Reviews

Lt. Eve Dallas specializes in serial killers, and her newest case has her tracking a devotee of them. He imitates Jack the Ripper and slashes up a licensed companion, as prostitutes are known in the mid-21st century. Next he uses the techniques of the Boston Strangler to kill a grandmother. At each murder scene he leaves a note for Eve on expensive, unrecycled paper, illegal to own in the United States. Distractions and humor are provided by Officer Peabody, who is studying for the imminent detective examination and anxious about her evolving romance with McNab. Susan Ericksen has read several of Robb's (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) futuristic crime novels and is adept at portraying the colorful people who surround Eve. The uncertain, emotional Peabody is a fine foil for Eve's confident strength. Ericksen's pacing, pitch, and accents make each character come alive. Recommended for popular collections.-Juleigh Muirhead Clark, John D. Rockefeller Jr. Lib., Colonial Williamsburg Fdn., VA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

All of the In Death series from Nora Roberts (writing as J D Robb here) are fabulous and this installment is no exception. Carefully crafted to keep you reading, this is a great read that I really couldn't put down. If possible it is best to read this series in order, but since there is quite a few books in it now, it wouldnt really be a problem to read them out of order.
