Portrait in Death
Portrait in Death - J.D. Robb

This isn't exactly a review. I just wanted to mention a couple things that really pleased me about this book.

 

  • Roark finding out a bit more about his past, and his reaction to it, and then Eve and Summerset's reaction to his reaction. The always cool, unflappable Roark was shaken to his very core and to see him so off balance was really something.
  • Eve and Summerset. At best, their relationship can be described as prickly. But I've always felt that underneath it all that while they may not exactly like each other, there is a mutual respect there, and yes buried way down deep - caring. They'll never be best buddies, but still.

 

 

I used this book to fill the following square:

 

 

Book themes for International Human Rights Day: Read a book originally written in another language (i.e., not in English and not in your mother tongue), –OR– a book written by anyone not anglo-saxon, –OR– any story revolving around the rights of others either being defended or abused.
–OR– Read a book set in New York City, or The Netherlands (home of the U.N. and U.N. World Court respectively).

 

And I think I actually managed to fill a square on the actual day of the event.

Finished this in the wee early morning hours, and then spent pretty much the rest of my morning asleep.

Wonderment in Death by J.D. Robb
Wonderment in Death (In Death Series) - J.D. Robb,Susan Ericksen

A young woman walks into her brother's apartment, stabs him in the chest with a pair of shears, and jumps off the balcony. It looks like a regular murder/suicide, but people who knew the girl, keep repeating she wouldn't hurt her brother, so it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to figure out what happened.


This is one of those short stories/novellas, you wish were turned into a full-length novel. There was just so much there to explore, from the Alice in Wonderland theme to the possibility of mind-control through drugs and suggestion.
Add to it a deliciously mad villain and you get quite a potent combination.

The way it played out, on the other hand, came across as slightly rushed and pretty lucky investigation-wise. Still, a pretty solid story with the always solid cast.
