Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland on October 10, 1950. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published in 1981. Since then, she has written more than 150 novels, which have been translated into more than 25 languages. She writes romances under her own name including Montana Sky, Time and Again, Blue Smoke, Carolina Moon, The Search, Chasing Fire, and The Witness. She writes crime novels under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb including the In Death series. She has been given the Romance Writers of America Lifetime Achievement Award and has been inducted into their Hall of Fame.
In this latest series entry (after Indulgence in Death), Lt. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, investigate a case of crooked cops. Peabody has just wrapped up her first case as lead detective-an elderly store owner murdered by a trio of junkies-when she decides to end the day in the precinct's gym. Alone in the locker room's shower stall and without access to her weapon, she overhears two cops in a heated argument.
It's very clear that they are both involved in a long-running scheme of corruption and murder. Even more shocking is the identity of one of the cops; Lt. Renee Oberman is the only daughter of a highly respected former police commander. Now Dallas and Peabody, along with Dallas's husband, Roarke, and internal affairs man Webster, must find a way to bring a ring of dirty cops to justice.
Verdict: It's always fun when Dallas manipulates her enemies and watches them slowly unravel. Fast-paced and humorous, with just the right amount of romance, this is sure to please fans of this highly addictive series.
