At the luxurious Roarke Palace Hotel, a maid walks into suite 4602 for the nightly turndown -- and steps into her worst nightmare. A killer leaves her dead, strangled by a thin silver wire. He's Sly Yost, a virtuoso of music and murder. A hit man for the elite. Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows him well. But in this twisted case, knowing the killer doesn't help solve the crime. Because there's someone else involved. Someone with a more personal motive. And Eve must face a terrifying possibility -- that the real target may, in fact, be her husband Roarke?… (mer)

The murder of a maid at Roarke’s Palace Hotel puts NYPSD homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas in the midst of a case in which she knows the killer, a hit man for the elite. But catching Sly Yost may be more complicated that Eve expects since there’s someone else involved . . . someone who has a sinister motive and may be targeting Roarke.

And the candy thief strikes again!

Twelfth in the “In Death” series, has some gritty moments as the team tracks down the killer. As the story progresses, the slowly-unfolding plot leads to the motive behind the murder and here the intrigue is not in identifying the culprit but in the process of capturing him. The now-expected witty dialogue, sprinkled throughout the telling of the tale, offers a bit of humor along with the revealing insights into each of the characters. Friendships continue to grow in the character-driven narrative and the strong sense of place anchors the story.

There are some unexpected twists as the story unfolds, but astute readers will identify Roarke’s nemesis before the reveal. There’s sufficient backstory for readers new to the series, and, as always, the relationships between the characters remains one of the highlights of the series. Readers, both returning and new, will find much to appreciate in this suspenseful addition to the “In Death’ canon.

Highly recommended. ( )

The In Death series is one of my favorites. Eve has such a tragic past but it's made her an amazing homicide detective. And, it puts her in the path of Roarke, a multi-billionaire and sexy as hell. She's the cop. He's the robber turning over a new and lucrative leaf. Together they are explosively sexy and a great team for fighting crime! ( )

Someone has hired a killer to get under Rourke's skin, Eve and her team have to find the assassin and figure out who hired him. The killer beats and rapes his victims before killing them, if your sensitive to those things this may be a hard read for you.

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. ( )
