Nora Robets, writing as JD Robb, has somehow produced this miracle of storytelling through her innate talent as a best-selling writer. I'm in awe of her imagination in coming up with such complex murder mysteries. The main characters, especially Homicide Lieutenant Eve and her billionaire husband, are so well developed and vivid, you feel like they are real people you know deeply and hope to meet. They have faults, integrity, fight, love deeply, and hurt just like the rest of us mere mortals. You root for them and feel strongly about their adventures and relationships, quests, and paths towards justice and finding love. The investment in owning the entire series was worth every single penny because Roberts stories are just that amazing, and always a cut above the rest!!! A must-have series for anyone recognising quality.

I have read all of the In Death books up until now, and after a bit of a hiatus, I resumed the series. While I enjoyed the storyline and thought it was very clever, I am getting disgusted with Eve's character. She has become an irritating, foul-mouthed person. I used to love her edge, but this wasn't edginess, it was nastiness. She doesn't seem to think about her husband other than how he helps to calm her nightmares and provide great sex. Instead of supporting him while he plans a family get together for people he barely know, but seemingly desperately wants to be connected to, Eve lives in denial that they're really coming to visit. She never stops to think about Roarke, only how much she doesn't like kids. It's simply annoying. After so much time in a true and supportive relationship, one would think Eve would grow and begin to explore life, but in this book we only get Eve's snarkiness, complaining and non-stop clichéd cop talk. Enough already.

I really hope that the next couple of books pick up and show Eve's character developing beyond the tip of her own nose.

Eve aside, the storyline was very interesting. It does deal with a topic that many consider to be sci-fi, however, this series is set in the future, and medical advancements could potentially reach that level over the next several decades. There has to be an element of sci-fi to it, just insofar as speculation about what medicine's capacity would be at that time. It was clever and the author obviously devoted more time to creating it than she did to character development in this book.

I'm about halfway through the "In Death" series, and this is by far my favorite. In fact, I've listened to them all as audiobooks, but I liked this one so much that I got a hardcover copy for my library. Unlike the serial-killer setup that's common to most of the series, this is a darkly dystopian story of genetic manipulation. It kept me in suspense from the cryptic opening vignette to the action-packed climax. J.D. Robb (Eleanor Robertson, who also writes as Nora Roberts, Jill March and Sarah Hardesty) is a first-rate writer, and it's an ongoing delight to see how she develops her continuing characters. If you don't know the "In Death" books, but you love apocalyptic and dystopian literature (as I do), this is a great "one-off" for you, and it may prompt you to read the whole series.

4.5 stars!

After basically years of seeing this series around and reading about this mystical Roarke, I gave in and decided to read the In Death Books. It was quite an undertaking, since when I started there were 33 books already released in the series, not counting short stories and novellas. Besides that, deciding to read this series was a big commitment in two fronts. One, I simply had to by 33 books and secondly, I would not be reading anything else until I was done. That's how psychotic I can be when it comes to book series.

December 2011 was when my journey began and by February 2012 I was done and now there is NO turning back. I am IN LOVE with this series! I not only obviously love Roarke, but I love Eve and all the secondary characters that make up this great story as well.

Yes, I have become irritated with Eve at times, but I adored being able to see her grow throughout the series. It has been quite a ride, but one I will never regret hopping aboard.

This series is a great mix of mystery, police drama and romance. I love every aspect of it, from the near futuristic setting, to the way J.D. Robb writes her prose. If there is one thing that bothers me, is that considering the series has 35 books published, the span of time that has passed is very short and I wish the lapse between books was a bit longer. But if you read the books throughout a longer period of time, it won't really matter, but reading them so close together made me wish for that longer lapse.

Eve is such a complex character. All that she has been through has made who she is, but her story is not less heartbreaking because of it. For that matter, so is Roarke's and the fact that these two found each other is nothing less than serendipity. They need each other and I am sure they would never have grown to be who they are in the series by book 35, if not for each other's presence in their lives. Not to mention the "family" they have built with their dear friends.

One of the biggest issues brought up in this series by J.D. Robb, is the Nature Vs. Nurture debate. I love it! It always makes me think and it is very satisfying to see these people that could have become something very wrong, rise above nature and blood, to become amazing people.

On the crime fighting aspect of the series, I find that Robb uses two types of narrative. Sometimes she carries more of a "Monk" style, where the perpetrator is clear if not early on, but soon. The other one is where we get a punch in the face when we finally find out out who it is. I really enjoy that she doesn't have only one style, since that always keeps me guessing =D

I LOVE this series and if you have yet to check it out, please do so! The first few books might not compel you completely, but keep reading! You won't regret it!

It's Christmas time and Eve's foster mother walks back into her life with the intent to blackmail her and/or Roarke. Instead she is murdered and now Eve must stand for her. Eve lets it be known that she knew the victim so there will be no conflict of interest or questions. She then has to go back to her past and other fosters' pasts to find the murderer.

I love this series. Eve and Roarke fight but Eve learns what it means to have someone in her corner who will be there no matter what. She learns to apologize also. Good addition to the series.
