Two brief visions of Summerset - not even sure he spoke two full sentences. Peabody had a big role, but not a word from McNabb. Literally. Some of the cops, and Feeney, made brief appearances, but none of them seemed to have anything to sat. Yes, Charles and Louise were there, and a brief consult with Mira, but none of the other friends and/or family that have made this such an enjoyable series.
I was willing to pay $15 for my ebook, something I do for the dozen or so authors whose work I revere. I don't think I am going to do that for Book 51. I will wait until the price drops.
An amazing milestone from a three book beginning!
Thank you Ms Roberts, for a couple in Eve and Roarke, who shift the way we read police procedurals. Thank you for a cast of characters who are as trustworthy in their actions as they are good at their fictional jobs. It is super easy to take great writing for granted, but we really shouldn’t. Coming back to the well fifty times and bringing back something new and fresh each time takes skill and a love of what one does. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
When someone dies of a fast acting and fast dissipating toxin, - one that was so specific in its action that even ten feet of distance would have left anyone else unaffected - Eve Dallas has to really dig for motive. The victim, Kent Abner, is a beloved pediatrician and an amazing human being with no real grudges against him. But someone wanted him dead, specifically and particularly. The why is what bugs Eve the most; and finding out why, shapes her understanding of who.

The investigation covers a part of society to which Robb returns often, and her battles with lawyers, arrogant spoilt brats, and those who consider themselves above the law are well up to standard. No spoilers, but you really have to read Peabody's response to someone who pours scorn on Dallas, state school attendees, and Free-Agers - brilliant!
While I can see no value in the sex passages between Dallas and Roarke - possibly a hangover from the days of M&B and the requirement for sex every so many pages - there are some genuinely moving moments between the two of them, and I'm living in hope that Eve's finally getting rid of some of the unnecessary baggage from her past, which, at one stage in the series, became almost a cut-and-paste in every book.
Golden in Death is worth every penny, and now I'll have to wait at least another 6 months for the next one to appear.
It was lacking in the normal sparkling dialogue between the characters and any interest in the plot didn't start until a third of the way through and then it was nothing special.
I have given this book 4 starts because I am a great fan of Nora Roberts, but had it been written by another author I would probably given it 2 stars.
Sorry Nora but not one of your best.
One minor thing: maybe not everyone would say/think 'because boss' or similar - some would use a complete phrase. Peabody might if Dallas does, but Grange too? Other than that I loved it. Can't wait for the next one: I always pre-order then get a nice surprise when it appears in my library.
