In Death series

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 ...

Devoted in Death

One of the things that I think makes the 40 plus books in the In Death series work is that the crimes don’t all have the same tone. Some can be poignant, some tragic, some are historical, others are hysterical. This one features a set of criminals who struck me as slightly more violent than usual ...

Obsession in Death

This is an anniversary book in a way; It is the 40th novel of the In Death series, probably one of the longest running detective series out there. J.D. Robb is to be congratulated. Not every book in the series is a DIK, but to keep a series running this long and still deliver above average work says ...

B
Festive in Death

Over the years I’ve quit a lot of series. Sometimes because I just got tired of the story line, other times because the sameness of each book got to be too much for me. In spite of the fact that this is the 39th book in the In Death series I am pleased to say that I am still enjoying the stories. ...

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 ...

Thankless in Death

I came into Thankless in Death from a slightly odd perspective: With two exceptions, I haven't read a single book in months, which is a very long sabbatical for me. When I came back in to read the latest Eve Dallas, the re-entry shock almost gave me whiplash. You see, I've read every single one of t ...

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 ...

Calculated In Death

Calculated in Death is the 36th book in the In Death series. The books long ago left behind any passing acquaintance with realism and have become sheer, unbelievable fun. What makes them a joy to pick up is the subtle continued character growth, excellent pacing and revisiting of a world both famili ...

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 ...
