    Casandra wants to dominate the world and uses Peabody’s brother to further their goals. Once again Eve and Roarke work to save New York.This is one of the early books of the series a lot of adventure and slick man-toys.

    Erickson has found her voice for these characters (audio book.) Revisiting this series has reminded me why I enjoy it so much.
  • (5/5)
    I love this series. I loved this book. Eve and Roarke make me melt. I love them. It has been awhile since I have been able to read a book from this series last, and I missed these characters. Reading this book was like sitting down to coffee with old friends. Warm, and comfortable, and fun. I never wanted it to end. Except that I know I can get the next book and start on it. One thing I love about these books is that they always so far combine an interesting mystery with the sizzle of Eve and Roarke (and Peabody fawning over Roarke). This book was no exception. But, they aren't cookie cutter, by-the-book, so to speak. They are all different enough to not become routine. I appreciate that, because by this point, it would make me lower my rating probably if they were cookie cutter books. I recommend this book highly if you are reading your way through. If you have yet to read this series, I highly recommend starting with book 1.

    A radical group has marked New York City and Eve must find them before they blow up her beloved city.
  • (5/5)
    Bombings are occurring with a group seemingly with ties to a group from 30 years previously. Eve is contacted by the group and begins to figure out where they will strike. Roarke's properties are chosen. I like how Eve wants to protect Roarke and he is not having any of it. It causes one of their first bad fights. Eve has to be vulnerable and explain what her fears are. She also is reliving her past. I love this series.
  • (3/5)
    One of my least favorite of the series, but I'm confident the next will be better.
  • (4/5)
    In 2058 New York City Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is investigating the murder of tycoon J.C. Branson. He died when his lover, Lisbeth Cooke, used a super powered screwdriver on J.C.'s heart during a jealous rage. Eve thinks there is a lot more to this while Lisbeth calmly explains her reasons, and she is right, but the answer is not what Eve suspects it might be. Eve's attention gets jolted by a series of notes from a group that calls itself Cassandra, after the Greek goddess who foretold the future. Bombings follow each note, with the promise of widespread destruction in the city.

    Loyalty in Death is a first-rate romantic suspense novel, in a series that is very addictive. They are filled with vivid and fully formed characters, a fascinating futuristic setting, and ever-entertaining story lines. I definitely plan to read more.

    Loyalty in Death
    4 Stars

    A routine investigation into the homicide of a businessman is interrupted by a series of bombings that hit close to home when the perpetrator targets Roarke's holdings and sends taunting letters to Eve.

    While the bomb plot is all too realistic in this day and age (perhaps even more so post 9/11), and the case has some incredibly intense moments, the villains are fairly obvious and the outcome predictable. That said, the character development and dialogue make this a series to return to over and over.

    The relationships really stand out in this installment whether it is Peabody and McNab taking an interesting step in their love/hate relationship; Eve realizing that marriage to Roarke will require a change in attitude, or the hints at some intriguing things to come with Eve's mother.

    In sum, a fast-paced and enjoyable read. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.
  • (5/5)
    Another great story in the Eve Dallas portfolio. I can't say how happy I got to see some more of McNab and Peabody here. Really, really cute. And I liked - which for me - was a plot twist, with who was the brain in the whole operation. Good to see Roarke not exactly saving Eve, but getting his too.
  • (3/5)
    The book is good but the audio formatted like a disc and is broken up into 30-45 seconds so there are 495 chapters. It was very distracting.

    Another excellent installment by JD Robb, definitely check out this series~
  • (5/5)
    When a crazed bomber sends taunting letters threatening the city NYPSD homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas loves, she races the clock to find the madman before he keeps his promise to wreak havoc on the corrupt masses. Can she find the bomber before her beloved New York City falls?In this, the ninth in the “In Death” series, readers will be delighted to find the playful banter between Eve and Peabody is alive and well, offering them a humorous respite from the grittiness of the plot. With Eve working in a different department, readers get to see her in a bit of a different light as the determined bomber tries to destroy what is considered the city’s symbols of the rich. Although written long before the towers fell, today’s readers are likely to find the telling of this tale, with its suggestion of the towers as a possible target, serves as a sad harbinger of things to come.As always, the relationships are a highlight of the narrative; Peabody and McNab are sure to keep readers chuckling while Eve and Roarke continue to build their lives together. There’s plenty for fans of the series to appreciate here, but those new to the series will find the story works well as a stand-alone.Highly recommended.

    I would probably never catch up with this series but I don't mind because every time I pick up where I left off it's always a good fun read.

    Murder occurs. Investigation occurs. Relationships messy. Villains Identified. Case resolved.

    Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb#9 In DeathA pseudo-military terrorist organization is planting bombs in very public, touristy areas around New York City, already claiming hundreds of lives. They hide behind the name "Cassandra" and have contacted Lt. Dallas directly, making huge monetary demands and release of "political" prisoners. Much of their activity centers around their own dogma and loyalty to a former leader of their group who was killed 30 years before during the Urban Wars. They are linked with the now defunct group "Apollo" whose name strikes fear in everyone's heart as they were responsible for destroying the Pentagon, killing over 8,000 people. Eve's job is to track down who is at the heart of this branch of the organization.At the same time, Peabody's Free Ager (and naïve) younger brother, Zeke, comes to town to visit and has been hired to do some carpentry work for a couple who is linked to another case the pair is working on. He happens to witness domestic abuse between the couple, and after trying to protect the wife, he is caught up in a serious crime himself. Eve was especially obstinate with Roarke and meddlesome in Peabody's personal life which was irritating and made me impatient to finish this one. I thought this installment was slow moving until an excellent and exciting ending which took place in a major attraction in NYC. In hindsight, this book (published in 1999) is also very bittersweet in its reminders of life before 9/11 and in its prescience for predicting major catastrophe in that beloved city.

    I love this series. I've read the book 2x and now I've also listened to the audio. This is the first book where McNab and Peabody get together - I hadn't remembered it had taken so many books actually.Another excellent installment and Ericksen as usual does a sterling job of the narration.
  • (4/5)
    As usual, J. D. Robb does not fail to deliver. Eve Dallas is receiving letters from an unknown "secret admirer" who taunts and kills without mercy. Each target is larger than the one before.
  • (4/5)
    An unknown bomber stalking New York City sends Eve Dallas taunting letters promising to wreak mass terror and destruction among the "corrupt masses." And when his work of destruction threatens those she cares for most, Eve fights back to keep him from coming to close to home. It becomes a race against the clock before the city falls. Peabody’s brother, Zeke, figures in this. Also Greek mythology—an old group called Apollo has spawned a new group, Cassandra—the prophet to whom Apollo gave the power of prophesy. What is really amazing, to me is that this book, although set in 2059, was published in 1999. The plot has to do with a group that is targeting major landmarks in New York for destruction and the Twin Towers are even mentioned as a possible target. This book came two years before the Twin Towers and other landmarks were actual targets of terrorist attacks. That is just a little spooky!
  • (4/5)
    I’m pretty sure there’s not a bad book in this series. This one contains a complicated web of crimes that not only brings Eve and Roarke closer together, but Peabody and McNabb, too!
  • (4/5)
    This tenth installment in the In Death series gives readers a bit of a break after the intensity of the previous book, Conspiracy in Death.Instead of a murderer or a serial killer, this time NYPSD homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas is up against terrorists who are bent on blowing up NYC landmarks. (This was first published in 1999, and the Twin Towers are mentioned, but spared.)Despite the subject that is now a much more serious one, Loyalty in Death is the over-the-top installment. From the first murder, with a power drill, to the last scene that has Roarke ****spoiler**** dangling from the Statue of Liberty,**** the book is larger than life. Not that the 2059 setting isn't larger than life anyway, but it's moreso than usual.Which is not to say that Loyalty doesn't have its serious moments. We're introduced to Officer Peabody's younger brother Zeke, whose tender and trusting heart gets him into trouble. And there are developments between Peabody and the thorn in her side, McNab. There's even a scene with an E & B (explosives & bombs?) lieutenant that had me near tears.I had a problem with the first murder, and the motives of the terrorist group were murky--perhaps deliberately so, but I'd have liked more resolution there.Still, it's an exciting, lively story, and the developments in the personal lives of several of the characters are well worth the read.
