Book Description

Nov. 25 2006 In Death Series (Book 6)
He is an expert with the latest technology . . . a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past - a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Sept. 9 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read and kept every Nora Roberts aka JD Robb. I am just finishing up her newest and am loving every minute. She can't write them fast enough for me. If you like romance, complicated characters, humor, fast pace action and don't mind some violence, buy and read. Her story lines are always amazing and having the same characters, Eve, Roake, Peabody, McNab, etc., just makes the reading more fun. Roberts does'nt just write about a new murder, but she works hard to have her characters grow with each book. You and they understand more about them. I hope she continues to write as Nora Roberts and JD Robb for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the best March 28 2010
By Lotusland Lady TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoy every one of the "In Death" books but so far, this is my favourite. It perhaps would not be a good starting point for the series, actually starting with the first and reading them in order (which I am now doing) is the best plan because the growing relationship between Eve Dallas and Roarke is the foundation of all these books. J.D. Robb introduces characters into the stories who, in the main, continue and develop as the books continue. In this book McNabb is first seen and, if you have read the latter books you realize how entrenched he becomes in the stories' fabric. But in this book the focus is on Roarke and Summerset. We see another side of Roarke, a ruthless side and, as well, a charming young Roarke at work picking pockets in Dublin, counting his profits from smuggling into Ireland and already making moves to overcome his heritage and succeed. It deepens the character whom we know as an incredibly wealthy and powerful titan of business. Summerset has always been a strange questionable character. Why does he dislike Eve so much and why does Roarke, who will tolerate no other insult to his wife, keep Summerset in his home and clearly care for the man. These questions are explored and largely answered in this book and that deepens the story. Essentially, despite the grisly crimes Eve is investigating, this is a story of relationships, Eve and Roarke, Eve and Peabody, Eve and Summerset, Roarke and Summerset, Summerset to his own demons, Roarke and his past, and the murderer to his own obsessions. In fact relationships, not murder, are the real focus of the entire series, which makes them a very satisfying read.

By M. B. Alcat TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
J. D. Robb is the pseudonym Nora Roberts uses for her futuristic "In death" series, set in the year 2058. Many things have changed, but other stay the same. There are criminals, and those who fight against them. Eve Dallas is one of those who try to uphold justice. "Vengeance in death", the 6th book in the series, starts by stating that "The business of murder took time, patience, skill, and a tolerance for the monotonous. Lieutenant Eve Dallas had them all".

In this book, we will see Eve applying those skills to the solution of some crimes that strike close to her. Victims previously connected to her husband Roarke start to appear gruesomely murdered, and there are clues that tie their deaths to a vengeance carried out long ago by Roarke, in Ireland. When someone tries to frame Roarke's butler Somerset as the murderer, Eve knows for certain that something is afoot. The question is what, and why?.

In my opinion, "Vengeance in death" is a book well-worth reading, even though it isn't the best in the series. You will enjoy trying to discover the mystery behind the murders, and learning more about Roarke and Somerset's past. The interaction between Ian McNabb (from the Electronic Detective Division) with Eve's faithful sideckick, Officer Delia Peabody, will draw sparks and make the reader smile and wonder about them. All in all, I think that you will like this book, specially if you have already read the previous books in the series. Happy reading :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Eve and Roarke at their best! May 1 2003
By JBogue
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Do you believe in the saying, "An eye for an eye?" Well, some one in Manhattan does, and they are killing for that belief in vengeance. Eve and Peabody investigate a series of brutal homicides and discover that they are all linked to Roarke's past. Eve is torn between duty and family, because Summerset (Roarke's butler, and oldest friend) is the primary suspect.
Feeny is away on vacation and Eve is forced to bring in a young and some what annoying e-detective named McNab. The chemistry between McNab and Peabody is quite amusing. They fight like cats and dogs, but underneath is a brewing sexual tension. The addition of McNab to Eve's team is refreshing. It is fun to have a new face that shakes everyone up.
As the team investigates these slayings, Roarke is brought face to face with a past that he has tried to bury. This book really expands on the characters of Roarke and Summerset. Those of you reading the series know that Eve and Summerset are like oil and water, and now they have to put their trust in each other so they can work together to find the real killer. The suspense is back and better than ever. This book really heats up, so open it up and hang on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wonderful Read! Jan. 15 2002
By Sophie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"Vengeance in Death" continues J.D. Robb's "In Death" series, and this book might just be the best yet. The world in 2058 is a fascinating place, but the real intrigue in this story lies in the characters.
Robb has an amazing ability to paint vivid and realistic characters, and then explore those characters so that we, as readers, come to feel like we really know them. This is exactly what has happened for me with Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke. Each book delves a little deeper into these two, as individuals and as a unit, and I am completely addicted to reading about them. In fact, I would say that Eve, the independent and emotionally troubled cop, and Roarke, the dangerously handsome and charming billionaire, are my favourite couple of all time! Their relationship continues to grow and flourish as they adjust to their overpowering feelings for each other, and the passionate scenes they share all but send sparks from the pages!
In this particular instalment, Eve is working a new case involving a twisted killer who commits unspeakable acts of torture on his victims (two so far) and then, after hours of torment, murders them. In each case, the killer sends the police a taunting riddle, which Eve solves just too late to prevent the murder. As Eve delves into the investigation, it becomes apparent that the link between the two victims is her husband, Roarke, and a dark secret from his past involving Summerset's murdered daughter. Now Eve must walk the thin line between protecting her husband and finding justice for the dead, before another life is lost!
This book will draw you in right from the start and keep you captivated until the end. The plot is suspenseful, thrilling, and completely absorbing. I highly recommend each and every book in this series, and this one will leave you craving many more visits with Eve and Roarke. I guarantee it!
