Glory in Death (In Death, #2)Glory in Death by J.D. Robb

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book of the 'In Death' series.

The time is the year 2058 in New York and Eve Dallas finds herself in search of a serial killer who targets high-powered career women. She is focused on finding the killer, but her well-to-do beau, Roarke finds ways to take her mind off her work and relax from time to time.

Although this book is mainly a suspense/mystery, it is also considered a suspense romance due to some of the 'steamier' scenes. I'm not sure how to feel about Roarke, Eve's love interest. At this point I don't really trust him, as he seems like a shady businessman. Eve's character is a head-strong homicide detective who has trouble letting others into her personal life. I especially look forward to learning about Eve's past, which very little has been revealed at this point in the series.

This following quote is Roarke describing the type of person Eve is and I found it to be a great description of her character: "You're strong, and you're moral, and sometimes you make yourself ill with compassion for the innocent."

I'm not normally a murder-mystery, sci-fi/futuristic reader, but because I enjoy books by Nora Roberts, I felt I needed to at least try this series written under her pen name, J.D. Robb.

One thing mentioned in this futuristic book that I highlighted was this passage referring to Eve's commander's wife, Anna Whitney:
"It wasn't the state salary for full-time parents that had swayed her. It had been the thrill of being in on each and every stage of childhood development."
If only full-time parents received salaries for parenting! Ha!

I definitely enjoyed this book more than the first. This quote from the book summarizes why I will continue reading this series: "Lieutenant Eve Dallas crouched down beside death and studied it carefully. The sights and scents were familiar, but each time, there was something new. Both victim and killer left their own imprint, their own style, and made murder personal." Reading the 'In Death' series is like watching a mystery series on television, but even better!
