Book Description

For him, death was a vocation. He was a maestro in the art of death. The keeper of time. The bringer of destiny.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is as tough as New York cops come. But on discovering the tortured body of a young woman, Eve is catapulted back to nine years ago, when a serial killer plagued the city and taunted her mercilessly.

Putting rings on their fingers and carving their bodies, he was named The Groom. And this time he is working up to his greatest challenge yet: abducting a woman who will test him like never before and become his most gratifying victim yet - Eve.

'A witty, dark, page-turning tale' Jonathan Kellerman

    5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure as always 22 Oct. 2007
    By Clare VINE VOICE
    This is the latest title in the In Death series by JD Robb, it does stand alone but I would definately recommend starting with Naked in Death as there has been a lot of character develpment over the series.

    This story is about a torturer who was active in New York 9 years ago when Eve was a Detective and Feeney was her Lieutenant. The killer was one of the ones who got away, a case that has nagged at Eve and Feeney over the years and now he's back. The story follows the case as they try to make sure they catch him this time, with a great twist at the end. I don't want to give too much away about the story but if you've read and liked any of the other in Death books you won't want to miss this one.

    We get to see more of Feeney and Eve's relationship in this book and as always Rouke and Eve are fantastic (not much in the way of development of their relationship in this book but since they've had lots of ups and downs they deserve to be living the good life as far as their marriage goes.)

    I did think that there was a bit of an update in the kind of technical language that was used during the case in this book...made me think a lot of the tv show Criminal Minds with terms such as unsub.

    I loved this book and would definately recommend it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - yet again!! 1 Jan. 2008
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Love this series, there's nothing like visiting old friends for a few hours of good company.

    This time Eve and her team are tracking a killer they 'lost' the first time around. Many still working remember the first time and are determined to get him this time. More dynamics between Eve and her team this time with her personal life being relatively stable - though don't worry we still see lots of Roarke as a consultant on the case.

    You can read these books as stand alones, but as noted by another reviewer you would miss a lot of character development particularly over the last 3-4 in the series.
    Yes I suppose - as my friend says - they're a bit samey!!! But she just doesn't get it. They are so superbly written, with characters you love, or love to hate and as with all JD Robb/Nora Roberts books within the first couple of pages you feel as if you have known everyone your whole life and would like to meet with them on a regular basis.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and enticing 26 Dec. 2007
    By pufferfish TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    This is the 27th full length book in the series featuring Eve Dallas, futuristic NYPD cop and it still engages the reader in a furiously fast paced murder mystery thriller. I was throughly immersed in the storyline of the serial murderer setting a ticking clock of leaving his victims tortured to death with the time they lasted carved on their bodies. As one body is found, it is known that the killer has started work on the next victim. The killer originally started with a killing spree nine years earlier (predating the start of the series) and Eve and her then partner Feeney failing to capture the killer then. Now the killer is back and his ultimate challange is Eve herself.

    For those who come into reading this series at this point, the story stands up as an excellent mystery thriller with adrenaline with some good sleuthing (although there are references to earlier novels in the series). For those who are fans of the Eve Dallas series, there is more focus on the relationship that Dallas has with her former partner and trainer, Feeney and how they work together, with the rest of their team to capture the killer. As ever, there is the presence of Eve's super rich billionare husband, Roarke and their relationship which has grown more comfortable and contented as the series has continued. There is less emphasis on romantic relationships in this book, though the developments between Peabody (Eve's current working partner) and her boyfriend McNab bring moments of lightness and comedy to a very dark novel.

    This book is a great read and it has drawn me back to rereading previous books in the series. It is fortunate that Ms Robb is prolific there are only a few months to wait between episodes and the reader is eagerly anticipating the next novel in the series... Stranger in Death.

    My first impression was - Wow. You see sides of Eve Dallas you have never seen before. Roarke is his usual charming self but Eve is given a different edge in this book. The Groom who has been dormant for some years now makes a reappearance and I must say that the description of murders / dead bodies were far more descriptive in this book than in others.

    As I got to the middle, I felt - Spooked. It really didn't look as if they would catch him. The Groom attempts to justify his killings and by this stage you know that his ultimate prize is Eve. When Eve is told this, she doesn't believe it at first but as the pieces slowly fall into place Roarke too is shocked at the realisation that he may lose her to a lunatic.

    As I neared the end, I thought - Oh no. Roarke has joined the investigation with everything he has because he knows the stakes are high. Eve is vulnerable. Even if she does not show her fear there is a sense of worry about what the Groom has planned for her. They are racing against time to save his latest victim and you feel the urgency with every turning page.

    My final impression and recommendations - This is the best "In Death" series book I have read. While the others show a tough Eve, this one exposed her. Her relationship with Roarke is strengthened and while the sex gave the book some steam it also signalled the passion the two of them shared. The ending did feel too convenient and easy but in hindsight, it could not have happened any other way.
