Lieutenant Eve Dallas thought she'd seen it all, but nothing could prepare her for the crime scene she steps into. The victims were all killed by each other and what few survivors there are all report massive delusions. It seems that everyone in the bar was exposed to a lethal cocktail of drugs designed to drive them to homicidal insanity. Eve and her team must discover who the killer is and fast, because the virus is airborne, and no one in New York is safe.
Eve, Roarke, their colleagues and loved ones face what is perhaps their most frightening case to date in DELUSION IN DEATH. Author J.D. Robb ups the tension in this engaging futuristic suspense by creating a terrorist threat that's terrifying in its plausibility. I was practically on the edge of my seat as I read DELUSION IN DEATH, putting the pieces of the case together alongside Eve. I fear I cannot say too much about the case without spoiling the story. Suffice it to say this isn't your average homicide, and the urgency with which Eve and her team work to catch the killer will have you reading late into the night.
In general, the IN DEATH books tend to fall into two categories; case-centric and character-centric. DELUSION IN DEATH is more of a case-centric story, but that doesn't mean Ms. Robb skimps on character growth. Eve - and by extension, Roarke - hasn't fully dealt with the aftermath of what happened in NEW YORK TO DALLAS.Read more ›
There are moments with great relationship growth, it actually surprised me because of the scope of the investigation. But they are moments - it is not the book.
Also good news, things are not be sent out for anal as much. Lol that drove me nuts.
The only criticism I might have for this book was that I felt it over used Eve mixing up her metaphors. It was cute at first however she did it more than normal and I rolled my eyes on a couple.
This one didn't have great Roarke moments, in fact it seems more like they have both settled into their marriage. Eve has grown a lot and does not make the immature mistakes with him she used to. There just wasn't that tension we frequently get with them, but after the Dallas book - I am not surprised.
I loved the book but I don't feel like I need to re read it right away. I can not my finger on it, it was a good book but not a favorite of this series. One of my favorites from this series is Treachery in Death To me it had it all - the case and the relationship, it is in my top 5, probably top 2. This one is really good but not a stand out.
If you are are new to the series start with Naked in Death (In Death, Book 1)h.Read more ›
The trend seemed to start with New York to Dallas. I could understand it in that book as she was in a different city. However, I noticed it in the book after that as well and it was very noticeable in this book. None of the little scenes that offered Eve the chance for one of the rants I've always enjoyed so much about this series.
Some of my disappointment is certainly because I've always had such high expectations of this series. It's certainly a good police procedural but for a character-driven reader it just doesn't have the vivid individuality I expect from this series.
The plot premise starts off interesting with an unknown chemical causing the deaths of all the occupants of a bar. But what starts off interesting quickly degenerates.
My biggest pet peeve is that there are large chunks of the story dedicated to dream sequences as Eve struggles - again - to come to grips with her past. And then there is another chapter dedicated to her discussing her past with Mira. Come on...this has been gone over again and again in this series, and quite frankly, it's getting redundant. It is especially annoying that it takes up such huge chunks of the current story. It looks like what it is: filler, plain and simple.
I also think the sex scenes between Eve and Roarke are becoming stale and rote. How many times can they make love in the shower and then lie spent on the shower floor, mentioning they are too worn out to move? I swear the scenes in this book were almost word for word from the scenes of previous In Death books! I remember a previous In Death book where Eve and Roarke are spying on that actress and her lover, and Roarke remarks, "They aren't very imaginative, are they?" or something to that effect. Well, Eve and Roarke and far from imaginative in this book - actually, they've never been particularly imaginative. I could do with less sex and more of the crime/mystery/thriller in this series!
My other gripe is the way that the interviewers purposely play up on the "I'm a weak female" angle when questioning the suspect for these crimes.Read more ›
