Yes, Divided in Death is different from the other books in the series. You have your typical Eve driven investigation of murder with someone she or Roarke knows and need to prove innocent. You've got your people who misunderstand Eve's ways which hurts her but she remains silent. McNab, Peabody, Mavis, Feeney and Trueheart are all there, which makes for a nice continuity.
This time we've got spies and government intrigue at the heart of the murder case. But Divided is more personal than the other books. Eve and Roarke have always had heated arguments but have been solid with their marriage because of their love for each other. This time, they each struggle with something inherent to their make up and it's not so easily moved past.
A great part of the book, contrasted with the others, Eve and Roarke cannot find their way to each other, they are estranged by their different reactions to some information that comes to light about Eve's past. It's this struggle which makes the heart of the book so compelling because you want them to make it, they are the other half of the other but at the same time, some things can't just be moved past.
I won't give spoilers but I found this intensely personal approach a nice refreshing change from the other books and I thought Robb wrote it well and threaded it into the mystery in such a way that you don't get bored with one or the other.
There were a few scenes in the book where I must admit I did get a bit weepy. Eve, without Roarke's strength, without his love and support is very empty and sad and it reminds you of who she was in Naked In Death and how far she's come.
A very worthy read for those who've followed the series and the growth of the characters and the marriage between these two unlikely lovers.

This, to me, is J.D. Robb better than ever. Finally, she writes a mystery in which Roarke's involvement is intrinsic to the plot - he's not just shoving his way into Eve's job. Their conflict was so well-drawn and realistic, it amazed me. I was very impressed with its resolution, in how far Eve and Roarke have come to understand each other. I do have to disagree with the reviewer who said that Eve's response "emasculated" Roarke - she was the wounded party, it's for her to decide if and how she wants to retaliate. If he just jumped in, he would take away her power even more. On a side note, it's a real pleasure to read about people with childhood issues who have to continue to work through them - so often, True Love comes along, and that's just the end of it.
The mystery was good and entertaining, with several amusing, well-placed, political "slams." It's also delightful to see Peabody as a detective and to get a closer look at Caro. I am looking forward to Visions in Death and to when this comes out in paperback.

Format: Hardcover
We've read the entire 18-book "Robb" series and generally enjoy all the stories immensely. As usually happens with long-running characters, we've come to feel intimate with both the leading couple, NYPD Homicide Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke, as well as a fine supporting cast of cops Peabody, Feeney, and McNab (among others); quirky friend Mavis; and annoying "houseman"/valet Summerset. The writing and plot crafting skills of Nora Roberts (posing herein as JD Robb) created absolute powerhouses in her recent novels "Portrait" and "Purity in Death", leaving us emotionally stimulated and intellectually entertained. But our hope for more at that level was not to be fulfilled in "Divided".
The plot centers around an artist who is caught cheating by his wife, Reva, a security specialist who works at one of Roarke's firms. Reva is found at the scene of her husband and his lover's murder, but it seems immediately to be a frame; and a subsequent murder or two confirms that suspicion. The cop team pretty much takes residence at the Roarke mansion, fearing that security is so sensitive an issue on this case that working out of Police HQ is ill advised. The investigation soon embroils the Homeland Security agency, which is an interesting ploy that allows Robb to comment from the setting of the book at future year 2059 on the "history" and practices of that government entity. A wrinkle about Eve's own troubled past with an abusive father surfaces during the investigation that causes a huge riff between herself and Roarke -- and the resolution of that strain on their relationship is a strong sub-plot to the mystery.

Format: Hardcover
Reva is a woman out for revenge, but murder was never in her plan. When she burst into her cheating husband and best friend's love nest, her rage turns to shock; they are lying entwined in each others arms, covered in blood. She calls her mother next, who happens to work for Roarke, who is conveniently married to the best homicide cop in the twenty first century, Eve Dallas. It only takes Eve a short time to know Reva is innocent, but proving that will be a challenge. As she works towards the truth, Eve will face her own demons once more, and a bit more of her shrouded past will emerge. In the end, Eve's future will be in more jeopardy than ever, as she faces a deadly enemy who is not afraid to kill.
***** Some series peter out and become tired. Eve and Roarke have yet to do so. From fresh and funny to intensely passionate or chillingly dangerous, the emotions run the gamut. Both major and minor characters are well developed. Even if you dislike futuristics, this series is worth making an exception. In particular, "Divided in Death" has one of the best Eve/Roarke scenes of all the books, which is saying a lot. *****
