Homicide detective Eve Dallas must untangle a twisted family history while a hostage's life hangs in the balance--in Abandoned in Death by New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb. The woman's body was found in the early morning, on a bench in a New York City playground. She was clean, her hair neatly arranged, her makeup carefully applied. But other things were very wrong--like the tattoo and piercings, clearly new. The clothes, decades out of date. The fatal wound hidden beneath a ribbon around her neck. And the note: Bad Mommy, written in crayon as if by a child. Eve Dallas turns to the department's top profiler, who confirms what seems obvious to Eve: They're dealing with a killer whose childhood involved some sort of trauma--a situation Eve is all too familiar with herself. Yet the clues suggest a perpetrator who'd be roughly sixty years old, and there are no records of old crimes with a similar MO. What was the trigger that apparently reopened such an old wound and sent someone over the edge? When Eve discovers that other young women--who physically resemble the first victim--have vanished, the clock starts ticking louder. But to solve this case she will need to find her way into a hidden place of dim light and concrete, into the distant past, and into the cold depths of a shattered mind.… (més)

OMG I just love JD Robb and the Eve Dallas books. I have missed reading this one and just read it. To think a person can work right along another especially in the police department and turn out to be the killer/abductor you are searching for is crazy. Sad that innocent woman had t0 die because he wanted to punish his mother for abandoning him at such a young age. Yet to wait until you are in your 60's to start getting your revenge, that's just weird. I can't wait to read the next one. ( )

I've been a fan of In Death for many years. I love the blend of character relationships with a nice mystery. Sadly, I felt that the last couple installments had very weak mysteries; read and done in a couple hours. Abandoned changes that, but at the expense of the relationships.

The book kickstarts with a young addict abandoning her toddler before taking an overdose of pills. We then jump to The Body. The book focuses almost exclusively on the investigation from there on, mostly via Dallas & Peabody, with a lot of flashbacks to the killer's past or the pending victims. There are a few mentions of Mavis' new house, but there's very little interaction among all the principals. While I felt that lack keenly, the improved mystery was a welcome change and the killer was surprising.

I enjoyed it, but hope the next one gets back to better balancing the relationships and the investigation. ( )

If you are 54 books into a series (and that counts only the novels; there are also at least 11 novellas) and you are still reading the new books as soon as they are out, you either like the series or you are paid to do it. As I am not paid to read anything (I wish...), I really don't need to mention that I like the series.

One morning a body is found on a bench, holding a scrawled message "Bad Mommy" - a woman who seems to have fallen off time and landed in the future - everything about her is old-fashioned - her clothes, her hair. Except she is not - until a few days earlier she was just a normal modern woman - before disappearing. The reader actually knows a lot more that Eve at that point because we get not only the chapters from the perspective of the killer but also parts of chapters showing the past which led him to the current state.

Before long the book turns into the usual cat and mouse game - Eve is sure there are other women being abducted and about to die so the team works non-stop to try to stop the killer. A few red herrings later and the killer ends up being a surprising one (it was about time for this kind of a twist in the series but it still was surprising).

The novel won't win any awards in any of its genres but it is a decent entry into the series. Not sure if it can work as a standalone (the author stopped doing heavy introductions of her characters awhile back so they can look almost cardboard-y without the backstory). And I tend to overlook and forgive things in long running series - the backstory carries a lot of weight.

Note on timing - Eve and Roarke are about to celebrate their 3rd anniversary - which means that the 54 novels fit in 3 years (2058-2061). As all of them are dated somewhere in the books, that is not hard to work out if one tries to but still... this series can continue forever with this speed. Not that I mind. ( )

The discovery of a young woman’s body, found on a bench in a children’s playground, throws New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Eve Dallas into kidnapping cases in which the victims bear a similarity to the dead woman.

As the frantic search for the young women continues, Eve fears that another death will occur. Can they find the answers, identify the killer, and save the abducted women? Or is it already too late?

=========

Although this book works well as a standalone, it is the fifty-fourth book in the In Death series. Well-defined characters, a twisty, compulsive plot, and a strong sense of place all work together to pull the reader into the telling of the tale from the outset. With the story firmly anchored in the near future New York City, the suspense builds as the search for two missing women held captive by the killer ramps up.

At the heart of the In Death stories are the characters. Nuanced, believable characters populate the narrative; readers are sure to feel like they are greeting old friends. It’s a fascinating tale that shines a light on the interactions between the characters.

All of the expected characters . . . old friends for readers of the series . . . are in place as Eve faces a new sort of dilemma as she comes to realize the identity of killer. As always, the case is intriguing and captivating; in this narrative, the mind of a psychopath is part of the “Now” story while the background is slowly revealed in the “Before” sections. The twists and turns keep readers guessing, but the identity of the killer is sure to surprise everyone.

Highly recommended. ( )

A young woman is found dead in a New York City children's playground. She's dressed in a style decades out of date, and has brand-new piercings and a new tattoo.

Hidden by a ribbon around her neck is a knife slash through her throat, the cause of death.

As Eve Dallas and her team search for clues, they also discover that at least two other women, of roughly the same age and physical appearance are also missing.

With the evidence they do have, Dr. Mira constructs a profile of a man who experienced a childhood trauma. As they search for similar crimes, they're finding nothing. Whoever their killer is, he's apparently only just started. And as they look for people who were in the area when the women vanished, they find they are seemingly looking for a man in his sixties.

What has happened to trigger the kidnappings and killings (they find a second body, also near a children's play area), so many years after the apparent origin of the underlying grievance against "Bad Mommy"? To find the answer, Dallas and her team have to piece together the identity of a woman who disappeared decades ago, and a child taken into the foster care system, and a very confusing, complicated family history.

The backstory is in Tennessee and Louisiana. The investigation is closer to home, and not only the reader, but Dallas, is forced to regard Chief Tech Dick Berenski as a real person. Meanwhile, in addition to playing major roles in the investigation, Detectives Delia Peabody and Ian McNabb are also renovating a large house along with Mavis Freestone and Leonardo, in which each couple will have their own spaces, but also a lot of common space.

The characters continue to grow and develop, and the stories remain fresh. Recommended.
