PROMISES IN DEATH
TITLE: PROMISES IN DEATH
AUTHOR: J.D. ROBB
Details: no. 28 Eve Dallas & Roarke Mystery
The last book I started during the Read-a-Thon, I didn't get to finish it within the allotted time. But, it was good enough to draw me back as soon as I got out of bed this morning.
Every murder investigation is personal to Eve. When the victim is a fellow cop it becomes even more so. And Amarylis Coltrane was also in a relationship with Morris, a close colleague and friend of Eve's.
But, as Eve starts to investigate, she runs into some potentially very disturbing facts. Amarylis used to be involved with Alex Ricker, the son of a criminal Eve put away for life a few years ago. Was she on the take? Or was she killed by one of her immediate colleagues, and if so, why?
As Eve gets threatened personally it only serves to make her more determined to uncover the solution out of a murky mess of twisted relationships and betrayal.
The sexy part in these books seems to be getting a bit less as the series goes on, and I wouldn't mind if that wasn't the case. On the other hand, the mysteries are getting better, so maybe it's not a bad trade off.
