The victim, K.T. Harris, was disliked by everyone who worked with her and even had a tussle with Eve during the dinner. She was playing Peabody in the vid and her resemblance causes Eve and the rest of the NYPSD staff some moments of unease. As they dig deeper into her life and death, they discover that K.T. had lots of secrets and was doing her best to disrupt the lives of her co-workers by various methods such as blackmail and coercion. It seems to Eve and Peabody that everyone has a motive and with the majority of the suspects being actors it is going to be difficult to really find out what happened.
This book has less of the action that earlier books had but more introspection into Eve and Roarke's lives. Peabody and McNab have their special moments as well. Eve is moving on from the events that happened in Texas and coming to some measure of peace. Roarke still worries about Eve but looks back on his life and realizes how much balance Eve brought to him. Their relationship just keeps getting stronger and more loving. There are thirty four books in this series and they only cover a little over two years which adds to the continuity of Eve's relationships both personal and work related.Read more ›
This would not be a good entry point into the series in my opinion because anyone not already in the know about the Icoves and not already invested in the characters is unlikely to find this particular tale compelling. That said, for those of us who read every book as soon as it comes out, this was a welcome quiet story, a chance for Eve to take a much needed emotional breath while exercising her considerable police skills. I was surprised to see how much I enjoyed Eve with some of her sharper edges softened; it certainly seems like recent experiences, while painful, are finally helping her to let go of some of her past and enjoy more of her present.
Not fast-paced, not a constant thrill ride, yet nevertheless a satisfying addition to the Eve and Roarke story that showcases a softer side of both characters.
The pace of this book is much slower and shows little of the actual detective work and collaboration with EDD we've seen in previous books which diminishes the sense of urgency normally felt throughout these books.
I also felt the rhythm of the characters was...off. Roarke and Eve are more deeply in love and more dependent on each other for emotional support as they wade through the aftermath of the happenings in the last book but the repercussions from that last book are never truly addressed. The dialogue between Eve and Roarke was same old, same old in a lot of ways but the interaction between Eve and Peabody seems to have regressed. Other than an early scene between Peabody and McNab that was truly heartwarming and mature the character of Peabody seems to have reverted to an earlier, less secure version of the character. Eve is treating Peabody more like her aid as opposed to her partner which devalues the relationship they've been building and that was so strongly displayed during the recent "Treachery in Death". I miss the smart mouth with a heart Peabody who has grown stronger and more capable with every book.Read more ›

This was a really good read!!!! I love the In Death series and this one did not disappoint. Was a lot lighter than New York to Dallas, that one was stressful and depressing, but... Read morePublished 23 days ago by D. Smith
I love the entire In Death series. JD Robb (Nora Roberts) is a wonderful writer. She allows her characters to grow, change and learn. We are fortunate to get to follow along.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
