Overview

He is an expert with the latest technology . . . a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives.

Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past - a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The publishing world might be hard-pressed to find an author with a more diverse style or fertile imagination than Roberts, writing here as J.D. Robb. As in her five earlier Eve Dallas novels, the time is mid-21st century, and tough super-cop Lieutenant Dallas continues to control New York City's chaos with faulty, outdated equipment while bringing the scum of the Earth to justice. At the moment, the scum is a high-tech serial killer who specializes in death by torture and dismemberment. Eve quickly learns that the killer's target is none other than her beloved husband, Roarke, whose own violent past is linked to the killer. Though the evidence is inconclusive, all clues point to Roarke's faithful butler and Eve's relentlessly annoying nemesis, Summerset. This latest addition (after Ceremony in Death) is a perfect balance of suspense, futuristic police procedure and steamy romance. In short, it is truly fine entertainment. (Oct.)

The more I read this series the more I fall in love with Eve and her band of merry friends. J.D. Robb has created a heroine that you want to protect, comfort and cheer on in equal turns. Her friends are unique, her partner is hilarious and her marriage..rocky, passionate and wonderful. Great read.

I started reading her books when she was writing for Hariliquin romances. She is a wonderful suspence writer with all the twist and turns and romance all in the right places. I discovered her Death series by accident and I am now very much enjoying all her futuristic cop series. There is a little of Dallas in all of us.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to rate this one because for the first time Eve’s integrity wasn’t impeccable.  Roarke has affected her world so completely that she is choosing her husband over the law.  At the beginning of the series I didn’t think that would ever be possible.  But, all characters need to grow and develop and I like that Eve has developed this relationship with Roarke.  This series wouldn’t be what it is without it.  Eve was put through her paces this go round trying to catch a killer at the same time protecting Roarke.  It was a bit hypocritical yet justice isn’t always served the way it should be.  Vengeance is the first novel in the series that I did not know or guess who the bad guy was.  I had no clue and I loved that.  It is so much better when I don’t know.   So even though I didn’t like that Eve’s integrity was compromised I still loved every minute of the book.  Only 39 more to go….I think………Sara

I am reading this series in order at the suggestion of my daughter. I liked number one but thought number three was a little weaker but, over all, this is the best of the first six. The plot is more convoluted and enjoyable and the characters are getting more fleshed out. I am anxious to start on the next book in the series

I have loved Nora Roberts' books for a long time and have everything she has written. However, it did take me a while to start reading her J.D. Robb books, but once I started them, I've been reading through them in order to get caught up.

Riddle me this.... Starting the day off for Dallas is hard. Especially when the killer is a techno genius and a madman. Each riddle tells her where the next body will be but can she make it time? And will she be able to get in time to save her husband Roarke from the past.  Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. Sometimes you have to go all the way to Ireland for a little push! When Roarke faces his past, Dallas is with him every step of the way trying not to step on her own toes!
