The book is part of a series - which revolves around the central character of Lieutenant Eve Dallas - who with the New York Police and Security Dept. Its set in the future - 2058 - which provides the author with the freedom to experiment, not to only in terms of the police environment i.e. the equipment, tools and tricks used by cops in the future, but also the framework of relationships and their evolution.
Eve is presented as being a dedicated,shrewd and hard working cop, who is also trying to come to terms with the fact that she cannot (or rather does not want to) remember the first 8 years of her life. The reasons for that are not completely sketched out, something which presumably, future books in the series would address.
The storyline is fairly simple - Eve is in the middle of an investigation - involving a series of sexual murders of prostitutes, and she finds herself strongly attracted to the prime suspect on the case. This is of course the hero - Roarke (no last name) - who is sinfully rich, sinfully gorgeous to look at but is still likeable for all that. Truly the stuff of fantasy. So she deals with the tugs and pulls of the situation - since she inherently does believe in the value of the badge.
"To serve and protect" is not a byline for her, its her philosophy of life. Getting involved could potentially jeopardise the investigation, more importantly if she is wrong about the man, she would ruin her credibility in her own eyes.Read more ›
New York City, 2058 CE, are the time and setting of "Naked in Death." Robot drones and voice activated machines do menial work, i.e., clean house, serve meals; there is a total ban on guns, (the police use lasers); major improvements have been made in medicine and technology, with advancements in genetics (and strong genetic control); airbuses for public transportation have replaced subways; tele-links replace telephones - but it is not a "brave new world." Minor armed skirmishes have taken place between China and the US, and France had another revolution which lasted for a few years. The overpopulated world has more limited resources - real coffee is rare and way too expensive, as is beef and other fresh meat. Robb has not written a sci-fi series, however. Far enough into the future to make the storyline more interesting, 2058's world is still easily recognizable.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD is called to a murder scene where a young licensed companion, (a legalized prostitute ), has been brutally murdered with an antique handgun from the 20th century. The victim, Sharon DeBlass, is from a very prominent family - her grandfather is a US senator. An angry man who preaches morality and leads an ultra conservative branch of his party, the senator would like to totally suppress the case, and perhaps even run the investigation himself. According to friends and relatives, Ms. DeBlass apparently chose her career not only because she liked sex, she did not need the money, but because she was rebelling against her family and strict upbringing.Read more ›
Eve and Roake make an excelent team and I cant wait to see how their relationship will develop ... Eve is a no-nonsense type of women very quick and smart.
The development of the characters within the book have got me wanting more.
This is such an exciting book I couldnt put it down and actually read it in a day !
NAKED IN DEATH was really good; I couldn't put it down. This series is not true romance; it's more of a romantic mystery, which only adds to the intrigue for me. What makes it so different is that it takes place in the year 2058 and there are many innovative new concepts, such as "off-planet travel," to name just one. I leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.
Of course, her main character, Lieutenant Eve Dallas, is a strong, independent woman ... just the way I like my heroines. And her Irish hero (what else?), a billionaire named Roarke, is more than a match for Eve. They make a fascinating, intriguing couple.
I don't know how Nora manages to come up with "winners" each and every time she writes a book, but she does. What a remarkable talent and a remarkable author! I look forward to reading all the books in this series as well as her entire body of works.
