Publisher's Summary

He is an expert with the latest technology...a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of 10 years past - a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Another Winner from J.D. Robb

I'm trying to space my reading of the "In Death" books a bit, so that I can savor each one rather than just gobble them down in an Eve Dallas frenzy and have no separate memories of individual books. It's not easy, believe me. As I have said in previous reviews, this futuristic mystery, police procedural, romance, thriller series is an addictive guilty pleasure for me.

In this excellent 6th episode in the Dallas-Roark saga, someone is killing off Irish men and women in NYC one by one using bizarre methods. As things progress, it becomes clear that the dead people are somehow connected with an incident far back in the shared past of Roark and Somerset, and that Roark and Somerset are the ultimate targets.

This plot provides the opportunity to explore their pasts in Dublin and learn more about the characters of both men and what shaped them. We also see the deepening and steadying of the love and marriage of Dallas and Roark, the growing friendship and professional relationship between Dallas and Peabody, and Dallas's growing recognition of both the benefits and the obligations of love and of friendship. For me, that is the main attraction of these books: watching Eve Dallas developing into a more complete person, while still retaining a lot of those rough edges that helped her survive her past.

The cast of the books continues to grow -- in "Vengeance " Ian McNabb is brought in to provide e-assistance in tracing the killer's Internet locations. Almost immediately, he is expressing a healthy interest in Peabody. As always, Susan Erickson gives McNabb just the right voice -- brash, breezy, informal and enthusiastic. I continue to be in awe of Erickson's narration -- exceptional quantity and quality of voices and accents.

After this great book, now I have to control myself to wait a whole week, if I can, before starting the next one in the series.

Is there a Roarke out there for me?

I love Nora Roberts, but resisted reading her as J. D. Robb. I decided to try this summer and got the Audible version of the first in her "In Death" series. I absolutely love the books. I think the character of Eve is real enough. Although I realize that the character of Roarke is only a dream, I pretend that he really could exist. The narration is excellent, and the narrator is one of my favorites. I'm reading them in order.
