot. Maybe get him a girlfriend, too. Morris needs some happiness, too.

Overall another good JDRobb, but I don't think Evers character is developing any longer. I have read them all and throughout the series Eve grew as a person. From such a horrible beginning Eve had to struggle in her dealing with people, especially those she became close to, Mavis, Peabody, Mira and especially Roarke. The problem is that less & less of these interactions have been happening in the last books. This is what made me stick with this series! I live hearing Peabody & McNab and their silliness, about the Midas and all the rest of the gang that make these books not just a series of grisly murders. While there is a tiny bit in this book, I don't feel Eve's connection to them nearly as strongly as in some of the previous books. Please develope this character! She is a hard shelled, soft center cop, let more of her softness & the other characters through, please.

I totally love J D Robbs In Death Series. However, i do agree with another reviewer; this book does not have the same family feel between the characters as the previous books did. That's what kept me a captive audience and had a sista digging deep to pay $14.99 for this book. I miss reading about the interaction between Peabody , Nadine, Mavis, Finney, Dickhead, Morris, McNab Summerset, Roark ans Roarks' family. If having a kid is not in her future; at least keep the family dynamics within the book. Please. That along intertwined with muder is what makes your books a joy to read, and a sista paying $14 bones for it.

It's amazing that this author can write over 40 books with the same characters and each boom be better than the one before it. This is truly THE best series I have ever read.

This series is outstanding. Nature vs nuture-theories of why we become what we are. Cold blooded apprentice sniper. The main characters are fantastic along with the story!

I always look forward to new In Death books . This book was longer than I expected with some characters that I didn't remember from previous books Eve's character seems slightly softer than in previous books but she still kicks butt! Not as much sex, either. All in all a wonderful read. I'm looking forward to the next novel in February. I rarely buy books but I couldn't wait for my library to stock this one.

. . . But still not completely genuine Robb. If you compare with earlier works up to the one that included Rourke's last Christmas party, the differences in style are apparent.

Eve rides again with all of her crew. Nicely plotted and tightly paced addition to the series, with the added bonus of Bella's first birthday party looming over the murder and mayhem.

The whole cast shows up in this novel set in New York in 2016. I don't know how Nora Roberts manages to produce so many and keep the quality up, but this book's plot is engaging and the police work credible. Read the 42 others before you read this, you'll get the most pleasure from it.

In Death has been one of my favorite reads. Certainly best prolonged series ever. But maybe it's time for it to end. Connections to characters outside of Eve, Roarke and Peabody are slipping away. This series was made by Its magnificent characterizations, and there is little of it left. Even Summerset takes a leave. Galahad is now just a fat cat. Where is Nixie or Jamie, are they ever coming back? Where is real interaction among Feeney, Mavis & Leonardo, Witney, Nadine, Caro, Charles & Louise, Tibble, Morris, Harvo, DeWinter... or even Dickhead Berenski or Trina, etc, etc. Roarke's Irish relatives. Why aren't Peabody and McNab married yet? How about some Baxter & Trueheart action? Why can't Eve be a captain and still go out on cases, Feeney does. And "Hello!" why the hell can't Eve have a baby? The potential for real character development would be amazing! There are lots of slash/maim/rape/torture books out there, in this series there is still the potential for so much more.
