Customer Reviews

Can't put the book down once you read the first chapter.
J. Blankenship
I not only obviously love Roarke, but I love Eve and all the secondary characters that make up this great story as well.
Larissa
I believe that each one of the books is better than the last as you get to know Eve and the other characters.

Conspiracy in Death. Another Winner! Eve Dallas has to solve a series of murders. The murders are perpetrated on the homeless and prostitutes. In each murder the bodies are found missing vital internal organs. Eve's career, and her entire self is placed in jeopardy. An irrational, bitter cop (Bowers) really hates Eve and messes up the case. This book goes further into Eve's past and you even see a soft side to her you hadn't seen before in the series. I really enjoy this series and it is truly amazing how J.D. Robb keeps these books getting better. Each one beats the last and they start out 'Naked in Death "with a winner!

In this latest installment of the saga of Lt. Eve Dallas, a homicide detective, is confronted by a series of baffling murders -- someone is killing the "dregs of society," the homeless, prostitutes: people who the killer or killers think won't be missed. In each case, the bodies are found missing vital internal organs. The case is further complicated by a cop named Bowers who has an intense and irrational hatred for her. This book continues to reveal pieces of Eve's past. I hope that in subsequent installments we'll find out about her family. One immensely satisfying part of the story is Eve's relationship with her husband, the gorgeous, enigmatic, and passionate billionaire she first suspected of murder. I love the role reversal in their marriage, and how their love not only smooths down her rougher edges, but transforms him. I'm was grateful to see the redesigned cover. It's less exploitive and more interesting. However, the author and her readers are not well-served by sloppy proofreading. This is an ongoing problem which I hope the publisher will take steps to correct. New readers: please read the books in order from beginning to the current ones. You will be DELIGHTED!!

Just like the other seven, I hated to put the book down. J.D. Robb writes a story that grabs you at the beginning and you can't let go. I came across a review of Rapture in Death and Naked in Death on Amazon and decided to buy the whole series this summer. While reading one story, it was nice to know that I had more to read, but now I am at the end and I am going through withdrawal. Can't wait for my copy of Loyalty in Death to arrive. I love the characters of Eve Dallas and Rourke and the subcharacters (especially Peabody and Mavis). You get so involved with them - like you know them. Great work Ms. Robb (Roberts), I hope you have a lot more of these stories planned.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's a New Year, 2059 in New York City, and it starts of with murder. Eve is called to the homicide of a homeless man, and finds his heart cut out with extremely precise surgical precision. Upon securing the scene she has a run in with a street officer, Bowers. As Bowers stirs up a firestorm of trouble for Eve, vagrants and prostitutes keep winding up dead, and missing organs. It's Eve's toughest battle yet. She is up against a serial killer, her job is on the line, and so is her life.
This has been the BEST book of the "In Death" series so far. Eve equates her badge with her life, and when her badge is in jeopardy, she feels everything is taken away from her. In this book, we are allowed deep inside Eve's mind and heart. The people she has come to care for step up and show how much they truly love her. Eve's struggle is heart breaking. Roarke's struggle as he watches his wife fight for everything she believes in is equally as wrenching. I was in tears for most of this book.
CONSPIRACY IN DEATH is a fabulous book. Out of 5 stars, I would give it 10! I dare you to read this one without a box of tissues nearby.

The fantastic "...in Death" series continues in this latest book Conspiracy in Death. Eve Dallas has to solve a series of murders. The murders are perpetrated on the homeless and prostitutes. In each murder the bodies are found missing vital internal organs. A cop named Bowers, who has an intense and irrational hatred for Eve, further complicates the case.
The book also reveals more of Eve's past. The steamy relationship between Eve and millionaire Roarke continues to dazzle the reader with Roarke's unending passion and love for Eve. Eve seems not able to understand why this man is so in love with her, which only adds to the readers enjoyment.
If you haven't read the other books in the series do. Start with the first one, Naked and Death, and read them all, they're all great.

J.D. Robb's "Conspiracy in Death" is brilliant. The writing is first rate, and the story is skilfully rendered and emotionally charged. This book absorbed me completely, right from the start, and I cried and laughed along with the characters.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the hard-boiled and emotionally troubled heroine, will win readers' hearts with her determination and compassion. Her husband Roarke, the dashing billionaire, is every woman's dream come true. The relationship between husband and wife has developed and grown throughout the series, and it has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me to get to know them. Eve and Roarke have an unlimited passion and tenderness for each other that will warm readers' hearts.
In this eighth instalment, a killer is hunting New York's most helpless in the cold January of 2059, as a sidewalk sleeper is found dead with a perfect fist-sized hole where his heart once was. Lieutenant Dallas is determined to stand for the dead, no matter who they were, and she knows that she's looking for a killer with a cold and calculating mind and sophisticated medical training. However, a bitter and unbalanced fellow officer with a grudge is getting in Eve's way, and is starting to cause serious trouble for her. As Eve pursues her investigation, she suddenly finds her job on the line. Now Eve is caught between a fight for her career and a fight to catch a killer and bring him to justice!
This novel mixes elements of mystery, romance, science-fiction, and police procedure (among others) seamlessly. Robb has created a compelling and action-packed tale that will keep you turning pages well into the night. The characters' triumphs and losses are palpable and the mystery is well thought out and exciting. I most definitely recommend this book, so buy it today!
