RT Rating

The hottest detective in the next millenium is back with another explosive foray into murder and mayhem.

The death of a fellow policeman always hits a cop hard, and for homicide detective Eve Dallas, the passing of an old colleague due to a heart attack seems particularly wasteful. But did his heart just stop on its own, or did it have help?

Assigned by her superiors to investigate the matter quietly, Eve discovers that more than one person had reason to want the good sergeant out of the way. And when his granddaughter is brutally killed, it becomes clear that witchcraft is at the bottom of it all. But which kind? A wrong decision may cost Eve her life.

The always superb J.D. Robb delivers electrifying suspense and hot, hot passion in another spectacular sizzler. (May, 336 pp., $5.99)

Ceremony in Death

Submitted by Robin in PA on March 16, 2012 - 9:20pm.

Eve Dallas is ordered to investigate the death of a fellow officer. She is not allowed to tell Captain Feeney about her investigation, because the officer was his friend. This investigation leads Eve and Peabody to a Wiccan Coven and then to a satanic cult.

Though it was very easy to figure out who was the killer, the book was still very entertaining. We learn a little more about Peabody's background in this book. Her character is getting more and more interesting. We are also introduced to a teenager named Jamie who wants to be a cop when he grows up. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
