From Publishers Weekly

Holy communion spells death for Fr. Miguel Flores, a popular Catholic priest in New York City's Spanish Harlem, after he swallows wine laced with cyanide during a funeral in bestseller Robb's unusually introspective 27th crime thriller to feature Lt. Eve Dallas (after Strangers in Death). The ensuing homicide investigation suggests that Flores could actually be Lino Martinez, a former member of a disbanded gang, the Soldados, suspected of two bombings before he disappeared. The death by cyanide of another religious figure, Jimmy Jay Jenkins, founder of the Church of Eternal Light, complicates matters. Are the two murders connected? Sussing out the answer to that question involves some serious digging. Dallas's husband, Roarke, and fun sidekick, Det. Delia Peabody, lend support. Robb offers a multilayered solution to several crimes that serves as yet another reminder that wolves sometimes hide in sheep's (or priest's) clothing, but justice, like faith, has no expiration date.

From Booklist

The Eve Dallas series of near-future mysteries rolls comfortably along in this latest installment, the twenty-ninth. The series began in 1995 so the author can fairly be accused of cranking them out (she’s also published a book or two under her real name, Nora Roberts). Despite being a lesser product of the Roberts machine, the Dallas novels have a certain charm, in a mass-produced kind of way. The near-future setting (the mid-twenty-first century) is nicely realized without being too excessively detailed; the protagonist, homicide detective Dallas, is a likable and strong character, well able to support a multivolume series; and the cases—including this one, about a murder in an ancient church, the aftermath of which reveals that the victim might not have been the gentle Catholic priest his parishioners thought he was—are imaginative and suspenseful. The dialogue is a little clumsy, and the narrative passages sometimes seem a bit contrived, but there’s a reason so many Dallas novels have appeared in so short a time: they sell. So will this one. --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I loved it.

The book is more about the crime rather than any development of the interpersonal relationships from the In-Death series. Roarke and Peabody are there of course, with a few glimpses of Mira, Mavis, Nadine, Sommerset, as well mentions of other fav characters like Charles and Louise.

I loved the way Lt Dallas goes about solving the crime. I even loved the mini story-in-story about the mega church and its preacher. The premise was was good and of course Ms Robert's expertise in weaving magic with her words is well known.

Why four stars then, and not five? *****SPOILER ALERT***** In the beginning of the book the victim is portrayed as a gray character, someone who has apparently talked about the possibility of redemption for past sins with a colleague in the church, someone who feels strongly about an abused child that he would risk giving up his cover to protect her. As the story unfolds, we see the character as a cold and calculating monster. While I understand that sometimes you can find both personalities in the same individual, I felt that I was reading about 2 different people, not the same person with major defects and some redeeming traits.

But I will say this again, I loved the book. I loved the little scenes between E and R when they are discussing religion. Roarke is majorly uncomfortable with it and he comes across as cutely imperfect. I am glad. He was being painted as SO PERFECT, it was getting annoying.

Next - Suite 606, and then Promises In death in February.

How the mystery is laid out, and the final take down are very consistent with every other book in the series and quite well done. Because one of these murders brings up an ethical question related to Marlena's death, Eve and Roarke end up delving into that situation, and how things rippled out from his form of justice. There are at least two great discussions between Eve and Roarke, two wonderful love/sex scenes that really stand out (one quite funny), and some funny bits of dialog concerning Mira and a purse, Eve and learning the rhumba, Peabody and donuts, coffee or food in general, and a touching moment involving petunias (which Eve had in her wedding bouquet).

Now for the drawbacks. Unlike every other book in the series, the use of the supporting characters is kept to an absolute minimum if they're shown at all (Charles and Louise). Peabody is shown the most but less than usual, and Mira, McNab, Nadine, Feeney, Mavis, Baxter, Trueheart and even Summerset are reduced to plot points. We see more of Ariel, a woman that Eve saved in a previous book, than we do those who are nearest and dearest. Roarke has invested in her cake business, she's brought a stunning one by for Eve, and she's already working on Charles and Louise's wedding cake.

Speaking of Charles and Louise. Their wedding is at Eve and Roarke's, and the wedding shower is mentioned as something that Eve will be hosting but will only have to show up for...and that's it. We didn't get Eve & Roarke's wedding, and it looks like this isn't something the reader will be a part of either.

Another reviewer said that she'd like to see more conflict between Eve & Roarke given their clashing personalities, but I disagree.

I've read all the in Death novels, all of them more than once, but this one I had to force myself to finish. Normally when I get an new in Death book I can't put it down, but this one was ponderous. It dragged on and on and I didn't care about the mystery or anything going on in the book. I agree with others that if felt like someone else had written the book. The dialogue and writing was nothing like the other books, uninspired and unengaging. This and the next few books made me wonder who was writing them and if it continued I would stop reading the series altogether. Fortunately Treachery in Death was so good, my confidence was restored.

To sum it up, I could barely finish it the first time and I can't ever bring myself to read it again it was that tedious.

I will not be writing a synopsis because you can find that above or in the other reviews. I will say that I enjoy this series.
Personally, this was my least favorite of the bunch so far. Was just a bit boring. But what I just can't take anymore is how Eve has now become a master cop, a psychiatrist, a prosecuting attorney, a forensic expert, etc. etc. I mean she doesn't need anyone else! It's better when she needs help with other aspects of the case. It's just really annoying how amazing she's supposed to be. Also getting increasingly annoying is how she doesn't want to eat, sleep or receive any medical help. All of which would make her a better cop! For someone that stands for the dead she's especially crappy towards the living. How does Roarke love watching her work when she's nasty to everyone?! Especially to service people like waiters, hotel staff, secretaries, doormen, etc. Those people that work hard and if they don't do their job they could get fired! Does Roarke want her treating Caro like that? Or the people that work in his many businesses such as hotels, restaurants, etc?!? She's increasingly getting nastier to Peabody. Is it just me? Am I the only one turned off by this?
