Format: Mass Market Paperback
Take a straight-laced, by the book cop and mix in witchcraft and the occult, and you have confusion, well, at least, disbelief. And it all starts so innocently with the seemingly natural death of a highly respected fellow officer.
Suddenly, illegals are found in his system during a routine autopsy that require investigation on a need to know basis, followed by said cop's granddaughter's note to Eve asking for an urgent and secret meet. Intrigued yet? Well, that's only the beginning ...
It feels like the author has done some serious research into both, Wicca and the Occult - essentially white and black magic, Witchcraft versus Satanism that a lot of people have difficulty differentiating between. The same goes for Dallas, Lieutenant Eve. She has quite a learning curve ahead and J D Robb did a wonderful job describing the same, too. Oh, and did I mention that the White Witch's mate's father was a serial killer?
As always, this adventure grips the reader from beginning to end, with an ending that is not at all as expected. J D Robb is something of an expert when it comes to creating suspense, mystery as well as weaving in red herrings ... as well as having our heroine going off in the wrong direction. And it all makes perfect sense.
The awkward social issue in this case? Not too much, actually. There is Mavis' Halloween Party predecessed by a visit to Trina which Eve dreads with a vengeance and usually with good reason as she tends to be submitted to treatments she never agreed to as well as little tattooes seem to suddenly be discovered somewhere on her body. In this storyline, Eve also has a falling out with her mentor Feeney and her aid Peabody ... nothing major, really. It is an interesting and entertaining sideline, nonetheless.
Having now read most of the books in this series, J D Robb still manages to surprise, come up with interesting issues and subject matters, and present new, insightful and intriguing cases.

This is the 5th novel in the "Death" series and its the best one yet. Jd Robb has really hit her stride with this novel- the characters are well fleshed out and the story line is fascinating. For those not familiar with the series, Jd Robb chronicles the life and cases of police Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke. The novels take place in the future around 2058.

In Ceremony in death, Eve is forced to investigate the death of a fellow officer. Her investigation leads her to satanic cults, Wiccan religious groups, and more murders. It seems that everyone Eve questions ends up getting killed and soon Eve herself is the target. Eve is disturbed by the ritualistic killings, especially given her own abused background. And she has no shortage of suspects.
The attraction of the series is the mix of suspense and romance- all meshed into a great murder mystery. Its nice to continually follow the same main characters. Their complex and evolving relationship are what keep me reaching for the next book. Too often, storys concentrate on the courtship, but the Death series proves that marriage/committment are just as complelling, romantic and sexy. Eve and Roarke have a great partnership and chemistry that has been evident since their first meeting in book 1, Naked in Death.
While Ceremony in Death is the 5th book, those who haven't read the earlier novels won't get confused as each book is essentially self contained. But loyal readers are rewarded as familiar characters are brought back--like Mavis, Peabody, Fenney and the butler. But prior knowledge of the series isn't required- in fact, I read book 1 Naked in Death and then this one..and have read some of the others out of order.
Happy Reading!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The futuristic series by J.D Robb featuring Eve Dallas as the main character has been one of the series I have enjoyed most lately. Another series I love is the one written by Laurell K. Hamilton and presenting Anita Blake, vampire executioner and animator, as its heroine. The two have a few common traits, the clearest one being tough and sexy main female characters. Also, both series are now being published by the same house (Berkley Publishing Group). Nevertheless, I was extremely surprised when J.D. Robb introduced in this novel some of the elements I am used to finding in the Hamilton series, like shapeshifters and black magic. I enjoy the futuristic world in which Eve lives and hope that in the future Robb sticks with that world without trying to incorporate elements that are successful in another author's work.
As usual J.D. Robb jumps into the action right away, with the death of Frank Wojinski, a cop that served as Feeney's trainer when Eve's friend and mentor joined the force. The death was ruled as a heart attack, but there are some unanswered questions, especially since the cop was young: sixty-two years old! One of the granddaughters of the deceased, Alice, surreptitiously asks Eve for a meeting claiming that Eve's life is in danger. Alice tells Eve that she believes a black witch called Selina is involved in her granddad's death.
Selina was seen shortly before Frank's death selling drugs to him, so now Eve is asked to investigate Frank's death and to determine whether he was a dirty cop or was just working undercover by his own volition. To make matters worse, traces of the drug Zeus were found in the body and Eve is asked to leave Feeney out of the investigation and in the dark.
