    Ummm J.D.Robb, can you publish the 50th book a little bit sooner? Ahhh I should've read this book very, very slowly but when it comes to Eve & Roarke, I couldn't hold myself. I literally devoured this book. What can I say more? I just love them, this series sooooo much. -------------Sneak peek of the Vendetta in Death!!! :) I can't wait to meet with Eve & Roarke again.

    So when Dexter tortures and cuts up killers he's a hero, but when a woman does it to rapists in a pseudo Wonder Woman suit she's suddenly crazy? I call sexism!!She was just living the dream...Okay, so maybe she is a little crazy. But who doesn't go a little crazy when their significant other screws them over? One time, when I was a teenage drama queen, I wrote "Asshole" in lipstick on a boyfriend's car window. I mean, sure it wasn't quite as dram...

    Well, this one started with a punch! We get to know a lot about the perpetrator from the start and most surprising is it’s a woman, though we don’t know her true identity. Her first target is a notorious predator in the corporate arena who uses his power to do some pretty awful stuff to the women who cross his path (think Harvey Weinstein) and her brand of justice is not for the faint of heart. Lieutenant Eve Dallas and team have their work c...

    I managed to leave this book on the shelf for two weeks before my steely resolve collapsed and I grabbed it and read it as fast as I could. So much for saving it and making it last.It's a good one! The topic is very relevant to current events although actions are taken way in excess of the norm (we hope anyway). There is a very crazy lady who does some really crazy things but Eve of course is on to her. The police work is good and I thought the e...

    As always it was entirely entertaining. Eve and Roarke are still kicking ass, better than ever. Their relationship is the ultimate goal!! And going strong even after 49 books. And I'm still as in love as I was reading the first book.Loved the small glimpses of all my favorite characters.

    The In Death series never gets old. Not an easy feat when you’re at book #49. Incredible. Always great to have another adventure with Eve and Roake. This time they are working to solve the Lady Justice murders. We start off with the brutal death of Nigel McEnroy who seems on the surface to be the perfect man – successful business owner, good husband and loving father but he has a very dark side and is also a rapist and sadist. When someone pa...

    Audiobook reviewI can’t believe that’s it’s been almost 50 books since I first met Eve, Roarke and the rest of them. Well more if you count the novellas. I think that very few series can survive these many books and still keep true to themselves. Story-wise Vendetta in Death isn’t the strongest in the series. I would say that it’s lost some of its shine, its essence, compared to the other books. These books have always been as much abou...

    Actual rating: 4.5 starsAfter reading four dozen books with the same characters, you’d think I’d be tired of them. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Vendetta in Death is the 49th(!) book following Eve Dallas, a Homicide detective in New York City in the near future. By this point, Eve and Roarke and every person in their lives feel tangibly real to me, and every new installment in this series feels like a chance to catch up with ...

    3.75 stars.I don’t think Eve need to handle this case, it’s too bloody easy!Peabody, Baxter or one of her team will solve it just fine!While I still love this series, I do miss big cases that we found in earliest of this series.Oh well, sigh.Now, I want to read Doyle’s and Acton’s Murder in The Blood, their new book which just published today! 3.75 stars.I don’t think Eve need to handle this case, it’s too bloody easy!Peabody, Baxt...

    Series: In Death #49Publication Date: 9/3/19Number of Pages: 368Anyone might think that after 49 books a series would start to decline, be repetitive or lose its focus. Thank goodness that isn’t even remotely the case with this series. I’m as excited for each new release as I was in the beginning – and I am NEVER disappointed. I adore all of the secondary characters and you can’t get a better set of main characters that Eve and Roarke. If...
  • Johnna Thiessen
    I love J. D Robb and her In Death series. I wait for these books to come out. I've read all of them in order. It's so easy to enter into this futuristic world and to cheer for Dallas, Roarke, Peabody and all their quirky friends to catch the bad guys and win the good fight.
  • Rachael*Caribbean*girl*bibliophile
    Spoilers aheadAfter the last book I really thought I was done with this series but apparently I can't stay away so here we go.........Women who've been raped, abused or cheated on are being gruesomely revenged in this new addition to this series. Eve has to work tirelessly to stop a female serial killer fromé kidnapping, torturing and murdering the men who abused women in some form. Even though we knew the killer in the latter part of the book t...

    Vendetta in Death is book forty-nine in the In Death series by J. D. Robb. Eve Dallas caught a murder case of a wealthy married man who was tortured and mutated before death. At first, Nigel McEnroy will like and respected businessman. At first glance, Nigel McElroy was a respected businessman and loved by everyone. However, that was not the case. When another body turns up, Eve realises that there is a person out for revenge. The readers of Vend...

    Most kids want to dress up as super heroes. When they do Mom must warn them quickly that a cape does not mean they can actually fly and get off the roof. (or maybe that was just me) In this book our killer goes after men in her guise as Lady Justice. The first one she kills was such a horrible man that Eve had to remind herself of the motto in the bull pen to keep going. "No Matter you Race, Creed, Sexual Orientation, or Political Affiliation, W...

    The Eve Dallas series is an automatic one click for me even after 48 books.That said, I think it’s time to give Eve a new journey. That’s what made this series great over the crime/police procedural aspects.It’s Eve herself that makes the series. We’ve watch her grow, stumble, recover, open. But we need something new.Eve won the battle with opening herself up for the love of a good man and a growing cast of friends. We saw her work throug...

    The storyline was kind of predictable but I enjoyed the Eve-and-Roarke moments and the small parts of my other favorite characters The storyline was kind of predictable but I enjoyed the Eve-and-Roarke moments and the small parts of my other favorite characters 😊
  • Kathy Davie
    Forty-ninth in the In Death romantic suspense series and revolving around Lieutenant Eve Dallas in the New York of April 2061.My TakeWhat a load of crap. I don't know who actually wrote this. If it really was "Robb", a.k.a., Nora Roberts, she is really bored with writing the series. It was all surface...yuck...with assorted details tossed in that relate to the characters, but are nothing as usually presented. It simply did not read true to previo...
  • Monnie
    3.5 stars, actually.If I had to describe this book - the latest in the popular series featuring NYPD Lt. Eve Dallas, of which I've read almost all - in just one word, it would be this: Bland.On the plus side, readers do see glimpses of Eve's uber-wealthy and hunky Irish husband Roarke's love for his wife (he's on my Top 10 list of favorite book heroes, I hasten to add), but the couple's sizzling (and fairly graphic) bedroom antics that heated up ...

    Did I say that I love Eve and Roarke? LOLWhen I started this series I had more than 40 books to read one after the other and I was great! Now I must wait months for the next one to come out and it's torture!I love all the parts in this book: the mistery and the romance and the friendship! Unfortunately here the friendship part was small and I missed it very, very much! I missed Somerset and Eve's banter when she enters her home. I missed McNab an...

    I love this series and the characters. Vendetta in Death was fast, fast, fast. Everything happened in 3-4 days. There was only fleeting moments of personal developments. There was a bit of relationship development for Roarke and Eve but limited. She got to the suspect quickly and shut things down fast. The crimes, I guess like always, were horrific.
  • ☆°•.. Jillie Anne ..•°☆
    Ok here it comes. If this was the first JD Robb book you read in the series it would be a great read. Fun and action packed. I love Nora Roberts. The writing is always perfect and well planed. The audio book is everything you could want and more. The narration is above perfect. However I think this will end the series for me. This book could have been any of the other 10 in this series. It felt like there was a formula to write this. The bad guy ...

    Well we have the 49th in Death novel and it's pretty solid. I am going to say though, if Bella (Mavis's daughter) is 1 freaking years old and can somehow read we have issues. Also it's only been a year?? "Born in Death" was book number 23 and I don't want every book to be a year, but good lord can they at least be 6 months or something? I think the biggest issue I have is that that Eve and Roarke have grown so much in such a short amount of time ...

    Lady Justice seeks revenge for wronged women, those who have been abused or controlled in some way by unscrupulous and/or manipulative men. Once she has chosen her target she makes herself as fascinating and attractive as she can to lure the predator into her trap. An extreme trap that ensures their death and mutilation. Lady Justice’s first victim is Nigel McEnroy, a wealthy businessman who uses his position and power as a guarantee his crimes...

  • Micky Cox
    I absolutely love this series! The audiobook version really helps elevate and bring the characters as well as story lines to life! In this installment justice comes in the form of a serial killer after men of poor moral character and Eve & gang must rush to find the killer and stop them before more men are killed at a continuing rapid pace. While you don't have to read the entire series to follow the storyline of this book, you would gain hours u...
  • Stephaniec
    I'm really glad I read this whole series again in anticipation of this release, I enjoyed it all the more with all the characters and their growth fresh in my mind. I know there's another release early in the new year but I am already sad to be moving on from this world even tho my backlog of releases to read is huge....I highly recommend if you haven't read this series yet you should give it a try, it has a little bit of everything (action, roma...
  • CatBookMom
    Eve has moved into a much kinder, gentler phase. Not a bad thing, at all, just unexpected. Doesn't mean she's not still a kick-ass, but she seems to stop a beat and think about the people around her, doesn't just steam-roller over them.Many of the issues, even many of the details, in this are quite similar to "Brotherhood in Death," and I'm trying to decide why the author would repeat this so close to the last book (#42).
  • Dani
    5/5 starsLoved this one! Gahh so excited for #50!Every time I hear there is another book in the In Death series I'm grateful for everything. the cover, love the synopsis. My body and mind are ready for more Roarke and Eve..J.D thank you, thank you, thank you for continuing to write this series
  • Diane
    Well, what a ride that was! A woman scorned is not something (or someone) you want to mess with guys! Be careful, Lady Justice may just have you on her list! I figured out fairly early who the killer was, but still a great story line with the typical bantering we have come to love in this series.Two thumbs up and 4.5 stars.From the blurb: She calls herself Lady Justice. And once she has chosen a man as her target, she turns herself into a tall bl...

    Thank you, St. Martin's Press, for providing this ARC!Eve Dallas and company are at it again. In this installment, Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD is after a killer going by the name of Lady Justice. As always, it's a treat to be able to visit with these characters who are as familiar to us as a close friend.Lady Justice believes that she must give justice to those women who may have been mistreated and abused by men. She has taken it upon her...
