In Death 31
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
Two men of the ultra rich by inheritance are playing a game of killing people, people who are successful but as far as they are concerned beneath them.
Sly Moriarty and Winston Dudley are on a collision course for a lifetime cage.
Dallas and Roarke work together to set the bait. ( )

Like many readers, I stay with the In Death series because of the characters. I like seeing what Charles and Louise, or the Miras, or, in this book, Roarke's newly discovered Irish family, are up too. On that score, this one didn't disappoint. The actual mystery, starting with a dead limo drive killed with an exotic weapon, was pretty easy to figure out. Still, love seeing Eve get the bad guys. ( )

A driver, working for a leading limousine service, dies with a crossbow shot through his neck. The executive who’d booked the car had had his identity stolen.

A high-priced escort dies with a bayonet stuck in her heart. The CEO who’d arranged for her services had had his identity stolen.

New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas fears the criminal she seeks is a thrill killer with a taste for the more exclusive in both life and death. With no motive, Eve has no way to predict who will become the next victim or where the next murder will occur. Where will Eve’s search for the killer take her? And will the killer strike again before she can put an end to the heinous murders?

This, the thirty-first entry in the “In Death” canon, begins with a special trip to Ireland for Eve and Roarke where they visit with Roarke’s family and Eve has a surprise present for her husband. [Cue the happy tears.] And before they return to New York, Eve becomes peripherally involved in solving the murder of a young woman.

But the focus of this story is the murder spree in New York City after they return from their trip. Anchored in the world of the near-future by a strong sense of place, the unfolding narrative takes several twists and turns as Eve investigates, but, in this case, readers will identify the culprit early in the telling of the tale. Still, the intrigue is in watching Eve work the complex case with her cohorts.

As always, the relationships between the well-defined, nuanced characters lie at the heart of the story. As the narrative evolves, there’s plenty of camaraderie, humor, banter, repartee, and romance to accompany the determined police work.

Readers will find much to appreciate here and are likely to find it difficult to set this book aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended. ( )

The road was a killer, hardly wider than a decent stream of spit and snaking like a cobra between giant bushes loaded with strange flowers that resembled drops of blood.
