Product description

Book Description

A devilishly disturbing new case for Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her enigmatic husband Roarke - from the Sunday Times and number one New York Times bestseller J.D. Robb

From the Inside Flap

New York at night. A young woman stumbles out on to a busy street - right in front of Lieutenant Eve Dallas and husband Roarke. Her name is Daphne Strazza, and she has been brutally assaulted. Confused and traumatised, she manages to tell them one thing. Her attacker wore a devil's mask.

As Eve investigates this shocking case, she soon discovers a disturbing pattern. Someone is preying on wealthy couples, subjecting them to a cruel and terrifying ordeal. Worse still, the attacks are escalating in violence and depraved theatricality. Eve and her team are now in a race against time to find the man behind the mask - before he strikes again. But for Eve, this case in particular has unsettling echoes of her own troubled past...

This series has been great but seems to be tailing off and becoming more formulaic now, which is a real shame. I miss the snarky humour and the pacy plotting of earlier books in the series. At one point I was even getting (gasp) bored. This is a lengthy series and I suppose it is a lot to ask that the standards remain as high as in the beginning. I have to say I was disappointed with this latest offering which seemed to be a reworking of previous themes. When I think of earlier books with several riveting plotlines going at once I feel that this one is more of an extended short novel. Well I suppose it must be hard to maintain the interest when you are writing Number 44 in the series.

This is the second Eve Dallas (lead character) novel I have read this week. While I did really enjoy the book, I did find this one a little more challenging to read, merely because of the content. It deals with the very difficult subject of sexual violence, as well as murder and domestic violence, although J.D. Robb chooses not to describe these scenes as they are happening (for which I am very grateful).

One thing I do particularly like about this book is that it continues to show how much the character of Eve Dallas has changed and developed over the course of the series in the way that she copes with a situation which is a personal trigger for her. I am sure that there are, unfortunately, many readers out there who can relate in one way or another and would say that I think J.D. Robb has written the scenes in a way that treats the issues seriously and with sensitivity.

If you are a fan of crime novels - and particularly when they are set in the future (early 2060s) - and haven't tried J.D. Robb, why not? Seriously, if you're looking for a strong female character with depth - and a sexy husband - then you could do far worse than reading the Eve Dallas novels. Having read the latest two this week, I've had to start the series again. I couldn't help it - I'd missed the books, and need more than a two book fix

I'm always happy to meet up with the characters in this series, but found this one a bit plodding and repetitive. I will wait for the next one to go down in price or order it from the library next time (I hope there will be a next time).
Having read all of the series, I find myself emotionally invested in the characters and, perhaps ridiculously, feel they have been let down in this book.

Always look forward to new in death books and this was worth the wait. Loved all of this series but this is going into my top 10. Not as much action as usual but considering how invested you end up in the victims story all is forgiven. On a side note loving the crazy ties 😊

I would like to thank Netgalley and Little, Brown Book Group UK for an advance copy of Echoes In Death, the 44th police procedural to feature Lieutenant Eve Dallas, set in New York 2062.

Eve and her husband Roarke are returning from a charity do when they almost run over an injured, naked woman. They rush her to hospital, establish her identity and go to her house to find her husband dead, both are apparently victims of a home invasion. Further investigation reveals that the couple, Daphne and Anthony Strazza, are actually the third attack but the first murder.

I have not read many novels in this series and those I have were years ago so it feels like picking up a new series. It works mostly as a stand alone although I think it might have worked a bit better if I had had a better understanding of Eve's childhood which plays a part in the novel. Otherwise it is a fairly standard investigation into a serial rapist with a few bells and whistles to make it seem dystopian. Given the way technology has advanced in the last 25 years the setting is not particularly convincing.

The plot has a few twists and turns but most are fairly obvious and I guessed them quite early on, not so much the why but the who.

I also think some of the writing and dialogue is quite clunky.

I do, however, like the characters. Eve is smart, intuitive and kick ass and her partner Peabody gets some good lines.

Echoes In Death is a solid read with some good characters.

There was the OCD surgeon and his arm-candy wife - beaten, abused and raped - and that's just by the husband...

Then along comes the Devil and does it all again but additionally kills the surgeon.

Eve struggles emotionally as this case reminds her of her own early life with her father. But her relationship with Roarke is now strong enough for her to steady and find the killer.

There is emotional writing as you learn of the abusive relationship of the surgeon and his young wife and a reminder that rape within marriage is far from OK, and that just because he provides, he doesn't own and doesn't get to terrify, abuse and harm. This helps the story lift up above what has tended to become a bit formulaic.
