Mystery Review: Portrait in Death by JD Robb

Portrait in Death (In Death, #16)

After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey Street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn’t a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered. Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who’s a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim’s every move. And he has a mission: to own every beautiful young woman’s innocence, to capture her youth and vitality – in one fateful shot…

This book was a little more emotional than the previous because we can finally see more of Roarke past and he discovered a few stories about his mother and how bad his father actually was, but I liked him finding hew things and for the first time looking for his family, it was really nice and touching, but the way he acted with Eve was really bad, because he’s always in her face to say something about her dreams, but when he has something bothering he just lash out.
 
I liked the investigation and how seeing how much Peabody has grow in her investigative skill. We can see this is a difficult case, but Eve is handling everything by the book. Plus deaths of young adults is always really difficult. But I liked the directions this book decided to lead us. Another great thing is seeing Eve trying to understand her relationship with Nadine. She’s never sure what to do or say behind cameras.
