Meet the Author:

With a phenomenal career full of bestsellers, Nora Roberts was ready for a new writing challenge. As her agent put it, like Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and caffeine-free Pepsi, a pseudonym offered her the opportunity to reach a new and different group of readers. The first futuristic suspense J. D. Robb book, Naked in Death, was published in paperback in 1995, and readers were immediately drawn to Eve Dallas, a tough cop with a dark past, and her even more mysterious love interest, Roarke.

The series quickly gained attention, great reviews, and devoted readers. Since the debut of Loyalty in Death (the ninth In Death book) on Halloween 1999 on the New York Times bestseller list, every J. D. Robb title has been a New York Times bestseller. While fans had their suspicions, it wasn’t until the twelfth book in the series, Betrayal in Death (2001), that the publisher fully revealed that J. D. Robb was a pseudonym for bestselling powerhouse Nora Roberts. Unmasked, Nora Roberts fans who hadn’t yet picked up one of the Robb books were quickly playing catch-up.

Robb’s peers in the mystery world are fans as well, with accolades for the In Death series from such blockbuster authors as Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, Dennis Lehane, Kathy Reichs, Lisa Scottoline, Janet Evanovich, David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, Robert B. Parker, Ridley Pearson, Linda Fairstein, and Andrew Gross.

The In Death books are perpetual bestsellers, and frequently share the bestseller list with other Nora Roberts novels. J. D. Robb publishes two hardcover In Death books per year, with the occasional stand-alone original In Death story featured in an anthology.

Forty books later, there is no end in sight for the ever-popular In Death series.

CORINA’S REVIEW

 

There is no doubt about it! JD ROBB is a master storyteller. After 46 novels, she still amazes, stuns, captivates, and spellbinds each and every time. As the alter ego of Nora Roberts, she is known for her prolific writing, and gripping plots.

I personally look forward to each new book in this series. So far, even after reading 46 books, almost the entire catalogue written by JD Robb, I have not come to the point yet where I feel her stories have become repetitive. Every single In Death installment, has been pure genius!

In Dark in Death, Lieutenant Dallas, of the New York PD, is hunting a killer that uses someone else’s imagination, stories, books for their own personal playing field. As always the mystery is on point, vibrant, and meticulously executed. The suspense and race against time left me on the edge of my seat. And the premise of murdering individuals by virtue of a book series made this case even more exhilarating.

This series is beyond amazing and deserves an award.

Not only for its outstanding plots, which are always incredibly well researched, unputdownable, and utterly engrossing, but also for the cast of characters. In all honesty, this cast is the BEST cast of all books I’ve ever read.

From the two main characters to each and every one of the supporting cast. After 46 books, every single member of her family, friends and colleagues are near and dear to my heart. I couldn’t imagine an In Death book without them.

Eve, is one of the most layered and skillful characters I have ever read about. Her character development throughout this series has left me amazed. She is one tough woman, incredibly hard working, no nonsense with a heart made of gold. The way she takes care of her department, friends and family is what makes these novels so excellent and extraordinary. She is the glue that holds it all together. She is the sun that everyone revolves around.


Roarke, a former irish thief, now billionaire, is used to toeing the grey areas without remorse, now he is happily working with Eve side by side solving murder cases. He has become a crucial part of her team. Roarke is respected by her colleagues, admired and revered by New York high society, and the only person that Eve opens up entirely. On the outside, he is the exact opposite of Eve, smooth, polished, rich, cultured, but deep down they found an equal and a missing part in each other.

I can say with absolute conviction that Eve and Roarke have the most incredible romance of all romances.

No other book series allows the couple to grow, change, and fall deeper in love over more than 40 books. The depth of feeling, understanding, and communication between Roarke and Eve is beyond comparison. They truly have the ultimate relationship. Far from perfect, but perfect nevertheless.

But it’s not just about the Lieutenant and her Billionaire. It’s also about the recurring characters that give life, color, and laughter to each book. The supporting cast is a delight because every single cast member has a unique personality and distinctive voice. The various relationships, ongoing inside jokes as well as side stories, feel real. Like friends that are missed and visited twice a year. The reader is part of an ongoing story arc. I’m invested in each and every person from this cast. I know them by name, their likes and dislikes, backstories and bits and pieces of their personal life’s. Their individual personalities enrich each book, and allow for the ultimate reading experience.

If you love fantastic character development, romantic suspense and are a fan of serials, this series is a MUST READ!!!

It was a stab in the dark.

On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her death was anything but fictional.

Then, as Eve Dallas puzzles over a homicide that seems carefully planned and yet oddly personal, she receives a tip from an unexpected source: an author of police thrillers who recognizes the crime—from the pages of her own book. Dallas doesn’t think it’s coincidence, since a recent strangulation of a sex worker resembles a scene from her writing as well. Cops look for patterns of behavior: similar weapons, similar MOs. But this killer seems to find inspiration in someone else’s imagination, and if the theory holds, this may be only the second of a long-running series.

The good news is that Eve and her billionaire husband Roarke have an excuse to curl up in front of the fireplace with their cat, Galahad, reading mystery stories for research. The bad news is that time is running out before the next victim plays an unwitting role in a murderer’s deranged private drama—and only Eve can put a stop to a creative impulse gone horribly, destructively wrong.

    1. Thank you so much!!! I think anyone that is still reading this series after 46 books is on the same wavelength. 😉 we love the characters first and foremost. This series is something special, and I hoped it would come across.;-)

      1. That’s exactly how I feel! 😘
        I even read the series twice from bk1 to 30 I think. Then after that, I reread from 30 to the latest book every now and then. I think I’ve read Treachery ID at least 8 times lol. I just miss Eve and Roarke and all the other characters so much sometimes. They are so special, yes. 😍

        1. OMG!! You are killing me!!! I’m waiting to reread the entire series for the moment she writes the last book, whenever that might be, hopefully nowhere soon. The only series i ever reread devotedly is Kate Daniels by Ikone Andrews. I must have read that one 8 times all together.;-)

              1. Yeah. I don’t feel like Eve and Roarke are ready for kids yet. Remember when Eve lost her badge and Roarke was trying to get her to snap back and he said how they should be thinking about kids now and you could have knocked Eve off with a feather she was so shocked!
                Eve still has to heal more from her past. Ah, my heart broke for her in New York To Dallas.
                Still, even when down the long, long road they have kids, I’d like more books after to see how they cope with parenthood, especially Eve with her demanding career.

                1. New York to Dallas was amazing. But you can see how awkward she is with small kids. She doesn’t have the mother vibe, at least not yet, but I could see her having foster kids. Older kids for her to be a role model rather than a mother figure. She is such an amazing character.

                  1. Yes, you’re right. Look how she is with Jamie and the little girl from Survivor In Death. Besides, I think J.D. Robb should judge when it feels like the right time for kids. I don’t want her to stop the series. Eve is my idol. 😍

                    1. It astonishes me how many people write to her with ideas and suggestions, even demand I imagine. People are never satisfied 😳

                    2. Ikr! I saw it on her blog. Some even came up with ideas where Roarke got kidnapped. Seriously? Haven’t they read the books? Don’t they know Roarke would kick ass? 😬

                    3. Lol – right? I really like Dark in Death so much because it was connected to the literary world. Those letters 😳 Crazy fans everywhere!
