Review

Eve Dallas - tough as nails and still sexy as hell (Stephen King)

Great fun (Cosmopolitan)

The epitome of popular fiction (Dennis Lehane)

This series gets better with ever book (Publishers Weekly)

Gut-searing emotional drama (David Baldacci)

Gripping and adrenaline-fuelled (Star Magazine)

Curious corpses, tangled twists and one sizzling sleuth (Kathy Reichs)

Sheer entertainment (Guardian)

Witty, dark, page-turning (Jonathan Kellerman)

Extraordinary . . . after so many books, these characters feel like family, which makes their adventures resonate more (RT Book Reviews)

The twists and turns of plot, the horror and gore of the crime, the methodical work of crime scene investigation and the psychological suspense, all sparked by the vengeful actions of a killer bent on mass carnage, will have Robb's legions of readers in raptures and will no doubt bring a new crop of fans on board (Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin)

Book Description

The new Eve Dallas thriller in which Eve comes up against a terrifying and seemingly untouchable mass murderer

Delusion In Death has everything you would expect from J.D.Robb; drama, humour, emotion, excellent writing and a fabulous storyline.
I have read every 'In Death' book and they never fail to entertain and intrigue.

If you haven't already read any of the "in death" series then don't start here - you will not understand what is going on as the author doesn't introduce you to the characters or fill you in on much background. The first book in the series in Naked in Death: In Death Series: Book 1 which is the place to start. If you have already read some of the books then you will probably be OK with this one but there are quite a lot of references to New York To Dallas (In Death Series) so it is probably useful if you have read that one.

For those of us who have read (and own) the whole series this book reintroduces us to a world we already know and characters with whom we are already familiar. Many of the familiar characters are not present in the book or only get a brief appearance-in which is OK by me as I sometimes feel that some of the novels are contrived to include as many existing characters as possible. I was disappointed, however, in that (with the exception of Somerset) we don't really get to know any of the familiar set of people any better.

Familiarity is really the name of the game with this book. The plot is very similar to several which have been used before. The motive of the killer turns out to be quite commonplace and there are some recurring themes including Eve's nightmares (am I the only one getting a bit tired of these ?). Roarke gets heavily involved as usual and, as has happened before, the murderer is revealed about half way through and the rest of the book is about making it stick (although there is an unexpected twist near the end).

Nora Roberts/JD Robb doesn't write a bad book, but I do wonder why she felt the need to rush this out - because that's what it felt like: rushed and shorter than most. Also, this year, she's not putting out her usual Halloween offering in the antho that comes out November-ish, so I expected a longer, more complex tale, before next February's offering, Calculated In Death.

This one in fact seemed a bit similar to another ID tale, with an hallucinogen/artificial airborne weapon, but still, I expected a great tale. I got a decent one, even though I had to go back and re-read a couple of pages when the baddie's identity was revealed, as I hadn't clocked how she'd drawn her conclusion. Yes, I am guilty of a touch of skim-reading, for the first time EVER, with an Eve Dallas tale, and I nearly missed it.

From there on, it was typical Eve - goad the suspect into giving you what you want, using mind games, but not, this time, a chance for the bad guy to thrown a punch first, so she could take him down, allegedly in self-defence. And yes, we've seen the bigging-up of the ego scenario more than once, and this time round, it was a bit tiring. However, that wasn't what made me rate this the lowest of any Eve Dallas tale I've read.

For me, the series isn't just about Eve and Roarke, but also about the myriad characters that form part of her posse that I've come to love, and in recent tales - discounting New York To Dallas, which they couldn't be in - they've all done a disappearing act. I mean, when was the last time that we interacted with Charles and Louise, or Mavis and family? What about hearing more about Morris and how he's getting on after the death of his lover? What about McNab? There were maybe 2 mentions of him, but he didn't even make an appearance.

I read a couple of reviews before my book arrived. Having bought the whole series I was eagerly awaiting this one and wondered what was coming as a couple of people seemed to be disappointed with it. It certainly isn't her best (for me that was Survivor in Death)but well away from her worst (in my case the last one out Celebrity in Death, didn't enjoy that one at all). Would certainly recommend for fans, yes there is less "friend and family stuff" but its nice one in a while for the actual police work to be the main event! Having said that, hope the friends and family are back in the next one! Better insight into Summerset although it was a shame he wasn't mentioned at the end when everything had come out. Next one's apparently due out in February so looking forward to that having read the synopsis. On the whole, its a decent enough read, although it does lack the "can't put it down" element of the earlier books.
