Another Grave Mystery
on June 15, 2015
Yet another great adventure in J D Robb’s In Death series and this one is very close to our heroine’s heart – it involves a number of cop murders. However, Dallas, Lieutenant Eve, not only has to find a serial killer, she also has to fight other cops who want to take over the case, having lost their own.
As always, the author describes each and every aspect in great detail, and portrays each and every component of her investigation from where our homicide cop is first called right to the bitter end. Naturally, there are plenty of red herrings accompanying her search for the killer with some very intriguing twists and turns along the way. Essentially, the reader never quite knows where it will lead, who is involved and who is on the right or wrong side of the law. However, Dallas never wavers in standing for the dead, no matter what, and following through until all questions are answered and the culprit discovered and caught.
And, of course, there is the social aspect of Eve’s life that she is still struggling with and which is delectable to follow up on. This time, she’s having a major fight with her new hubby that needs resolving and this happens in a rather unusual manner. She’s also still upset that her ‘sidekick’ is involved with a colleague in a rather passionate way and while she does ask questions and makes statements, she then loathes the resulting answers … almost as much as she hates asking for advice.
Essentially, this series not only provides the readers with the suspense of finding criminals and murderers, but also covers social issues of one woman recovering from a nightmare childhood and finding her place in the world. And J D Robb is a master when it comes to both.
