Meanwhile, Eve Dallas the hard core, uncompromising futuristic homicide cop is reduced to being the small broken child found in a Dallas alleyway when she is confronted by Trudy, one of her more abusive foster care mothers. The opening chapters of this novel are chock full of promise; we will finally get to see a little more of the jigsaw that is Eve's past, see those murky in between years between the alleyway and the police academy and these are the sections that truly grip the reader.
If you're not moved by Eve's mini breakdown in the opening chapters then you have no soul. Roarke's much touted scene with Trudy as he deals with her blackmail in his usual uncompromising manner didn't live up to my expectations, nor did his argument with Eve immediately after; the first was nowhere near chilling enough (where did the avenging angel Roarke of Purity go?Read more ›
I love all of the J D Robb books, so I can't say that I'm not unbiased. But, I will say that this book is a fantastic reward to all of the fans out there who have been following these masterpieces.
I think that the book will be good on its own but, knowing the characters as well as I do by now, this book is cherishable. J D allows the new readers to join in but, to the long-term fans, the little in-jokes and the shorthand makes it a little bit more special.
The faith and belief in this world and its characters that's been created by Ms Robb for our reading pleasure is amazing. As usual, it's the little, everyday things that make you a true believer in how the world's going to look in 55 years or so!
With this book, you also now get to delve into Eve's past - and see how she comes through it again.
This is a fantastic series, with strong but different female characters that show, time and again, that we can find the strength from within to overcome. We may have setbacks, and we may stumble, but we can always dust ourselves down and get back up again.
Although, it would be easier if I had Rourke by MY side!
P.S. HUGH JACKMAN FOR ROURKE!
but nothing is that easy, and trudy lombard the foster mother, ends up dead. now she belongs to eve.
this is the 22nd in the "in death" series, and it follows on from the previous one - "origin in death", which was just brilliant, this book fails to pull it off for me.
It had to come about at sometime, some one from eve's past was bound to rear their ugly head, and as the villain goes, trudy is top of the pile. she's willing to got public with eve's childhood, and bring to the fore front the brutality, that she suffered at the hands of her father in exchange for two million dollars - chump change for the likes of roarke. she's brought along for the ride, her son bobby and his wife zana.
this book is really quite slow for a dallas novel, there's little excitement, just good old police work here.eve hardly ever gets hit, or gets involved in a car chase. and there's little petty squabbles between eve and summerset. this is mainly about eve coming to grips with her past and realising that she may not be alone, and although she hates this woman, she still doesn't want her dead. we don't see enough of the secondary charactors in this book, roarke is hardly in this book and the sexual magnatism that we love between these two isn't there this time. dr.Read more ›
