Title: BORN IN DEATH
Author: JD ROBB (Nora Roberts writing as...)
Details: nr. 23 Eve Dallas & Roarke mystery
Oh, do I love this series!
The year is 2060 and Eve is called upon to investigate a double murder. An engaged couple, living in separate houses but working for the same accountancy firm, are tortured and murdered in their separate places. And the murders appear to be related to their work.
Then, while Eve is deep into her investigation, a very pregnant friend of an equally pregnant Mavis goes missing, and when Mavis asks her to find the woman, Eve should but can't refuse.
Now Eve is juggling two cases, while faced with a deadline on at least one of them. And then there is the horrifying prospect of having to be Mavis' birthing partner.
These books really never disappoint. 23 books in and I can't wait to read the next one. I like the fact that even though the books are set in the future, the world as described in the books is close enough to my world to make it all very realistic and believable.
The relationship between Roarke and Eve is deep and sexy and very satisfying to read about. While the mysteries are always well worked out and plausible.
