This investigation was so horrifying, because a man can simply walk to a person and kill for money. After Eve started the investigation and we discovered his family is so messed up it was really strange seeing how much the human nature can be disturbed.
 
We have a friend of Roarke showing up in a very suspicious way and I started to think bad things about him, but not as bad as what exactly happened, and this guy is considered a friend above everything else. I liked how Eve never really stopped being a cop and could see clearly through this guy, but Mick was really good.
 
I liked the story because it revolved around so much different things and we could clearly see someone is after Roarke, plus they attacked Summerset, but of course he is safe and sound after everything. I liked how protective this family became of each other.

Review: Conspiracy in Death by JD Robb

Conspiracy in Death (In Death, #8)

1 MP3-CD / 11 hours, 56 minutes
Streetwise cop Eve Dallas and her trusty sidekick Peabody face a methodical killer in this latest addition to the In Death series by J.D. Robb, better known as the bestselling author Nora Roberts.

In the late 21st century, on the streets of New York City, a street sleeper is found murdered, his diseased heart removed with surgical precision. His death would typically drop to the bottom of a list of senseless and inexplicable killings, but Lieutenant Dallas, who "would stand for the dead and the living," is not about to let that happen. When her research uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she’s facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup.

To complicate matters further, Dallas faces an equally troubling threat to her career when she’s linked to the death of a fellow cop. Now she must fight to restore her good name as well as track down the killer.

This was the scariest book so far for me, because we can see Eve losing her connection and the situations she finds herself in are nearly as dramatic and dangerous than the previous books, but this one left me in tears several times way past my bedtime hours.

We can see a series of deaths, suspicious deaths when the killer took an organ as the souvenir and Eve decided to investigate deeply because the incisions were too much clean, like in a medical way clean, so she decided to follow this lead in the hotshots league, the transplant surgeons area, with Roarke helps, because as always he owns a few places with connections.

I felt like Eve was being attacked left and right during this book. A former classmate from the academy that left anger and jealousy take place decided to say lies about Eve in the television and showed up death, so we can see Eve as a suspect of murdering another cop, but not one of her friends believed in this and decided to investigate.

So Eve was suspended during a very dangerous investigation and completely lost herself for nearly a day, and the only person responsible to bring her back was Roarke with loving words and actions. He was really helpful during this investigation and we can see Eve trusts more of her life in his hands.

I loved this book and was cheering in the end for Eve to get better.

Review: Vengeance in Death by JD Robb

Vengeance in Death (In Death, #6)

He is an expert with the latest technology . . . a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit – always solved moments too late to save the victims’ lives. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past – a secret shared by none other than Eve’s new husband, Roarke.

This book was different from the others because Eve was in the center of the action since the killer was after revenge and the final target was Roarke and something he did years ago in Dublin came back to haunt him.

I liked this book, because it showed how deep Eve relationship became and how much she loves Roarke, also Summerset showed a different side of him and we could understand a little better why he doesn’t like Eve.

So far I think this was one of the darkest books in the series, because danger was close to Eve and she had to believe in her friends and trust people with her secrets, while bending the law a little bit.

I think the final was a bit abrupt and after Eve discovered the killer and started to actually hunt him, we can see in less than one chapter what he does to her and we are also left wondering about Eve’s condition.

Not my favorite book, but still a great mystery.

This case was different because for once Eve lost a bit of her indifference and got caught during the investigation. Mavis is a great friend of her for years and to see that, made Eve start thinking about what it’s right and wrong. Plus this is also the marriage and Eve is a little lost about the wedding and the party.

I liked this story. It was strange and disturbing seeing Eve caught in the web of the assassin, even trying to find the killer while the public and the PA already assumed Mavis was guilty. I believe this was one of the hardest time for her because she spent so long hunting for an answer and things were so difficult.

I never would have imagined the end, but for one thing this book made it worth it. Peabody showed a different side during the bachelorette party and even doctor Mira became more real.
