As always, J D Robb manages to draw the reader's attention to the facts and happenings at hand, and involve them in the emotional rollercoaster that is life. Although these are fictional people she describes, the issues tackled are only too real and sadly happen around us every day. This is what makes stories as described here so involving, but also 'distant' enough not to put off whoever picks up the novel. Maybe it's the combination of hunting the bad people while also dealing with important life issues, but it could also be the simple discovery as to what people are capable of - meaning what they can overcome in order to finally deal with the past, letting go of past traumas and moving on in life. This is an aspect so very often overlooked and is so very important to be made / become aware of - even if it sometimes seems insurmountable!
All the books in the series have been leading up to this story. As more and more of Eve's past has become known it's been apparent that at some point she would have to confront it and in this book she comes face to face with her childhood nightmares. As always there is a generous helping of humour and romance in this story which helps to temper some of the ugliness of the crimes being committed.
Although I enjoy a good first person story, the beauty of a 3rd person narrative is that you get to hear what all the characters are thinking, not just the main one. That's important in this kind of book where the plot is driven by the dialogue and not necessarily the action. As Eve spends more and more time trying to profile her suspect and target where she will capture him we get variety and insight by getting to hear what the suspect is thinking and feeling.
I'm surprised that this series hasn't hit TV or the movies yet. It would make a great crime/drama/sci-fi series with the right casting and scripts.
I can see far ahead in this series. In fact it could now be called In Life instead of In Death and focus on things like Eve and Roake's children which I'm sure will be showing up sooner rather than later and even delving into the futuristic aspect that so far has only been a setting for the stories rather than a plot line. This series still has a long way to go and JD Robb shows no signs of stopping for which I'm glad.
I truly enjoyed the story,the writing and of course, Eve and Roarke!
There is the usual villain whose crimes mirror the abuse Eve suffered as a child from her father. Eve has to confront monsters she thought were long put away and the process comes close to destroying her. But she also is able to lean on Roarke, on Mira, and to accept that she has a "family" who love her and whom she loves. This Eve is a long step from the suspicious, constricted, emotionally frozen woman we first met in this series. The unwinding of the story parallels Eve's painful release of the emotional restraints which have tortured her all her life. A very well done book. Could not put it down.
