Glory in Death is second in the J.D Robb In Death series. This takes up where the first novel leaves off. This follows Detective Eve Dallas as she is called to solve another case. Here is the back cover: It is 2058, New York City. In a world where technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there’s only one place to hide a crime of passion-in the heart. Even in the mid-twenty-first century, during a time when genetic testing usually weeds out any violent hereditary traits before they can take over, murder still happens. The first victim is found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second is murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects-including her own lover, Roarke.
I thought this novel was much better than the first in the series. (Granted the first talk more about sex crime, something I am not comfortable with). This novel was very interesting to read. I had to catch myself trying to figure out who the killer is rather than reading line for line. Sometimes I would think it over and then remember that I had read the same line a few times. The plot line was very interesting to read and follow. I was amazed at this writing style especially since it is about crime and drama where the reader does not know the killer until it is revealed.
As this is the second novel the relationship between Roarke and Eve is already going. As a normal couple set in a futuristic setting they are bound to have problems working out the kinks of their relationship. I enjoyed reading and falling in love with them. The sex scenes were great and really steamy. I might have needed a fan at some point as you will too. How can a reader not fall in lust with Roarke? *sigh* This novel had more of the romantic connection and the problems of falling in love with the other and hoping they don’t break your heart.
I would rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars. It was a great read and I am excited to start the third book in the series Immortal in Death. I really wanna see the progression of Roarke and Eve’s relationship. If you have enjoyed the first two of the series, than keep reading. If you have not enjoyed these novels, there are many other novels that I have reviewed that I welcome you to look over. You might find on you enjoy. Happy readings!
