Book Description

June 26 2012 In Death Series (Book 1)
Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Damn! I wish I hadn't done that! "Naked in Death" is the first in JD Robb's popular Death series which is now almost two dozen novels strong ... and I loved it! My pocketbook will protest and my bookshelves will be groaning under the ever increasing load as I begin the quest to accumulate the rest of the series.

Eve Dallas is a lieutenant in the New York City Police Department. The story is set in 2058 - a future near enough to be entirely recognizable but far enough away that Robb can postulate some very interesting technological and cultural developments - guns have been banned; prostitution is legal and completely regulated; cars have an auto-pilot setting; VR simulations have advanced to a heart-stopping, palm-sweating, gut-wrenching reality that is light years beyond the technology we know of today; smoking is almost a thing of the past; police weaponry consists only of lasers and high powered stun guns with handguns firing real bullets available only in museums and private collections; and, would you believe it, recreational "hotels" for the über-wealthy are actually in continuous orbit above the earth!

The murder, on the other hand, is one we are, sadly, all too familiar with - the violent, gruesome, almost ritualistic slaying of a sex trade worker, now known by the euphemism "licenced companion", which is only the first of an intended series by a serial killer. He left behind a note ... "ONE OF SIX"! This particular licenced companion, Sharon DeBlass, just happened to be the grand-daughter of a US Senator and you might well imagine the political pressure that is being brought to bear on Dallas and NYPD to solve the case.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just OK Feb. 24 2013
By tracyb
Format:Kindle Edition
First book of the series, no desire to read the rest.
Very predictable and so, boring. This is also a first read of a JD Robb, though I've read plenty of Nora Roberts in the past and found them interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would I have known? Feb. 27 2010
By Chris TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While reading this book, I tried to compare the prose of J.D. Robb and Nora Roberts. There are differences -more swearing by Robb, for one- but the similarities stand out when the characters get into their routine "I want to jump his/her bones" thoughts/emotions. As for the story, despite a decent ending, I wasn't that enthralled by it. The characters of Eve and Roarke, however, made up for it; their interaction and backgrounds were intriguing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent read but not worth 5 stars April 11 2004
By p-dubya
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I understand that most of these 5 star reviews are coming from loyal Nora Roberts fans so if you are a loyal fan, you might want to read those instead of this one. This review is coming from someone who has read Nora but isn't a die hard fan, so maybe my expectations were a little off.
The plot was predictable in points which was slightly disappointing. For example: I had the 'surprise' killer figured out way before the main character did.
One thing that annoyed me was that one of the murder victims was a 'licensed companion' who was only prostituting herself until she got a publishing contract and realized her ambition to be a writer. <insert eyeroll here> I shouldn't hold this against Roberts, I suppose, because many many writers have characters be writers by profession. I just hate it. It's not at all unique or amusing. It's so overdone that it's cliche.
Dallas was pretty archetypal as the female detective who is irresistably sexy yet wears mannish clothes and has no sense of style. For a supposedly independent woman, she lets Roarke push her around and insert himself into her life quite rapidly.
Roarke was more interesting to me. Roberts hints at his background but leaves enough loose threads to make me wonder where she's going with this character in the rest of the series.
The romance between Dallas and Roarke didn't seem forced, given they met each other during the course of the murder investigation, and the sex between them was smokin hot.
All in all, this was an entertaining one-day read. The mystery was tight enough. The romance was hot enough. And the science fiction, while not technically accurate and more like 'social science fiction', was basically entertaining enough as well. Three stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any J.D. Robb fan! July 12 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Now I can't say that I'm a huge fan of Nora Robert's, I don't much care for romance personally. I do however LOVE the in death series! I was given several in the middle of the series, which led to my in death addiction. I finally got my hands on the book that started it all!

Exceptionally well written, a nice touch of romance, scandalous sex and page turning drama. Makes you want more and more! The in death series gives a very interesting perspective into what the world very well could be like in 2050 and beyond. Creative and forward thinking without being tacky and too over the top, the in death series has whetted my appetite for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cross-Over Novel May 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I was a fan of mystery novels before I stumbled upon Roberts "Born In" romance series. Loved the romance but by the 3rd book in the trilogy, I was pretty bored with romance alone. This series is the best thing I've ever stumbled upon. While you're enthralled in the romance, you're thinking "who did it??", while you're enthralled in the mystery, you're thinking "are they going to 'do' it??" (ha ha). Not big in sci-fi, I could have done without the future, but it doesn't interfere enough for non-sci-fi fans, and actually adds a little flavor to the story.
I cannot put these books down. I'm on the 3rd in the series, excited that there are about 15 more to go! At this pace, I'll probably have the whole series read by the end of next week!
Die-hard mystery fans may be disappointed, as will die-hard romance fans. But if you like a little of everything, there's no better place to go!
