Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she’s been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she’s taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn’t just “one of us.” Dallas’s friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine’s squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve’s husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman’s life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts. The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine’s guns, badge, and a note from her killer: “You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I’ll be sending yours to somebody else.” But Eve Dallas doesn’t take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that’s a promise.

I will remember Promises in Death. Not just b...

4.0 Promises in Death
This book was a rather poignant look at losing a fellow police officer. The mystery was not that original, but extremely engaging. There were a few unexpected twists that I enjoyed and I also enjoyed the minor peeks into "dressing Eve". It also gave us a deeper look at both Eve herself and Chief ...

4.0 Promises in Death [J.D. Robb]
{Spoilers)We already know the victim in this book. Not very well, but she is known to us, the readers and Eve. That made this case harder then many of the others. Not only does Eve have to tell next of kin someone they love is dead, but she has to tell Morris that the woman he loved had been murdere...
