Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Happy hour in a Manhattan bar becomes a scene of carnage when a potent hallucinogenic-drug mixture, released into the air, causes everyone inside to attack everyone else. While members of the NYPD unit headed by Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon identify the drugs, they can’t stop another incident days later at a nearby cafe. With a total of 127 dead and the looming threat of another incident, Dallas and her colleagues (with Dallas billionaire husband, Roarke, who owns the bar, serving as a consultant) race to check out victims, including the few who survived the attack, as they search for connections and motives, with an unexpected assist from the historical knowledge of Roarke’s live-in butler. Although sleepless for days, Dallas remains at the top of her game in this thirty-fifth entry in this suspense series by the prolific Robb (aka Nora Roberts); and even with the help of modern technology, it’s still dogged police work and keen intuition that solve crimes. With its final twist, this is a compelling addition to a best-selling series. --Michele Leber --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

It's an ordinary enough scenario; happy-hour at a downtown bar, where white collar workers meet and relax for an after-work drink. Then the bar's patrons and staff start to get headaches...and something goes horribly wrong. Twelve minutes later, over eighty people are dead.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas thought she'd seen it all, but nothing could prepare her for the crime scene she steps into. The victims were all killed by each other and what few survivors there are all report massive delusions. It seems that everyone in the bar was exposed to a lethal cocktail of drugs designed to drive them to homicidal insanity. Eve and her team must discover who the killer is and fast, because the virus is airborne, and no one in New York is safe.

Eve, Roarke, their colleagues and loved ones face what is perhaps their most frightening case to date in DELUSION IN DEATH. Author J.D. Robb ups the tension in this engaging futuristic suspense by creating a terrorist threat that's terrifying in its plausibility. I was practically on the edge of my seat as I read DELUSION IN DEATH, putting the pieces of the case together alongside Eve. I fear I cannot say too much about the case without spoiling the story. Suffice it to say this isn't your average homicide, and the urgency with which Eve and her team work to catch the killer will have you reading late into the night.

In general, the IN DEATH books tend to fall into two categories; case-centric and character-centric. DELUSION IN DEATH is more of a case-centric story, but that doesn't mean Ms. Robb skimps on character growth. Eve - and by extension, Roarke - hasn't fully dealt with the aftermath of what happened in NEW YORK TO DALLAS.

Please forgive typos, doing this from my phone. It starts out with a mass murder and just keeps going. While the last book was pretty relationship driven this goes back to police work and lots of it. I am not going to get into a ton of detail - I don't want to give away spoilers and the first chapter dealt with the mass murder and had been released and out - so no spoiler there.

There are moments with great relationship growth, it actually surprised me because of the scope of the investigation. But they are moments - it is not the book.

Also good news, things are not be sent out for anal as much. Lol that drove me nuts.

The only criticism I might have for this book was that I felt it over used Eve mixing up her metaphors. It was cute at first however she did it more than normal and I rolled my eyes on a couple.

This one didn't have great Roarke moments, in fact it seems more like they have both settled into their marriage. Eve has grown a lot and does not make the immature mistakes with him she used to. There just wasn't that tension we frequently get with them, but after the Dallas book - I am not surprised.

I loved the book but I don't feel like I need to re read it right away. I can not my finger on it, it was a good book but not a favorite of this series. One of my favorites from this series is Treachery in Death To me it had it all - the case and the relationship, it is in my top 5, probably top 2. This one is really good but not a stand out.

If you are are new to the series start with Naked in Death (In Death, Book 1)h.

A good police procedural but lacking in the sense of humor and individual characterization that hooked me into this series from the beginning.

The trend seemed to start with New York to Dallas. I could understand it in that book as she was in a different city. However, I noticed it in the book after that as well and it was very noticeable in this book. None of the little scenes that offered Eve the chance for one of the rants I've always enjoyed so much about this series.

Some of my disappointment is certainly because I've always had such high expectations of this series. It's certainly a good police procedural but for a character-driven reader it just doesn't have the vivid individuality I expect from this series.

This book continues the downward decline of the In Death series. I never thought I'd say this, but I think someone needs to stick a fork in this series, because if this is how the series is going to play out from now on, it's way past done!

The plot premise starts off interesting with an unknown chemical causing the deaths of all the occupants of a bar. But what starts off interesting quickly degenerates.

My biggest pet peeve is that there are large chunks of the story dedicated to dream sequences as Eve struggles - again - to come to grips with her past. And then there is another chapter dedicated to her discussing her past with Mira. Come on...this has been gone over again and again in this series, and quite frankly, it's getting redundant. It is especially annoying that it takes up such huge chunks of the current story. It looks like what it is: filler, plain and simple.

I also think the sex scenes between Eve and Roarke are becoming stale and rote. How many times can they make love in the shower and then lie spent on the shower floor, mentioning they are too worn out to move? I swear the scenes in this book were almost word for word from the scenes of previous In Death books! I remember a previous In Death book where Eve and Roarke are spying on that actress and her lover, and Roarke remarks, "They aren't very imaginative, are they?" or something to that effect. Well, Eve and Roarke and far from imaginative in this book - actually, they've never been particularly imaginative. I could do with less sex and more of the crime/mystery/thriller in this series!

My other gripe is the way that the interviewers purposely play up on the "I'm a weak female" angle when questioning the suspect for these crimes.
