Judgement in Death (In Death Series) by J.D.

Robb

Roarke And Eve Are At It Again!

She stood in Purgatory and studied death. The blood and the gore of it, the ferocity of its glee. it had come to this place with the wilful temper of a child, full of heat and passion and careless brutality. In an uptown strip joint a cop is found bludgeoned to death. The weapons a baseball bat. The motive is a mystery. Its a case of serious overkill that pushes Eve Dallas straight into overdrive. Her investigation uncovers a private club thats more than a hot spot. Purgatorys a last chance for atonement where everyone is judged. Where your ultimate fate depends on your most intimate sins. And where one cops hidden secrets are about to plunge innocent souls into viceridden damnation... An off-duty cop has been killed in Roarke's Club, Purgatory, and as Eve unravels the mystery, not only does she find bad cops, but one of Roarke's oldest and deadliest enemies, Max Ricker. Ricker wants to destroy Roarke and what better way then using Eve. And as the story unfolds, the body count rises as more cops turn up dead, but why? Is it a vendetta or something more sinister? You won't be necessarily surprised, but you will love the character and plot development. On top of everything else, while trying to solve the murder, Eve begins to have memories about her childhood, and realizes that Max Ricker has ties to her disturbing past. She is extremely surprised to find that Roarke's oldest enemy probably knew what her father was doing to her in Dallas, and made no attempts to stop him. (In later installments, you find that Roarke and Eve's lives were intertwined long before they met, since childhood. Both of their fathers knew each other and were involved in criminal enterprises. So, it would seem that Roarke and Eve were destined to be together.) In summary, I think this novel is one of my favorites in the series. Not only did we see Roarke "lose his cool", but we get to see how he feels about the appearance of Eve's past lover, Webster (an internal affairs detective

who appears to know more than he is willing to say). I think it was nice to see Roarke "off stride" for a change. I will also say that one disadvantage for me is that I am not reading the series in order, so I am not sure if what I am about to say is relevant. What I would have like to read is a story about how Ricker's son (who was mentioned a lot) handles the fact that Eve and Roarke stopped his lunatic father? I think that would be a wonderful story and an interesting villian in a future story.
