Top Customer Reviews
There are two things that intrigue me most when I got started on Book 1 of this fantastic series; firstly, to know more about this futuristic world where interplanetary travel is very much possible, and secondly, to follow the development of the lead couple who seem so different in characters, yet so perfect for one another.
Reading this series is like watching a TV serial for me. I love it that the books are still coming out year after year. I strongly encourage those who love crime-related cum romance novels to get started on these!
The heroine is Lt. Eve Dallas, a homicide detective in New York City in 2058. She is a smart, strong, independent, gutsy, sassy, no nonsence police office who is there to get justice for the murder victums she represents. She is also a deeply wounded woman. She is a brisily, loner, who has few friends and limited experience in making them.
In this book her first suspect is a billionaire who's name is Roarke. He is a charming, handsome irishman with a great sence of humor who has lived on the edge, and still might be. There is great chemistry between Eve and Roarke and he quickly falls hard for Eve. she is drawn to him but can't figure him out and is totally afraid of her feelings for him. She has never had one than a one night stand with a man. So while there is a bit of romance in this story, it is not a romance. It is about murder in a future USA. I enjoyed the characters so much that I have already bought the first five books (there is a total of 43 so far).
But I digress. Naked In Death is a shocking title. So are the crimes it describes, that Eve Dallas is investigating. The prime suspect, it seems, is Roarke. Hotness ensues. Both characters are haunted, damaged, and just so right for each other; the mystery is pretty awesome, too. It's a very nice balance of clues, sex, and the future, though since we're now only ten years away from the Dallas-Roarke world, with its space station spa and air cars, reality has a bit of catching up to do.
