Any J D Robb book is well worth reading, and this one is not exception (I've yet to come across a book in this series which is poorly written). My fave thing about the series is the characters - all of them (not just Eve and Roarke, the main pair) are well written, believable and *human*. I love the banter between Peabody and Eve, and I love the way new characters get added in gradually so that you find yourself able to keep track of a surprisingly large cast with no real difficulties because they've each been added gradually through a string of books.
