Possession in Death by J.D. Robb
Possession in Death - J.D. Robb

A blood-covered woman stumbles into the street in the exact moment Lieutenant Eve Dallas is driving by. While she tries to stop the flow of blood, the woman asks her to help her find her missing granddaughter, Beata, and "let her in", before dying. But the TOD shows the woman died three hours before, and Eve is suddenly developing strange symptoms...She sees and talks to the dead, she speaks Russian and Hungarian, and she knows how to make borscht...It looks like she did let something in and is now sharing her body with a dead Romani woman.


Sure, it was short, yet it packed quite a punch. There was just the right amount of story to keep things interesting, to keep the brain engaged in the investigation, and to keep the tempo up.

The plot picks up where the previous book left off (I thought it was strange we didn't get the epilogue with the picnic at the end of Indulgence), with Eve coming home on the Saturday after interrogating the man who tried to kill her, and straight into the get-together she organized to keep Morris's spirits up.
She's giving Father Chale López a lift to his church, when the first victim of the day falls in her lap (figuratively) speaking, and even though it all happens in the matter of a day, it didn't read overcrowded or over-complicated.

It was just right, with the added pinch of paranormal to liven things up just a bit.

Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb
Indulgence in Death - J.D. Robb

Helping solve the murder while on vacation might not be the norm for Lieutenant Eve Dallas, but it's nothing compared to what she must deal with when she returns home. A limo driver shot with a crossbow, a high-class LC stabbed through the heart with an old bayonet, a chef speared with a harpoon...It smells like thrill-killing for the spoiled and the rich, those born with a silver spoon in their mouth...

Disregard for life pisses Eve off, but this time the piss-off factor is off the charts, and she'll do anything to make the killer (or killers) stop.


I'm glad to see that after a few iffy past installments, this series is back on track.

I loved this story; the drama, the danger, the tempo and pace, the intrigue, and the game of cat and mouse the indulgent played with our favorite cop. It was a little sickening, but it still pulled me in right from the start (with that rather innocuous first DB), and made me want to be able to read faster to see what happened next.
I liked the fact all the participants knew who the killer was, knew the sickening motive behind the killings, so we were all on the same page during the investigation, trying to find the clues that would make the case stick and put the killer where they belong.

Intense and gripping, filled with drama, rife with twists, with the tempo increasing toward the finish line, this one was one heck of a story.

12 Days of Death Note: Finis
Death Note, Vol. 13: How to Read - Tsugumi Ohba, Takeshi Obata,Eric Searleman,Akira Shiwawa

In the end it ends like they always said it would. So no big surprises, but to be honest I was a little bit underwhelmed. It had built up to a great big finale, and while there is a finale, I felt like it could have been a bit more.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the series and would recommend it.

Death Note, Vol. 11: Kindred Spirit - Tsugumi Ohba,Takeshi Obata

The penultimate volume. You can feel the plot starts to thicken but at the same time there is still quite some filler. On the one hand, by now I feel ready to finish the series, on the other hand I will miss it when it's done.

12 Days of Death Note: Deletion
Death Note, Vol. 10: Deletion - Tsugumi Ohba,Takeshi Obata

I had completely deleted Mikami in my memory for some reason. Guess he deserved it.

The story is nearing its end, and you can feel it. Two more books to go. Brace yourself for the last and final battle...
