How tired are you of reading In Death reviews? (I’m getting a little tired too). Don’t worry I have almost caught up to the end of the books published. I only have one more book to read, Concealed in Death(which was just published). After that book I am going to start going through my other novels I have collecting dust on my shelf. As for Thankless in Death, here is a brief background provided by Goodreads: Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke’s big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.
Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadn’t made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped him—but they didn’t think he was capable of this.
Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but taking a liking to it. With the money he’s stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry’s going to strike next.
This novel pissed my off just because the killer was soooo stupid, yet he continually evaded Eve and the rest of the cops. Seriously? This kid was an idiot, there was so much evidence that they didn’t need a confession. Anyways, that was the one thing that really pissed me off. The killer kept getting away, or they would miss his by a few hours. The rest of the novel I enjoyed. I especially enjoyed seeing Roarke’s family again. (It’s Thanksgiving). I also enjoyed seeing Nixie and the Deblass family again. It’s been a long time since we have seen that name. I also enjoyed finally seeing Eve and Roarke get an award for all they have done for the department. That was cool to read. There was one more thing that happen that I loved but I don’t want to give it away. You will just have to read it and find out.
As for the sex… Loved it. Roarke is the best guy in the literary world. The sex scenes between Roarke and Eve are filled with love, passion, and hot, hot, hot! Their romance sizzles. They never disappoint me. There is always love and emotion in the sex, not just the physical but the emotional as well. That’s what makes it worth reading.
Overall, I give this novel 4 out 5. It was not the greatest, but I still enjoyed it. I have one more book in the In Death series to read after this and then I have a few books I want to read including Lori Foster’s Dash Of Peril, and Shelly Laurenston’s Bite Me. Super excited to read both.
