Vengeance in Death

It is 2058 as Vengeance in Death begins and Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is wrapping up her latest case in New York. She thinks she is done for the day and is looking forward to going home to Roarke and a weekend off. That is until the strange phone call comes in on her tele-link. The caller claims to have been blessed by God and therefore quite justifiably killed a sinner. He offers his religious viewpoint of the world, before and after he gives her a riddle to solve for the location of his victim.

It does not take Eve and her assistant, Officer Peabody, long to solve the riddle. Once they arrive on scene, they are smugly assured by the doorman that everything is absolutely fine and that Thomas Brennen is away from his penthouse suite. Not willing to take the guy’s word for anything, Lieutenant Dallas convinces the doorman to take them up to the penthouse. It is clear when the door is opened that death is in the air. They gradually work their way into the suite and soon find a scene of incredible carnage. It might be the worst scene Lieutenant Dallas has ever come across and she has seen quite a few bad scenes.

She is going to see more really bad scenes in the coming hours as she chases an elusive killer in Vengeance in Death. One who clearly is taking the lives of others as he works closer and closer to Roarke. As has happened before in this series, Roarke's past is another problem to work around in the read that is part police procedural, part romantic suspense, and all very complicated.

All the usual caveats apply in this sixth book of the long running series. Head hopping still occurs as do numerous tropes common in the mystery field. At the same time, the reads are enjoyable and pass quickly as readers are reminded that guns are outlawed, but murders still occur in NYC. The result is another entertaining read.

Brace for some pretty nice character development. Brace for some ghosts come back to haunt Eve and Roarke, this time from Roarke's past. Brace for another person close to Eve to be drawn into her work as a suspect.

As always, Roberts gives us another delicious crime romance that is wonderfully written and leaves you eagerly flipping the page for more.

In terms of critiques, I won't reinterate what I (as well as others) have already said for the previous books. Just that there is, if you bother to look for it, a pattern to Eve's stories. And because it's a mature romantic crime series, there seems to always be a moment when Eve is come on to by the criminal or caught in dire straights by them. Though it never fails to entertain when Eve whoops ass. ( )

In Death 06
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
A truly creepy murderer haunts the streets of New York City. He stalks his victim, bedevils the police with enigmatic riddles without enough time for them to save the life of his quarry, and visits unimaginable torture on his victims. With two victims tied to a decade-old secret, can NYPSD's homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas find the madman before Roarke becomes his next victim?

Sixth in the “In Death” series, this narrative moves some of its focus to characters who have remained on the fringe in previous stories. Here the revelations regarding Summerset’s past give a depth to the character and add to the telling of the tale, keeping the story fresh and intriguing. As always, there’s a murder for Eve to solve and a culprit to capture, but this time the killing is gritty and brutal . . . and the perpetrator is threatening her husband. Readers will find it difficult to set this one aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended. ( )
