The switching from surnames to christian names of the acting characters were, at times, quite confusing and I also admit to missing some of the characters which are normally included in her books, and especially missed the interactions between Eve and Summerset and the commaraderie within the NYPSD HQ.
Although it was a reasonable read, on the whole, I was quite disappointed with this book - hopefully better next time with "Delusion in Death" later this year.
BUT this is a great character catch-up piece, a bit like Memory in Death (In Death Series). All of the secondary characters are there and you get time to catch up on how each of them are doing, which is great as usually the books are so action-packed you hardly see any of them (New York To Dallas a case in point!) and then other reviewers complain that they don't see Mavis or Nadine as much as they want to! Poor JDR can't win! However, this reader wins every time a new book comes out, no matter what JDR has in store for us!
This book is slower-paced but there are still interesting twists and turns.
If you are a long-time follower of the series, it is a delicious reward to sink into this world in a frankly much nicer environment to the stench that we're usually in and to actually remember all of the different characters and how far they've come on this journey that JDR is weaving for us.
If you are a newcomer, I do believe that this book will make you want to read at least Origin in Death (In Death Series) which is what the film in "Celebrity in Death" is based.Read more ›
Lt. Eve Dallas couldn't do anything about one of her past cases gaining national attention with a book having been written about it. Now it's being turned into a film and its strange having others play her and those close to her on sets eerily similar to her reality. The worlds of make-believe and reality collide when the murder of an actress portraying Dallas' second, Peabody, occurs at a party.
The J.D. Robb books are one of my slightly guilty pleasures but there's really no reason to feel that way. J.D. Robb is, in fact, mega-bestseller Nora Roberts and she didn't achieve her success by writing poorly.
Robb creates great characters with whom we become involved and invested--they, and their inter-relationships, become almost real to us. And yes, there's sex; a natural part of a married relationship. One of the best parts of her characters is that they have grown and changed through the series. What's remarkable is to think that, in the span of 34 books, the series has only progress about two years in character time; a subtle touch that both keeps the characters form again and adds realism as no policeman only has one major case per year.
Robb writes delightful dialogue with humor, edge and occasionally insight. Her books are set in the near future with just enough sci-fi to be interesting, but real time is catching up to invented time. Don't mistake her books for fluff, however. There is plenty of grit to them, and the hard unpleasant realities of a murder investigation. The plot is complex enough to keep any mystery fan guessing. When I can't identify the killer, I'm a happy reader, indeed.Read more ›
