Dark in Death (In Death, #46) by J.D. Robb

Dark in Death (In Death, #46)

It was a stab in the dark.On a chilly February night, during a screening of Psycho in midtown, someone sunk an ice pick into the back of Chanel Rylan’s neck, then disappeared quietly into the crowds of drunks and tourists in Times Square. To Chanel’s best friend, who had just slipped out of the theater for a moment to take a call, it felt as unreal as the ancient black-and-white movie up on the screen. But Chanel’s blood ran red, and her de...

    I’m a reader first and foremost. I love books; I’ve loved books since I was a toddler and would bring my grandpa a stack of my “favorites” to read every night before bed. According to my mother, my grandpa would try and skip pages or hide a couple books under the couch cushion, but I would always catch him and demand (I’m sure in a very cute way) that he read every page in every book I brought.My love for stories has grown with me. I re...

    This Book 46! in the series was even better than many of the more recent ones. It was like some of the mojo that was lost in the middle somewhere came roaring back in for this book. Eve was edgier, snarkier, more cop-like....Well, damn. I was going to give you quotes, but my e-reader decided that I was running on empty for too long and shut me out. You just have to take my word for it. She uses the f-word both liberally and expeditiously - you kn...

    As usual Robb starts her book with a killer of an opening scene (pun intended). I am going to the cinema this afternoon myself and if anyone is sitting behind me I think I might feel a teeny bit uncomfortable. Dark in Death is another totally enjoyable book in this great series. After the gripping start it turned into one of the quieter books. There was a heap of police procedure, Roarke and Eve were in a good place, Eve didn't get attacked or sh...

    A young woman is murdered in a Times Square video palace during the infamous shower scene in Hitchcock’s classic, Psycho. Lieutenant Eve Dallas catches the case and is stymied after her preliminary investigation turns up empty. That is until she discovers the dispassionate connection to an earlier murder case and a fictional detective book series. There were many modern themes in this story that made it clever and interesting. It was hard to mi...

    Maybe it was the fact that I was feeling under the weather this weekend, spent yesterday in bed, trying to ward off a bad cold. It dragged for me. Nearly started skimming towards the end. It just did not seem to have the same dynamics that her other books usually do. I have never given her books less than 4 and 5 stars. I cannot give it more than 3. Quite disappointed actually.She never failed to fascinate, frustrate, and fulfill ...As I say, may...

    After more than 50 In Death stories, my reviews are starting sound the same. In my defense, the last few of books sound very similar by now, as well. Still, knowing that there are 2 new novels to expect every year, can be counted a sort of a treat... to the regular fan/reader. That is to say, the book I read before this one bored me to tears, so "Dark In Death" made for a welcome change of pace. And it had several funny sequences too.There's a cr...

    There is no doubt about it! JD ROBB is a master storyteller. After 46 novels, she still amazes, stuns, captivates, and spellbinds each and every time. As the alter ego of Nora Roberts, she is known for her prolific writing, and gripping plots.I personally look forward to each new book in this series. So far, even after reading 46 books, almost the entire catalogue written by JD Robb, I have not come to the point yet where I feel her stories have ...

    Full review now posted!Hell hath no fury like a writer who feels their work has been belittled and ignored.The adventures of Eve Dallas are always a delight to read. Dark in Death is the 46th full-length installment in Nora Roberts’ In Death series, penned under her J.D. Robb pseudonym. While they’re not always amazingly original or anything, they’re always fun to read. By this point, there are about a dozen characters who have been involve...

    I've been looking forward to this for a while. I'm late to this series and so have read this out of sequence while I'm still on catch up with the rest. However I really love these books. I like the futuristic setting which makes a pleasant change from other police procedural books and gives some nice touches. I really need to find a way to get an automatic coffee maker into my car! The characters have been well rounded since book one and even pl...

    Lieutenant Eve Dallas had just arrived home and poured a glass of wine when her link buzzed. Another murder - this time in the theatre where Psycho was playing. The ice pick in the victim's neck meant immediate death - and Eve was on the way again. Murder was her business - she had another killer to catch.But it was when a police procedural author, Blaine DeLano arrived at the station with Nadine Furst that Eve experienced a break through of sort...

    Good book - held my interest throughout and I easily polished it off in two days. But compared to others I've read in this series (one of my favorites, BTW), it just didn't have much pizzazz - kind of like driving a Maserati with half-inflated tires.Even though Lt. Eve Dallas and her hunky Irish husband Roarke heat up a few rooms in their house now and then, they seemed a titch off their usual game (even Roarke's faithful majordomo, the curmudgeo...

    3 stars - Futuristic/Crime/Mystery/Romantic Suspense/Science FictionI love the In Death series, but this latest installment was a disappointment for me. The mystery/crime part of the story didn’t hold my interest, and there wasn’t much personal time or development for Eve and Roarke or the other regular characters. It just felt like a filler book that doesn’t really add anything to the series. I’m still a devoted fan of the series, and I ...

    Not one of my favorite In Death books. Several of the side characters felt forced in versus a necessary part of the story. Also, the writing seemed off compared to the other books in the series.

    I’m in awe of J.D. Robb’s writing ability. With forty-five instalments in this series already, Robb is still able to come up with complex and unique ideas. This time a blooming actress is killed in a dark theatre. Stabbed by ice pick is the weapon of choice, which leaves a lot of suspects for Eve because it’s such a popular weapon. I like the way she’s able to set up the scene immediately and there’s no stalling when it comes to the mur...

    I was so excited to get back to Eve and Roarke and the rest of the gang. For a solid year I was reading the In Death Books somewhat back to back and was never without one. So waiting a couple of months for Dark in Death drove me a little batty.My love for these fictional characters will never waver. I love Eve. She can be such a hardass for sure but I adore the way she melts at things Roarke says or does or how she protects Peabody or Nadine. I e...

    Another AWESOME addition to this BRILLIANT series! It's so good to be back in Eve's world again. I really felt the absence of these characters when I finished number 45 months ago. "Don't be such a bitch"."I have to be true to myself." (Eve, how I love thee)September is still so far away for the next one. *sigh*

    Does not disappoint! Another solid read in the In Death series by JD Robb. I've been reading this series since 2003, since before it was well known she was Nora Roberts, and I keep expecting the next book and then the next book and then the next book to dip in terms of quality of style and content and originality, but it just doesn't (thank goodness!).In #46, Dark in Death, JD ROBB almost makes a play on her own life in ways, as Eve is after a mu...

    “How do you know that? You couldn’t have finished the book.” (Roarke)“I skipped to the end.” (Eve)“You…” He closed his eyes as he drunk more wine. “Some things are unforgivable.” (Roarke) … but I do them every time! Go, Eve, I’m with you!!! LOL “Plus a lot of them who write multiple times talk about the make-believe people like they’re actually people. Some of them get a little pissy when those make-believe people don...

    Not too much to say about this one. It didn't really grab me and I did have a hard time sticking with it. That usually never happens when I am reading an "In Death" book. Even when it's ticking me off, I am engrossed. I just felt slightly bored by this one. I do have to say that a serial killer (New York is full of them apparently) murdering women in this one due to books reminded me of a t.v. show. I honestly can't recall which one, but it was b...

    Well what can I say - I feel I can only give this book 3 1/2 stars instead of the normal 5 stars the Author normally inspires . If this book had been written by anyone else I would have been happy to say it was very good but the Author's other books have been so much better I would hold her to a higher standard ............ I don't know what happened but after finishing the book I felt .... FLAT .Where was the tension ....the race against time......

    Took a while, but I finally finished this book. A fairly good read, just not J.D. Robb's best in my honest opinion. I would have liked a bit more action in the book, i.e. things getting blown up, Eve tackling a big perp or two, etc.The book does a very good job of giving the reader an insight into the workings of what goes on with an author when they are writing a book and the fans that bombarb them - maybe what J.D. Robb herself goes through whe...

    This is book number 46 in the Death Series. It is amazing that Robb keeps coming up with fresh ideas. She has not repeated a story line as of yet. In this story Dallas is investigating murders which the killer is copying from a mystery novel.The book is well written. The plot is interesting. I enjoy the various characters in the series. I never get bored as Robb uses different characters in each of her books. Robb is making Eve Dallas more comple...

    Well, Ms.Roberts is at it again and she never lets me down. Whether it's the cop camaraderie, or Eve Roarke relationship, or the mind f*cking serial killer plot and definitely Eve's psycho-analysis, it always impresses me. And this one ain't no different !!The story starts with a murder, a violent one at that. So, imagine this. Two women are classic movie lovers and are in a cinema hall to watch "Psycho". Now, on screen, there is a murder scene g...

    One of the best books in the series. I love the scenes with Galahad. We usually only get a few passing references to him but this time we got more interactive scenes. Also, Robb's exploration of the theme of women in this book posed some interesting dynamics between all the different female characters.

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Little, Brown Book Group UK for an advance copy of Dark in Death, the 46th novel in the futuristic Lieutenant Eve Dallas series, set in New York 2061.An actress is murdered by an ice pick in her neck while watching a film. With no witnesses, no apparent motive and no clues Eve is stumped until an author turns up and claims that this murder and another one three months before are scenes from her Dark series of t...
