Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lieutenant Eve Dallas may live in 2059, but she's still a recognizable Manhattan police officer: mouthy, courageous, skeptical and impatient. In Roberts's latest In Death novel (after Purity in Death), she's charged with finding a killer who murders young people full of innocence and promise, photographs them after death, then taunts both a top reporter and Dallas herself with notes about his handiwork. Just as her investigation of Manhattan's clubs and colleges nears its peak, Eve's husband, the wealthy entrepreneur Roarke, discovers that his mother is not the cold abandoner he remembers, but a tender young Irishwoman whom his father brutally murdered. While he struggles to understand his heritage, the couple must navigate stormy marital waters. Though the mystery's denouement doesn't live up to its promise, the book ably delivers on other fronts. Intensely female yet unfeminine in any traditional sense, Dallas has a complex edge that transcends genre stereotypes and gives the book's romantic interludes a real charge. As always in Roberts's work, appealing secondary characters add genuine warmth and humor. And while this futuristic vision of New York may not be totally accurate (it's unlikely, for example, that Dallas's oft-used "bite me" will still be in vogue 50 years from now), it's perfectly calibrated to intrigue.

Review

Portrait In Death will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. You will go from wanting to laugh to wanting to reach for the box of tissues.” —Barb Hicks, ParaNormal Romance Reviews
 
“When you want a book that will excite, thrill and transport you, pick up something by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). The futuristic Eve Dallas and Rourke suspense stories are without peer!” —Jill M. Smith, Romantic Times
 
“Purity In Death is a tour-de-force, perfectly displaying Ms. Robb's considerable writing skill, while at the same time illustrating exactly why this series continues to be an auto-buy for her fans… Purity In Death is a winner.” —Mellanie Crowther, The Romance Readers Connection
 
“Thank you J.D. for another surprise, more laughs, and another look into the, hopefully, never ending life that Dallas and Roarke.” —Michele Patrykus, The Best Reviews

From AudioFile

Susan Ericksen depicts Lieutenant Eve Dallas with stern, businesslike tones as Eve tracks a serial killer who murders women, poses and photographs them, and then send the pictures to the newspapers. Lieutenant Dallas is portrayed as sassy and skeptical except in the arms of her new husband, Roark, where she becomes intensely female. Ericksen handles multiple accents--East Coast, Hungarian, and Scottish--with accomplished ease as Lieutenant Dallas interrogates suspects. Her portrayal of Spence, the caustic nurse-companion to crusty Somerset, a secondary character, is superb. The story is sometimes difficult to follow, but Erickson's rendering of it is outstanding.
