J D Robb - In Death series

Recommended Posts

Well, I got addicted to them when I didn't have much else to read. Plus, although the crime stories etc do get samey, what caught me was the development of the characters, especially Eve and Peabody. But they have certainly gone downhill recently.. as I said earlier, I get the feeling she's rushing books out too quickly.

And since here there is so much else to read!

Have to agree, Michelle. Just finished Born ID and I really missed hearing about all of the characters that surround Eve & Rourke. The crimes are becoming predictable and I fear Ms Roberts is relying on her formula more than her imagination.

 

Maybe you're right about her being to busy. The pressure of being known as so prolific a writer is causing a quantity vs quality war. We'll see, I suppose. Shame if it stays the same....so many "people" she can work with....some of the past problem people from earlier books could re-emerge. Maybe we should begin our own. :readingtwo:

I am also a huge fan of the In Death books and have read most of them, but i am having a hard time remebering which book it was that it was discovered that homeland security knew that Eve's father was molesting and abusing her, and they did nothing about it. i was just reading The Lost and it was brought up. I am not sure if I ever read the In Death book where this happened and was hopeful that someone could tell me which book it was. Thank you.

I think you're refering to "Missing in Death" , which is a novella in "The Lost"

Read the latest couple of the In Death Series and have found I'm enjoying the series again. J D Robb [aka Nora Roberts] has included more of the support characters and injected a bit of grit again.

I've just read Kindred In Death & Missing In Death (from The Lost) and I have Fantasy In Death in the TBR pile next to me. I got addicted to these books when I was in hospital a few years ago, they're my "guilty pleasure" reading :)

Just realised that I mis-read your post, and you were asking for the book that first tackled the homeland issue. Sorry for the hic-up. I think you'll find the title is "Divided in Death" :motz:
