Still lots of gore and violence but a real human element to this one that I found most endearing.
have already started the next one.
This continues the story of Eve and Roarke, as Eve has to solve a murder that has taken place in a bar owned by, as usual, her husband. However the death is linked to a figure from the underworld who once had dealings with Roarke and wants him dead. Roarke does not respond well to Eve's attempts to protect him, first by lying to him and then by pulling her gun on him! As usual, the two have to solve the problems that arise in their personal relationship just as much as the crime and the journey towards the achievement of both solutions is as entertaining as ever.
On another front, Eve has to deal with an old lover who now works for Internal Affairs and who wants her to close the case without making any fuss. Of course, this does not bode well with our detective who instead of stopping the investigation intensifies her efforts for getting at the truth. The fact that this old acquaintance is still in love with Eve does not simplify things in the least. The technique used by Robb of introducing elements from the main character's past gives in my opinion a very special charm to the series. In this case, there is another character that has is connected to Roarke's past and who has a bone to grind with the billionaire. Ricker is a dangerous man that is in trouble with the law after a drug bust jeopardized his freedom and who had dealings with Roarke before Eve's husband decided to "clean up". Eve's investigation leads her to Ricker, and right from the moment they lay eyes on each other these two characters clash and we know we are in for an intense battle between them.Read more ›
Well, he does own half the planet!
I thought the crime and mystery aspect was a great improvement over the last one. There's nothing Eve won't do to avenge the dead, and it hits even harder when it's one of their own. The connection to Roarke and the re-emergence of a contact from his less than spotless past is worrying for Eve. In trying to protect Roarke, a wall of tension is built between them which leads to some really intense scenes that were very satisfying to read.
To break the tension...Well, what does a girl do when her husband is being a butthead? Why, go and get rip roaring drunk with her oldest friend of course!
Now, I think I've mentioned before how good the audiobook narrator, Susan Ericksen, is for this series. She's made me laugh many a time with her interpretations of Robb's characters. But drunk Mavis has to go down as the ultimate achievement in audio narration. Ever. Somebody hand that woman an award, please. It was just...ah, so funny.
So, all together a great instalment with some graphic scenes of violence, some tense emotional moments, and a drunk Mavis as the proverbial cherry on the top. How does that sound?
Sounds like 5 stars to me.
