They died with smiles on their faces. Three apparent suicides: a brilliant engineer, an infamous lawyer, and a controversial politician. Three strangers with nothing in common - and no obvious reasons for killing themselves. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the deaths suspicious. And her instincts paid off when autopsies revealed small burns on the brains of the victims. Was it a genetic abnormality or a high-tech method of murder? Eve's investigation turned to the provocative world of virtual reality games - where the same techniques used to create joy and desire could also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction . . .… (més)

In all long series, some books are just stronger than others. I couldn't get into this one for some reason. Worse, I sort thought Eve was a bit slow. Still, sort of nice to see her relationship with Peabody at and earlier stage and loved the Mavis storyline. All in all, not her best effort ( )

The fourth book of the popular “In Death” series by J.D. Robb starts at the end of Eve and Roarke's honeymoon at the Roarke-owned Olympus One resort. When an engineer is discovered dead in his room by his roommate, Eve is asked to check into it as a favor. It appears to be self termination and Eve and Roarke head back to New York to start life as newlyweds. On her first day back to work Eve has to testify at a trial. The next day the defendant's lawyer is discovered dead and it's also ruled a self termination. When a controversial politician kills himself Eve thinks it's just too coincidental. Why are all these brilliant people with great futures and no history of depression killing themselves? Soon Eve is thrown into the world of virtual reality and mind control, where your own mind can become someone else's weapon. Eve is determined to find the murderer responsible for these deaths, but the closer she comes to the truth, the more danger she, and Roarke, are in.

This is a great series when you just want to be entertained by a blend of romance and Eve's kick butt personality. I'll continue to read the series because I enjoy the characters, especially Peabody, even when some of the situations they find themselves in seen a bit implausible. The books hit all the right buttons for those who love strong women with inner vulnerabilities in the not so distant future. Just sit back, enjoy the fun and don't expect to be challenged by difficult mystery elements. I'm a fan and am moving on to #5, Ceremony in Death.

Often I start reading a book that just doesn't interest me. When I hit a string of these, I use J.D. Robb to break the string. Her futuristic adventures of Eve Dallas - NY cop in the year 2525, never disappoints. It's like a guilty pleasure for me. This one was no different. Four prominent people commit suicide. None of them seem the type and Eve thinks that maybe the suicides are really murders. ( )
