Dear JD Robb,

Thank you for changing it up a little! I was starting to get frustrated with this series but the past two books have renewed my faith in your abilities to tell me a good story. I especially liked that in this one, we know who the killer is from the begin and we get to see his mind unravel. We also get a killer captured without the usual Eve/Roarke getting hurt dynamic. And we get Eve having all the feels. Plus anytime Roarke's family shows up, it's fun. I really enjoyed this one and hope you keep up the momentum! ( )

Listened to audio narrated well by Susan Ericksen.

It's right before Thanksgiving Holidays and Eve is catching up with paperwork until she catches her latest murder investigation. A dead beat man, who blames all his problems on others, rages out on his parents, getting a thrill from the murders only has him killing more. There's a bit of predictability here and I felt the third murder was avoidable, it wasn't like Eve to miss the obvious, even if the author tries to explain it away.

Robb spent a lot more time on the murderer's POV, which made it even more interesting. Peeking into the birth of a psychopath was simultaneously fascinating and appalling, but the author lightens things up with the reactions of Rourke and Eve being given an award and Rourke's family visit. This story was not only about the thankless, but all the Eve and Rourke were thankful for, a nice holiday read that wasn't all about the turkey.

New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas finds the approaching arrival of Roarke’s Irish family rather challenging. But they’re all coming to New York to celebrate Thanksgiving and having the family together for the holiday is a good thing.

However, not all families will be celebrating together this year.

Barbara and Carl Reinhold lie on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned to death. Those savage beatings apparently came at the hands of their twenty-six-year-old son, Jerald. Friends and neighbors struggle to believe that Jerry could have committed such a vile, vicious act but the evidence doesn’t lie.

Eve knows who and how and why; now she needs to find Jerry before he strikes again.

Thirty-seventh in the “In Death” series, this narrative continues its focus on the relationships that remain at the heart of the stories; readers are sure to find much to appreciate as Eve’s slowly-developing people skills are delightful to see and Eve and Roarke’s comfortableness with each other demonstrates the continuing growth in their relationship.

Firmly anchored by a strong sense of place in the near future New York, the unfolding narrative offers readers a truly reprehensible villain: a whiny, irresponsible brat determined to eliminate everyone who has ever offended him in any way. The unfolding narrative highlights the procedural aspects of Eve’s investigation since she knows [as does the reader] the identity of the culprit. Still, there are unexpected plot twists and turns as they chase the murderer and just enough sweet moments, bickering, and humor to keep readers satisfied and to keep the pages turning.

Highly recommended. ( )

Gerald Reinhold wakes one day and kills his mother and father. From there it's a race against time for Eve and the rest of the police department to track him down before he strikes again.

We do get some welcome levity with Eve and Roarke in response to Roarke's family from Ireland coming in for a visit for the Thanksgiving holiday. This really is the first "In Death" novel that shows Eve and Roarke celebrating that holiday and we get a welcome look into New York at that time of year (2060). We also get Eve and Roarke celebrating with friends such as Peabody, McNabb, and Morris.

We also have the welcome appearance from a couple we have not heard or seen from since Survivor In Death which also allowed us an update into several other characters. I have to say that I never really thought of some of the characters from prior novels that Eve ended up saving and meeting and what happens to them later after the novel concludes. Hopefully J.D. Robb including an update on these characters is something that occurs in subsequent novels. We don't need the characters to show up but it would be nice to have some sort of throwaway lines so we can just know what did happen to those characters.

One thing I do love is that we do get some interaction with fan favorites Trueheart and Baxter. We also get to see Dallas be more of a Lieutenant in this one. We usually only have Eve investigating murders and once in a while an aside is thrown on how she is reviewing expense reports or some such thing. In this one we have her interacting with her squad a lot more and it was a very nice change. Robb also addresses again the issues that Eve has with regards to being promoted to Captain because of Roarke and whether that is indeed something she wants to do.

Like some previous "In Death" novels, the reader starts off knowing who the perpetrator is we just have Eve and company doing their level best to capture the murderer before he strikes again. Due to that we don't really have Eve trying to juggle a who dun it with her regular life. Although I did miss the opportunity to watch Eve investigate and winnow down suspects this was still a great read.

Definitely recommend for long time fans of this series! ( )
