Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

I love this series so much and couldn't wait to receive the latest. Unfortunately, I found it disappointing. It was so serious -- no fun scenes, no really great stand-out scenes, especially with Roarke. It seemed formulistic and for the first time, I thought Roarke really became a lapdog to Eve's demands. Also, the crime-solving details got very tedious and then --boom, it's over. This is the first of the 25 that hasn't wowed me. That said, I can't wait for the next one!

Creation in Death deals with a serial killer that has returned to New York after an absence of 9 years, which, of course, lies heavily on the homicide cops that could not stop him then and feel guilty about all those people dying since. This is yet another very pertinent topic J D Robb covers – something that happens way too often in today’s day and age and is often not really due to fault or incompetence of the police force, but a sad effect of today’s judicial system.
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 have to agree with the previous reviewer not one of the better books. But Nora's 'not so great' is still good I think though she is so good that her fans expect a superb book each time and that's just not possible. This book was ok but to be perfectly honest nothing really stood out. The argument between Feeney & Eve was so lame I was like what is the fuss. Roarke and Eve were back on track lovey dovey and some of the lines Nora gives them makes me roll my eyes P-L-E-A-S-E only in books and the movies do people talk like this but oh well.....I wonder who ran Roarkes business while he was in the 'war room' with Eve & crew?? We had the obligatory Mavis visit of course, Nadine getting the inside scoop which again is odd I mean why isn't this causing a big flack with other press people it's pure favoritism.
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.

Again, Robb brings back the characters we love with a new crime to solve. Roarke works more hands-on this time, getting a real picture of what cops do. He'd never been this 'in' it before, and it was great to see him there, and get his 'feel' for what cops go through during an intense investigation.

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.
