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.

Rise Of A Phoenix by Phill Syron Jones

Rise of the Phoenix
Rise of a Phoenix is an exciting action thriller set in New York. It opens with kidnapping and a brutal murder. Homicide detective Samantha McCall and her team soon find themselves on the trail of a serial murderer.
Mixed with this is the exciting figure known by many names such as The Shadow, The Phoenix and The Lone Wolf. John Steel ex-Navy SEAL operative, joins the NYPD team whilst on his own search for Santini. The name behind a vicious past that drives Steel forward. Steel reminded me of James Bond at times as the action took off involving Russians, hired thugs, homeless men and an array of weaponry.
There are plenty of twists and turns and the storyline kept me enthralled until the end.
