Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The year is 2056. mood-altering drugs are legal, prostitution is licensed, virtual-reality games have replaced TV sets for entertainment and New York supercop Eve Dallas continues her sleuthing in Robb's fourth installment in the Death series (Naked in Death, Glory in Death, etc.). This time around, Eve has married her soul mate, Roarke, and is caught up in the puzzling suicide of a technician who's been working on Roarke's unfinished space resort. The young tech, Eve learns, had cheerfully hanged himself after a VR trip. Back on Earth, autopsies from two similar suicides reveal a pin-sized burn on the brains of the victims. All clues point to a deadly subliminal message in a VR toy?one that Roarke produces. This is sexy, gritty, richly imagined suspense. The fact that it is written by Nora Roberts under the pseudonym J.D. Robb is a tribute to her versatility.

Voice performer Susan Ericksen is both compelling and convincing in her reading of this fourth book in the "In Death" series by noted author Nora Roberts writing as J. D. Robb. As was the case with the three previous tales, "Rapture In Death" is a skillful blend of mystery, romance and hi jinks.
While Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows her way around her New York precinct and has seen what few can imagine, she's not come up against three apparent suicides - a sharp engineer, a questionable attorney, and a maybe, maybe not politician.
Is it possible that someone or something is causing these people to take their own lives? What does our intrepid detective discover as she probes the lives of the lately departed?
It's the year 2058 and Eve is supposed to be on her honeymoon with her new spouse at a resort on another planet. After all, this is 50 years hence so we can add sky glides, increased life spans, and the other someday-will-bes that we now read about in sci-fi.
The addition of techno thrills spices her story as Roberts spins another spellbinding yarn. This is a good one to listen to while curled up by the fire on a cold winter's night.

"Rapture in death" is the 4th book in J. R. Robb's futuristic "In death" series. I believe that this book is just as good as the previous ones, even though it has some scenes that are extremely unsettling. Despite that, "Rapture in death" has all the ingredients that make this series so engaging, that is a good mystery waiting to be solved plus romance, fast-paced action and very interesting characters.

It is the year 2058, and Lieutenant Eve Dallas is enjoying her honeymoon with Roarke, a handsome billionaire with a highly unorthodox past. Unfortunately, not even in a resort far from Earth can Eve escape murder, as she has to deal with the death of a young man who commits suicide. The case seemed deplorable but simple enough, until once back to Earth and her job in the New York Police Department Eve realizes that there might be a connection between that death and new ones, due to the fact that all the deceased committed suicide, had virtual reality machines, and small burns in their brains.

Along with her faithful aide Peabody, Captain Feeney and her "civilian expert" Roarke, Eve will try to find who is to blame in this mortal game where mind control is a factor that must be taken into consideration. Those who have already read the other books in the series, will be happy to know that they will meet again previous friends, for example Mavis and Nadine.

All in all, I think that you are likely to enjoy "Rapture in death", if you can get past the scenes I talked about at the beginning of this review. In my opinion, it is worthwhile trying to do so. Finally, and in case you are new to this series, I recommend you to read the books in the correct order, instead of starting with this one, because you will enjoy each one of them even more in that case. That having been said, happy reading :)

J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) has created an intriguing main character in Eve Dallas, and nowhere is this more evident than in this novel. Eve, recently married and still getting used to being well-taken-care-of, must solve a mystery that involves a series of apparently-rapturous suicides. This novel explores virtual reality AND the amazingly satisfying relationship between Eve and Rourke, her new husband. As intriguing as Eve is, Rourke is equally breathtaking as the husband who wants to protect and spoil his new bride while also yearning for her love in return. Several beautifully written and explicit love scenes stand out in the midst of all the high-tech gadgetry and rough goings on. Many fictional couples become less interesting once they're married, but Dallas and Rourke break that mold and work together as a team fuelled by energy, sexual attraction, and mutual affection. Rourke is always ready to save his wife, but she very rarely needs saving. Kudos to Ms. Roberts for creating a heroine who can take care of herself and a hero who knows how to step back and watch her do so

"Rapture in Death" is the 4th instalment in Robb's futuristic "In Death" series, and I am most impressed. I started reading Robb's books when I ran out of Nora Roberts books (literally, I read all the available titles) and I have NOT been disappointed. I recommend these books to anyone and everyone because the seamless mix of genres (mystery, suspense, romance, police procedure, science-fiction) means there's something in these books for all types!
In this book, newly married Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD and billionaire Roarke are interrupted on their off-planet honeymoon by an apparent suicide. A young engineer working on Roarke's new resort (where E&R were honeymooning) seems to have come home for the day, made a noose and hung himself. However, the look on his face, one of utter rapture, disturbs Eve.
Upon Eve's return to New York, two more apparent self-terminations occur, and after being present at one of them, Eve is quite sure that these are not what they seem. Eve is thrown into the world of virtual reality and mind control, where your own mind can become someone else's weapon. Eve is determined to find the murderer responsible for these deaths, but the closer she comes to the truth, the more danger she, and Roarke, are in!
As always, Robb's mystery is thrilling and fun. Eve and Roarke's romance continues to steam up the pages. Eve and Roarke are among my favourite couples of all time - Eve's reluctant tenderness, Roarke's utter devotion to his "Darling Eve" and the mind-numbing passion and life-altering love they share make them fascinating to observe. Getting to know Eve and Roarke has been a rewarding experience; one I plan to continue until there are no more books to read! This book is fantastic. So don't hesitate, buy the entire "In Death" series today (I'm up to book #10 and still am LOVING every one) - you won't regret it!
