Reviews Leverage in Death (In Death, #47)

  • Corina☞BookTwinsReviews
    4.5 starsI love this series so much. That's just fact. Every single book is a pleasure to read.Leverage in Death was thrilling, full of favorite characters and a plot that was riveting and exciting. But best of all, the author gave me many scenes of Roarke and Eve.In Leverage in Death Eve is hunting the elusive WHY. Trying to find answers to why, who, and how the cases and people are linked. The search is taking a toll on her because she cares so...
  • Brenda
    The bomb killed twelve and injured more – the identity of the bomber shocked everyone. But it seemed there was a different agenda. Immediately Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her team were on the case, with the help of expert civilian, Roarke…The usual shenanigans with many laugh out loud moments filled author J.D. Robb’s latest, Leverage in Death. I love the entertainment this series gives me, and even though there are now 47 books in the series...
  • Jilly
    I love this series and always look forward to the next book, but this one fell a little flat. There are some things that happen over and over again that I don't mind, like the cop who wears the loud ties, the computer geeks always wearing crazy outfits and dancing around in their department, and Eve acting like she was raised on another planet with how little she understands idioms or simple make-up. Even the murders have a bit of a formula: she ...

    I received a digital ARC of this title from Edelweiss for an honest review.Eve is back and this time she's investigating a suicide bombing in the corporate offices of an airline. One Monday morning, Paul Rogan walks into a meeting of a merger of his company with another, wearing a vest full of explosives and sets them off, killing 11 people on sight, and injuring 9 more. To all appearances, Rogan was an extremely happy family man. He loved his jo...

    Another win!!! I love everything in this series! But,the cherry on top of all the excellency here are the complexity of the crimes and the very linear way Eve & Co. manage to find out who did it! Very, very, very good! “Soup. Vegetable Beef.”Eve took a sniff then a swallow before she started winding out of the underground lot. It smelled like pepper and tasted like spicy, liquified cardboard, heated to cautiously approach lukewarm. “Beef ...

    4.5 Roarkey stars ARC Received for an honest reviewYou would think that after over 20 years and nearly 50 books in a series, I would be growing tired of the In Death series, however it is the complete opposite.Each and every time a new Dallas and Roarke (or as I have named him, Raawwrke lol) book is released I am like a kid a Christmas. And Leverage In Death is no exception.Dallas is on the hunt for a killer who is certainly racking up a body c...
  • Fran
    The past few books in the In Death series haven't been all that memorable for me, and even though I've given them all four stars (the loyal fangirl in me can never rate these books any lower), I admit some of them have been in the low four star level. Leverage in Death happened to be one I really enjoyed. I thought the case was interesting and I loved the interactions between the main characters—Eve and Peabody, Eve and Bella, and most especial...
  • Mary B. Grove
    I didn’t connect with this oneJust never really got into it. The villains felt too far off-screen, there was none of the Dallas Peabody repartee that I enjoy and not much Dallas-Roarke interplay either. The story felt somewhat perfunctory, and there was little satisfaction in the villains being caught—perhaps because their motivation felt so unreal. I was hoping we’d get more of the Econo CEO, Willemina (?) or the children of the Quantum CE...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    This series is always an excellent read. After 47 books, things aren’t dull.I have no real complaints and liked that my favorite couple had a normal fight. I think there is more there to explore.Maybe next book, things will get hot for Eve choices put on the line. What would happen when Rourke learns the truth about Summerset and that Eve kept that from him? What if Peabody or Rourke got into actual danger. Anyway, no complaints.Susan Erickson ...

  • farmwifetwo
    Same old... but that would be why I read them.
  • Belles
    So many wonderful little moments in this one.
  • Lynnette
    I received an eGalley in exchange for an honest review. The latest installment in the Eve Dallas series opens with a bang - literally. Someone is forcing people to wear suicide vests and cause maximum damage. Will she be able to catch the suspect before another person dons the vest? While Eve is chasing down suspects she also has to deal with the Oscars and Nadine’s nomination. Which one will be the biggest headache? The bombs or the Oscars?
  • Tina Christopher
    Holy moly! I have no idea how 47 books in J.D./Nora still comes up with new and heinous crimes but she does. Leverage in Death is another tightly woven, edge-of-your-seat reads you don't see coming.Following Eve as she disentangles the threads and learning why the villains did what they did really hit me in the gut. The lives they destroyed for that?!I wished for a touch more Eve/Roarke moments, but that was the only downside to another fabulous ...

    A man walks into a merger meeting and blows himself up, killing twelve people in the process. Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon moves the supposed murderer onto her victims list, since it looks like the man was threatened and coerced in executing the attack to protect his wife and daughter.The attack doesn't smell of terrorism, but Eve's husband, Roarke, might have found the real motive. Money and stock trading.Eve's gut tells her the perpetrators would...
  • Beth
    Another fantastic In Death chapter!This is another great addition to the In Death series, my favorite of the last couple of releases. The premise is different and intriguing. The first murders have to do with the ins and outs of the stock market, buying on margin and leverage (hence the title) and that section got a bit dense for someone who is really out of their element with that topic but it doesn’t last long. The idea of someone being coerc...
  • Diane
    Seemed like forever for this book to get published, but well worth the wait! My favourite series, hands down.Would have liked more action in this edition, but overall a pretty good read! Some good banter between the characters and some angst thrown in to boot!From the blurb: Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in Leverage in Death, the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from J...

    A board meeting to finalize the merger of two airline companies is devastated by a suicide bomber, an executive who has been threatened with the lives of his wife and child in order to carry out the deed. Eve brings Roarke into the investigation for his expertise in the world of high-stakes business to discover who benefits from the tragedy. The sideline light foil story is that of the upcoming Oscars where the movie based on Nadine's book of Eve...
  • Darcy
    This one was another good installment with Eve and her crew. The crimes seemed bad to me because they used a person’s love against them. I was happy when Eve picked up on that quickly and how they all found the bad guys and stuck it to them.I loved that Peabody got to cross off something on her bucket list, loved that Nadine had such a great night. Bella and Mavis visiting Eve at work was great, loved that Eve wasn’t sure what to do with the ...

    When a cruelly coerced suicide bomber annihilates a merger finalization meeting, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the baffling incident. As she digs into the case, will she find simple sabotage or is something far more sinister behind the inexplicable act of terror?In this, the forty-seventh outing for Eve and company, all the expected characters are in place and the futuristic city remains, as always, well-drawn and completely believable...
  • Rosemary Dreyer
    Another wild ride with the “I’m Death” series. What I loved: amazingly well-crafted writing; the humor even midst the death and gore (all the Malapropisms by Eve); the solid and cherished relationships of the characters; and the ever-unfolding of death and mayhem that occurs, even set in the future. What I was disappointed in: I wanted more time spent with Mira and her husband, Mavis and Leonardo, and I missed the primping/spa sessions with...
  • Joy
    What turned a kind and successful executive into a suicide bomber. Why? A complex and psychological plot, plus further development of the characters among Eve's coterie. The pace in the last half of the book just doesn't let up.As is my habit, I bought this new In Death within hours of its release and read it as soon as I was free.
  • Michele bookloverforever
    Leverage In Death: An Eve Dallas NovelThe plot is slowly revealed in this one. Lots of very real "bangs" though and far too many dead people. Sociopathic bad guys. Greed, violence, terror. Sweet ending.
  • Kiersten Smith
    Another excellent addition to the series... As always, the action was intense, the mystery well-plotted and the dialogue and emotion between the characters was the glue that holds it all together. I can always count on these books to be a genuine pleasure.
  • Natalie
    Giving it three stars for now. I always like returning to the world of Dallas and Roarke, but I felt there was something missing in this one. I did not connect to the mystery as much as I did in other books in the series.
  • Rosemary Potter
    Another great edition to the Eve and Roarke story. Just love the interaction with all the secondary characters.
  • CatBookMom
    Parts of this were really good, a couple of things seemed unnecessarily silly (e.g., Peabody getting wildly over-revved on caffeine).
  • Fiona
    A very straightforward Eve Dallas book this time. No real suspense or drama, just a good police procedural. Enjoyable but not really at the standard I’ve come to expect from this series.
  • Heather
    Leverage in Death is the 47th full novel in J.D. Robb's In Death series, and the magic is - unbelievably - still there. Marketing executive Paul Rogan shows up to a merger meeting in a suicide vest, killing himself and eleven others and wounding even more. What prompted Rogan, a devoted family man who loved his job and was firm friends with his boss, to commit this horrible act. Was it an act of terrorism? A mental breakdown? Or was Rogan as muc...
