Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Though not as gripping as the previous installments in Robb's mid–21st-century In Death series (Remember When, etc.), this new offering showcases her many talents. New York policewoman Eve Dallas is on the trail of a serial killer who strangles his young female victims with a red ribbon and removes their eyes postmortem. Dallas and her longtime partner, Detective Peabody, pursue the criminal with wisecracking vigor and old-fashioned police work, assisted as well by Eve's handsome husband, billionaire businessman Roarke, and a beautiful psychic who volunteers to share her chilling visions of the murders. Naturally, the determined Dallas gets her man, though her toughness is shaken along the way by memories of her own childhood abuse, the murderer's vicious attack on Peabody and a surprising 11th-hour revelation. The Thomas Harrisesque mystery resolves rather simply, and the story gets less of an energy boost than usual from the romantic power play between Eve and Roarke and the edgy sci-fi detail that made the earlier books so distinctive. (In fact, the Manhattan of 2059 is oddly old-fashioned, with more homey crafts stores than the New York of 2004.) Nevertheless, the book is a sassy, smart-alecky read, possessing the warm characterizations and witty dialogue that have earned Robb/Roberts her huge and loyal readership.

Visions in Death is an amazing novel about the relationship between Eve and Roarke This novel is a gripping read from beginning to end. These two writers are awesome and I must add that I have never been disappointed reading their close to 20 books.
If you are a fan of the "In Death" series, then you certainly will enjoy this book as you have enjoyed the others. The characters were just amazing, especially in their relationships with one another over the stories.

In this book, there is a serial killer on the loose, and on her tracks is Eve who despite the hectic nature of the job, works herself to exhaustion, and nevertheless starts a new phase in her life by opening up to her friends about the abuses she underwent in her horrible childhood days. The mystery was good, Robb adds a psychic to the mix for something new. There end was sweet, especially the great twist at the end which was difficult for anyone to see coming. With wonderful characters, a superb setting and fast pace, this story stands as a classic.Also recommended: TRIPLE AGENT DOUBLE CROSS, ORIGIN IN DEATH
