Description

In early spring of 2059, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called off planet to face a grueling ordeal - giving a seminar at the largest police conference of the year, to be held in a swanky resort. A resort which just happens to be owned by her husband, Roarke, of course.

Even though Eve can't quite see it that way, it's supposed to be at least partly a vacation. But work intrudes in the form of a bloody homicide, and Eve is off and running. The case is complicated by Eve's personal history with the victim - and by the killer's history with Roarke. As danger closes in and the body count rises, Eve must find a way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge, and shove the past back where it belongs.

    Though a short story, Eve Dallas, Roarke and the NYSPD are at their best.
    Love this series.

    Interlude in Death
    4 Stars

    At an off-planet law enforcement conference, Lieutenant Eve Dallas finds herself investigating the violent death of a man with whom she had a previous altercation . The case becomes even more fraught when it becomes clear that Roarke is being framed for the crime.

    This is the 2nd novella in the series and is, despite its shorter length, a self-contained story.

    Even though the motive for the crime is never in doubt, the investigation is still compelling mainly due to the insights into Roarke's backstory and a couple of very suspenseful moments. There are also some hints at deeper connections between Eve and Roarke that are very tantalizing and it will be interesting to see the direction in which Robb takes them.

    In sum, a short yet sweet addition to the series.

    A seminar off planet with hundreds of police personnel in attendance doesn't stop murder from being committed. A 50-year career commander with the memory of a blotched operation that cost the lives of many good cops fuels the murders along with a vendetta involving Eve and Roarke. This is a very short 88-pages but each is filled with the suspense that only J.D. Robb can weave to bring Eve Dallas and Roarke to life.

    It was fast paced with a really good plot as always. but I think I just prefer the full novels over the novellas, there is much more character development in there.

    NYPSD homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas is not happy. She’s off-planet at a law enforcement conference where she scheduled to give a speech and host a seminar. And Eve is decidedly unhappy about both of those things.Their stay at the swanky Olympus Resort [Roarke’s, of course] is supposed to be part vacation, but murder interrupts in a very personal way: Eve has a history with the victim and Roarke has a history with the killer. Can Eve untangle the off-planet crime and put an end to the cycle of revenge?This “In Death” novella follows the events recounted in “Betrayal in Death” and finds several of the expected characters attending the off-planet conference. Despite its short length, the narrative brings readers all the things they have come to expect from an “In Depth” story: a strong sense of place, well-developed, nuanced characters, and an intriguing mystery. In addition, there’s some interesting backstory for Roarke as well as dashes of suspense, humor, and romance. Readers, both returning and new, will enjoy the unfolding story.Highly recommended.

    Sometimes the past can distort the present.Eve and Roarke had to stop a mad man who
    Had them confused
  • (4/5)
    Another great book in the Eve Dallas series. I liked that we got to learn more about Roarke's history and it will be interesting to see whether or not Roarke and Eve's fathers were associates. My only complaint...where was McNab? His absence, especially after his and Peabody's fight was quite conspicuous.

    Nachdem ich gerne spannende Romane im Stil von Tess Gerritsen lese, wurde mir empfohlen, es doch einmal mit J.D. Robb zu versuchen. Gesagt, getan. Zu meiner großen Entäuschung musste ich feststellen, dass die Qualität der Bücher dieser beiden Autorinnen absolut nicht vergleichbar ist.Die Charaktere, allen voran Eve Dallas und ihr Mann Roarke, haben genauso wenig Tiefe, wie die Geschichten an sich, wobei beides bis zu einem gewissen Grad durchaus mit der Kürze der drei hier zusammengestellten Romane zusammenhängen mag. Erschwerend kommt noch eine meiner Ansicht nach wirklich schlechte deutsche Übersetzung des ohnehin nicht sehr anspruchsvollen Textes hinzu, was das Lesevergnügen noch zusätzlich getrübt hat.Das einzige Element, das mir gefallen hat, war das "sci-fi setting" in der nahen Zukunft, wobei am Ende auch dies kaum mehr als billige Verzierung der Romane war. Kurz: Mich hat das Buch nicht angesprochen, aber wer die Autorin generell gerne liest, wird sicher auch hier seine Freude haben.
