I thought her Eve Duncan series was safe. Regrettably, this book (Vendetta in Death) is exhibiting the same “sickness”.
If Robert’s/Robb’s books weren’t SO expensive, I would not care. But, if she expects her readers to pay such high book prices, we readers demand the writing brilliance that we know she can provide.
Shame on you, Ms. Roberts/Robb. We deserve your best and you embarrass yourself with this dime-store veneer writing and your spiral into greed.
I don't mind a short book, except when it retails near $30. I got it for $20 and still feel that was too much for the little I got. I guess it's time to stop preordering this series and hit the library from now on. Robb needs to shake the series up, or give it a rest for a while if she's gotten bored.
No mystery. No suspense. Not worth the cover charge.

I always find it interesting when Eve has a good idea who the killer is but isn't sure how to prove it. She has spot on instincts but that isn't enough to get warrants unless she has a very good reason for her suspicions and that is a sticking point in this case. She always has a particularly hard time of it when the victims she's standing for are themselves abusers but we really get to see how far she's come in this book because it doesn't affect her as much as it would have in the past. Yes it brings back memories but she's more open with both Roarke and Mira about these things now and is therefore able to work through them far quicker than she did earlier in the series.
This book has appearances from all our favourite characters and I particularly like the friendship that is developing between Roarke and Nadine's new rockstar boyfriend. Roarke actually had a lot of stand out moments in this book and there was a lot of humour, especially surrounding an announcement made by Mavis. It's good to see changes within the side character's lives and I really hope we're going to see more of Peabody and McNab's relationship soon, I want them to take the next step or even to just see more of them outside a work environment. I'm still loving this series though and I'm not quite sure what I'll do with myself when I finish the next book and have to start waiting for more to be published.
The first kill by Lady Justice is brutal and the victim a horrid excuse for a human being. It would have been nice if he had lived so Eve could have sucker punched him.
Did I enjoy getting a fix of Eve and Roarke - oh yeah. But there wasn't enough of the two together for me. Plus I wanted more snark from Eve and the banter between her and Peabody to pop off the page more than it did.
Fingers are already twitching to pick up the next book in the series - so very easy to binge on these.
Potential Triggers: Serial rape. Torture occurs and references to domestic violence.
I've started re-reading the earlier books and the difference between them and the last few is amazing. Maybe some of the other reviewers are correct. J D Robb is not writing them now.
Saying all that as a murder book it was good, and I enjoyed it. it just wasn't a Dallas book.
