“While Robb serves up twists and turns in ample portions, the main attraction is still the character of Eve, who will win over readers with her ability to persevere in seeking a killer while coping with her personal demons.”—Publishers Weekly

I love the characters. I love the interactions. I know to some it feels like these characters never go anywhere. To me, every six months to a year I feel like I got to catch up with some really great friends.
In this book I love the case. It's intriguing and really sucked me in.
There are so many detailed reviews of this already, I'm just going to skip that part and add my 5 stars to the list and tell you I loved it.
What do my favorites have in common?
1. These are the ones that have (for me) interesting cases.
2. Funny interactions between Eve and the rest of the world. Eve has a unique tale on the world and her comments are often hilarious.
3. Because of her abnormal childhood, she odd lapses in her education and social development that she is only now overcoming as an adult. It's fun for me to watch this fictional character learn to become the best human being she can be despite that horrid childhood.
4. Lots of page time for the ongoing collection of returning characters. I love her supporting characters. The cops on her team and her friends.
5. Some other unknown quality that calls to me.
Things that are NOT considered in my favorite ratings:
1. The sex scenes between Eve and Roarke. Not a factor for me. Most of the time, the pages of description of their sexual couplings could be omitted without changing the book for me. I know from reading the reviews of others that the sexual relationship and the love relationship between Eve and Roarke are all that matters to some readers. I am not one of those readers.
2. Foul language. Yeah, I was shocked when I read my first "in Death" book by the prevalence of foul language. Now I mostly ignore it.
3. Whether other reviewers like the book or hate it. I decide on my own whether I like something. My parents taught me to think for myself.
Why this title is a favorite: The whole craziness of this crime is very interesting. Figuring out how it was done and who did and why makes this an interesting case.
Eve was doing whatever she was doing and gets a call that there's a new crime.
Peabody drops whatever she's doing and shows up as well.
Roarke uses his electronics to hunt for info and is of course brought into the case as an expert civilian consultant...again.
The fat cat weaves in and out of everyone's legs.
Eve searches for insults to hurl at Sommerset.
Eve has nightmares.
Eve has Dr. Mira do crime profiling and also makes time for her personal life to discuss and is given tea she doesn't want.
McNab is in weird clothes as usual and they're described as usual.
While working on clues the killer strikes again.
Eve and Roarke make love.
A big deal is made about the police stations bad coffee.
With so many of these books on the market, Ms. Roberts (J.D. Robb) really needs to shake it up now. Someone needs an unexpected pregnancy.
A main character needs to get very ill or die.
Doesnt matter WHAT changes. What matters is that SOMETHING changes. This book was boring. There were even mistakes and typos not caught by the pros.
There's no denying Ms. Roberts (Writing as J.D. Robb) is a great writer because she is. She's also one of my favorites but she's stuck in a rut.
New York To Dallas was much, much better.
Now that everyone is back in N.Y. and back at their regular jobs, something needs to change and in a big way if this series is to continue.
There are too many of these books to only have had a small amount of time go by. (I think a year or two at the most)
Simply put, this was boring and did nothing for me in the way of interest.
Shake up this series!!!

The main characters of Eve, Roarke, Peabody, & all their friends are not expanded or progressed in this book, & with hindsight I would have been happy to skip this one & go on to the next, which hopefully will be a better effort.
