Amazon Review

New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as JD Robb, continues her prolific string of hits with Seduction in Death, her latest instalment in the "in Death" series of futuristic thrillers. These star hard-boiled detective Eve Dallas and a quirky cast of characters, including Eve's husband Roarke, who owns most of Manhattan and can be relied upon to bring all his considerable resources to bear to help his wife solve the case whether she wants him to or not, and Peabody, Eve's uptight assistant, who has an off again-on again thing going with the irreverent officer McNab. This time Eve is on the trail of a serial killer--or maybe killers--who stalks young women looking for love in online poetry chat rooms. Once a romantic date has been arranged, the murderer sets the scene with roses, champagne and candlelight, then serves his unsuspecting victims a lethal combination of date-rape drugs that takes them to the height of pleasure and too far beyond. But this killer is really clever, altering his look to become each victim's dream date.

Detective Dallas is on the case, chasing an anonymous psychopath with a twisted taste in romance. But Eve seems a little more fragile this time around, still plagued by the nightmare of childhood abuse. Is retirement from the business of crime-solving in the near future for detective Dallas? Robb has found a winning formula in the genre, so hopefully we'll see a lot more of peppery Eve Dallas. --Alison Trinkle, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Gut-searing emotional drama David Baldacci Anchored by terrific characters, sudden twists that spin the whole narrative on a dime, and a thrills-to-chills ratio that will raise hairs of even the most jaded reader, the J.D. Robb books are the epitome of great popular fiction Dennis Lehane J.D. Robb's novels are can't miss pleasures Harlan Coben Whether she writes as J.D. Robb or under her own name, I love Nora Roberts. She is a woman who just doesn't know how to tell a bad story Stephen King This series gets better with every book Publishers Weekly The most popular novelist on planet earth Washington Post A perfect balance of suspense, futuristic police procedural and steamy romance...truly fine entertainment... sure to leave you hungering for more Publishers Weekly Great fun Cosmopolitan

The 13th book in the In Death series by J D Robb is a great, fast paced crime thriller like the preceding 12 books. I am totally hooked and am reading one after the other. This futuristic cop series is riveting and I just have to read the next one straight after I finish each one. As a huge fan of all Nora Roberts books why would I not love her alter-ego, J D Robb? She is the best author in the world, in my humble opinion and all her books can be read and re-read many times, as I have and will continue to do so.

I really love this book. I can easily say that this is the best yet of all the in-death series and all of them are very good! I just can't put the book down once I started reading it. The story line is great, more stories on other side characters like Charles Monroe, Dr. Dimatto, Peabody and MacNab's romance. What I like about all the in death series is that as the books gets along, the writer keeps us in touch with all the characters and not only on Eve and Roarke (although their romance are great too!), hence the books gets better with each new series. I just can't wait for the next one to be out.

J.D. Robb has clearly found a winning formula: a futuristic setting, a strong female main character, a sexy and wealthy husband who allows the author to introduce various romantic scenes, cases that involve crafty and dangerous killers and an interesting set of supporting characters. On top of all that, the author has been able to find enough variation around this pattern to keep readers guessing in each novel as to which way the plot will turn and how the characters' stories will further develop.
At the beginning of the book we find that Lieutenant Eve Dallas is once again going through a tough patch with her nightmares. These revolve around the abuse suffered in the hands of her own father and the events that finally led her to kill the monster. She usually has these nightmares when her husband, Roarke, is not there sleeping with her. In this case, he is in Ireland going through a difficult time himself, because a friend that was part of a ploy to commit a robbery against Roarke ended up getting killed by his associates when he changed his mind and switched sides. We usually do not find a troubled Roarke (at least not at the beginning of the story), so this is a welcomed break from the ordinary. On the other side however, we have been presented with Eve's nightmares multiple times, and even though I understand the need to give the new readers information about the past, this is starting to be a little repetitive. Of course, this is not a huge drawback to the quality of the book, but it would be nicer if the author finds another way to share this tidbit of information.
Eve's problems become even worse when she is summoned to the scene of a death that at first sight looks like a suicide, but quickly proves to be a murder.

I'm going to assume that if you're reading a review for book 13 in a series, you already are familiar with it and therefore don't need me to go into what these books are about--just whether or not this one was any good.

It was good. Very good, actually.

We got some progress on the McNab-Peabody situation (two more stubborn people I have never met), and of course Charles as well.

We got some nice scenes with Eve and Roarke. I love how much he worries about Eve when she runs herself into the ground. It's been about a year in book-time since the pair wed now. They are such a great couple.

We got an interesting method of delivery for the crime in that we had knowledge of the killer's games and even their identity way before Eve did. That was different but good. Even though being in a sicko's mind like that is never a fun place to be.

As always, I love reading about how the future technology either helps or hinders Eve in her investigations. In this instance, it was the use of facial putty, synthetic hair and other futuristic enhancements that enabled characters to look totally different and it was very enjoyable to read. ('cause you all know how much Eve loves visits from Trina the beauty technician, right?)

It was another great Audio production as well, with one caveat-- Susan Ericksen seems to have totally changed how she does Peabody's voice. It used to sound quite nasally and, well, a bit odd, but now she sounds just like Eve which makes it difficult when they are conversing since Robb isn't one for using he said/she said in her rapid-fire dialogue sections. Are you trying to confuse me, Susan, because I will not be bamboozled, dognammit!

Ahem. Sorry.

4 Stars!
