Genre: Sci-Fi/Mystery
Series: In Death #3
Rating: C-


Immortal in Death is the third book in J.D. Robb’s In Death series. After reading this one, I’m thinking about skipping a few books ahead to read some of the later ones in the series. These first few books are OK, but I’m not enjoying them as much as I did the later book I read.

One of the best parts of this book is that we have less Roarke than in the previous two novels. While this might be a downer for some, I’m not a fan of the man, so it was a huge positive for me. Continue reading

So, I decided to go back and read Naked in Death in the hopes it would get me on board with the relationship, which had so far only baffled and often annoyed me.

In Naked in Death, Eve Dallas is tracking down a serial killer who is preying on prostitutes. All roads seem to point to the wealthy Roarke as the lead suspect, but Eve is skeptical. Continue reading
