This is the first time that I've read a futuristic crime novel and, although I probably won't make a habit of it, I found it to be be very pacy and well written. Detective Eve Dallas, a gutsy, attractive 30 year old, married to a gorgeous hunk of a billionaire, becomes very involved in a sinister scheme to zap the brains of child porn monsters via their computers.The story is set some 60 years into the future and is full of techno talk like voice driven computers which can do almost anything. After an initial reluctance, I was soon drawn in and read it in 2 sittings.

I typically read every book in a detective series, starting with the first one and rarely have I enjoyed all the books in any one series the way I enjoy the Eve Dallas books. Their characters have grown since the first book. J.D. Robb has kept Eve and Roarke focused while unfolding tantalizing bits of their backgrounds in each successive book. Robb has also kept a firm hold on her settings and best of all, you don't know who did it until the very end! Eve battles her personal demons in Purity in Death as well as the criminals and the endings are never sugar coated. I will keep on reading them as long as Robb keeps on writing them!

This is a truly bad book without a single original moment in it. Don't waste your time and money.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the 15th novel in the Nora Roberts (writing as J. D. Robb) suspense/mystery/crime thriller series about a NYC Homicide Lieutenant, Eve Dallas. Supporting our leading lady is a cast of characters we have come to enjoy, including her billionaire husband, Roarke; her aide, (Ms.) Peabody; a young policeman named Trueheart (honest!); and electronic/computer cop specialists McNab and Feeney. A contemporary premise, that a PC virus could cause a human brain virus, starts things off in a hurry with Trueheart killing a civilian who seemingly has gore berserk and murdered one of his neighbors while raving and ranting about how his head hurts. Eve Dallas takes this call, and soon other deaths in like fashion occur, including one in which a fellow cop is killed from working on an infected PC. Autopsies reveal significant brain swelling from unknown causes. A screen message "Absolute Purity has Been Achieved" leads to the supposition that a vigilante group is behind the killings, as at first their targets are dope dealers and pedophiles, etc. The story follows police efforts to identify and catch the criminals -- but along the way we get doses of differing philosophy about the group and its cause; emotional scenes surrounding the death of the policeman and McNab's disability; glimpses into the politics of modern police departments, and as much suspense as we can handle til the real culprits surface after several mis-directions near the end.
As always, the scene is set ahead in time 50 years, so that video cellphones, personal air vehicles and a few other sci-fi touches enliven the stories without dominating the basic police procedurals.

I picked up this book after hearing women on my Janet Evanovich e-list raving about how good this series was. I was leery. I've read Nora Roberts. I don't like her! I was supposed to read something else by her and enjoy it? Oh I don't think so.
I was pleasantly surprised! I found this book to be refreshing in its creativity and characterization. Eve Dallas is a woman to envy. She's witty, intelligent, and she's got a drop dead gorgeous husband.
She is won't let anything keep her from finding out what is going on with murderous victims' displaying "ABSOLUTE PURITY ACHIEVED" on their computer screens. The scum of New York City are dying, but so are the innocents, the by-standers, and cops. Eve has a team of experts working on the computers but can she stay ahead of an organization that may have powerful supporters in all parts of the city?
