Indulgence in Death

First it was a limo driver shot through the neck with a crossbow. Then it was a high-priced escort found stabbed through the heart with a bayonet.

Random hits, thrill kills, murderers with a taste for the finer things in life-and death-are making NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas angry. And an angry Eve can be just as an efficient and dangerous predator as the killer.

As time runs out on another innocent victim's life, Eve's investigation will take her into the rarefied circle that her husband, Roarke, travels in-and into the perverted heart of madness...

The Eve Dallas series by JD Robb is my favorite romantic suspense series. I love everything about it, the characters, the setting and the way the author tells us the story. Then you must have figured out that I would be buying the latest immediately. And that I did.

It had everything! Romance, a short holiday in Ireland that was full of surprises for both Roarke and Eve; Sex, Roarke and Dallas are always hot; Humor, the banter between Dallas and Peabody always has me in stitches; the deepening of relationship between her friends, we're slowly getting to know Dallas' softer side, her feelings not only for her husband but also friends and her concern for their well being and safety.

And there's the crime, well, crimes. I thought the idea of killing the victims with "antique" weapons very interesting. I have to admit that I couldn't figure it out until I was about 80% done. The connections made it easily understood even if it was truly senseless and disturbing.

One thing though... I wanted more. I found the book short or maybe I just wanted more. I cannot wait for the next installment of Eve Dallas.
