Seduction in Death
#13 In Death

Multiple rapes/murders by two friends using date rape drugs. Readers know who the killers are and follow Lt. Dallas' methods of discovering who they are and tracking them down. ( )

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. ( )

4.5/5 one of her more enjoyable plot lines, I think. ( )

These deaths hit Eve hard. She has to rely on Roarke to get her through the investigation. I like her thinking pattern and how she can get into the mind of the killer. I love how Roarke always has her back. Love these two. ( )

I have one thing to say for how one of the couples turned out at the end of this book: o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/o/.
I have another thing to say to how the other couple turned out at the end of this book: *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.* *.*
Now to the story: I thought it was a very cool case and the background action was just as good too. J.D Robb has this incredible talent to mash everything together into one great story. I loved seeing more of Commander Whitney here and there were some really romantic scenes that started out with Eve for a change. Amazing. ( )

Book description
15# Eve Dallas Investigation In Death

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is searching for a Casanova killer with a deadly appetite for seduction.

Dante had been courting his victim in cyberspace for weeks before meeting her in person. A few sips of wine and a few hours later, she was dead. The murder weapon: a rare, usually undetectable date-rape drug with a street value of a quarter million dollars.

Detective Eve Dallas is playing and replaying the clues in her mind. The candlelight, the music, the rose petals strewn across the bed - a seduction meant for his benefit, not hers. He hadn't intended to kill her. But now that he had, he is left with only two choices: to either hole up in fear and guilt. Or start hunting again....
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425181464, Mass Market Paperback)

New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, continues her prolific string of hits with her latest installment in the In Death series of futuristic thrillers starring hard-boiled detective Eve Dallas and a quirky cast of characters, including Eve's husband, Roarke, who owns most of Manhattan and can be relied upon to bring all his considerable resources to bear to help his wife solve the case whether she wants him to or not, and Peabody, Eve's uptight assistant, who has an off-again, on-again thing going with the irreverent Officer McNab. This time Eve is on the trail of a serial killer--or maybe killers--who stalks young women looking for love in online poetry chat rooms. Once a romantic date has been arranged, the murderer sets the scene with roses, champagne, and candlelight, then serves his unsuspecting victims a lethal combination of date-rape drugs that takes them to the height of pleasure and too far beyond. But this killer is really clever, altering his look to become each victim's dream date. What a nightmare! Detective Dallas is on the case, chasing an anonymous psychopath with a twisted taste in romance. But Eve seems a little more fragile this time around, still plagued by the nightmare of childhood abuse. Is retirement from the business of crime solving in the near future for Detective Dallas? Robb has found a winning formula in the genre, so hopefully we'll see a lot more of peppery Eve Dallas. --Alison Trinkle
