5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a TV Series Nov. 23 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first J. D. Robb title I've read, and yes it's the second in the "In Death" series.
Didn't matter -- it's a gripping, absorbing, riveting read even when you jump into the middle of the series. I'm sure I'd still enjoy reading the prequel.
But that fact alone - that the mystery and character relationships "work" whether you've read the previous book or not - makes this series eligible to become a TV series like Murder She Wrote.
And there's more. Nora Roberts has sketched her world as being in 2058 and beyond, and has said without showing that interstellar travel exists, interstellar business exists. Presumably nonhuman civilizations must exist too because there's no way we could invent an interstellar drive and create major businesses out there in a mere 55 years.
But Roberts has downplayed that background -- at least in this early part of the series.
With such a very light hand on the futurology, she has left room for the Studios to decide how big a budget this TV series would need -- and how much solid sf futurology they want to show, and how much they want to leave fuzzy so they can use cheap sets and makeup.
In fact, in this novel, the sf part of the background would seem to any sf reader/writer to be non-existent. Some people might complain about that, but I thought it to be a very astute commercial move.
It has made me want to read more of these novels in hopes that this background will appear. I would like to see Eve Dallas travel with Roarke to an interstellar setting and solve crimes there -- like Isaac Asimov's Caves of Steel.

5.0 out of 5 stars great series Aug. 17 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In this book, someone's slashing the throats of prominent and successful women. Since the suspects include family friends of Lieutenant Eve Dallas' commander and Eve's lover, Roarke, this becomes a very difficult case for her.
If you haven't read the first book, Naked in Death, I would suggest that you do that first, although this early in the series it's not as important. Just as a warning for those who have never read one of the In Death books, the mystery is not really the most important part in the book. I've heard regular mystery readers complain that they were able to figure out who committed the murders long before anyone in the books did. That wasn't the case for me - I enjoyed the mystery element in this book - but the relationships are the reason why I keep reading the series and why I reread all the books. In this book, Eve has to deal with her problems with commitment in her relationship with Roarke. The way Eve and Roarke interact is wonderful, and Eve's gradual attempts at making herself more than just a cop are interesting reading. I definitely recommend this book and series to anyone who likes well done and well paced romance with mystery and murder mixed in.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Death" Part Two Dec 25 2001
By edzaf
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Spunky police lieutenant Eve Dallas is back and tracking down a serial killer in the second book of JD Robb's (aka Nora Roberts) "In Death" series. As in the first installment, Eve's love interest, the mysterious and very rich Roarke, initially appears to be at the link between the murders. With their relationship growing stronger, this time Eve seems desperate to clear Roarke's name rather than implicate him. But fortunately for Eve there are far more suspects to concentrate on this time around. All the supporting cast are back as well, most notably Roarke's stuffy butler Summerset and Eve's wild musician friend Mavis.
"Glory In Death" continues the series' genre-bending ways. It is part-mystery, part-romance, and part-sci fi. Will it satisfy die-hard fans of each of the genres? Probably not, as one always seems to get in the way of the other. But for the rest of us, the mix provides a quick and entertaining read. It is surely enough to put the next installment, "Immortal In Death," on the "to be read" list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read! Dec 19 2001
By Sophie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Glory in Death" is the second instalment in Robb's (aka Nora Roberts) "In Death" series and it is even better than the first one.
In this book, Eve, a cop with the NYPSD in the year 2058 has another serial killer to catch. Someone is killing high-powered women in the public eye, and it's Eve's job to find out who.
Along with the exciting and imaginative mystery, there is also the developing relationship between Eve and billionaire Roarke. Their romance is fresh, complex and quite intense. Roarke is always willing to help Eve solve her cases with the many tools available to him, and together, both personally and professionally, these two make a great team.
Eve will win readers' hearts as the feisty and emotionally troubled heroine and Roarke is a hero who every reader will adore. The plot is suspenseful and well thought out and balances the mystery with the romance beautifully. Overall, this is a first-rate romantic suspense novel with a fascinating futuristic setting and I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Second installment in an unusual series June 26 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Glory in Death is not a perfect book but it is entertaining, as is the series. What I enjoy most about the entire series is the fact that it has elements of three genres - romance, mystery and science fiction. Does it do any of them perfectly? No. Is is refreshing to read something that isn't strictly formula? Yes. Could a first time writer get a publisher for something so out of the mold? Probably not, but Nora Roberts knows how to tell a story and publishers know she sells books.
In this book, an outspoken female prosecutor is killed. The victim is a close friend of Eve's boss. One of the interesting elements of the book is Eve's conflict between office politics and what's best for resolving the case. The media is hard on the case - and the newly famous female detective. Her relationship with billionaire, Roarke, only increases the pressure. Much of the book focuses on the maturation of Eve and Roarke's relationship which has some rocky moments.
I also enjoyed the future setting. Manhattan in 2058 is an interesting place. (And everytime I think the gadgets are impossible, I remember my skepticism about a thing called cell phones when a client discussed them in 1983.) I'm looking forward to learning more about this familiar but not so familiar world.
