Books by J.D. Robb

A
Naked In Death

Clever lady, Nora Roberts. With the first book of this series, she has created a world of the future, but she’s placed it only far enough away so that some of us, with the right medical care and a little luck, might live to see it. It is the world our grandchildren will inherit, and Ms. Roberts gi ...

B
Concealed in Death

Concealed in Death is a nice addition to the long-running In Death series - and a considerable improvement over the last book, which featured an immature, annoying serial killer villain. This one features a crime that took place in the past, and gives some insight into some favorite characters’ pa ...

B
Calculated in Death

Narrated by Susan Ericksen I haven’t listened to all of the In Death books. I’ve discovered that the more gruesome, serial killer books with sections told from the killer’s POV just don’t work for me in audio. Fortunately this is more a police procedural, and I enjoyed the audio version a ...

B
Delusion in Death

Delusion in Death is the 35th J.D. Robb book, the latest installment in a series that’s been going since 1995. So many years, so many books. If you’re not current with the series, just the idea of starting has to be somewhat intimidating (because yes - you really need to read them in order). ...

Celebrity in Death

This was a relief. After the dark intensity of the last book, the opening chapters of this book read almost like a cozy mystery set in the future. In addition to its lighter tone, all of the characters I’ve come to know and love - mostly MIA in the last book – are back. I enjoyed this one a grea ...

Fantasy in Death

Fantasy in Death is the thirtieth book in J.D. Robb's In Death series. That feels like a pretty big achievement, not only for Robb, but for those of us who've read them all. (If that includes you, go pat yourself on the back). If you have read them all, you know that there are the seminal books - th ...

B
Kindred In Death

Both Eve and Roarke have seen and experienced much in the course of their lives, but the crime that opens Kindred in Death shakes them both. It’s Peace Day in New York – a holiday that commemorates the end of the Urban Wars, and Eve has two whole days off. She and Roarke are just lying about ...

A
Promises in Death

I’ve been ambivalent about some recent entries in this series, finding them to be rather forgettable. But with Promises in Death, J.D. Robb is back for me. I loved this book. Death strikes close to home, when Detective Amaryllis Coltraine is murdered. Amaryllis recently transferred from Atlanta ...

B
Salvation In Death

Despite the name change and the shelving in the crime fiction section of the bookstore, I read J. D. Robb’s In Death series for the romance, so much so that I differentiate the novels not by the crime committed but by what happens to Eve and Roarke in their relationship. Given the considerable cro ...
