Same Old Thing...
Reviewed in the United States on March 4, 2013
I love Eve Dallas and all the other characters in the "In Death" series, but as I read this book I honestly felt like there was nothing different except the crime.
Eve was doing whatever she was doing and gets a call that there's a new crime.
Peabody drops whatever she's doing and shows up as well.
Roarke uses his electronics to hunt for info and is of course brought into the case as an expert civilian consultant...again.
The fat cat weaves in and out of everyone's legs.
Eve searches for insults to hurl at Sommerset.
Eve has nightmares.
Eve has Dr. Mira do crime profiling and also makes time for her personal life to discuss and is given tea she doesn't want.
McNab is in weird clothes as usual and they're described as usual.
While working on clues the killer strikes again.
Eve and Roarke make love.
A big deal is made about the police stations bad coffee.
With so many of these books on the market, Ms. Roberts (J.D. Robb) really needs to shake it up now. Someone needs an unexpected pregnancy.
A main character needs to get very ill or die.
Doesnt matter WHAT changes. What matters is that SOMETHING changes. This book was boring. There were even mistakes and typos not caught by the pros.
There's no denying Ms. Roberts (Writing as J.D. Robb) is a great writer because she is. She's also one of my favorites but she's stuck in a rut.
New York To Dallas was much, much better.
Now that everyone is back in N.Y. and back at their regular jobs, something needs to change and in a big way if this series is to continue.
There are too many of these books to only have had a small amount of time go by. (I think a year or two at the most)
Simply put, this was boring and did nothing for me in the way of interest.
Shake up this series!!!
