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!!.

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.
