WHAT an imagination Roberts has! To imagine the future through her eyes... I love the way Eve and Roarke interact. She is her own person and he loves her for this-never trying to make her something else. And, at the same time, she is able to admit that she needs someone too!
I loved Rapture in Death. This is perhaps the best "Death" book so far. The VR Goggles were a trip! The idea of manipulating musical undertones to control a person's behavior... Where does she get her ideas? So believable!
Lieutenant Eve Dallas does not even get to finish her honeymoon in peace. In the last stage of their trip, Eve is spending some time in one of the many resorts off-planet Roarke owns and is involved in a case when an employee is found hanged in his room. Even though there are no reasons for this person to commit suicide, there is no other logical conclusion, so that is the ruling at the time. Back home and after resuming her duties, Eve has to spend a day in court facing a pushy and crafty defense attorney, but her hate turns to surprise when he is found hours later as a victim of an apparent suicide. When she discovers that a politician with no reasons to kill himself jumped from a building, the coincidence becomes too much and Eve gets deeper and deeper into one of the toughest cases she has faced yet.
J.D. Robb maintains a high level of quality in terms of writing, a fast-paced action and a good character development. At least for me what happens with the relationships between the characters is half the fun. Peabody is given a more prominent role as Eve's aid after the last case, in which a criminal working from within the police department used the young cop for his evil purposes. We even get to take another step towards understanding Eve's childhood, since in this installment she remembers more facts about what her father did to her and about how she ultimately killed him. This futuristic series has clearly got my attention and it will not let go!
Peabody becomes a permanent recurring character as Eve's aid. I love the Peabody Eve moments they are often funny and/or loving in a true friend way.
I love how J.D. Robb is developing her main characters with each book in this series. All in all it is a good mystery that works as a standalone but also builds on the characters that were introduced in previous books. I enjoy working through a case with Eve and following her thought processes. A good book for they mystery lover and/or romance fan.
