Eve is after two murderers, seducing, raping and murdering women. Some repeat scenes such as flashbacks to her father's abuse and Eve fighting Roarke medicating her, but it was still entertaining.

Seduction in Death
4 Stars

Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the hunt for a serial killer who targets women in dating chatrooms, seduces them with roses and romance, and kills with a rare and deadly drug.

Once again the culprit is revealed at the start and the plot focuses on Eve following the clues with the help of her team. While the mystery is straightforward, the motivations are deeply disturbing and call to mind such cases as Leopold and Loeb as well as the Clutter family murders. There are also some very dark and brutal descriptions of the victims' last moments that some readers may find off-putting.

As with the previous books, the real highlight in the story is the character development. Peabody and McNab's volatile relationship comes to a head and Charles Monroe finally finds a woman who can look past his profession to the wonderful and caring man he truly is.

Roarke and Eve also have some lovely moments together as well as some laugh out loud ones.

All in all, another great installment and I look forward to the next one. ( )

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
