At 27 books and counting, Nora Roberts is more prolific under her Robb pseudonym than most authors manage in a single career. Yet the latest in her not-so-near-future detective series featuring New York Police Det. Eve Dallas offers a satisfyingly novel mélange of suspense, sex, forensics and heroics. It's 2060, and the serial killer nicknamed The Groom is back in town after an absence of nine years, resuming his horrific run of kidnapping, torturing and killing young women. Dallas, who served as a detective in the frustrating first investigation, assumes lead role in this one. This time, not only do the killer's chosen victims have ties to Dallas's husband, Roarke, but Dallas herself may be the killer's ultimate target. Swiftly paced, the story cuts frequently from the investigation to the killer's progress with his victims. Dallas works to outplan, outfight and outsmart the killer; to keep her handsome, rich husband happy; and to be ready for the next round after a good night's sleep. Robb's latest is bound to please Dallas fans. (Nov.)

Top Customer Reviews
The author also covers the ‘way of life’ of a homicide investigator and team – with a humane rather than political and business-like person at the top who supports, even gets involved to get the job done. This, too, points toward the fact that justice, today, very often ‘limps’ behind because not each and every resource is put into action, often because of money and/or lack thereof.
Thus, this is yet another adventure of Dallas, Lieutenant Eve, Roarke and her team as well as other departments involved tackling a very important case as the writer tackles a very important issue from beginning to end. And, as always, it is hard to put the book down once the reader gets started. And J D Robb does not appear to have run out of ever new ideas and issues to cover …
I do feel that one book is usually quite great then the next blah and this has been going on for awhile now and I'm moreorless expected this one not to be that great since the last one was quite good.
I do feel, and I have been a enormous fan of the death books, that they are getting stale. Cause we know about Eve's background and Roarkes so that aspect is done with so all is left is the murder cases with little personal bits in there so maybe it's only natural that this would be the way it is cause after all she's been writing this series since 1995 even though the actual span of the books is about 2 years which I never understood but that's how it is.
Arguments and fights between some of the more active characters make them appear more human and all the more believable.
The plot was good, not so many twists but you get even more information and more of a feel about the perpetrator in this one, a better sense of the why. Although it wasn't complicated, I really loved how it all came down. Ariel was perfectly added as the last 'victim', and I'm glad Eve connected with her on some level. Although only a 'temporary character', I really hope to see her again in a future novel.
What Eve asked Roarke to do - stepping 'over the line' as she did, I wholeheartedly agreed with and would have done the same in her position. I won't go into further detail as it would spoil the ending, but I was more than glad of it. You'll understand what I mean when you read it.
