Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

At 27 books and counting, Nora Roberts is more prolific under her Robb pseudonym than most authors manage in a single career. Yet the latest in her not-so-near-future detective series featuring New York Police Det. Eve Dallas offers a satisfyingly novel mélange of suspense, sex, forensics and heroics. It's 2060, and the serial killer nicknamed The Groom is back in town after an absence of nine years, resuming his horrific run of kidnapping, torturing and killing young women. Dallas, who served as a detective in the frustrating first investigation, assumes lead role in this one. This time, not only do the killer's chosen victims have ties to Dallas's husband, Roarke, but Dallas herself may be the killer's ultimate target. Swiftly paced, the story cuts frequently from the investigation to the killer's progress with his victims. Dallas works to outplan, outfight and outsmart the killer; to keep her handsome, rich husband happy; and to be ready for the next round after a good night's sleep. Robb's latest is bound to please Dallas fans. (Nov.)

"All the elements of a terrific police procedural coupled with gut-searing emotional drama and in-your-face characters that only a writer of Nora Roberts' caliber can deliver." -- David Baldacci

"Anchored by terrific characters, sudden twists that spin the whole narrative on a dime, and a thrills-to-chills ratio that will raise the neck hairs of even the most jaded reader, the J.D. Robb books are the epitome of great popular fiction." -- Dennis Lehane

"Compelling characters, absorbing mysteries and a wonderful sense of both time and place, J.D. Robb's 'In Death' novels are can't-miss pleasures." -- Harlan Coben

"Creation in Death is a witty, dark, page-turning tale of futuristic crime fighting. Raymond Chandler meets Blade Runner meets Silence of the Lambs. The techno-toys may change, but evil never does." -- Jonathan Kellerman

"Whether she writes as J.D. Robb or under her own name, I love Nora Roberts. She is a woman who just doesn't know how to tell a bad story. Creation in Death is an authentic page turner, with Eve Dallas--tough as nails and still sexy as hell--pitted against one of the year's creepiest super villains. If you haven't read Robb, this is a great place to start." -- Stephen King --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I love this series so much and couldn't wait to receive the latest. Unfortunately, I found it disappointing. It was so serious -- no fun scenes, no really great stand-out scenes, especially with Roarke. It seemed formulistic and for the first time, I thought Roarke really became a lapdog to Eve's demands. Also, the crime-solving details got very tedious and then --boom, it's over. This is the first of the 25 that hasn't wowed me. That said, I can't wait for the next one!

Again, Robb brings back the characters we love with a new crime to solve. Roarke works more hands-on this time, getting a real picture of what cops do. He'd never been this 'in' it before, and it was great to see him there, and get his 'feel' for what cops go through during an intense investigation.

Arguments and fights between some of the more active characters make them appear more human and all the more believable.

The plot was good, not so many twists but you get even more information and more of a feel about the perpetrator in this one, a better sense of the why. Although it wasn't complicated, I really loved how it all came down. Ariel was perfectly added as the last 'victim', and I'm glad Eve connected with her on some level. Although only a 'temporary character', I really hope to see her again in a future novel.

What Eve asked Roarke to do - stepping 'over the line' as she did, I wholeheartedly agreed with and would have done the same in her position. I won't go into further detail as it would spoil the ending, but I was more than glad of it. You'll understand what I mean when you read it.

Format: Hardcover
I have to agree with the previous reviewer not one of the better books. But Nora's 'not so great' is still good I think though she is so good that her fans expect a superb book each time and that's just not possible. This book was ok but to be perfectly honest nothing really stood out. The argument between Feeney & Eve was so lame I was like what is the fuss. Roarke and Eve were back on track lovey dovey and some of the lines Nora gives them makes me roll my eyes P-L-E-A-S-E only in books and the movies do people talk like this but oh well.....I wonder who ran Roarkes business while he was in the 'war room' with Eve & crew?? We had the obligatory Mavis visit of course, Nadine getting the inside scoop which again is odd I mean why isn't this causing a big flack with other press people it's pure favoritism.
I do feel that one book is usually quite great then the next blah and this has been going on for awhile now and I'm moreorless expected this one not to be that great since the last one was quite good.
I do feel, and I have been a enormous fan of the death books, that they are getting stale. Cause we know about Eve's background and Roarkes so that aspect is done with so all is left is the murder cases with little personal bits in there so maybe it's only natural that this would be the way it is cause after all she's been writing this series since 1995 even though the actual span of the books is about 2 years which I never understood but that's how it is.
