In hardcover for the first time, here is the novel that started it all-the first book in J. D. Robb's number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series, featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.
It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion.
When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation
I fell in loe with this book right away. I love thrillers/mysterys and I loved Roarke. I was shocked at the direction those interactions went and I enjoyed the small glimpses into Roarke's thoughts. It's a short read with much progress. Maybe too much much progress. But it stands out for that reason as well. As a diehard Stephanie Plum fan who is frustrated with the lack of progress, I loved that this series doesn't suffer from that particular problem. I can tell already. I didn't think the futuristic element added too much but it certainly didn't take anything away. Maybe it will in future books. I picked out the murderer right away but it didn't bother me. I didn't see some of the other surprising parts though.
I plan to continue this series for sure, but it is old and I'm assuming most of you have heard of it and/or made up your mind on whether to try it. So should I review them here? Is anyone interested? I usually don't hesitate to read and review older books but this is a long series. Is that tedious?
