4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar and comfortable
If you haven't already read any of the "in death" series then don't start here - you will not understand what is going on as the author doesn't introduce you to the characters or fill you in on much background. The first book in the series in Naked in Death: In Death Series: Book 1 which is the place to start. If you have already read some of the books then you will...

3.0 out of 5 stars Tale-wise? OK, but where was the gang we've come to love and know?
Nora Roberts/JD Robb doesn't write a bad book, but I do wonder why she felt the need to rush this out - because that's what it felt like: rushed and shorter than most. Also, this year, she's not putting out her usual Halloween offering in the antho that comes out November-ish, so I expected a longer, more complex tale, before next February's offering, Calculated In...

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's Roarke and Dallas, but...., 19 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Delusion in Death: 35 (Kindle Edition)
Bought the book, read it, put it on the shelf; three days later, I came to write this review and found the story had had so little impact that I had to flick through it again to get a reminder of the plot. The basic storyline is okay, but not as gripping as it should be; the overwhelming sense of urgency to find the criminal before another attack can occur, though spelled out in the text, isn't reflected in the writing. As has been said by others, the usual collections of characters are largely omitted, several appear only briefly, and then as cardboard cutouts of themselves. The usual banter and sharp exchanges are missing; even poor Galahad hardly gets a mention, except to be shooed away from the table. Where there are usually a couple of new characters with distinct personalities about whom you come to care, and about whom you hope to hear more in future books (although quite often you don't, anyway), that's not the case here. There's the usual, obligatory, sexual encounter between Roarke and Dallas, then there are Dallas' dreams, although, it would appear that, at last, Mira's almost persuaded her that she can conquer them....

After reading the mixed reviews, I haven't bought any of Nora Roberts' "Inn at Boonsboro" trilogy, although past trilogies have been excellent. I had a feeling that this latest series had been written purely as a way of advertising the family's own recently-launched hotel in Boonsboro, which is a slightly tacky marketing ploy, if true. With "Delusion in Death", it seems as though she knew it was time to write another J D Robb, but had too many other interesting things to do to devote her usual care and attention to both plot and characters, and the book has suffered as a consequence. I'll buy the next one, but, unless Ms Robb pulls her socks up and gets back to her usual high standards, it'll be the last.

Another JD Robb futuristic detective classic, if that isn't a characteristic. Futuristic science combined with good detective skills and at the bottom of it an age old motive. Great characters described in lovely detail. A glimpse into the future. Well worth reading all the JD Robb books, but then I would say that as I am an unashamed JD Robb fan!

A worthy thriller for the in death series in which Dallas and Roarke combine to arrest perpetrators of mass poisonings. Another tour Dr force for Nora Roberts writing as J D Robb.
