Obsession in Death by J.D. Robb
When a series reaches its 40th installment, you have to wonder if the spark is still going to be there.
Author J.D. Robb demonstrates that the 40th book can still keep you on the edge of your seat while it keeps you guessing about the villain. OBSESSION IN DEATHis Robb’s latest (and 40th) installment in her In Death series featuring Lt. Eve Dallas.
Narrator Susan Ericksen continues to do a superb job bringing the various characters to life. Her inflection and pace gives each character their own unique voice. Her mannerisms heightens the emotions of the story adding depth to an already suspenseful thriller.
When Lt. Eve Dallas of the NYPSD finds out she has an obsessed fan who is willing to kill for her, she is determined to put a stop to it. With each killing, the murderer leaves Eve a message from her ‘true and loyal friend’ stating they are helping Eve fight justice when the system lets her down.
Eve has to play a delicate and psychological dance with the killer because she knows in the end, the killer will turn on her as she’s not grateful for her ‘true and loyal friend’s’ gifts.
Robb once again blends the hard-boiled cop of the lieutenant with the slowly softening side of Eve. Combining with the usual mix of characters, Robb adds humor, friendship and romance for a well-balanced story.
OBSESSION IN DEATH is suspenseful and moves at a steady pace keeping your attention focused on trying to figure out the killer. With twists and turns, the ending comes with a surprising conclusion. This long-running series continues to surprise and entertain.
