In Death 17
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
A top hat and cape-clad killer is determined to make his own mark as a serial killer. He’s executing copycat murders, re-creating the killings of the most notorious, vicious murders of all time, beginning with Jack the Ripper. And he’s chosen New York Police and Security Department’s homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas as his victim.

Seventeenth in the “In Death” series, readers will find much to appreciate in this story’s evolving relationship between Eve and Peabody, a nice counterpoint to the gritty and gruesome murders taking place at the hands of the sadistic copy-cat serial killer. There’s the requisite laugh-out-loud humor, the Eve/Peabody banter, the romance, the character development, the strong sense of place in the summer of 2059 in New York City. Readers will find this to be a perfect addition to the canon.

Highly recommended. ( )

Imitation--as in someone is imitating serial killers' m.o.s. I felt like the plot kind of dragged on to fill a page count. It was nice to see Delia Peabody advance. I didn't guess who the perpetrator was before it was revealed (which I have in some other books in this series). ( )

Anita and Peabody are trying to stop a killer imitating various serial killers. The crimes are violent against women and can be graphic.

A copy cat killer is reprising ugly crimes of rape and murder from the past., Dallas may be on his list. A good entry in this excellent future based police procedural series. ( )
