Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Written under the pen name J.D. Robb, this futuristic mysteryDset in New York City, year 2059Dshowcases veteran writer Nora Roberts's skills at their best. It's as tough, smart, sassy and successful as its heroine, police lieutenant Eve Dallas. The story opens in the upscale nightclub Purgatory, where Dallas discovers the brutally slain body of a fellow officer; another cop is murdered soon thereafter. Both men, it appears, were on the take, and both were connected to elusive criminal Max Ricker. Dallas's investigation, which exposes crime and police corruption, puts both her reputation and life in danger. To make matters worse, Purgatory is owned by her own millionaire husband, RoarkeDa business associate of Ricker's before turning legitimateDand the overlap of professional and personal lives adds extra fireworks to an already tempestuous marriage. Robb's plotting is precise and fast paced, creating a satisfying mystery full of lively, credible twists. Secondary charactersDa troubled female police captain, an Internal Affairs cop with a leftover crush on DallasDare as well-drawn as Dallas herself, a tough but endearing 21st-century woman. Sexy, surprising and often funny power struggles between Dallas and Roarke are the tasty icing on this extremely well-made fictional "cake," which is just the right confection for lazy late-summer reading.

From Library Journal

The latest in Robb's (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) Eve Dallas series, this fast-paced mystery takes our tough-minded, insightful homicide lieutenant into the hellish world of "illegals" and crime as she investigates the vicious murder of a cop in a sleazy New York nightclub appropriately named Purgatory and owned, not surprisingly, by Eve's tycoon husband, who owns just about everything around. But things take a twisted and unexpectedly personal turn as Eve starts digging and more bodies show up, and soon she finds herself in the killer's sights as well. A law-flouting criminal kingpin with a personal vendetta who deals in illegals, a crazed cop on a murderous mission, and a pair of perfectly matched protagonists propel this fast-paced, gritty, often violent story, which provides what few romantic suspense novels canDan exquisite blend of electric sensuality, hard-core suspense, and soulwarming romance that continually brings fans back for more. Robb (Witness in Death) is a member of the RWA Hall of Fame and lives in Keedysville, MD.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

"Murder was rarely a tidy business. Whether it was craftily calculated or wildly impulsive, it tended to leave a mess for others to clean up". Eve's job is to do exactly that. As a Lieutenant of the NYPD, she stands for the dead, and seeks justice for them.

In "Judgment in death", the 12th book in J. D. Robb's futuristic "In Death" series, the victim is another cop, Taj Kohli. He was killed while working undercover in an exclusive nightclub, that casually belongs to no other than Eve's husband, Roarke. Matters complicate further when it appears than a shady and powerful character, Max Ricker, is somehow involved in detective Kohli's death. Ricker is a former associate of Roarke that nurses a grudge against him, and wants to make Roarke pay for deciding to go solo a long time ago. As if that weren't enough, Eve's investigation uncovers police corruption, and she has to decide who is to be trusted.

I think you are likely to appreciate the fact that recurring characters of the series appear in "Judgment in death" too. I strongly advise you read these books in order, so that you will have the opportunity of getting to know the characters slowly, and of watching them grow. Of course, my favourite interactions are those between Eve and Roarke, but there are plenty of other interesting characters, like Peabody, McNab, Captain Feeney and Doctor Mira. We even have a cop from Internal Affairs with a very big crush on Eve, something that Roarke will not take well :)

All in all, I really liked this book. The reasons for that are many: it has lots of action, a good plot and plenty of interesting characters. Due to all that, I recommend "Judgment in death" to you. Beware, though: the "In death" series is addictive!!

"Judgement in Death" is the 11th book in J.D. Robb's "In Death" series, and it is fabulous. The mystery is thrilling and expertly woven - it grips you from page one and immerses you in murder and mayhem and the quest for justice.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD is back on the job in the early months of 2059. She is searching for a cop killer, who brutally beat his victim to death in a club called Purgatory. The excessive violence of the crime and the loss of a fellow officer send Eve into overdrive. She turns up some dark secrets and confusing information related to her victim and discovers a connection to an Internal Affairs investigation. Eve knows someone isn't telling her the whole truth, but she has a cop killer to catch, so it's up to out favourite, feisty Lieutenant to put the pieces together on her own and bring justice to the dead.
Eve is a complex and emotionally troubled woman, whose determination and compassion will win readers' hearts. Her handsome husband Roarke is a perfect match for her. Indeed, Eve and Roarke continue to compel me to read about them. In this instalment they have some serious bumps in their marriage, and the problems they have come from loving each other too much. It is truly refreshing to read about two people who are as completely lost in each other as Eve and Roarke. Their love scenes vary from hot, hot passion to heart-breaking tenderness, but they always leave the reader satisfied.
It's hard to explain how much I enjoy this series, or what the characters have come to mean to me - so you'll just have to read each and every book and see for yourself. "Judgement in Death" is a skilfully rendered romantic suspense novel, full of vivid and fascinating characters you can't help but love. I guarantee you will enjoy this book immensely, so read it today!
