Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Set in the year 2059, this latest in Robb's long-running series (Naked in Death, etc.) featuring acerbic Lt. Eve Dallas of the New York police is the best in recent memory. In the past, Robb has kept whiz-bang futuristic effects to a minimum, allowing her world to grow organically out of dialogue and characterization; this time she incorporates science fiction elements—including the future of cosmetic surgery, cloning, scientific morality and physical mortality—into her plot, giving the series a big shot of adrenaline. Eve and her partner, Det. Delia Peabody, are visiting the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery on a celebrity murder case when the center's founder, old Wilfred Icove, is discovered with a scalpel rammed into his heart. Wilfred Jr., also a surgeon at the center, is grief stricken, as is his family and most of the rest of the country. Wilfred Sr., everyone agrees, was a saint. Except he wasn't, as Eve and savvy mystery readers will have already guessed. Eve gathers her usual crime-fighting crew around her, including her drop-dead gorgeous, fabulously wealthy, staggeringly brilliant husband, Roarke. Robb tones down the romance and ups the action ante as the team uncovers an increasingly horrific crime that builds to a race-against-the-clock climax that will have readers cheering. (July)

I have read the whole series, and they get better and better. Little disappointed Eve didn't mention to Roarke, about the first woman, who had a similar situation, to when she killed her father, and had a one night stand with him. I like how she's portrayed, as a cold cop, but Trina,kids and Mavis's stomach, scare her to death. Hope, the next one goes into her and Roarke, doing that coaching, for the baby's birth, for Mavis, since she is about due. Also, I don't really get why her and Roarke call each other by formal names, she calls him Roarke, which is his last name, he calls her Lieutenant or Dallas, and how no mention of any contraceptive being used, and they have no kids. Only thing I don't like, is how she treats Summerset, he's like family to Roarke, but she goes out of her way to make him mad.
nother great mystery is ' Quest ' by Giorgio Kostantinos.

I have bought all the paperbacks of Nora Robert (J.D. Robb) Eve Dallas books and still re-read them regularly. Robbs' use of language and the imagery of Homicide Lieutanant Eve Dallas, her faithful aid Peabody and her zillionaire husband Rourke make a very pleasing mix of humour, criminolgy and phychology that holds the reader's attention.

Origin in Death is one of the better novels of the series and deals with clonning, women produced on order and the murder of the two people, father and son that have perfected the technique. An excellent read.

Like others in the series, Origin in Death, was an enjoyable read. While the "In Death" series follows a forulma of sorts, it is still an entertaining read.
Like others in the series, the story has twists and turns that are unexpected and the interaction of the series' characters provide depth to the series.

I'm a big fan of Lieutenant Eve Dallas, I have every book she wrote both in english and in french. I'm hardly ever disapointed by Nora Roberts and this book delivers on every level. I especially liked the part where we get to meet Roarke's family. It was a bit short, but ok. I can't wait for the next Eve Dallas.

In fact better than average for this popular series. What makes it better is the victim, who although we never meet him in life is a fascinating mix of good and evil. It's nice to see Nora Roberts remembering that this is a science fiction mystery, and to come up with a genuinely sfnal concept for one.

I'm a huge fan of J.D. Robb and the In Death series, and have read each and every one - some more than once. This one packs a lot of action into the read, which I like. There's more of a futuristic element than I've seen to date, and, of course, all those great characters hovering around Eve Dallas.
