Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Once again Lt. Eve Dallas shows why she's "New York City's top murder cop" in Roberts's 24th thriller under her Robb pseudonym set half a century into the future (after 2006's Born in Death). Dallas tries to close a case at the exclusive Sarah Child Academy, where two bright 10-year-old girls discover the body of Craig Foster, a popular history teacher who proves to have been poisoned by ricin-laced cocoa. Dallas wonders if another staff member or a parent might be involved, but after the prime suspect, a promiscuous teacher who's been harassing another employee, turns up dead, the investigation takes a shocking turn. Besides a provocative puzzler, Robb provides an intense relationship update on Dallas and Roarke, her Irish power broker hubby, whose dark past—in the form of a crooked ex-girlfriend—returns to cause trouble. This prolific author, a recent Quills romance winner, is still at the top of her game. (Feb.)

"Innocent in death" was not one of my favourite books in J. D. Robb's "In death" series, and I strongly regret having bought the hardback edition. Was I too blunt expressing my disappointment? Please bear with me, as I am not feeling very pleased with my purchase right now...

Truth to be told, I love almost all the books in the "In death" series, and I think that Lt. Eve Dallas is an excellent character, well complemented by her friends and her husband Roarke. What is more, J. D. Robb manages to include interesting whodunits in the plot of her books, making the crimes and their solution a central part of the story.

If that is the case, what didn't work this time? Well, to start with, the solution of the crime and the events that led to it were far from convincing, and I couldn't help but think "that is it'?" at the end of the book. Moreover, the relationship between Eve and Roarke suffered a big blow, thanks to the return of one of his old girlfriends, and his inability to just listen to Eve's worries. Even though Robb shows quite well the way in which her personal troubles make it more difficult for Eve to concentrate on her job, she makes it too easy for Roarke at the end. I wish something happens in the next book that puts him in Eve's position, as he didn't suffer nearly enough in this case. Of course, he didn't really do anything wrong, but he lacked empathy, and we aren't accustomed to that from Roarke.

On the whole, I think that you will be enjoy some parts of this book, but not all of it. From my point of view, "Innocent in death" is worth reading, but you shouldn't buy the hardback edition. That was my mistake...

"Innocent in Death" was probably the best of the four "In Death" books I've read - lots of soapy drama involving
Roarke and Magdalena - but I am finding Eve Dallas harder and harder to like. In this edition, she showed vulnerability and I thought, "Maybe she just isn't a jerk with a badge"; then she went and did something I found reprehensible and who knows whether I'll read another in the series.

This is one of my favourite in the series. It shows how a couple, who are totally committed can lose that 'connection' if they aren't careful.

I thought the story of the murder was perfect. I never thought the killer was who it was but getting near the end I realized something was amiss in that household so clued in before the end.

Another great one.
