Review: Glory in Death by JD Robb

Glory in Death (In Death, #2)

In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there’s only one place to hide a crime of passion – in the heart. . .
The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects – including her own lover, Roarke. As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead . . .to investigate every scandalous rumor . . .to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.

Another case that is connected with Roarke, but since he knows almost everyone in New York is bound to happen a lot. I liked how their relationship evolved since the last book and showed a different side of Eve, with more feelings than she could care but still in love with the perfect guy for her.
The investigation was really hard or her, because the first victim was a PA and the entire city was blaming the cops for poor job. Another thing was the relationship that her chief had with the PA and her family, making her job really harder than ever.
But I liked how Eve was strong and followed the leads the case was throwing at her without fear and always looking for the assassin in the first place without thinking about how much money he had or how his family was.
I think this case was worts than the first, but maybe Eve was more troubled, but I think she did a pretty good job with the investigation and looking in different places. She was feeling really guilt because her bait didn’t work and blamed herself after somebody died, but she made justice in the end and we got to see her as a trophy wife in Roarke’s party, just don’t tell her that.
