This is book 9 in the In Death series by J. D. Robb. Here is a bit about the background on this novel: New York cop Eve Dallas returns to face her most ingenious foe–a “secret admirer” who taunts her with letters… and kills without mercy.
An unknown bomber is stalking New York City. He is sending Eve Dallas taunting letters promising to wreak mass terror and destruction among the “corrupt masses.” And when his cruel web of deceit and destruction threatens those she cares for most, Eve fights back. It’s her city … it’s her job… and it’s hitting too close to home. Now, in a race against a ticking clock, Eve must make the pieces fit–before the city falls.
This novel was interesting to read simply because it was different from the other novels. So far in this series J.D. Robb has not written about a terrorist organization and this book is her first. It was interesting to read because it really hits home about mass murder and fighting for a cause that is bad. This novel was really hard for me to read because there is a lot of deaths and Eve must fight past her own emotions to deal with the destruction. I loved one line in the book that says, even though Eve can’t stop ever murder or death she will be damn sure she will find justice for them. I love Eve as a character. She is so strong and cares of people even though it is not always shown. I enjoyed reading about Peabody’s brother. To see what new-agers are about really gave me a tickle. I love the addition of certain characters and the growth and interactions they have on the main characters.
The sex scenes in this novel were great! I enjoyed reading about the interactions of Peabody and McNab as well as Roarke and Eve. There was much more emotions raging between the group of people. I felt that the emotional connection was great to read and really showcased the progression of relationships.
