    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    3.5-star readLieutenant Eve Dallas and Detective Delia Peabody are Homicide detectives on the New York City Police and Security Department in the near future. These women and their colleagues in various departments across the police force have tried to solve cases and gain justice for the murdered victims, even if the victim was...let's just say not a nice person. In the spring of 2061, Dallas and Peabody are called in on the murder of one Nigel ...

    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).
  • Darcy
    I liked this one, but it won't be one of the series that stands out for me. Most of the book was a bit boring. Mavis, as usual, was the bright spot. I loved her surprise for Dallas and how Dallas's interactions with Bella. The crimes in this one didn't make me very sympathetic for the victims. I thought some of them deserved what they got. I mostly felt sorry for the women and how large the group of support was.
  • Barb Lie
    Vendetta in Death by J.D. Robb is the 49th book in her wonderful In Death series. I am a huge fan of this series, with our fantastic heroine Eve Dallas, and her awesome sexy husband, Roarke. Forty Nine books later, not to mention novellas, I still cannot get enough of Eve and Roarke.Vendetta in Death was an intense and exciting story, with a violent murderer called Lady Justice. Eve is dispatched to the scene of a horribly mutilated body, and fro...
  • Paraphrodite
    4 stars.Yay! I feel as if the original JD Robb is back in this latest instalment. The writing is back to the way it used to be, with lots of funny banter and snarky interactions between the characters. The storyline is plucked straight from the current #MeToo movement. Although I have to admit it'll be very disappointing if such disrespect for women is still be going on 40 years from now. :(A very solid addition to the series... with a delightful...

    Readers new to Robb's In Death near-future murder mystery series will be able to jump right in with VENDETTA IN DEATH. Long term Eve Dallas fans will find plenty of swoony Roarke and Eve moments and a pleasing hunt for a vengeful serial killer. Robb's VENDETTA IN DEATH provides just the right mix of suspense, humor, and emotion to keep the reader glued to the book until the last captivating page.See my full review at Fresh Fiction: http://freshfi...
  • Wendy
    The best part of this book are the moments that touch on the personal growth of Eve. She sees what she has in her relationship with Roarke, and she understands how lucky she is to have that. Don't want to spoil anyone, so my only other comment is that there's a lovely scene with Bella Eve, Mavis, Summerset and Eve.
  • Alyssa
    It wasn’t as exciting as her earlier books - but I still enjoyed it.
  • Sara ✨ Next Book Review Blog ✨
    Eve is a character that always makes me smile. Some of her thoughts are so adorable as it's in complete opposite of what she does day to day. There isn't much to say about the story. The case the book is centered around was simply amazing. Really, it's was just crazy as I've come to expect from a JD Robb story.Seriously, there was a section that had me laughing hysterically at Roarke and Eve's reaction to life. I adore their antics and can't help...
  • H
    Vendetta in Death is #49 in the In Death series. It is a classic Eve Dallas story with all of the usual character interactions, whodunit, and charm. We are introduced to the murder less than halfway through the book, and we know who it is. Is it more fun when we have to solve it along with Dallas or when we see how she will catch them?There are nice callbacks to previous events throughout the series that have shaped Dallas's life and circle of fr...
  • Rebecca
    I received a digital ARC of this title from Edelweiss.Another great book in the series. The mystery wasn’t as strong as in some of the previous books, but the plot didn’t disappoint!
  • Kathy Martin
    In this 49th in the In Death series, Eve pits her wits against a murderer who tortures, mutilates and murders men and who calls herself Lady Justice. The first victim is Nigel McEnroy who is a wealthy businessman with a genius for matching the right person to the right job. He is also a serial rapist who has a thing for redheads and the habit of drugging them and then videotaping the sexual encounters. As she and Peabody look into his life, they ...

    NOTE: there may be some spoilery bits in this long, long review, so proceed at your own risk. My disorganized, incoherent thoughts on this book are as follows: Recycled themes, devices, and tropes in clued: angry, embittered Fem Fatale and/or twisted female vigilante (Strangers, Reunion, Obsession, Brotherhood, to name a few) Death side calling cards ala Creation/Obsession/Loyalty/Vengeance in Deathrebroken psychological bones (this was one that ...
  • Mari (Smut Duchess)
    almost 4 ⭐IMO Vendetta in Death wasn't the strongest book in the series, not the weakest either. If you like the chase of a good 'who done it' you'll be disappointed. The story began with the gruesome murder of a man who regularly picked up women, drugged and raped them. The next day another man who took emotional / financial advantage of a woman was murdered. After interviewing a few people Eve quickly has a hunch who the murderer is. The rest...
  • Heather
    Obviously, I’m including a content note for rape, blood, and torture. It’s at roughly the same level as many of the other books in the series, so if you’ve liked the books so far, there’s little reason why you’d stop now.It’s a plot-heavy entry into the series, rather than the occasional world- and character-heavy volumes. We do get to see Mavis in this briefly and of course Roarke comes along to help out Eve. We get the usual nods to...

    I do not know if J.D. Robb Has written a book that I did not love. I do not have favourite foods, colors, etc. If I was forced to choose a favourite series, the In Death of Eve Dallas series would have to be it. I did receive a free copy via NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I am two finger typing this while on Nava in Europe so that should give an idea of how much I love these books. It seems sure that some series can...

    Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the torture/mutilation/murder of Nigel McEnroy, a shrewd businessman with a penchant for redheads, rohypnol, and rape. Vigilante Lady Justice takes exception to his behavior and punishes Nigel with her own brand of retribution. Following McEnroy’s torture and murder, both Thaddeus Pettigrew and Arlo Kagen fall victim to Lady Justice’s vigilantism for their shoddy treatment of women. Can Eve end the self-appo...

    #49 in the Eve Dallas … In Death series. This 2019 Thriller by author J.D. Robb (a pseudonym of Nora Roberts) is a worthy addition to the series. First there is the crime itself, a nude body found nude and emasculated on a city street. As is frequently the case of late, Roarke plays a substantial role in the investigation. As also happens, Columbo like, we learn the identity of the villain early on and the puzzle becomes how Eve and her crew wi...

    Sept 3rd.... Just got the book... plan to start reading tomorrowSept 4th .... I am so into this book but I wish life would stop interfering with me reading.Sept 5th ... Still have not finished the book but much closer. JD ROBB is stealing from the headlines... ME TOO movement, characters like Jeffrey Epstein .... and she does it so well. I like how J.D. Robb is fleshing out her villain more giving them more depth but not enough to feel sorry for ...
  • Helena Stone
    Vendetta in Death is exactly what I’ve come to expect when I open a JD Robb book. It is always a delight to return to this cast of characters who have, after 49 titles feel more like family than made up creatures, and join them while they deal with more gruesome crimes.But, for me, these crimes (horrific as they were) came with an extra layer in this book. It is very hard, in a time of ‘me too’ and men getting away with sexual assault becau...
  • Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey)
    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...
  • Debra
    This is one of those series that I really need to start reading from book 1 but haven't yet (but I do plan to) but you can pick up any of these books and enjoy the story. With this story, it certainly helps reading more than one of the books in this series so you get an idea of the bigger picture. I have read quite a few of the newer releases but one of my plans for 2020 I think is going to be starting this series from the beginning because I am ...
  • M
    Solid Eve Dallas procedural with a familiar storyline. Passable but uneven villain. Fun Mavis encore! NSFW language. In DJ Robb’s newest book, the focus is on murder (which is more gruesome than usual); on the fair-to-middling murderer; and the morally despicable victims. This book is darker than most, but similar to the storyline and mood of “Brotherhood In Death,” which also had a vengeance motif. NYPSD Detectives Eve Dallas and Delia Pea...
