INDULGENCE IN DEATH by J.D.Robb #MurderMystery #Bookreview

Indulgence in Death (In Death, #31)Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Indulgence in Death is #31 of the series, a futuristic murder mystery set in New York. Part of a series of books featuring NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas it is easily a stand alone read.

The book opens in 2060, beautiful picturesque Ireland, Eve and husband Roarke take a vacation and visit family. We are quickly plunged into a murder scene, which is a bit of a shock for the peaceful local community and Eve has to step in and guide the local officer through his first murder case.

Holiday over, Eve is back in her comfort zone with the New York city buzz. It’s not long before she is called to an unusual killing, the murder weapon a crossbow, the victim a High class chauffeur. This is followed by a second murder, a high class licensed companion brutally stabbed in a chamber of Horrors on Coney Island. It looks like the killer buys his kills, is showing off and is thrilled by the kills.

With the body count rising higher, suspects in the open,  Eve and partner Peabody must find the links, the tiny threads and connections to close this case down before more innocent people are killed.

I always enjoy a J.D. Robb read. Eve is a sparky, sharp character, who is passionate about her work and the author brings this out with the depth of the writing. She is played off well against her work partner and her husband. The futuristic elements set these books apart from other NYPD police mysteries, but don’t over-shadow the police work. As readers we are taken every step of the way alongside Eve as she strives to stop the killer.

Born in Death (In Death, #23)Born in Death by J.D. Robb

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m a big fan on all of Nora Robert’s books. Here she is writing as J.D Robb. Set in the 2060 Eve Dallas is a feisty Lieutenant in the NYPSD, thrown into a double murder investigation, Eve and her team must dig deep under the layers of a top accounting firm. Meanwhile Eve and her sexy Irish Husband have agreed to be birthing partners for her best friend Mavis. As the birth draws nearer, they attend prep classes and Eve must organise a baby shower. For Eve these matters are much more fearsome than finding the killer of her victims. On top of this Mavis has a friend who goes missing and she pressures Eve to run this second investigation alongside the first. The tension builds when a third body turns up and still Mavis’s missing friend doesn’t show. Running on little sleep and too much caffeine Eve finally finds a horrifying link between them all, will she be able to rescue Tandy in time?
