In Death 32
  JimFellows | Mar 3, 2021 |
Murder in the course of committing a robbery is nothing new in New York City, but having New York Police and Security Department’s Detective Delia Peabody serve as the lead on the case is definitely something new. Ecstatic at her promotion from assistant to homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s partner, Peabody rounds up the suspects and resolves to make some needed changes.

After her shift is over, she heads to the seldom-used gym at Central for a grueling workout. There, her presence unnoticed, she overhears two colleagues discussing an island house, delivery of a product, and someone named Keener whose death is supposed to look like an overdose.

Peabody realizes these corrupt officers have committed murder and she relays the information to Eve. Will they be able to find the evidence they need to convict the corrupt cops without becoming their next victims?

Thirty-second in the “In Death” series, readers once again know the identity of the culprits early on in the telling of the tale. They also have an opportunity to see Delia shine as she accepts even more responsibility. The plot is straightforward: Delia, now Eve’s partner [rather than her associate], takes the lead in the investigation into the robbery of a convenience store and the murder of one of the owners. The young punks responsible are soon rounded up; a win for Peabody’s first case as primary. When she decides to work out, the corrupt cops she overhears become the central focus of the story.

It’s a difficult case . . . cops investigating corrupt cops is about as difficult as it gets. But, as always, the team perseveres and there’s justice for the victims. The interplay between Eve and Peabody is a highlight of the camaraderie between the characters; these characters, their relationships, and their growth are what make the stories special. In these pages, readers will find humor and romance, effective police work, teamwork, and, because of the nature of the case, angst and difficult emotions. But the story is compelling and readers will find it difficult to set this one aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended. ( )

One of the best In Death books. Love how the relationship between Eve and Roarke has evolved and matured! ( )

Please note that I gave this 4.5 stars out of 5 stars and rounded it to 5 stars on Goodreads.

The only reason why I did not give this one 5 stars was because the speech that Dallas pours all over Mira later on was too much. I may have rolled my eyes a lot. But everything else in the story works perfectly, though once again I may have said shut up Roarke a few times.

After finishing up a case with Dallas, Peabody goes off to work out at the precinct and while in the locker room about to take a shower she overhears two fellow officers arguing and realizes they are both alluding to murder and corruption. Due to this, Dallas and every resource she has does what is necessary to take down the corrupt cops and their leader Oberman.

So even though as readers we know who is behind the murders that start racking up, we get to see Eve and crew tie everything up. And you get to see the machinations going on behind the scenes. This book for once includes everyone, Reo, Whitney, Tibble, Mira, most of Dallas men and women who serve under her, Roarke, McNabb, and Feeney. We even get some looks at other detectives as well which was welcomed.

You pretty much see Robb setting Dallas and Oberman as the opposite of each other. Dallas commands respect, and Oberman sees herself as commanding that same thing in her men, but she's corrupt and has no qualms about using them and others to get what she wants.

There is a fight scene between these two that I did sit up and cheer about, and I kind of wish had went on longer. The payoff though in the end when Dallas and her men do what is necessary in order to stand up for those who Oberman ruins was great though.

I do find it interesting this is never really mentioned again in the series which I find to be weird. A major corruption case like this would make headlines and I can see suspects sneering at New York police officers over this too. ( )
