Seduction in Death

In Death Series bk 13

Hard-boiled detective Eve Dallas and a quirky cast of characters, including Eve’s husband, Roarke, who owns most of Manhattan and can be relied upon to bring all his considerable resources to bear to help his wife solve the case whether she wants him to or not, and Peabody, Eve’s uptight assistant, who has an off-again, on-again thing going with the irreverent Officer McNab.

Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars.

Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed — a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn’t intended to kill her. But now that he had, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt. Or start hunting again…

REVIEW: I decided recently to re read this series. When I got to this book I honestly couldn’t it. However as I started to read certain things came back to me, and I remembered that I actually liked this book, at least the story within the story. This is one where I was more interested in what was going on with the supporting characters in this book, than the actual murder mystery.

However all that being said this was a really good book. It had an angle/twist that I had never seen before. I can’t say much more than that or it will give it away.

For those that like this type of book, and love J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts books, this is one that you shouldn’t skip over, if not for the actual story than for the sub-story, as their are things that happen that explain relationships in the series.

This book was read as part of the Spring ’09 Reading Challenge. Read a Series or a Trilogy.
368 pages..

I give this book a 4 out 5.
