After what I thought of as a very poor showing in "Judgement in Death," I was so glad to see Eve back in full force in this one. The mystery was well-plotted, and ran smoothly throughout the book, and my favorite part, Eve and Roarke's relationship, really went somewhere in this one. Eve's concern for her husband's life, and her reaction to the loss of his people showed significant growth in her role as a wife, not just "Roarke's cop." Slowly, over twelve books, the two of them have manged to meld themsleves into a unit, seperate and distinct entities, but still a cohesive team.
Now that the two of them can work together, I expect great things of their detective work! With Roarke's gift with the shadier side, and Eve's dogged pursuit of law and order, they can stand for the living, and the dead.
Fabulous book, even if you haven't read the other eleven (Didn't that review say TWELVE? Well, they must be counting the novella in "Silent Night") books. I can't wait for the next "Seduction in Death," due out in September.
