Found alone on the streets as a child, Eve Dallas has built a new identity and a new future as a cop. Now the hard-edged and coolheaded detective fights for truth and justice, but she still has one very human weakness-enigmatic Irish billionaire, Roarke. And when a trusted employee of Roarke Enterprises is a suspect in a double-homicide, Roarke comes to Eve for help. Reva Ewing was a former member of the Secret Service, and now a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises-until she was found standing over the dead bodies of her husband, renowned artist Blair Bissel, and her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there was more to the killing than jealous rage-all of Bissel's computer files were deliberately corrupted. To Roarke, it's the computer attack that poses the real threat. He and Reva have been under a code-red government contract to develop a program that would shield against techno-terrorists. But this deadly new breed of hackers isn't afraid to kill to protect their secret-and it's up to Lieutenant Eve Dallas to shut them down before the nightmare can spread to the whole country.… (mer)

Divided in Death is the eighteenth book of the popular In Death Series, featuring Lt. Eve Dallas. Former Secret Service agent, Reva Ewing, left the service to become a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises, owned by Eve's billionaire husband. When Reva is found standing over the dead bodies of her husband and his mistress, she definitely looks guilty. Because Reva was integral to one of his highly classified Code Red Projects for Homeland Security, there's now a danger to Roarke's business. Roarke is convinced of Reva's innocence and persuades Dallas to help him prove it.

When Roarke is personally involved in one of Dallas' cases, it's always cause for trouble. When he illegally hacks into Homeland Security, he also discovers that Homeland knew about Eve's situation in Dallas when she was a child. He wants to find those responsible and kill them, even though it is something she doesn't want. This causes such a terrible rift between them, so much so that they barely speak to each other.

I'm slowly making my way through the entire series and I'm so glad I still have lots more ahead of me. Eve can be annoying but I really love the relationship she and Roarke have. The love and romance between these two extremely independent characters is sexy without being explicit. The secondary characters, especially Dallas' partner, Detective Peabody, are also exceptional. It's a great series to read when you want to relax and enjoy a good police procedural. Divided in Death was one of my favorite books in the series and I'm anxiously looking forward to the next one.

Blair Bissel’s wife, Reva Ewing, discovers the bodies of the acclaimed artist and his mistress Felicity Kade. Felicity had been her best friend before Reva discovered the affair; now she stands accused of the murders, a situation that drives a wedge between Eve and Roarke. Reva, the wronged wife, was a Security Specialist for Roarke Enterprises but it appears that jealous rage drove her to Felicity’s house. It was there that she stood over the bodies . . . with a knife in her hand.

New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas believes there’s something more at play when she discovers that all of Bissel’s computer files were intentionally corrupted. While Eve focuses on the murder, Roarke is concerned with the computer attack since he and Reva had a Code Red government contract to develop a program to shield computers against techno-terrorists known as the Doomsday Group.

Can Eve stop the computer hackers’ virus before their murderous rampage can continue?

In this, the eighteenth book in the “In Death” series, all the familiar characters are in place. The strong sense of place anchors the telling of the tale, but the conflict between Eve and Roarke lies at the heart of this story. There are the requisite humorous moments between Eve and Peabody, the cast of familiar characters making an as-expected appearance in the telling of the tale. Readers will find much to appreciate in this unputdownable narrative that’s filled with the tension and suspense generated by Eve and Roarke.

Highly recommended. ( )

One of Rourke's security employee's is framed for murder and lands Eve and Rourke into way more than they bargained for. More info on Eve's childhood is discovered and causes a rift between her and Rourke. Another good read in this series.

This is probably one of my favorites in the series, and, if I'm being honest, I didn't think it would be. I knew going in that there was going to be a big "Issue-with-a-capital-I" between Eve and Roarke, and I didn't want to read it. Even though I knew it'd all be alright in the end.

But, I did, and ended up loving it. Stayed up past my bedtime last night to finish it.

A cheating husband and his lover are found brutally murdered. The man was married to an employee of Roarke's. She immediately comes under suspicion, but both Eve and Roarke believe she's innocent. In the course of their (Eve's and Roarke's) investigation, information is discovered about Eve's heartbreaking past. What to do with that information is where the division between Eve and Roarke begins. And this, to me, is the heart of the story.

I like that while they were both angry and hurt, and confused and unsure as to how to resolve their differences, you never once doubt their complete and total love for each other. And the resolution, when it did come? I will admit to getting teary eyed and then rereading it once more after I got home from work today. ( )

This was pretty good. I liked reading the issues between Eve and Roarke; it shows that they are far from perfect. It made me hope for a good, and realistic, resolution and I think it was accomplished. I also enjoyed the mystery, even though I guessed an aspect of it. 4.5 stars ( )
