It is Thanksgiving time in New York and Eve Dallas is being coerced into spending time with her extended family and friends to celebrate the season. She is feeling very thankful for a number of things and some good and happy things happen to her in the course of this novel which she deserves but doesn't always appreciate. Jerry Reinhold on the other hand is thankful for nothing. He holds serious grudges and believes that people have been stopping him for getting everything he wants and deserves in life. This Thanksgiving he will hit back at them.

There are two narratives in this novel and the author splits the book more or less equally between them giving equal time to the thankful and the thankless. It is an effective technique as we move from Jerry and his crimes to the police officers trying to stop him. Everyone knows that Jerry is the murderer here but the police seem always to be one step behind him. Despite it being the holiday season Eve and her colleagues are going to put all their time and energy into catching him.

This is an effective story and rather self contained despite it being number 37 in a series. I think that if you hadn't read any of the others or only a few of them you would easily be able to follow the plot. If you are a fan of these stories you will be pleased to meet many familiar characters, including quite a few who reappear from previous books, but the author has not indulged herself in trying to make sure that all of them make an appearance in this story - some previous novels gave the impression of being be stuffed full of minor characters to the detriment of the story-telling.

This is a smooth and easy read.

"Thankless in Death" by J. D. Robb is another thriller in author's "In Death" series of books.

This time the book is about 26 years old Jerald Reinhold who killed both of his parents and escaped with lot of stolen cash and things that can be sold.
But it seems that these two killings weren't enough for him because he obviously enjoys torturing and killing people that he held responsible for experienced disregarding and insults.

Detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas was put on the case, and although she knows who is the killer she must figure out how to catch the killer, to understand the way he thinks in order to know where his next hit will be. But all that time, the number of victims is increasing...

This book is a bit different from previous installments of "In Death" series. The major difference is due to the fact that reader from the start will know who is the killer, the only problem being how to catch him without any more casualties. Also the book is a bit thicker although it's still page-turner that is easy to read.

If you love thriller books and never read any of J. D. Robb books you should know that these books are the true representatives of the thriller genre.
The reader inside will find all necessary ingredients that make the book exciting - violent crimes, mystery, dark memories from the past, romance, sex...

But although I enjoyed J. D. Robb books earlier, this one was slightly less exciting than the previous ones.
I'm not sure what the whole reason is, but it seems that all or most of it became a routine, that there is no so much passion and excitement in author's writing like there was before.

I kept going with this book, hoping it would improve. I've read the whole series & a couple have been a tad weak but I hated the way this one was written.
I only managed to get half way through & was so revolted I gave up! As another reviewer mentioned, not enough humour & friendship between Eve's "gang" & personal life to offset the nastiness of the murderer. I shan't describe the plot line as most reviewers have already done enough of that.
I'd be annoyed if I'd paid full price is all I can say! I'm hoping the next one is back to JD's/Nora's usual top form, I may wait until I can get it from the library tbh in case she's lost her touch.

This was an astonishment to me; I have been following this series since its inception and never would have believed that I could be bored out of my skull reading a Dallas book.

The storyline was ho-hum and all the usual characters were missing except for Roarke's family over for Thanksgiving, and they just said the same things they say whenever they pop up.

The only good bit was the little girl, who had survived the killing of her family and had gone to live with Roarke's friends, came for Thanksgiving. This could have been really enjoyable finding out how she had adapted in her new home and how she had grown, unfortunately, all you got of her was a quick piece at the end of the book - completely unsatisfactory.

I ended up skimming I was so bored ...is this the death-knell for this series?

I did enjoy the book but missed Eve's interaction with some of her old friends, ie Mcnab, Charles ,Mavis. and Dr Mira.
