I can’t believe we’re at the forty-sixth book in the series and it hasn’t begun to be repetitive or stale. Each new book is as interesting and exciting as all those that came before it! As each new release approaches, I promise myself I’ll read it in stages and savor each section – but – when the release occurs – I devour it – in one sitting. I’m so ashamed ….
I always purchase these books with the Whispersync option because I absolutely LOVE Susan Eriksen as the narrator. Her range is phenomenal and she makes you believe whatever emotion she’s conveying. It is worth listening just to hear her say “Darlin’ Eve” as Roarke. Goodness, she does them well!
Each mystery is new and interesting. They are well plotted and excellently written. The suspense builds and builds until the final climactic moment when the killer is caught. Eve Dallas is a no-nonsense cop who always ‘Stands for the Dead’. When someone is murdered, no matter how despicable they are, they belong to Eve and she will stand for them and find their murderer.
Then, there is Roarke. He’s a reformed thief, a gazillionaire and Eve’s husband. Then, you add drop-dead gorgeous with a lilting Irish accent and you definitely have a drool factor. I just love how much Eve and Roarke love each other and I am so happy I’ve gotten to watch that love grow and mature since the first book.
Someone is killing people in New York in New York City. This time, they are following the murders in a set of police procedural novels – but – they are slightly re-writing them. The changes are small and subtle, but they are different none-the-less. The murderer is changing the mistakes that the book murderer made that allowed him/her to be caught. Can Eve catch them before they go through the entire series and begin writing their own plots? It will take Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNab and the rest of the crew to figure it out and solve the crime(s).
If you want a want a wonderful series to read, this one should be at the top of your list! It is filled with humor – Eve can really butcher some of those ‘old sayings’ we all hear every day. You’ll be intrigued by all of the gadgets and lifestyles in the book – there are some really cool things there – like an AutoChef that you program for the meals you want.
