Seduction in Death
In Death, Book #13
By J.D. Robb
Review brought to you by OBS staff member Heidi
Seduction in Death is the 13th installment of Nora Robert’s futuristic In Death series written under her pen name J.D. Robb. It features police lieutenant Eve Dallas and her sexy rich husband, Roarke.
In this installment Eve is faced with a couple of murderers that are nothing more than overindulgent rich boys. They are best friends playing a game of meeting unsuspecting girls they meet in online chat rooms and then drugging them with strong date rape drugs, one of which isn’t even in normal distribution because it’s so expensive to make. The pair have devised a point system to rate their adventures and the loser must pay up, a dollar a point. It started out being a game to sleep with the most women, but when the first woman is accidentally killed the game becomes much more sinister.
I really liked this installment. The futuristic aspect is barely there so it’s a good installment for those that are wary of it.
I thought it was interesting being introduced to the killers so early in the book and being able to understand them so well (Even if they are whacked!!). Not to mention knowing whether Eve was on the right track or not in her investigation.
Roarke and Eve were great together in this one. They had some tender moments, not to mention their usual hot sex!
I loved seeing the jealous and protective side of McNab when he discovered Charles was no longer interested in Peabody. I’m glad that he and Peabody are finally going to try to be an item and quit pining for each other from afar. I love both the characters and think that only good things can follow. And Eve’s disgust at them is also always fun.
“You don’t need to diet, She-Body. You are a just-right female.”
“McNab?” Eve said.
“It’s all right, Dallas. We’re a couple.”
“A couple of what? No, don’t tell me. Don’t talk to me. Don’t talk to each other. Let there be silence across the land.”
Overall, this was another great fun read that any In Death fan will enjoy.
