Book Review: Devoted In Death (In Death #41) – J.D. Robb

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Futuristic

Read Count: 3 times


Devoted In Death featured  two killers who twisted the concept of real love with their sick little hobby. Somehow, J.D. Robb portrays the worst of humankind – Ella Loo and Darryl’s joy in murder and the degradation of others  sickens. At the same time, the best of mankind is also portrayed – dedicated cops like Eve who care and don’t give up, who work hard so that justice triumphs after all. Life has more than the bad in it. The good and evil of it.

I enjoyed my favorite scenes all over again, had a blast over the funny moments and the sarcastic interactions among the characters. The love between Eve and Roarke is always such a wonder to me, how they get each other, understand each other is a miracle.

And revisiting with one of my favorite characters – William T. Banner was pure fun. He fits in with the rest of the gang and OMG, he’s so cute! The ending was wicked cool. What else could you ask for?

I loved Devoted ID the first time I read it and the third time still held the charm. 🙂

Synopsis: It’s a new year in New York city, and two star-crossed lovers have just discovered an insatiable appetite…for murder.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has witnessed some grisly crimes in her career and she knows just how dark things can get on the streets. But when a much-loved musician is found dead, Eve soon realises that his murder is part of a horrifying killing spree, stretching right across the country.
Now the killers have reached New York, and they’ve found themselves another victim. Eve knows she only has a couple of days to save a young girl’s life, and to stop the killers before their sadistic games escalate. Eve’s husband Roarke is ready to put his brains and his considerable resources behind the search. But even as the couple works closely together, time is running out…


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
