It seems like with every novel, I say that it is the darkest book yet in the In Death series. That trend holds once again with Betrayal in Death. I've concluded that any story that touches on Roarke's past is bound to be dark. In this twelfth book in the series, we not only learn more about his past but also meet some of his friends from that era. It's quite the discovery, and his friends were quite the characters.

I love that we see Eve taking care of Roarke for once. To me, it is a turning point in their relationship as it shows she recognizes that she needs to give as much as she gets. The other thing I enjoyed about Betrayal in Death is watching Roarke and Eve work together professionally. They've always collaborated, but it is the first time we see Roarke openly welcomed into one of Eve's investigations. I see it corroborating the idea that they are a tremendous couple, perfect for each other in every way.

Seriously, Susan Erickson can do no wrong as the In Death narrator. I love her voices. I love her performance. She captures Eve so much better than I ever could. Plus, I am especially fond of her Roarke. The combination of Ms. Robb and Ms. Erickson is as good as it gets. ( )

Took a million books to get to one in which Eve is not a horrible person. Finally. ( )

Betrayal in Death
4.5 Stars

Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas's latest case hits particularly close to home when a vicious assassin begins targeting Roarke's employees. The investigation is further compounded when the FBI attempts to take over and the true motive for the crimes is revealed.

Even though the identity of the killer is revealed early on, this is still one of the most exciting and action packed books in the series mainly due to the exceedingly dark and gritty depiction of the murders and the fact that the villain is truly insidious and malevolent.

In addition to the mystery, there are some compelling character developments when a friend from Roarke's past arrives on scene. The dynamic between the two not only provides some intriguing insight into the enigmatic billionaire, but also exposes a potential conflict of interest with Eve.

Peabody and McNab's romance also hits a snag although this one has been a long time coming. While Peabody is a favorite of mine, it must be said that she has not handled the situation at all well, and McNab's reactions are more than justified.

The love/hate banter between Eve and Summerset is another highlight, and he is all the more endearing for the small gestures that show his growing affection for "Roarke's cop".

In sum, definitely one of the darker and more subdued installments perhaps due to the monstrous nature of the crimes and the relationship issues. Nevertheless, it is an excellent addition to the series and I look forward to reading the next one. ( )

Listening to the audiobook. This one wasn't my favorite starting out. It was kind of slow. But now that everything is coming together, it's getting exciting to see how Eve solves it all.

Such funny sniping between McNab and Peabody in this. ( )
