When a crazed bomber sends taunting letters threatening the city NYPSD homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas loves, she races the clock to find the madman before he keeps his promise to wreak havoc on the corrupt masses. Can she find the bomber before her beloved New York City falls?

In this, the ninth in the “In Death” series, readers will be delighted to find the playful banter between Eve and Peabody is alive and well, offering them a humorous respite from the grittiness of the plot. With Eve working in a different department, readers get to see her in a bit of a different light as the determined bomber tries to destroy what is considered the city’s symbols of the rich. Although written long before the towers fell, today’s readers are likely to find the telling of this tale, with its suggestion of the towers as a possible target, serves as a sad harbinger of things to come.

As always, the relationships are a highlight of the narrative; Peabody and McNab are sure to keep readers chuckling while Eve and Roarke continue to build their lives together. There’s plenty for fans of the series to appreciate here, but those new to the series will find the story works well as a stand-alone.

Highly recommended. ( )

I would probably never catch up with this series but I don't mind because every time I pick up where I left off it's always a good fun read. ( )

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

Not only is there an unknown bomber in New York City, there is a formerly unheard of group sending teasing messages to Detective Eve Dallas. As things go from bad to worse, Eve scrambles to keep the city safe. Eve fights hard, and relies on sexy husband Roarke even more than ever. His technical skills are matched by no other and time is definitely of the essence.

I love this series! One of the things that captivates me is the way Eve is opening up to Roarke. It is bit by bit and equally sad and frustrating, while at the same time imminently rewarding. A dichotomy! Eve had a horrid past and being fully present for Roarke is taxing at times. The way J. D. Robb keeps this as part of the conflict in the story is done so remarkably well.

Peabody is front and center in this story. She is Eve's aide and they work together on every case. This time around, even with her professionalism, she manages to raise the ire of her boss. Peabody has gotten involved with McNab, another cop on the team. I enjoyed that distraction. Also, Eve's and Peabody's interactions are almost as fun as Eve's and Roarke's. Peabody is becoming one of my favorite characters in this series.

Let us not forget that this series is based in the middle of the 21st century. So the droids and other technology that are part of this story are definitely worth mentioning. Beyond the personal relationships, of course we have the mystery, danger and action. It never let up in this book.

There are fifty books in this amazing series, and Loyalty in Death is book nine. No matter how much I read every day, I cannot give this series the love and attention I wish. I will keep on reading as much as I can, and I am eager to read book ten, Witness in Death, as soon as reasonably possible. ( )

Eve works to save Peabody's brother from murder charges and save the city from terrorists bent on murder. Also a bit more on Peabody's relationships.
