Reva Ewing, a former secret service officer now works for Roarke as a security analyst and they are working on a big project for the government involving techno-terrorism. The murder investigation moves to the Roarke mansion for greater security and we get to see all the toys Roarke plays with.
Eve finds out some more about her past and this brings Eve and Roarke's first real marital squabble. Roarke wants revenge and Eve doesn't want more violence. It is heart-breaking to watch this squabble and the reader really sees how much Eve needs Roarke. This doesn't diminish Eve as the strong woman she is but seems to just be a vulnerability that makes her who she is
My fav of the series so far!
This time we've got spies and government intrigue at the heart of the murder case. But Divided is more personal than the other books. Eve and Roarke have always had heated arguments but have been solid with their marriage because of their love for each other. This time, they each struggle with something inherent to their make up and it's not so easily moved past.
A great part of the book, contrasted with the others, Eve and Roarke cannot find their way to each other, they are estranged by their different reactions to some information that comes to light about Eve's past. It's this struggle which makes the heart of the book so compelling because you want them to make it, they are the other half of the other but at the same time, some things can't just be moved past.
I won't give spoilers but I found this intensely personal approach a nice refreshing change from the other books and I thought Robb wrote it well and threaded it into the mystery in such a way that you don't get bored with one or the other.
There were a few scenes in the book where I must admit I did get a bit weepy. Eve, without Roarke's strength, without his love and support is very empty and sad and it reminds you of who she was in Naked In Death and how far she's come.
A very worthy read for those who've followed the series and the growth of the characters and the marriage between these two unlikely lovers.
The mystery was good and entertaining, with several amusing, well-placed, political "slams." It's also delightful to see Peabody as a detective and to get a closer look at Caro. I am looking forward to Visions in Death and to when this comes out in paperback.
The plot centers around an artist who is caught cheating by his wife, Reva, a security specialist who works at one of Roarke's firms. Reva is found at the scene of her husband and his lover's murder, but it seems immediately to be a frame; and a subsequent murder or two confirms that suspicion. The cop team pretty much takes residence at the Roarke mansion, fearing that security is so sensitive an issue on this case that working out of Police HQ is ill advised. The investigation soon embroils the Homeland Security agency, which is an interesting ploy that allows Robb to comment from the setting of the book at future year 2059 on the "history" and practices of that government entity. A wrinkle about Eve's own troubled past with an abusive father surfaces during the investigation that causes a huge riff between herself and Roarke -- and the resolution of that strain on their relationship is a strong sub-plot to the mystery.Read more ›

This is one of the better Eve Dallas books as it delves into the dilemma of Eve and Rouke's different view on vengence, the law, and their differing personal code. Read morePublished on Oct. 19 2009 by Sheila D. Manderson
