In Death series

A
Rapture in Death

I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m in a romance slump right now, but I will admit that many of the current offerings are not exactly exciting for me. I hate vampires, and I’ve read one (or more) too many paint-by-numbers Regency Historicals. Perhaps that explains my In Death re-reading maratho ...

Born In Death

Born in Death has a fantastic beginning, an even more fantastic ending and a middle that sags dreadfully. Eve is her usual kick ass self, but Roarke, Peabody, McNab, and the rest of the NYPSD all kind of stand around like extras. The plot involves murdered accountants, and while I know that number c ...

B
Memory in Death

2005 will forever be the Year of the J.D. Robb Glom for me. I read Naked in Death in March and have since read all of the 23 books and two anthology contributions which comprise the series - and loved, to varying degrees, them all. Yes, I am firmly planted on the In Death Bandwagon. And so must you ...

Origin In Death

I actually read this book for the first time several months ago. Nearly every book that gets reviewed passes through my way first, but I don’t usually have time to sneak a peek at any of them; I just have too much on my plate. When I spot a J.D. Robb book, I generally make the time. So I read this ...

A
Survivor in Death

It’s almost ridiculous how many DIK reviews we’ve given Nora Roberts (and her alter-ego, J.D. Robb). Believe it or not, some readers have actually found that suspicious: does Nora have AAR in one of her stylish pockets? The answer is no. It’s just that she’s really good. We can’t help ...

Visions in Death

Every time a new J.D. Robb comes out I snap it right up. It's now book twenty and while I'll admit that the book did sit on the table for a few days (as opposed to my sitting down and reading it in one gulp like I did at the beginning), Robb still delivers with each new entry. Her latest is solidly ...

Divided in Death

Counting all the books and novellas, Divided in Death is the 21st entry in the long-running series about Eve Dallas, her husband Roarke and her friends in the NYPSD. That's a long time to be following one group of characters, and while many readers will disagree, I think the series is starting to sh ...

A
Remember When

I love visiting Eve and Roarke, as I always feel like I'm hanging out with old friends. All the wonderful aspects that go into their stories are present here. Samantha Gannon, granddaughter of Max and Laine (from the first part of Remember When), is a published author and has been on tour pro ...

Imitation In Death

I've read any number of series that start out good, but get stale along the way. Not so with J.D. Robb's In Death series. Not only are Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her mega-billionaire husband Roarke still one of the best couples in romance, but there are also enough good secondary characters in the bo ...

A
Portrait in Death

Portrait in Death is the 16th entry in J.D. Robb’s In Death series, featuring police officer Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke. At the beginning of the novel, Eve is called in to investigate a particularly troublesome murder. After killing a young university student, the killer contacts the ne ...
