Lieutenant Eve Dallas is furious when she learns what Peabody overheard because she hates nothing more than cops who misuse their power to steal and kill. Together with the cops she trusts and her husband Roarke Eve will do everything in her power to end the reign of the dirty cops.
"Treachery in Death" is a classic how to get the bad guys story and I enjoyed that it was not as emotional as some of the other books in the In Death series. I liked that the book concentrated on Eve and her team's investigation. I loved seeing them work together and especially how Eve handled the dirty cops was awesome.
Furthermore I liked that we got to see more of Webster and I was happy to read what happened in his life. I also liked the interactions between him and Eve. The investigation of the case showed all the reasons why Eve is such a great cop. She is honest, wears her badge with pride, she doesn't misuse her position and does everything in her power to solve her cases.
I loved the scenes in which Eve manipulated the bad guys and especially their leader. And I enjoyed the interactions between Whitney and Eve and how the commander handled the dirty cops and always supported Eve. As always I also enjoyed the lighter moments of the story, for example a quarrel between Eve and Roarke and a hilarious situation in which Eve has to watch over baby Belle (so cute and made me laugh out loud).
Even after so many parts in this series I'm always super excited to read the next book because the stories still are fascinating and feel fresh.Read more ›
After the disappointment of the last book, Indulgence in Death, which I felt was retread of an earlier book and lacked any real police procedure, I was crossing my fingers that this series and this author hadn't finally run out of steam. Thank God that isn't the case. This book was tightly plotted and a joy to read. From the moment Eve learns about what Peabody overhead, she ready to seriously kick some a$$ and the story goes into high gear and never looks back.
Eve takes a very strong dislike to her prey and begins to play with her like a cat with a mouse. What was so fun about this book was that Eve and her team were always steps ahead of the band of dirty cops they were out to get. Not once did the Bad Lieutenant (ba-da-dump!) have a clue how much trouble she was in. She was nicely outwitted and outplayed.
The entire book was a sting operation wrapped in police procedure. The climax was a total, fist pumping high. From the moment Eve gives the go ahead for her team to start phase one you just sit back and cheer on how satisfactorily they close out the sting.Read more ›
As with all lengthy series, there are some books that hit me on deep levels and set themselves apart from the others. "Treachery in Death" is definitely one of those. Without giving away anything--while saying enough that those who have already read it will understand--the final scene in Oberman's bullpen actually brought tears to my eyes. I almost think this book would have lived up to the title of "Loyalty in Death" even more so than the novel actually by that name. I loved, loved, loved this book.
I laughed right out loud when the Candy Thief was brought back into play. I can't help but be curious about who the Thief is but I live in fear of the book that outs him/her. I feel like that will be a major clue the series is coming to its end. I am really not prepared to deal with that, not by a long shot.
Great book, great plot, typical pithy banter. All the ingredients that make this series so addictive.
