Book Description

24 Jan 2006 In Death
Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She’s got no problem dealing with a holiday reveller in a red suit who plunges thirty-seven stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa. " But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it’s all Eve can do to hold it together. Instantly, she’s plunged back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl - trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling. Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve’s husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise - and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife’s childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door - and makes it clear that she’d be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again. But just a few days later, Trudy’s found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy’s bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman’s hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memories didn't mesmerise me 18 April 2006
By Scriber_scouse VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is the newest of the In Death series, for those not in the know, and although the titles can be read as stand alones (some more easily than others) this is definitely one for the long term disciple of the In Death universe. If you're new to this series start with Naked in Death the first, you won't regret it. Unfortunately, I regretted impulsively buying this in trade paperback, not that it isn't an engaging and gripping tale but because it felt a little flat after the frantic pace of its gripping predecessor Origins in Death. Memory is perhaps the most insular of the In Death's thus far- we open with a dead Santa Claus who after imbibing too many illicit substances decides to test himself against gravity. Peabody is quickly assigned her first active primary role in closing the case of the Santa pavement pizza.

Meanwhile, Eve Dallas the hard core, uncompromising futuristic homicide cop is reduced to being the small broken child found in a Dallas alleyway when she is confronted by Trudy, one of her more abusive foster care mothers. The opening chapters of this novel are chock full of promise; we will finally get to see a little more of the jigsaw that is Eve's past, see those murky in between years between the alleyway and the police academy and these are the sections that truly grip the reader.

If you're not moved by Eve's mini breakdown in the opening chapters then you have no soul. Roarke's much touted scene with Trudy as he deals with her blackmail in his usual uncompromising manner didn't live up to my expectations, nor did his argument with Eve immediately after; the first was nowhere near chilling enough (where did the avenging angel Roarke of Purity go?

5.0 out of 5 stars J D Robb does it again! 4 July 2006
Format:Paperback
When I first got this book I did, as usual, read it as quickly as humanly possible because I couldn't wait to see what happens. As usual, though, Ms Robb makes you slow down and breathe in the air of this New York city that she's created: from the stench of the soy dogs from the glide carts in the streets, to the smell of death, through to the clean air of the home that Roarke and Eve share.

I love all of the J D Robb books, so I can't say that I'm not unbiased. But, I will say that this book is a fantastic reward to all of the fans out there who have been following these masterpieces.

I think that the book will be good on its own but, knowing the characters as well as I do by now, this book is cherishable. J D allows the new readers to join in but, to the long-term fans, the little in-jokes and the shorthand makes it a little bit more special.

The faith and belief in this world and its characters that's been created by Ms Robb for our reading pleasure is amazing. As usual, it's the little, everyday things that make you a true believer in how the world's going to look in 55 years or so!

With this book, you also now get to delve into Eve's past - and see how she comes through it again.

This is a fantastic series, with strong but different female characters that show, time and again, that we can find the strength from within to overcome. We may have setbacks, and we may stumble, but we can always dust ourselves down and get back up again.

Although, it would be easier if I had Rourke by MY side!

P.S. HUGH JACKMAN FOR ROURKE!

4.0 out of 5 stars SUSPENSE TRIGGERED BY PAST TRAGEDY 1 Feb 2006
By Gail Cooke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
With "Memory In Death" Nora Roberts writing as J. D. Robb shows readers a very vulnerable Eve Dallas, making an already affecting character even more appealing. Of course, her courage and strength are evident yet this Eve elicits our sympathy as well as our respect. Needless to say, it's one more suspense filled page-turner from this popular author.
The old holiday tune "Santa Claus Is Comin' To town" was given new meaning when St. Nick plunged some 36 stories to the pavement below. No reindeer or sleigh to catch him - only Lt. Eve Dallas and Detective Peabody trying to keep the crowd back. It is Christmas 2059.

Seems that there had been a company party with refreshments primarily consisting of liquor and chemical packages. Enough to make Santa try to fly over the chimney tops. While Eve well knew she couldn't pin murder on the drug seller, she thought she could get him for something. He was found at Zero's, which was one step up from a dive with revolving bar and private cubicles. The provider is Zero himself, a pint size package of bravado in a loud suit.
Once Eve and Peabody take him in, it is Peabody who interrogates and gets him to give himself up. Case is almost closed, but Eve isn't there to see about it because she has an unexpected and unwanted visitor in her office - Trudy Lombard, her former foster mother, a woman who enjoyed raining insults and abuse on nine-year-old Eve. At the sight of her Eve crumbles as memories of her desperate childhood surface. She tells Trudy to get out and bolts for the safety of home.
Once there Roarke is as protective as ever, vowing not to let Trudy upset Eve again no matter the cost.
