New York detective Eve Dallas had no problem finding the connection between the two murders. Both victims were beautiful, highly successful women whose glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects, including her own lover, Roarke.
J.D. Robb is the pseudonym for author Nora Roberts, who has created yet another memorable heroine in Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas. This New York Times bestselling author's latest novel deftly blends romantic suspense and futuristic technology to create a unique, unforgettable story. Original.
The first victim was found lying on the sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding convictions of the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long lost of suspects -- including her own lover -- Roarke. As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead . . .to investigate every scandalous rumor . . .to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.
***The verdict is still not out on my feelings towards the J.D. Robb series. I am enjoying the mystery aspect and in this one I had no clue as to the real murderer was until the very end. At times I still find myself confused with the whole futuristic aspect of these novels. However, I still plan on reading more of them as I have heard from others that they get better as the series goes on.
WILD RELEASE NOTES:
The book is set in the future and I enjoy reading about the things Robb envisions for the future. Last book I noticed that Quebec was listed as its own country. This time, Eve Dallas, the main character, calls God a "she" plenty of times. It makes you wonder if maybe the society finds proof in the future that God is a female?
This story finds Dallas hunting for a murderer of powerful women. She tries to paint herself as a target, and fails. I suspected the who the murderer was right from the beginning and I didn't understand why she didn't ask him any questions? Infact, I second guessed myself because I thought maybe I had missed something in the book to explain why he couldn't be the murderer and that's why they weren't questioning him. I didn't think that part was too well written. Any good cop that isn't trying to build suspense for a novel would have asked him questions the first time he was at the scene.
The relationship between Eve and Roarke was enjoyable. Their chemistry is great and they are a fun couple to read about. What is Roarke's first name though? Or is Roarke his last name and he has no first? It would be nice to see Summerset fired. Or at least explain what his problem is. There was also the introduction of a new cop, Peabody, who I would like to see work side by side with Dallas eventually (and I'm sure she will). So long as she doesn't take the place of Feeney though, that guy is great!
This was a fun book.
