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?
“The Doctor’s Deceit” is the follow on book from “Vanguard of Hope”, set in the 1800’s it deals with a society trying to protect innocent victims of sexual abuse, rape and prejudice. I really liked this book and the way the author has developed the story from a set of diaries. The Sapphire Brigade do their best to protect victims and go further than the police in dishing out punishment to those who have abused. It highlights the length to which people will go to help others. Another good book from author Kathy Steinemann.
This is what Kathy said about her books;
“I am going to keep producing these books in an attempt to give victims a voice. The next book will have a section containing letters from victims to the Sapphire Brigade. If any victims of such abuse in today’s world want to get in touch with me, I would be happy to include their wish lists. The letters might have to be re-worded somewhat in keeping with the time frame (late 19th century early 20th century). For such people the writing process is giving them a forum to vent their frustrations, because their stories are real.”
If anyone wants to get in touch with Kathy, contact me and I’ll pass on your details.
