Product Description

From Amazon

In 21st-century New York City, tough-as-nails cop Eve Dallas can survive a bombing, seduce her husband, and outsmart a terrorist--all on four hours of sleep. In this latest installment of the In Death series, author J.D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) casts our heroine against an enigmatic group of terrorists named Cassandra. With no clear motivation or demands, Cassandra feeds on the thrill of senseless killing and the calculated destruction of Eve's world.

Relying on her own brawn and brains, as well as that of her aid Peabody and her husband Roarke, Eve begins to unravel a mystery that began decades before. When the killer's threats land close to home, Eve knows she has no choice but to gamble her own life for the chance to save her city as well as her loved ones.

J.D. Robb's combinations of mystery, suspense, and romance keep the fans of this series clamoring for more, and Loyalty in Death has equal amounts of each. While the passion between Eve and Roarke is as good as ever, the introduction of a new romantic element certainly turns up the heat and is a welcome twist. Though the evil-terrorist-in-NYC theme has been done before (most recently in The Siege), these beloved characters put up a good fight, and keep us glued to the pages. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loyalty in Death by J. D. Robb Aug. 30 2011

This is one of her many in Death books. I have collected them all and so thoroughly enjoyed them that I have now got most of Nora Roberts (J. D Robb) books. This is a great series for those who like Nora Roberts book. Be sure to read the complete series.

4.0 out of 5 stars An almost perfect mixture ... Jan. 10 2007
By M. B. Alcat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Loyalty in death" is the tenth book in J. D. Robb's "In death" series, and one of the best books in it at least so far. The series, as you probably already know, is a perfect mixture of futuristic whodunnit + action + romance, and it is set in 2059, in New York City. This book can be read by itself, but you will probably enjoy it much more if you read first "Naked in death", the first book in the series, and then the others that follow it.

In "Loyalty in death" Lieutenant Eve Dallas continues to fight crime, and has to face a dangerous terrorist threat that has its roots in the past. She has the help of her dependable aide Delia Peabody (who is a little distracted due to love problems and a visiting brother), and that of her "civilian" husband, Roarke (who will help her whether she wants his help or not). Both Eve and Roarke receive taunting messages from the terrorist group, that dares Eve to stop them, and makes targets out of Roarke's properties.

The question is, will Eve be able to find and stop the terrorists before they hurt innocent people?. If you want the answer to that question, and are eager to relax while reading a good book, give "Loyalty in death" a try. You won't regret it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another "Death" series winner... April 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jd Robb's 9th entry in her "Death" series has Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke receiving threatening letters from a terrorist group. Each letter brings about a public threat/bomb that threatens civilians, property and the city.
Like all the "Death" novels, the mystery and relationship between Eve and her husband are effectively blended. There is also a subplot involving Eve's police partner, Peabody and her brother. The main plot of the terrrorist threats and the subplot advance and blend seamlessly--until the end where they are eventually connected and intertwined. Its nice to get some background on Peabody and her life--each book in the series gives us more and more information on the secondary characters.
In the wake of 9/11, I found that the plot of the book hit all too close to home, as New York was again targeted by terrorists. It was almost painful to read about the bombs and chilling when they go off and harm innocent civilians. Loyalty in Death is definately one of the better novels in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family. Loyalty. War. Terrorists. May 10 2003
By JBogue
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the early dawn of the 21st century, a time of the Urban Wars, a group known as Apollo is blowing up buildings demanding an end to the corrupt government. After many ignored demonstrations of their power they finally go too far, and are systematically eliminated by the government. Fast forward to the present, 2059 and history seems to repeating itself.
Eve must stop this new terrorist group before they destroy her beloved city. Okay...I have to say that this book was written in 1999, and the eerie likeness to the events of September 11th, 2001 gave me chills. Despite the bad memories this book drags up, it is still GREAT! I finished it in under 24 hours. After the slower pace of CONSPIRACY IN DEATH, this book is like getting strapped into a roller coaster with no brakes. Wow, the action in LOYALTY IN DEATH in fast, intense and explosive!
As a bonus, this book focuses alot on Peabody. We get to meet her brother, Zeke, a free-ager visiting New York. She also continues to struggle with her love/hate relationship with McNab. Wow, that one is really heating up. Book #9, LOYALTY IN DEATH certainly does not dissappoint. It is a great, exciting addition to this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner... Aug. 22 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
What's not to like? You have Eve and Rourke's first real spat, you find out more about Peabody and McNab's sexual meltdown, you meet Peabody's brother and learn about her family, you have terrorists threatening New York (hope none of the Al Queda are readers...nah, not a woman writer with a woman character). All in all, a rollercoaster ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! March 10 2002
By Anna
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the best "In Death" book so far! My friend got me to read 'Naked in Death' a few months ago and I have been a huge fan since. I'm only sad that there are only 5 left and I'll have to wait eagerly for the rest soon! Reading this now is a little bit sad, because even though it was written years ago, the plot about a terrorist organization bombing New York and DC landmarks really hits home.
On the flipside though, it's still a fantastic read. The plot is great and incorporates all of our favorite supporting characters, and introduces a few more- Peabody's brother Zeke, as week and Malloy, a fellow female cop who Eve admires and befriends. The passion and love between Eve and Roarke is as wonderful as ever, and Nora proves that she is the master of writing tasteful yet steamy sex scenes. My favorite subplot is the sexual tension of Peabody and McNabb finally coming to a serious head- can't wait for them to fall for each other hard in later books. Read this, you'll love it!
