Nora Roberts writing as JD Robb has a winning series here. Eve Dallas is the Homicide detective of the future and Roarke is her exciting sexy spouse. The mysteries keep you guessing to the end and romance is steamy while still sweet. The characters keep things interesting. I enjoy the images Ms Roberts gives us of her idea of the future. The imagery is clear, makes me, as the reader believe its really there while I'm reading the story. Even with all the extras, the murder mystery remains the main focus. She always throws in exciting twists that really keeps you on your toes. Sometimes Eve "just knows" who the killer is, but doesn't know how to prove it, and sometimes she struggles with the outcome until the very end. Either way, If you like mysteries, this series is going to keep your attention. The books can be read in order but don't need to be to be understood. Each book, while it may refer to things that happen in previous books, will stand alone.

Judgment in Death is yet another great book for the 'in Death' Series. Eve Dallas is investigating the death of an undercover cop, Taj Kohli, in her tycoon husband Roarke's classy strip club. But the case is nowhere near simple to solve. There are dirty cops and departmental coverups that Eve must sort through to find the killer. And it doesn't help that she's earns enemies along the way: the dead cop's comander, Captain Roth, and the head of Internal Affairs, Captain Bayliss. One of her leads leads her to Ricker, an old associate of Roarke's who has been waiting years to get revenge on Roarke for taking away some of his business years ago. He'd love it if he could take Eve down as well. Also returning to the series are Peabody, McNab, Feeney, Dr. Mira, Mavis, and Webster (of the IAB). If you liked the other books in the 'in Death' Series you'll love this one.

I had my suspicions who the killer was, however, it didn’t come until further along in the story.  I honestly thought it was someone else.  Robb is getting better with each book in this series, not broadcasting who the killer is at the onset of the story.   The real story was what was going one with Eve and Roarke.   For the first time, they were really butting heads and not seeing eye to eye.  Their relationship took on new depths with this battle of wills.  It was an interesting change of pace to have them not getting along.  Refreshing and interesting.   Once again Susan Ericksen is brilliant and it astounds me how she keeps each character the same from book to book.  I love her, and I can’t wait for more.

I have loved this series since the first one. The stories are always fresh and interesting filled with plenty of twists and turns. The relationship between Dallas and Rourke, Peabody and McNab and Mavis and Leonardo are vibrant, ever evolving characters that make you want to learn more about them.

Great story telling - not only the plot and the action but also the detailed and fascinating character development woven through the tale. For the copy editor: There's a big problem with the name Morse. Initially Morse was the villain in GLORY IN DEATH (Book 2 of the series. Roarke killed him. Then in Book 3, IMMORTAL IN DEATH, a passing reference resurrects him and mentions his standing trial. At the same time, the names Morris and Morse are used interchangeably in the first ten volumes of the series. It's sloppy, and it's confusing and annoying to readers. Especially avid fans of the series who are unlikely to overlook the mistake. Future revisions should correct these flaws.

This is one of the "In Death" installments that I reread periodically . Eve and Roark are new-year and finding their balance as a couple. A satisfying book villain and a parallel corruption investigation round out the book . One of J. D. Robb's best!

Frankly, I am amazed that each of the "in Death" novels that I have read gets better than the previous one. Ms. Roberts is exceptional at writing dialog and completely tells her stories without third person input. I liked this particular book because, while it starts with bold physical content, the balance of the book is intensely psychological. The romance factor helps keep the reader amused and allows the suspense to build without becoming tedious.

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I have to say that J.D. Robb never fails to hold my attention. She sets a pathway for readers to follow and sometimes, she likes to take you on a little detour. The intensity picks and up emotions run rampant, making for a read that got my heart pumping and my palms sweaty. ~ Under the Covers In JUDGMENT IN DEATH, Eve Dallas finds herself in the midst of upscale strip club called Purgatory where a cop has been bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat. Naturally, that club is owned by Roarke, Eve's husband. However, when another murdered cop turns up, Eve knows that something far more dangerous is going on. It seems that the murders of these "dirty cops" are connected to Max Ricker, a former associate of Roarke and a criminal mastermind. As things become hairy, readers get a glimpse of the more possessive side of Roarke! I have to say that J.D. Robb never fails to hold my attention. She sets a pathway for readers to follow and sometimes, she likes to take you on a little detour. The intensity picks and up emotions run rampant, making for a read that got my heart pumping and my palms sweaty. It seems that Robb herself is a mastermind at playing with human emotions. Roarke displays a fiercer side of himself and boy, was I along for the ride! I just adore it when Roarke steps up! And, I have to puff up my chest a bit when I say this because for the first time I can remember, I figured out the killer before it was revealed. Yes, yes I shall pat myself on the back for it and give myself an A. But in all seriousness, I take it as a personal challenge whenever I read an In Death book. Robb's books always make me think and I love how engaging each book feels whenever I immerse myself in this world. It never fails to entertain me. No In Death review of mine is complete without Roarke...

Liked, but didn't love... Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi Beware of spoilers! It’s spring 2059 and Eve Dallas is called to a case where a fellow police officer was murdered. He was bludgeoned to death with a metal baseball bat inside a club that is owned by Eve’s husband, Roarke, nonetheless. Then, a second police officer is murdered and Eve finds a link; they’re both dirty cops. But as Eve digs deeper she discovers that the first cop was only made to look dirty and was part of a secret operation in internal affairs. The murders are all connected to a powerful former associate of Roarke’s (from before he became ‘legitimate’), Max Ricker, who is a career criminal that always slips away without getting caught. Now Roarke and Eve butt heads as she wants to take Ricker down and Roarke knows how dangerous he is and wants her far away from him. Although I love him, in the first half of this book, Roarke was annoying the crap out of me with his possessive controlling ways when it came to Eve. He wouldn’t talk to her because she wasn’t completely honest about how she handled Ricker at the beginning of her investigation, but she did fess up the same night. I felt Roarke was acting like a child and he needed to grow up. I also hated the whole “I’ll take what’s mine” scene in the book where he practically forces himself on her, but it’s OK because he knew that Eve wanted it or whatever. I just didn’t like it especially considering her past…but once that is over they go back to themselves thank God! And then I can like Roarke again. This was another case of a cop gone bad after suffering the tragic loss of his son and having a bit skewed way of righting things in his son’s honor. But the killer took a backseat to Ricker, even as more bodies started piling up, and the main focus seemed to be to nail him at all costs. I really missed Peabody, McNab, and Feeney in this one. Don’t get me wrong, they were present, but the story didn’t go into much detail with any of them. But on the upside, we did get to know Webster a little better and I enjoyed it. Bottom line–I thought this book was OK, but nothing earth shattering.
