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?) and the latter scene felt out of character and as though Robb was inserting the argument for conflicts sake above plot needs.
I really wanted to like this one and I was disappointed I couldn't bring myself to love it. The high points for me were the recap on Selina's trial (Visions), some beautiful vulnerable Eve scenes including her present to Roarke for their memory box, and the priceless and hysterical scene when Eve and Peabody visit with Morris the coroner. Low points unfortunately are the lack of Peabody and Eve interaction overall- Peabody and McNabb are out of town to visit his parents in Scotland, some of the character cameos feel quite forced (Nadine and Mavis) and perhaps most damaging of all you can't quite bring yourself to care who did the Evil Trudy in because she's quite unredeemable so we immediately lose interest in solving the mystery there isn't that nice resolution feeling at the end of the case where you feel justice is done.
I think I felt most disappointed with this because of the potential it had to be so much more, yet it fell down on little touches that would have elevated it to a more reflective In Death snap shot. Still even slightly off her game this is still heads above most of the genre, and to reassure some readers it is in no way as sub par as Survivor (Worst!In Death! Ever!!!)
My advice is to wait for the traditional paperback and watch JD Robb make me eat my words with Born In Death.
