"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!!.
