3.0 out of 5 stars Must-read for J. D. Robb fans, for all others I suggest to read some of the other books from the series, 4 Mar 2014
This review is from: Thankless in Death: 37 (Paperback)
"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.
Mostly that can be seen in the books' characters that are start repeating in each following book, changing their names only.
Maybe it would be good for author to take some time between writing the next book, to be able to deliver it at the level of quality that will match the first books in a series.

Nevertheless, it's still the must-read for J. D. Robb fans that they will certainly enjoy.
For all others thriller lovers, I suggest you to first read some of the other books from the series, because they'll provide a bit more excitement.
