Book Description

6 Nov 2008

A priest is conducting the funeral service for a beloved member of his congregation. But when he lifts the chalice to his lips, he dies suddenly and horribly - poisoned by the blood of Christ.

Who would want to murder a parish priest in such a way? And who could get access to the closely guarded communion wine?

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called to the scene to investigate. Although initially there seems to have been nothing out of the ordinary about the priest's life, there is something about the situation that just doesn't add up. And then she starts to uncover the evil lurking behind the ceremonial robes. The dead priest was not who he seemed to be - he harboured a dark, deadly secret that could bring Eve's own demons rushing back . . .

Warning - spoiler
"Salvation in Death" number 27 in the In Death - series is one of the best so far. There are two cases (one especially seizing), Eve and Roarke at their top and a lot of Peabody, McNabb and co. - so there's all a good "In Death"- book needs.
"Salvation in Death" starts with the murder (through poison) of a catholic priest during mass. The priest, a highly appraised member of the community, seems to have no enemies and besides the church no real family. He cared especially about the youths in his community and every member of the church looked up to him. But when the autopsy of his body brings some old scars and a covered tatoo to light, Eve starts to realize that the priest may have some dark secrets in his past. And when the tatoo points to a ruthless gang of youths that terrorized the people in the community years ago Eve is no longer convinced that the priest really was the one who he posed to be.
When another religious leader is killed in a similar way Eve and her team have to investigate if there is a serieal killer on the hunt or if this cases have nothing to do with each other.
Especially the first murder case is gripping and up until the end you don't really know the reasons for the murder. Case two is interesting as well and both show the reader that under the cover all can be different and that humans are experts in being pretenders. The combination of the church and Eve is really interesting and Eve is at her best although she is unsure about how to handle the catholic rituals and all that is going on in a church. But with her approach to respect people for what they do and not for what they are Eve handles the situation without too many complications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! 17 Nov 2008
The In Death series are fantastic books. I pray they never end. Each one takes you through the rollercoaster ride with Eve and Roarke. Salvation in Death is the 27th book in the series.The book starts with the death of a priest and Eve the brilliant homicide cop needs to find the killer. There are twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. For the ladies Roarke is the ultimate reason why you should read this book with his good looks and Irish charm you cant go wrong. It still had me guessing at the end! I could not put this book down and read it in a day. I am now excitedly waiting for the new book to come out.

For those of you who have not read any J.D Robb books yet you need to buy Naked in Death. This will hook you from the start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't read it fast enough !!! 1 Dec 2008
Eve is back ! If a fan of the in death series there is a certain expectation of what's to come. This book does not disappoint, had to finish it in one sitting!! Just when you think it's all sorted; wham a cracking twist to the tale starts the pulses going again.There's religon,trust ,family, lust,love and obsession all mixed in to make this an absorbing read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eve is my not-so-guilty pleasure 9 Jan 2009
By L. J. Roberts TOP 1000 REVIEWER
First Sentence: At the mass of the dead, the priest placed the wafer of unleavened bread and the cheap red wine on the linen corporal draping the alter.

Performing communion can be deadly. At least it was to the priest officiating at a funeral service. One sip of from the chalice and he is dead.

One other small problem; as Eve investigates, she discovers he's not really a priest either. Instead he is someone who appeared five years prior claiming to be, and having had facial surgery, a priest who now can't be found. Eve has to determine whether the missing priest or the impersonator was the target and who is the killer.

Robb/Roberts has not lost her touch all these books later. She still knows how to grab the reader from the very beginning and keep you going until the very end. She creates great characters and sharp, crisp, often funny dialogue that you can hear in your head and sometimes even want to read out loud.

Eve is one of my favorite female characters. She is tough, smart, somewhat socially awkward and, I'm happy to say, starting to recover from the abuse of her childhood. There are some rather graphic intimate scenes, which can be skimmed over, but also show the less tough, more vulnerable side of Eve. Her husband, Roark, Is involved in this story, but less actively than in the past.

Sense of time and place is very well done. The story is set just far enough in the future to allow for imaginative technology in electronic devices and transportation. Still, it doesn't ignore that some things continue on in time such as a woman baking bread from scratch as her grandmother once did.

The story is very well plotted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Roberts 1 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
J D Robb fans will not be disappointed by this installment.

What I enjoy most is how Roberts is able to make her bad guys thoroughly unlikeable and this story is no exception. The victim's past keeps developing the more the case is investigated, spurring the reader on to the end.

This is not the best story but certainly holds its own in the series.

Another great story about Eve Dallas and the NYPD together with her relationship with her husband Roarke. I think that you wouldhae nneded to have read the res of the series to gtet the full benefit of the characters in this book, but it does still stand alone.
