Isaac McQueen - a violent pedophile Eve took down not long after she became a police officer - has escaped prison. McQueen seems more than eager to get back to raping and torturing young girls, but he's added an additional target to his list: Eve. McQueen's sick cat-and-mouse game will take Eve and her husband Roarke from New York to Dallas, where the demons of Eve's past will collide with the terrifying danger that taking down McQueen presents.
Enter the explosively exciting world of Eve and Roarke in NEW YORK TO DALLAS. Author J.D. Robb brings the full gamut of emotions to the table in NEW YORK TO DALLAS and readers are sure to experience every one. I laughed, I cried, I sighed, I smiled, I relaxed and curled up with the book, then I tensed and sat up straight as I eagerly turned the pages.
As one might expect from the lack of "In Death" in the title, J.D. Robb shakes things up in NEW YORK TO DALLAS. Taking Eve out of New York doesn't just equal a location change. She's in unfamiliar territory, doesn't have her partner, her squad, her commander or the familiar resources she's used to. It was interesting, for me, to see Eve in such a situation. What's more, Dallas isn't just any location. As fans of the series know, Dallas is where Eve's life was irrevocably changed. I won't provide any spoilers, but it should come as no surprise that the ghosts of Eve's past - a past she's thought she'd mostly come to terms with - are added to the strain of trying to capture McQueen.Read more ›
If you are new to the series, I would not start with this one. There is such history to get to this point, that I feel you would not enjoy it as much.
Not sure where to start, I don't want to put any spoilers in this because that is one of the things I loved about it was seeing how it unfolded. I was not particularly surprised by what happened, but it flowed so wonderfully that I would not want to ruin any of it for you.
For fans, we got a lot of Eve/Roarke. Because it takes place in another city, the normal cast is there, but not the way it normally is. They introduce us to people Eve met before the series started and we get to know Eve better. What is most striking about this book, is the relationship between Eve and Roarke. We all love him, who wouldn't. But you see the bonds very strongly and you also see the striking difference between the Eve we met 33 books ago to the woman she is today.
There were times I literally had to set the book down and walk away, one because I did not want it to end, and 2 because I felt so much for Eve. This one will make you really feel the emotions, and that is an Excellent book.
So many series devolve at this point, and the last two books have really been some of the best work to date.
This book is worth the Hardback price.
Enjoy, and if you are new to the series do yourself a favor and start with the beginning. It is overall an excellent series. There were a couple books in it I did not love, maybe 4 out of all of them, and they were still really good.
I thought the one-time name change was a big mistake, but having read the book I couldn't come up with a good "in Death" name unless it was "Monsters in Death" because Eve deals with a couple of monster bad guys. I loved the story, the character development, and wrenching self-discovery that Eve goes through. I felt I was standing by just as helplessly as Roarke as Eve battled personal monsters with the live ones. The bad guys got a couple of lucky breaks which normally would have me rolling my eyes in disbelief but these were very plausible and truly well-written.
This book takes place in a totally new environment for Eve and it made me laugh as she deals with the Dallas police and Feds. A great new cast of characters for the series and I hope she keeps in touch with a few of them.
NY2D is now my favorite book of the series, at least until the next one comes along. :)
I find it interesting that this title is referred to as the first non-In Death title of the series. Remember When was written by both Nora and J.D. Robb, and the Robb part was absolutely an In Death and part of the mythology. The diamonds have been frequently referred to in following books.
Except for a signed copy of Naked In Death when it came out in hard bound, I've kept my collection of Robbs in paperback. After reading the library copy, I went out and bought in hard bound, this one is a keeper. I'll want to read it again before the paperback comes out. I bought the audiobook from Amazon and listening was like hearing it all new again, the narrator is fantastic. I highly recommend!
