In The Death Series by J.D. Robb, Vengeance In Death had me in such suspense. In this story, Eve the NY detective in the future of 2058, has to find a murderer who has targeted Roarke’s past friends in Ireland. In the last story we find out a lot about Summerset, Roarke’s butler and how his daughter was murdered at fourteen. Roarke got vengeance himself against those that took her innocent life. Now someone knows about Roarke’s past and people he had trusted are showing up dead in the most horrible ways mimicking the murders that Roarke had done. Who could it be? Will Eve find out before Roarke is the final victim?
Robb’s stories seem to build more making these characters more intriguing while adding some new ones. Maybe it’s me, but I felt there was more humor in this one than what I remember in the few previous novels. I even laughed out loud a few times. So with that in mind, I would say that this one in The Death Series had a great mixture of emotions that kept you from ever being bored. Not that any have ever bored me that she wrote, but this one you can see where her characters have developed more.
This is another great series to start if you haven’t already. I’ll be checking out the others soon.
