My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Given that this is the 41st installment in the "In Death" series, there's not much more to say except that Ms. Robb continues to shine and satisfy her legion of readers.
Perhaps part of the reason is the way she grooms minor characters and brings them forward. For example, we met Officer Trueheart many books back as a rookie beat cop and he immediately resonated with readers. His wide-eyed, all-American boy attitude made him the opposite of world-weary Detective Eve Dallas. Over the series Trueheart would pop up periodically, and we could see his growth just as Eve does, until finally he's ready to sit for the Detective's exam in "Devoted in Death".
In addition, we're introduced to good ol' boy (and smart as a whip) Deputy Banner from Arkansas in this novel, plus Eve's team is racing against the clock to save a victim taken by spree killers in NYC. It's all good, and satisfying to fans of the series.
