Thankless in Death (In Death, #37)
Thankless in Death (In Death, #37) - J.D. Robb [11/29/13]
The last couple installments in this series that I read seemed somehow less -- as if maybe the author was getting tired of the series. But that wasn't true of this one. It was also a little different than the norm of the series (if there is one).

This one could almost be subtitled "The Making of a Serial Killer" because the action follows a single man who almost accidentally makes his first kill and discovers he likes it, then sets out to explore this new activity. Eve Dallas is sharp as ever in tracking the perp, but still has trouble keeping up with him.

An enjoyable detective story, as always, with plenty of personal action in the lives of Eve and Roarke, including one surprise.

Review (two-fer!) - Thankless in Death, Concealed in Death
Thankless in Death - J.D. Robb
Concealed in Death - J.D. Robb

Two more slightly predictable but very enjoyable installments in JD Robb's in Death series.  I mostly read these for the non-case related scenes and I suspect I'm not alone!

 

I love Eve's relationship with Roarke, the vulnerability she only shows to him and the constant wonderment she experiences when examining her feelings for him.  I get supreme kicks out of almost every scene with Peabody and their friendly bickering. Every cop on her squad, Nadine, Summerset, even Galahad (that fat cat!) make me smile. I guess these are the reason I'm still sticking with this series even after 38 books!  The cases are a bit predictable but some new characters introduced in CiD are giving at least the procedural aspect a wisp of fresh air.

 

I'm almost all caught up now, one more to go and I'll be ready for the first 2015 release.

Thankless in Death (In Death, #37) - J.D. Robb Love Eve and Roarke as always. I would have been happier with a little less time in the killer and victims heads, but I think that's a personal squick. I can see the value of the scenes for moving the story and evoking fear and compassion respectively.
