11 times and this book is still as much fun as the first time I read it.

Whenever I need a pick-me-up, I grab Treachery ID because it never fails to lift up my spirits and put me back into fighting mode. I love the In Death series but I definitely have a soft spot for Treachery ID. This book shows a clear result of Eve’s character growth, how much she’s changed since Roarke came into her life. The core of herβ€”strength, honor, courageβ€”strengthened and deepened with love and friendship and the camaraderie of her fellow cops.

I always think that Treachery ID is the summit of the In Death series. The books that come after are good yes, but Treachery ID brought a lot of major developments into the limelight from the time Eve first met Roarke to who they became together.

So many scenes of this book are full of fun. It’s hard for me to gush about all of them without giving away any spoilers to the uninitiated πŸ˜‰ but I’ll do my best. Treachery ID emphasizes the fight between good cops and bad cops, against corruption and cops who use the system to manipulate others and line their own pockets.

Eve’s interactions with Renee absolutely revved me up and left me chuckling over how Eve creamed her. All the scenes were full of sarcastic, smart repartees that made this story a delight to read. The interactions between the cops under Eve’s command sprinkled additional humor into the story that left me in smiles.

Then there were the softer scenes where Eve and Roarke’s love for each other shone through and reinforced their relationship. They both understood how much they’d changed each other’s life and made it better. In addition, I got to see my favorite characters.

Treachery ID was full of fabulous scenes, clever dialogue and was just plain epic! I hope I never get tired of re-reading it. πŸ™‚

Synopsis: Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime-an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody’s first case as primary detective-good thing she learned from the master. But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she’s all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn’t take long to realize they’re both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve’s husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.


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.
