This is another of my favorite IN DEATH books. The characters are very well written. The storyline keeps the interest of the reader. J. D. Robb knows people and writes them into her stories very well. I highly recommend this book.

I originally started JD Robb's In Death series because it was recommended to me by well... everyone. And Yes it is good. In fact I ended up liking this 2nd part even more then the first however (except for Roarke) I didn't totally love it either. The writing is top notch and Robb spins an easy to read dark mystery filled with lots of interesting suspects(including Roarke again.) But I'm just not a fan of the police procedurals and therefore large parts of this book dragged for me. Particularly when Eve very dryly and very frequently interrogated the many suspects (these parts read like furniture assembly instructions) and in the end I couldn't have cared less about whodunit. I was reading strictly for the romance and a certain someone named Roarke.

Sigh... Irish lilting, button carrying, patient, unwaveringly romantic, sexy, mystery man Roarke. If only he existed in the real world. Yes I have developed a serious literary crush on him and he's what keeps me coming back to this series. I love how he is tough yet tender with Eve while accepting her unconditionally just the way she is.

Speaking of Eve, although I still find her character very difficult to like she does soften here some, allowing herself to gradually except the little pockets of peace Roarke creates for her. I'm also beginning to realize that Roarke is equally as damaged as Eve and that's what draws the two of them together, making their developing relationship worth watching. One of my favourite parts of this book would be the afterwards of an explosive confrontation when Eve finally, finally lets Roarke in.

"Glory in death" is the second book in J. D. Robb's futuristic "In death series". Truth to be told, this book fulfils the promise I found in "Naked in death", and continues to engage me, and quite certainly many more readers. J.D. Robb is the name Nora Roberts uses for the "In death" series, a strange but effective blend of whodunnit, romance and action, set in the year 2058, in New York City.

The main character is a member of the NYPSD, Lieutenant Eve Dallas. "A decade as a cop had toughened her, given her a cold, and often cynical eye toward death and its many causes. It made scenes such as the one she viewed now, on a rainy night on a dark street nasty with litter, almost too usual. But still, she felt". Eve's business is murder, but she cannot help identifying with the victims of a new lunatic loose in her city, someone who preys on successful women.

Eve is also a person with a troubled past, who overcame extremely difficult circumstances and became an excellent good cop. She is also someone beginning a relationship with the most unlikely person for her: Roarke, a handsome billionaire with a shady past. In "Naked in death" we saw the beginnings of their relationship, and in "Glory in death" we are allowed to see its development. Of course, that happens amid of murder... Unfortunately for both Eve and Roarke, the victims are once again persons that Roarke knew, and that strains their relationship to the point that ending it will become a very real possibility.

On the whole, I highly recommend "Glory in death" as a worthy addition to the "In death" series. Enjoy it!!.

After Naked in Death, I had to run out and buy this one to see where the romance of Eve and Roarke lands. I'm baffled that Robb manages to keep the romance interesting through 2 novels, as I expect she will through the rest of the series (we'll see).
Definately a good read! Love the mix of mystery and romance as I tend to get bored with romance novels alone. I highly recommend, but start it on a day when you can sleep in the next morning, as I found myself up late unable to put it down!

As far as mysteries go, the killer in this book can be easily figured out so there's not much suspense there. But for those in love with Eve and Roarke, this is an important part of their relationship.
This book contains my favourite scene in the whole series when Eve finally admits with great reluctance that she loves Roarke. That section is beautifully written, and J.D. Robb does not compromise their strong willed characters when she writes that part.
It's much easier to write how protaganists fall in each other's arms and let down all barriers to declare their love. What is more difficult is when they admit their love and their characterizations remain true even when they are in the most vulnerable of circumstances. So make sure you read Glory in Love, don't give it a miss just because the suspense element is not there.
