RT Rating

Some authors break the rules very successfully; a very rare few define them. Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, is a spectacular innovator who always leaves her fans desperate for more.

It's time for Lieutenant Eve Dallas' second sally forth into twenty-first century crime as she begins the hunt for another brutal serial killer. With the discovery of the very first body, that of a prominent public prosecutor, it is clear that this is no ordinary murderer. One vicious swipe to the neck, and a woman lies dead.

What do the victims have in common? Well, they're all successful career women who work in the public eye. More disturbingly, they all have some kind of relationship with Roarke, Eve's mysterious zillionaire lover. At least this time she knows he's innocent-she is, after all, his alibi. But what does he really want out of their relationship?

As Eve struggles with conflicting personal and professional loyalties, the killer sets his eye on yet another highly visible professional...

Already a commanding presence on the mystery scene, J.D. Robb crafts a novel of explosive intensity and a crackling good yarn to boot. (Dec., 320 pp., $5.99)

Glory in Death

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 1, 2011 - 8:11pm.

Homicide Detective Eve Dallas is investigating the murders of two women in prominent social positions. Both were found with their throat slashed.  In each crime a souvenir was taken.  There is a long list of suspects for these murders, including Eve's own lover, Roarke. 

This is the second book in this series and it's a good one.  Along with the mystery, we see the progression of Roarke and Eve's relationship.  Roarke is ready to move forward with their relationship, but Eve isn't ready yet.  We also see the introduction of Peabody in this book.  My rating:  5 Stars.
