    The author was in top form when she wrote this one. Eve and Roarke have been married nearly one year and their relationship is pretty near perfect. They joke around, fight a bit but usually playfully and they have each others backs. Peabody and McNab are on and off all through the book but again there is a lot of humour in the situations that occur between them. And of course Eve's opinions on the matter are hilarious.We see a gentle side of Summerset, quite a lot of the apparently over weight Galahad and there is even a mention of the Candy Thief. Will we ever find out who that is?This episode is not a mystery. The murderers are known to the reader from the start and it is fascinating to watch Eve and her team work their way towards their own discovery of their identities. Altogether this was a very satisfying book, full of some of Robb's best quotes and such an entertaining read.

    4 I Love A Good Mystery StarsI love these books! They are interesting and fast paced and although Eve does what cops all over the world do in reality, which is investigate, not going around beating up guys until someone talks, the books manage not to become tedious.And although I love the mystery suspect of the books, I enjoy watching Eve work, I find her fear of primping hilarious and I always have a good laugh with Peabody's and McNab's antics, there is one aspect of the book that is beginning to wear itself thin.I'm not insensitive to the trauma Eve's past has left behind but I'm starting to get fed up with all the drama. I'm not saying that she HAS to get over it, it's obviously something you don't get over easily. But I would prefer if such big parts of the book weren't dedicated to Eve being hurt and having nightmares and needing Roarke to fight them back and making comparisons between the victim's and her situation, etc. Not because I can't take the drama but because it is the same thing in every book over and over again. 13 books in and nothing has changed in that respect so I would prefer it if the nightmare became something that is just there and doesn't need a 10 page space to be developed only to essentially prove to be just another nightmare like all the other ones before it.Is this a deal breaker? Of course not. But it may be if this goes on for 30 more books.

    3.5 stars“Predators did not need mercy.”― Conn IgguldenThroughout the story we as a reader know how difficult it is for Eve to deal with this case (view spoiler)[as it involves rape (hide spoiler)].There are innocent women who go out on a date but do not survive the night. We as readers know the identity of the killers from the very start and it's all about Eve Dallas finding them and stopping them in their sick game!The chapters that were from the killer's perspective were SICK!!Eve Dallas is a kick-ass and goes all out to hunt them down!I really enjoyed the mind-games in the last few chapters and how Eve handles it all!The ending though unconventional, I think is appropriate.P.S- Also liked that finally Peabody and McNab are getting somewhere...["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Lucky number 13 in the series and it was a good one. Eve is trying to catch two guys who are using a date rape drug to rape and kill their victim. It's a game to them where they get points.We know who the murderers are for the whole book, but it was still a fun ride to watch the process. Even better than that is the characters and relationships between all of them. There is something to be said for long series because you really get involved in their world and feel like the characters are old friends after a while."How'd you know it was me?" Feeney demanded as he came inside."You shuffle.""Hell I do.""Hell you don't. You shuffle, Peabody clomps, McNab prances."Also, Eve strides and Roarke prowls.Each of their walking styles is indicative of their personalities. Which is why I love McNab. Plus he says stuff like this:He's a magnificent prancing man!

    Book 13 and it is still fresh. I still crave more of Roarke and Eve. I love them. I think I love her more than I love him. She is so strong, independent, honest."Dachas," she said, "is, I'm told, Gaelic for hope."Lets get the negatives out of the way. Nope, it is not! It has been more than 30 years since I studied Irish in the classroom but some words stay with you. Didn't even have to google this one. The Irish/Gaelic word for "hope" is "Dóchas"! Nora, if you want to hire me as your Irish expert and give me a share of the book profits, I don't mind!."You're back early.""A bit. Hello, Lieutenant."At the sound of his voice, that subtle and rich lilt of Ireland, everything inside her tumbled. Then he smiled, just the faintest curve of his lips, and she took a step toward him."It is he that saith not Kismet.""It is he who knows not fate."Roarke seems to be more involved in Eve's investigations now, with the blessing of Whitney and Feeney. Peabody and McNab!"You pompous, egotistical, ignorant fuckhead."I love Eve. Have I said that already?The Irish in it occasionally gave her a strange thrill, along with misty images of warriors and fragrant fires. And poetry, she supposed ...I see Ms Robb is releasing Book 41 or 42 next week and folks are still engaged. Well done to her.Another solid read."I love you.Darling Eve."

    I'm amazed how Ms. Roberts manages to write such a different, but Always interesting, crimes! WOW!!!And I'm amazed that these crimes are always a possible ones! Human idiocy and bloodthirst will never cease to astonish me!!!Here we have two killers. Young, rich, pampered. And totally out of their minds crazy!!!Here the concept of romance is used as a deadly game! How crazy is that???!!!I'm also amazed by the author's ability to insert witticisms, smart remarks in a very serious moments thus defusing its seriousness! I rarely incountered this in crime/mystery books and it is so very appreciated here!!!

    4.5 stars - Romantic Suspense/Futuristic/Romantic ThrillerWow! Thirteen books in and I don't see myself tiring of this series. With a smart, gruff, edgy, tough, and not always easy to like heroine, Eve Dallas, fabulous secondary characters, my all-time favorite swoonalicious hero, Roarke, interesting and unique futuristic New York setting, and dark, well-written police procedural suspense, In Death continues to deliver. I'm still overwhelmed by how many books there are in this series, but I've got a reliable go-to when I need a good romantic suspense (and Roarke) fix! Here are my favorite casting possibilities.Eve Dallas:Stana KaticJennifer GarnerJaimie AlexanderSandra BullockRoarke:David GandyMichael FassbenderHugh JackmanHenry Cavill

    Another wonderful re-read...Loved Roarke's reaction to Eve being sick and her learning to deal with it. (Thanks to Summerset!) Lots of character growth...Roarke is getting more involved in the case. Eve is still extremely annoyed, but letting him. Progress on the Peabody/McNab front, as well. "We're a couple." "A couple of what?" Vintage Eve. Loved Eve's rant in Whitney's office...and his reaction. On to the next!

A rhetorical question, darling," he said and stuffed caviar into her mouth. I still can't get over how amazing this narrator is!2nd read: 15th May-23rd May

    Here we have two friends playing a game by raping women and killing them and Eve tries to find them before they kill more women. At this point of the series I don't know what else to say, the entire series is an experience you don't want to miss. I love it.

    We have young and innocent women who gets seduced thru the net with poetry, travel and romance. They end up meeting said Romeo and don't survive the night. It is up to our kick ass cop to find the sick and twisted killer. As usual, Roarke is being his perfect self. Eve is in her usual bitchy but tenacious self. Mavis and Trina's appearance were mag! I am so glad Peabody and McNabb are together for real.

    Seduction in Death is the 13th book in the gritty, futuristic detective series featuring Eve Dallas and her husband, sexy billionaire Roarke. Eve and her team are after a serial killer who is meeting women through chat groups. He's targeting single women with poetry, flowers and romance before meeting them in person and slipping a lethal date rape drug into their cocktail. To add to the intrigue, it looks like there are two different killers working as a team, making it a game where each accumulates points. All the usual secondary characters appear and there are some interesting changes in Peabody and McNab's fractured relationship. I always enjoy a cameo appearance by Mavis, Leonardo and Trina, who are tasked with disguising Eve, including fake boobs. Truly hilarious. This series is an unconventional blend of science fiction, romance and police procedural which will appeal to fans of both mysteries and romance. It's definitely not a cozy mystery and the themes explored in the stories are pretty brutal. I enjoy seeing how Eve and Roarke continue to grow as a married couple. I am not very far into this unique series but it's definitely one I plan to continue.

    Suspense 4.25 stars / Romance 4 starsThe title says it all. Interesting crime trope. But the villains were clear in the middle of the story. I like the tension till the end.Romance. Eve and Roarke almost perfect.McNab - mega a§§hole and Peabody was pathetic. He slept with many OWs, threw it in her face and she just took him back? Give me a break!!! This installment ruined Peabody's character for me.

    Women are being seduced to death in a scene set with candles, rose petals, fine wine, music and poetry. Two bored young men are playing a game to see who can score the most points in this dangerous game. Although the reader knows early in the book who the seducers are, it takes some exceptional work by Eve and her team (and expert civilian consultant - aka Roarke) to work out who they are and discover secrets going back decades.Another totally engaging book in this series, with Roarke and Eve married nearly a year and settled into domestic bliss (with a bit of bickering and lots of sex), Peabody and McNab struggling to decide if they love or hate each other (with Eve trying not to gag when the talk gets mushy), and other members of Roarke's household (Sommerset, Galahad) and Eve's fellow cops (Feeney, Trueheart, Whitney) playing their usual roles with aplomb.

    Posted on Under the CoversThe pursuit of love has never been so deadly. A killer seduced by the idea of love targets victims of an online poetry chatroom where after making an arrangement to meet, he wines and dines them, slipping potent and rare date-rape drugs into their drinks until all they feel is euphoria and desire. These unsuspecting romantics continue to be targeted by this anonymous killer. Coming in to stop this string of murders from occurring, Eve Dallas uses everything in her arsenal to take this killer down. Unfortunately for her, her own past keeping veering her concentration off the case. As Eve tries to battle her own personal demons, McNab and Peabody engage in their own dance of bitter lovers. I LOVED the idea of this book. The seducing killer was such an interesting idea that I think it really made this case stands out from the others in my opinion. In this book, Eve’s past is played up a little more and we see a much more graphic and tortured scene painted before us. It really made me love Eve more. As a reader you can sympathize with her and what she has gone through when you read the parts about her dark childhood, but as Detective Eve Dallas, you also experience a side of Eve that is strong and competent and confident. I like that we see so many facets of Eve in one single book.This time I listened to the audio of this book and noticed right off the bat that Susan Ericksen tweaked the voices a little bit. The most notable was Peabody. Our favorite aid no longer has that nasally voice anymore, which to be honest, was a little annoying in the previous recordings. But I found that I really liked the changes that Ericksen made in this book.Of course, no UTC review of an In Death is complete without Roarke. Still as endearing and desirable as ever....Roarke doesn’t need a date rape drug to seduce such willing victims, his charm and that Irish lilt is all he needs. I love him.

    What a despicable pair of spoiled brats, with one being so much worse than the other. And sadly, even though this is set in the future, it's not beyond the realm of actually happening.Louise and Charles meet in this book - gotta love that couple. Ian and Charles get into a good knock around fight with "Dishy Dimato" cooling them off!McNab and Peabody get back together and this time exclusively!Two thumbs up and 5 stars!

    My whole review is spoilers so don't read it unless you are masochistic. (view spoiler)[I didn't care for the mystery so much, the one guy so weak and dependent upon the other, then the other sweeping in and, in the end, being very ineffectual. Well, it just left me a little wanting in the crime/drama that I get from JD. There are some HUGE moments for Eve; horrifying dreams, horrifying thoughts that speak to her throughout, horrifying strains on her nerves as she tries to 'stand for the dead' while loving herself and her husband and the trust they have between them. I loved this one for the moments between Eve and Roarke but I didn't care for the mystery. It was gruesome and vile, but it was a bit too easily solved. (hide spoiler)]

    Two young men with everything going for them look like good ideas for dates. But what if they are psychopathic serial killers? Hope EHarmony screens for these things. They might want to include on their questionnaires, "do you like long walks and drugging your date before you rape her and throw her off a balcony?" Great book by one of the best writers in the world!

    5 stars. This series is so awesome. Eve really had he work cut our for her on this one. It was a bit dark, but the banter with everyone makes it fun and lightens the subject matter up a bit. This is quickly turning into a favorite series. I can't wait to read more.

    This being the thirteenth book of an amazing series, I'm having trouble thinking up new ways to praise every next one, no matter how very different they are all from one another. (I can't imagine writing a review when I reach book 30-something)This one is sort of a lucky read for me, because I was gone for two weeks and out of the several books from the series I saw in one bookstore, this was one. Being the one I've reached I couldn't believe my luck and bought the paperback.And it was an engrossing read, as always. I loved the concepts of the crime and was really driven to shuddering at the murderer's reasoning. This is not the most psyche case Eve's gone through, but it was a ton of shattered innocence without reason.McNab and Peabody fans will enjoy this, as will those who liked Doctor Louise. And Roarke&Eve-shippers will love it. Featured in this one is also Eve catching a cold, Whitney going in the field and Trina doing a once-over on an unwilling undercover cop XDLaughs and shudders guaranteed.

    Never gets old, never. Eve and Roarke always slay me but Eve really did me in here. As a cop, not just her job but who she is at her core, Eve always stands for the victims of the murders she investigates. They mean something to her and justice for them is paramount to solving the crime. But she suffered for this one. And because she did, Roarke did. *sigh* For her to be one of the strongest, toughest, most badass female characters I've ever read and loved, she has some very fragile, breakable places inside. Another terrific, fast-paced story, more time spent with this close-knit, hilarious family *though Eve would shudder at the thought*. I don't think there is any other series where so many characters mean so much to me, every one of them. Love them all, and none feel minor to me, even Whitney and Trina (LOL). And there is never enough Roarke and Eve, I love them together. I love how he loves her, how he's driven to look after and protect Eve, though there's hardly anyone who needs protecting less, which is one of the things Roarke admires about her. I love how damn awkward Eve still is sometimes about expressing herself to him, telling Roarke what he means to her. I laugh every time he feels the need to coddle her and Eve gets all bristly and insulted and ends up giving in and allowing *enjoying* Roarke to care for her. I love how they fit, despite their many contradictions.And whoo-boy!! *fans self* Anybody who reads much of NR/JD Robb knows she is not explicit with her sex scenes but they lack nothing, these two have never been less than scorching hot together. Robb turns up the heat in this one, and there were scenes in this that by turns were so smokin' it had me checking to see if my damn kindle melted to my hands or so damn tender it made me shed a few tears. Admittedly, I am a sap but Roarke and Eve are special.Damn good story, engaging writing and genuinely amazing characters make for a series that never gets old and will keep bringing me back as long as JD Robb cares to write them.

    Kasus kali ini adalah tewasnya para wanita dlm kencan buta. Diawali dgn perkenalan lewat dunia maya, para korban dirangsang dgn obat, berhubungan badan hingga mereka tewas. Eve Dallas menyelidiki kasus ini dan menemukan bhw pelakunya tidak hanya satu orang. Ketika penyelidikan mengarah pada obat yg diproduksi salah satu laboratorium ternama, Eve tidak buang-buang waktu utk mengkonfirmasikan pd si empunya. Dan saat mengetahui bhw salah satu pelaku adalah cucu dari pemilik laboratorium tsb, Eve menjebak salah satunya dlm penyamaran sbg wanita kencan buta tsb. Terpancing oleh intimidasi Eve, akhirnya dia membeberkan dan membocorkan segalanya. Kali ini saya puas dgn cara penceritaan author, dimana berhamburan kata-kata sarkastis Eve Dallas yg ditimpali oleh Roarke ataupun anak-anak buahnya. Saya ikut tertawa geli krn Eve bnyk mengucapkan kata "pantat" di buku ini. Cuma sayangnya, tokoh antagonis di buku ini sudah diberitahu sejak separo buku dan jalan kematian yg ditempuh oleh si tokoh antagonist terasa antiklimaks bagi saya.
