5.0 out of 5 stars Possession in death review, December 4, 2010

This review is from: The Other Side (Mass Market Paperback)
Everytime an anthology including a JD Robb novella/short story is released, I will admit that the in death novella is the only one I read so the review will only be that of Possession in death. Possession picks up where the last in death, Indulgence, left off. For those who were disappointed with Indulgence's ending will have a nice little surprise at the beginning with the second interrogation discussed and the actual cookout which was set up in Indulgence. The novellas have a paranormal focus which is totally opposite of Eve's rational side so it is always an interesting combination. Eve is having a hard time after wrapping up the last case and wondering if what she does ever enough for her victims. She comes across a woman in the streets who has been stabbed. While trying to save her, something weird happens and she is possessed by the spirit of the victim. The victim was Gizi, a romanian gypsy, in NY looking for her great granddaughter, Beata, who has disappeared. The novella is short at 80 pages and fast paced so the main focus is that these incidences are most likely related and finding the murderer of Gizi will lead to finding Beata, who Gizi believed was still alive.

The short stories are always an added bonus in between the full length in death books. All the favorite characters are featured with most of them in the beginning at the cookout. Eve has matured so much in the course of the series. It is also an interesting mix of people that Eve now calls family. Marriage to Roarke seems to suit her and she is more comfortable in their relationship in their second year of marriage. For someone who started off with no family and living alone in a dumpy apartment, she has definitely come a long way.
