Glory in Death
4 Stars

Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s investigation into the deaths of two prominent and successful women takes a personal turn when both victims are linked to her lover - the enigmatic business magnet known only as Roarke. Although she believes in his innocence, as a police detective, Eve is to follow every lead no matter where it takes her.

Suffice it to say that the reasons J.D. Robb fans adore this series are starting to become clear to me: Fast paced writing, interesting character development, an unpredictable romance and a mystery with some compelling twists and turns.

Eve is a very complex heroine. On a professional level, one cannot help but admire her resilience and independence as she strives to attain justice for the victims. However, on the personal front, she is somewhat of a mess as she struggles to cope with her feelings for Roarke and difficulty expressing her obvious love for him.

Roarke is just as interesting but for opposite reasons. It is rare to find an alpha hero so ready to embrace his new and unexpected feelings for a woman, but Roarke does so without hesitation and this makes him more appealing than all of his enigmatic sexiness (which he also has in abundance).

Eve and Roarke’s romance is a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, arguments and reconciliations, ultimatums and acceptance. It keeps the reader guessing and the pages turning.

Unlike the first installment, the mystery in this one caught me by surprise. Although all the necessary clues are available to anyone paying attention, guessing the culprit before the big reveal also requires an ability to see past the obvious and look beyond surface appearances. Kudos to Robb for being able to blindside me in this regard.

In sum, this series is growing on me and I’m eager to read on and see what happens next. ( )

One of the best in this series of futuristic police thrillers ( )
  Gifford_MacShane | Mar 30, 2023 |
Incluso en la segunda mitad del siglo XXI, cuando los análisis genéticos nos permiten eliminar cualquier rasgo hereditario de violencia, los asesinatos siguen manchando la actualidad.
La primera víctima es encontrada en la calle bajo la lluvia. La segunda aparece asesinada en su propio apartamento. La teniente Eve Dallas no tiene ningún problema en encontrar las conexiones entre los crímenes. Ambas eran mujeres de éxito en sus respectivas profesiones y en sus vidas privadas se relacionaban con hombres poderosos e influyentes, lo que lleva a Dallas a acotar una lista de posibles sospechosos entre los que se encuentra su amante Roarke.
Como mujer, Eve se ve obligada a confiar en el hombre con el que comparte su corazón. Pero como policía, su trabajo requiere que siga cada pista, que explore cada pasión secreta sin importar lo peligrosa o siniestra que pueda ser.

At least this time, with this murder, she knew he had an alibi. At the time Cicely Towers was having her throat slashed, Roarke had been fu***ng the hell out of the investigating officer.
