Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟
Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Futuristic
This is another review that I haven’t been too keen to write. It’s not that I didn’t like the book but it wasn’t the dynamic, mastermind of a story I’d expected it to be with a nefarious part of Roarke’s mysterious and dangerous past rearing its ugly head. I remember how excited I was about this book but it pretty much tanked for me.
Shadows In Death started out well but Eve’s opponent this time, a blast from Roarke’s past, turned out to be a disappointment instead of a cunning criminal. I mean, Eve’s previous cases had criminals who escaped the law through convoluted, clever plans and Eve and Roarke still bested them. But here comes this low-life crook who only has luck on his side and everyone’s stumped? This was disbelieving to me on so many levels.
Other than that, I enjoyed the solidarity and loyalty of all the cops of the homicide division. The show of integrity made the book worth reading but if I wasn’t such a die-hard fan of the In Death series and I didn’t know the characters, my rating would have been less.
