Format: Paperback
"Glory In Death" is the second book in J.D. Robb's futuristic mystery series. Set in New York City, 2058 CE, robotic drones and voice activated machines do menial work; there is a total ban on guns, (the police use lasers); major advances have been made in medicine, technology, and genetics; airbuses are the preferred vehicle for public transportation; tele-links replace telephones; and people travel to other planets, (Venus, Mars), for vacation and business. It's not quite a brave new world, but there are significant changes midway into the 21st century. The overpopulated world has more limited resources - real coffee is rare and way too expensive, as is beef and other fresh meat. Robb has not written a sci-fi series, however. Far enough into the future to make the storyline more interesting, today's world is still easily recognizable.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD is a tough cop who made Lieutenant before the age of 30. She, is also very vulnerable emotionally. Eve doesn't remember the early years of her life, but knows that she was sexually, physically and emotionally abused by her father, abandoned at age eight and left to the mercies of Children's Services. She met handsome businessman Roarke in book one, and the couple has become seriously involved. Roarke is a charismatic Irish billionaire, who wields considerable power worldwide, and has fallen hard for the first time in his life - for Eve.
Prosecuting Attorney Cicely Towers, a powerful, talented professional, is found dead, throat slashed, in a sleazy part of town. Eve is called in as primary to work the case. Then a second victim turns up. A beautiful, up-and-coming TV actress is found murdered, throat cut, on the rear patio of her apartment building. Eve is again called in -same MO, most probably the same killer.

This is the second in the Eve Dallas futuristic mysteries, following on from Naked in Death: In Death Series: Book 1. Lieutenant Dallas is a cop in a world that we recognise, but which has significant differences from current day America - guns are banned, there are service droids, flying vehicles, etc. However, the author cleverly makes the world one we identifity with easily, not least the fact that people are still unfortunately murdering each other.

Dallas is first called to the murder of Prosecuting Attorney Cicely Towers, her throat slashed and her body left in an undesirable part of the city - a part she had no reason to be in. Then a young actress is also violently murdered and it seems high profile women are being targeted. Dallas has to balance her job with her relationship with the incredibly wealthy businessman Rourke, who she met in the previous novel. As the investigation comes to a head, so does her need to either commit to Rourke or face her life alone.

This series is not great literature, by any means. However, it is well written, entertaining and with great characters. Dallas is a vulnerable, committed cop, and Rourke is, well, any woman's fantasy. Great fun, fast moving and excellent entertainment. The next book in the series is Immortal in Death: In Death Series: Book 3.

Format: Paperback
"Glory in death" is the second book in J. D. Robb's futuristic "In death series". Truth to be told, this book fulfils the promise I found in "Naked in death", and continues to engage me, and quite certainly many more readers. J.D. Robb is the name Nora Roberts uses for the "In death" series, a strange but effective blend of whodunnit, romance and action, set in the year 2058, in New York City.
The main character is a member of the NYPSD, Lieutenant Eve Dallas. "A decade as a cop had toughened her, given her a cold, and often cynical eye toward death and its many causes. It made scenes such as the one she viewed now, on a rainy night on a dark street nasty with litter, almost too usual. But still, she felt". Eve's business is murder, but she cannot help identifying with the victims of a new lunatic loose in her city, someone who preys on successful women.
Eve is also a person with a troubled past, who overcame extremely difficult circumstances and became an excellent good cop. She is also someone beginning a relationship with the most unlikely person for her: Roarke, a handsome billionaire with a shady past. In "Naked in death" we saw the beginnings of their relationship, and in "Glory in death" we are allowed to see its development. Of course, that happens amid of murder... Unfortunately for both Eve and Roarke, the victims are once again persons that Roarke knew, and that strains their relationship to the point that ending it will become a very real possibility.
On the whole, I highly recommend "Glory in death" as a worthy addition to the "In death" series. Enjoy it!!.

I'm so glad that I finally bit the bullet and started this series, I enjoyed the first book but I can already see the improvement as I read Glory in Death so I have incredibly high hopes for how wonderful it will be by the time I catch up with the latest releases.

I'm not sure how much time has past since the events in book one but Eve has healed from her injuries and her relationship with Roarke has grown closer than ever so I'm assuming it's at least weeks if not months later. Roarke is obviously crazy about her and he's willing to put his heart on the line and tell her how much he cares but Eve is still holding herself back and trying to keep him at a distance. She's still learning to trust in his feelings for her and she's definitely scared to admit how important he is to her, even to herself. I'll admit Eve's distance can be a little frustrating at times but it was totally understandable considering everything she has been through and I'm glad that their relationship development still feels realistic. They fell in love quickly so they still have to work out how to be a couple but they both seem willing to put the effort in. Roarke pushes Eve to admit her feelings but I never feel like he makes her go faster than she wants. He respects her needs and I think she needs someone who will keep pushing or she'd just stagnate in her comfort zone forever.

While we're on the subject of Roarke he is totally my kind of guy and he's already close to the top of my list of favourite top book boyfriends along with the likes of Curran and Barrons. He's what you want in an alpha hero, he's commanding, attentive, attractive and he loves Eve unconditionally. It doesn't hurt that he's a billionaire (and that I want to move into his library!) but I'd settle for the hot sex on tap LOL.
