One more steller book for this series. I really like how the character of Dallas has grown over the course of the series. ( )

J. D. Robb always manages to give her readers something special, and Echoes in Death is no exception. When Eve and Roarke come across a naked woman roaming the streets, it leads them to a murdered surgeon, beginning an investigation into a series of rapes and assaults of wealthy married couples. Eve must dig deeply into the lives of these wealthy people to understand the pathology of this killer. Aspects of the case take her back to her abusive childhood making the investigation that much tougher on her.
The killer isn't really difficult to figure out in this one, but the real twist comes at the end of the story once the killer has been identified and caught. As always, Robb's writing makes her stories entertaining to read, but her real talent lies in her ability to find the right emotional nuances in her characters that continue to make them interesting. I'll be looking forward to #45. ( )

Yet another great installment of the In Death Series. Someone is raping beautiful wives while their husbands watch. The crimes escalate and a husband is eventually killed, making these events Eve’s business. Not to mention the fact that she personally almost ran over one of the traumatized wives. This one strikes close to home for Eve, and I enjoy seeing the connection she has with her husband Roarke. Eve does the job as always, and sticks to her ethics by not allowing the full story to come out. I missed Mavis in this one, although I enjoyed the focus on their marriage. I look forward to the next installment! ( )

Winter in New York City and NYPSD LT. Eve Dallas and her mega rich husband Roark were on their way home from a party. A blood covered young woman wanders right in front of their car. They rush her to the hospital. She is a victim of a brutal beating and multiple rapes. Evefinds the woman's residence and finds the young woman's husband beaten and lying in a pool of blood dead. Thus begins Eve's search for a devil disguised as a human, a perpetrator of extremely vile acts. Victims, blizzards, computer hacking and a dead surgeon, whom all respected yet hated became Eve's newest homicide case. It was a good fast one day read, with a somewhat unexpected yet satisfying finale. Now I will wait for the next in this series to be published. ( )

It is hard to believe that JD Robb has written 44 books in the Eve Duncan/Roarke series.

In any series that run this long, there are bound to be books that are just ok or just miss the mark. This sis one of those books.

While several reviewers will say that the problem with the books is that several characters are missing or have small parts. My complaint is that the books seem to focus a great deal on physical abuse of woman. While the characters are police officers investigating murders and it is highly likely that women will be a target but there seem to be a very high proportion of physical abuse in these stories. Given the fact that Eve was sexually abused as a child, this subject seems to take up a great deal of the plot for each book.

This installment was just ok and I would pass on it unless you are someone who needs to read every book in the series. I highly recommend the Audible versions read by Susan Erickson. She does a great job bringing all of the characters to life. ( )

Book description
As NY Lt. Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband Roarke are driving home, a young woman—dazed, naked, and bloody—suddenly stumbles out in front of their car. Roarke slams on the brakes and Eve springs into action.

Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it’s too late for her husband Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him “the devil”...

While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked, this is one case where the evidence doesn’t point to the spouse. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:

What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?
