Obsession in Death by J.D. Robb

I have have read all the books in the In Death series and this installment is just as good as the others. Just when you think you have the killer pegged, the twist in the plot leads you into a whole new train of thought. I know I will be reading this series for as long as Eve Dallas is around.

Obsession

Lieutenant Eve Dallas walks the thin line between love and hate in this fabulous 40th installment in the series.

Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and gotten a lot of media.  She–and her billionaire husband–are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, of gossip, of speculation.

But now Eve has become the object of one person’s obsession.  Someone who finds her extraordinary, and thinks about her every hour of every day.  Who believes the two of them have a special relationship.  Who would kill for her–again and again.

With a murderer reading meanings into her every move, handling this case will be a delicate–and dangerous–psychological dance.  And Eve knows that underneath the worship and admiration, a terrible threat lies in wait.  Because the beautiful lieutenant is not at all grateful for these bloody offerings from her “true and loyal friend.”  And in time, idols always fall.

Calculated in Death

J.D. Robb once again delivers a great mystery. I was gripped from the moment I started to read this to the very end. I started reading the In Death series last year. There is just enough action and suspense with a dash of romance to keep me interested. It reminds me slightly of the movie Bladerunner. Set in the future but with some things from the present included to keep it from being to imaginary. I have been a fan of Nora Roberts and also J.D. Robb and look forward to reading many more books by her in the future. I am anxiously awaiting the next book of the In Death series coming out this September!

Here’s what the book is about:

On Manhattan’s Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . .

The Perfect Hope

Book #3 of the Inn Boonsboro trilogy
Summary:

Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out—with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except apparently Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro…

As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be—except for in her love life. Her only interaction with the opposite sex has been sparring with the infuriating Ryder, who always seems to get under her skin. Still, no one can deny the electricity that crackles between them…a spark that ignited with a New Year’s Eve kiss.

While the Inn is running smoothly, thanks to Hope’s experience and unerring instincts, her big-city past is about to make an unwelcome—and embarrassing—appearance. Seeing Hope vulnerable stirs up Ryder’s emotions and makes him realize that while Hope may not be perfect, she just might be perfect for him…

The Next Always

Book 1/3

Summary:
The historic hotel in BoonsBoro, Maryland, has endured war and peace, changing hands, even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major facelift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect of the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was fifteen…

Celebrity in Death

Book 43

Summary:
Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K. T. Harris had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop. – Amazon.com

New York to Dallas

Book 41

Summary:

The number-one New York Times–bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying new case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas, one that will take her all the way to the city that gave her her name — and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood. When a monster named Isaac McQueen — taken down by Eve back in her uniform days — escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.
