I did read this book cover to cover without pauses, but I kept waiting for that moment in an Eve & Roarke book that I just did not get. This book is a basic murder plot, with lots of subtext (I hope) for the next book. I am going to try not to give spoilers, I might allude to something but will not give details. If you are new to series, start at the beginning, for diehards you will want to read this, but there is nothing other than your own impatience that makes it MUST read today :).

Eve and Roarke are my fav's as some of you know. I read them the second they come out and I almost always 4 or 5 stars. This book feel like the set up for the next one. You know how a lot of the books recently have referenced that Eve would have had a promotion already but some people think she is a glory hound and others think she is too brash blah blah? This feels like it is setting her up for major career advancement.

They start by talking about how good she is @ spotting talent and brining that in, you know how she brought up Peabody and Truehart and then she kind of mellows, the things that would drive her insane, she still gets snarky over, but she she lets things go and delegates some of it. They also have a part that will make her a hero in the eyes of all New Yorkers, and lots of positive media bits with out looking like she is seeking it out. We are no longer getting the accusations that she puts her life before her career, in fact the judges sister in law that gets murdered wants Eve on the case. So instead of roadblocks this book has things streamlined.

I see big things happening in the future, and it did need to be laid out, it just was not this book. The character interaction was so so, nothing I found to be great. Very mellow book.

This was probably the first book in the series I didn't enjoy. Not because it is a bad book. Because its the wrong book. It takes place in the same place, the characters have the same names and... well, that is it. The whole thing feels completely wrong, like a painting the hangs just a few degrees off center and you can't really fix it. If you don't notice it it doesn't really bother you, but once you see it you can't stop seeing it. The dialog between the characters feels wrong (the banter between Eve and Peabody is especially noticeable), the investigating methods used are different (when was the last time the Dallas went looking for fingerprints to solve the case? or when was the last time Roarke had to do actual financial analysis rather than coming up with the magical answer 5 minutes after being asked the question?), the characterization is way off (like someone had a list of typical things this or that character does but no real insight into why. Simple example - Dallas eats more soup in this book than in all previous books combined. Yeah, the writer mentions how much she loves pizza (ticking it off the list) but the rest of the time she is slurping soup and can't stop singing its praises. And the support cast, that all important set of characters that makes these books interesting - where was it? Compare the time given to Whitney, Mira, Nadine, Morris, Feeney, McNab etc. here and in previous books. Bet you in previous books each of those got more "screen time" on their own than all of them had here combined). Hell, even the crime is wrong. In the previous versions we had terrorists blowing up NYC, cloning humans, inventing drugs... here the big evil is...GASP.... real estate fraud. Shocking how that doesn't really make you shiver in anticipation to read all about it.Read more ›

Someone is getting too laid-back in writing, and I'm not sure it's J.D. Robb. This book, like several recent entries in the series, seems to be either on autopilot or ghost-written. If Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb turns out one romantic suspense, two In Death futuristic mysteries, and a short story each year all by herself, that doesn't allow much time for rewrites and editing, so maybe the problem is a natural result of churning out pages. Roberts/Robb is a major player in publishing, and I automatically buy each new release. But this one falls a bit flat. The good news is, the Mad Scientist/Psychopathic Serial Killer is missing, replaced by an ordinary mastermind and murderer. The bad news is, the characters are falling back rather than moving forward. Peabody is speaking too much like Eve, Eve is speaking too coarsely, the futuristic touches (part of the charm of the series) are disappearing, and current fads are out of place in the year 2060 (someone wearing an "I Heart NY" shirt 50 years from now? Roarke working on a tablet?). Nice to meet new characters (Turney) and see progress with old ones (Trueheart), but Eve and Roarke's relationship seems to have reached a plateau, so the fireworks are missing. For several books, there have been many references to the Icove case and I suspect that the whole Icove mess will reappear in an upcoming volume. That's fine, but bringing it up over and over in several books is rather annoying. Enough show...time for the tell. I will continue to buy the In Death books, in hardcover, but I sometimes think the series should be wound down to a reasonable end. "Calculated in Death" is one reason why.
