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.

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.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By L. J. Roberts TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 Jan. 2009
Format: Hardcover
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
I've read pretty much all of the in death series and I found this one quite lack lusture. It almost reads as though it was written by someone else - perhaps Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb as got a ghost writer in! I cant even put my finger on what exactly was off in the writing, it just felt like a totally different author, certain phrases or things the characters said just didnt ring true with what you would expect them to do or say. I also felt that the secondary characters were all mising from this one! Its all Eve and Roarke wih a little Peabody thrown in - maybe thats what some of the fans were askng for but I missed Mavis, Leonardo, Louise, Charles and the rest. Dr Mira hardly gets a peep either. Maybe if I hadn't read all the other books I would have enjoyed this more. It is a good solid murder story and could make an easy introduction to the series if you didn't want to go all the way back to the beginning!
