Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Seasoned author Nora Roberts, writing as Robb, delivers another exhilarating entry in her popular futuristic cop series featuring Eve Dallas (Seduction in Death, etc.). Dallas, a New York police lieutenant, is a hard-bitten warrior cop who buries the pain and anger of her early childhood by excelling on the job. In her latest adventure, all the usual suspects are back: Eve's charismatic husband, Roarke; her plucky assistant, Peabody; and hipster techno-geek McNab. For this round, their objective is to take down a woman Eve arrested 10 years ago, a poisoner named Julianna Dunne. Julianna's out on parole, and now rich old men are dying sudden deaths. What's more, the ex-con wants to exact a little revenge on her one-time adversary. Eve's search for Dunne takes her all over the country, and eventually to Dallas, Tex., the city that gave her both her name and a legacy of violent nightmares. This is a satisfying, well-paced novel that offers readers a little of everything sex, death, family drama and well-orchestrated chase scenes. Although Robb's plot is tight and suspenseful, the real pleasure here comes from watching Eve struggle to maintain her distance from others, even as she finds herself tied ever more closely to her friends and family by the bonds of love. (Mar. 5)Forecast: It's a given that Roberts's books will grace the bestseller charts, but a stylish cover image depicting a ghostly, Manhattan subway entrance may attract new readers.

From Library Journal

The most recent chapter of Robb's popular series features Lt. Eve Dallas facing a recently released murderer back to get even. Early in her career, Eve testified against Julianna Dunn, and, during her incarceration, Julianna has been planning how to confuse, humiliate, and ultimately destroy her. This violent reunion begins with the poisoning of middle-aged, wealthy men in seemingly innocuous circumstances on Eve's New York City beat and soon looks like it will culminate with the killing of her husband, Roark. Disconcerting houseguests, a tense visit into Eve's childhood in the city of Dallas, and a comic scene searching for clues in the New York underworld add to the plot and give reader Susan Ericksen the opportunity to charm the listener thoroughly. Her reading is full of color: her accent, pitch, and pacing all add to the listening experience and make this one difficult tape to pause. Recommended for popular collections.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In the summer of 2059, Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in the New York Police Security Department, believes it's going to be a crime-ridden season. She is assigned to the homicide of Walter Petibone, a wealthy and prosperous elderly man, who was poisoned at his birthday party in his own home. After Eve eliminates all the obvious suspects like the trophy wife, the ex-wife, and the grown children, she finds evidence that the killer was Julianna Dunne.

Unlike most of Eve's other cases, this time she knows the suspect and managed to have Julianna incarcerated for nine years for killing her three husbands. The serial spouse murderer is determined to make Eve pay now that she's free. Julianna stays one step ahead of Eve's pursuit, just waiting for the right moment to take her ultimate revenge. She intends to kill Eve's beloved husband Roarke.

Unlike all of the other books in J.D. Robb's "Death" series, the in REUNION IN DEATH is up close and personal for the heroine. This makes her step out of character and lose her objectivity that places her in deadly situations on more than one occasion. Though the villain is so obsessed with revenge that seems unreal at times, J.D. Robb shows the character's flaws and frailties of her heroine, which make the tale and Julianna more believable. Fans will not be disappointed with this latest entry.

A good read, as all the books of the "In Death" series are. A killer is scaring New York City, but the real target is Roarke, because of Eve. Roarke butts his way into the investigation against Eve's wishes and refuses the police protection she would offer. Eve uncovers more of her past. Feeny, Peabody and McNabb are present. Charles and Louise show up. Dr. Mira talks to Eve. The killer is stopped (missing the usual bloodbath this time, but that's okay, it's nice to see people go to trial once in a while).
If it wasn't part of a series this book would probably fare better, but we've seen most of this before. It's time for the stories to move on. I won't be buying the next book as soon as it comes out, will wait my turn at the public library, because it's just not as great as the series promised to be. This book does not seem that different from the recent ones, the progression of Eve's relationships and emotional state just aren't as gripping as the first 5 or 6 times we read about them. Actually, maybe I won't even read the next one unless it promises to be the last.

I buy each J.D. Robb paperback as soon as it comes out and find the futuristic stories about Eve Dallas, Robb's tough female cop to be truly engaging.
The villain of this tale is a woman Eve has faced before, and she is identified quickly, but is not so easy to catch! I really enjoyed the final confrontation between Julianna and Eve,
loved meeting Peabody's warm hearted parents, and found the bit about Eve visiting the wide open spaces of Texas very funny! A really terrific subplot involves Eve giving Peabody her own case, and teaching and delegating in a way that gives Peabody just the right amount of independence. Eve Dallas, repeating the pattern taught by her own mentor....
Not enough Mavis or Nadine in the novel, and Robb backs off of the Charles/Laura relationship, and a little bit off McNab/Peabody that were introduced in prior books. I think the books need more of their support.
This book completes the first year cycle of Eve's marriage to Roarke, as they celebrate their anniversary, and we can hope that Robb will not grow tired of her feisty lieutenant before their second anniversary.
Definitely worth buying!

As some may have noticed from my other reviews of this series, I'm not reading them exactly in order. I read 4 from the middle of the series in order, with some skips, then picked up 4 more and put them in chronological order. I read Purity -- then Reunion and Portrait, bracketing Purity.
Hey, folks -- I do seriously recommend nabbing this series as a set and reading them in their proper order. There's a major story-arc involving the two main characters, Lt. Eve Dallas and a financier named Roarke, and piecing their story together is not nearly as enjoyable as reading it straight forward.
However, each book does stand alone as a Police Procedural Mystery. And the Mysteries are solidly plotted and well turned at the end. There's enough background of previous books so you can read out of context without being bewildered.
The third element in these novels that makes them of primary interest to me is that they are set in 2050's and beyond, where Earth has business interests on other planets. I so far have not read a story where Eve goes offplanet with Roarke, but I saw a reference to such a visit.
But I don't have much hope for that novel because of the short-shrift given the third element in this series.
That third element is the weakest part of these novels, and if futurology matters to you, skip this series.
The author has not done the sf novelists' mental work -- extrapolation, or "What if ..." So the series as a whole does not make a solid, well developed argument for future history taking a particular track. The kick an sf reader looks for in a near-future novel just isn't there.
There are bits and pieces of what looks "futuristic" but isn't really.
