Book Description

His heart began to thud, his throat to close. He tried to pull his body from the pool. 'I'll help you', his killer said. He felt no pain.

A young teacher sips a hot chocolate, blissfully unaware that his first taste condemns him to an agonising death. The community around him is devastated and suspiciously protective of their own.

No one is better equipped to see through the lies than homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas, but she is distracted by the arrival of her husband Roarke's ex-lover, an impossibly glamorous vixen, determined to steal Roarke back.

But Eve's personal life must wait when a second murder victim is found, and everyone's eyes turn to the perfect school at the heart of it all. Its secret will soon be out . . .

    5.0 out of 5 stars "could this be the best yet"!! 6 Feb. 2007
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    For me, the release of a new jd robb novel is as exciting as christmas - the anticipation & the joy of reading a new book by her. My husband thinks i'm mad - what does he know - if your a fan you'll know what i mean.

    Innocent in death, i think is jd robb's best work yet!. From the very begining she has you guessing as to why a seemingly innocent teacher is murdered & by whom. The teacher is well liked & loved, he enjoys his job & loves his wife - so why was he murdered. There seems to be a variety of suspects, but the vital links just don't work for Dallas, she is stumped & finds that annoying. On her personal front, Dallas has competion with a stunning blonde who was once involved with her husband Roarke & all the signs show that this stunner still has some hold over him - Dallas is extremely worried!

    There are two storie's in this novel & they are both linked together very well - while reading i was struck by how much of the writing ressembles some of jd's earlier work, the plot & charactors are really interesting & i was always stuck with who could be the killer - there's a great deal going on, the thought process is well set out. In some of her previous works it felt sloppy & dare i say it - a bit far fetched. occasionally you just got fed up with Dallas & Roarke battling it out in a fight with the "baddies", who always seem to get Dallas on her own - this book has none of that.

    Dallas, is almost completely on her own in the book & that makes it more enjoyable, this is intelligent writing with a very good story & at times quite sad. I felt all of Dallas's pain when she thinks that she is losing Roarke, she has been through so much & Roarke is just perfect for her.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Emotional Content & Plot 3 Mar. 2007
    By Scriber_scouse VINE VOICE
    This is the latest of the long runnig sci-fi romance mystery series featuring New York cop Eve Dallas and her high powered global magnate husband Roarke. If you've never heard of these before don't start here go back and read Naked In Death. If you're already up to speed, well then you're in for a treat.

    If you found Born's mystery lack-luster but enjoyed the characterisation; and if you found Memory's background tantalising but thought the mystery and the ensemble team were a little off then Innocent smooths out all of those gripes.

    This time around Eve and her flippant sidekick Peabody are called to investigate the murder of a popular young teacher at a private school. Our top cops are stumped as to motive although there are plenty of people who were on scene and had the opportunity. When another teacher is found dead; their is plenty to motivate his killing but this further muddies the case. Eve's real problems begin though when an old flame of Roarke's called Magdalena blows into town intent on stirring up trouble.

    This is easily the best of the recent In Deaths (although Origin rates pretty high on that score too) the appearances of secondary characters such as Dr Mira, Louise, Mavis and Leonardo are all noteworthy and add to the emotional content of the plot without feeling shoe-horned in. Poor Eve is overcome with fear that Roarke will compare her with the polished Magdalena and be disappointed in his ultimate choice.

    Of course everybody who has read about this couple knows nothing could be further from the truth, but the tension and the heartbreak as Robb writes it makes it seem plausible.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Ha, Ha, Not So Innocent, After All 9 May 2008
    Sometimes I find that I may not fully appreciate a book just because I had something else on my mind. When I go back and re-read the story I often upgrade my original estimation of it. All of the "In Death" books are worth re-reading repeatedly. For those who didn't appreciate this edition's marital strife between Eve and Roarke, just know that the next book won't include that. Remember the tension between Eve and Roarke in "Divided in Death"? That helped define and strengthen this couple and so will their challenges in "Innocent in Death."
    Sommerset and Eve's relationship continues to evolve. They get in a verbal slap or two, but he really puts Roarke on the spot as only he can.
    When we consider all the story arcs for this series it's a mind-boggling thing to say the least. Roarke's family in Ireland, Eve's continuing struggle with nightmares over her lousy childhood, Eve's expanding circle of friends and her bewilderment at all that these relationships entail. And somehow Nora keeps this married couple's chemistry and conversations dynamic.
    I had hoped the Commander's jackass behavior insinuating Roarke might use insider information revealed as he helped Eve in the investigation in the previous installment, "Born in Death," might be built upon in the next installment. It wasn't in this story, but there were so many other things going on that is quite understandable.
    Nadine Furst had been getting left behind a bit. Her bugging Eve for exclusive interviews and the press conferences were at one time one of the great opportunities afforded for Dallas to slap down the nosy press. I'm a newspaper editor and I quite enjoy those parts.
    Nadine's show "Now" premiers with Eve as her first guest. This had a nice moment for the Lt. and Roarke.
