A great book that brought us an exciting quest for justice.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas does it again: catching a case, going through the clues meticulously, and narrowing down the possible places the killer could have gone to ground between each murder. And she does all of this with the holiday rapidly closing in and Roarke's extended family coming over to celebrate.
I mean, I knew she would find Jerry Reinhold in the end, and perhaps in time to eat some turkey with the in-laws too, but I always find the process of going through the clues to catch the suspect to be the biggest draw of these books. That and the hijinks she and Peabody get into during their searches. And there is as much laughter with this series as there is pain when she has to deal with the death. Roarke's presence truly helps in that regard because she has someone to help her outside of her colleagues at work and that he's her husband is an added bonus. He well and truly understands her and doesn't hold her back, even knowing how dangerous her job can be. And he also shoulders some of her work for his own when she runs herself ragged.
Kudos to Nora Roberts, aka JD Robb, for another excellent addition to her In Death series. I'm addicted to it and can't wait to start the next installment.
