    One thought on “Seduction in Death”

    1. The author was in top form when she wrote this one. Eve and Roarke have been married nearly one year and their relationship is pretty near perfect. They joke around, fight a bit but usually playfully and they have each others backs. Peabody and McNab are on and off all through the book but again there is a lot of humour in the situations that occur between them. And of course Eve's opinions on the matter are hilarious.We see a gentle side of Summerset, quite a lot of the apparently over weight G [...]

    2. 4 I Love A Good Mystery StarsI love these books! They are interesting and fast paced and although Eve does what cops all over the world do in reality, which is investigate, not going around beating up guys until someone talks, the books manage not to become tedious.And although I love the mystery suspect of the books, I enjoy watching Eve work, I find her fear of primping hilarious and I always have a good laugh with Peabody's and McNab's antics, there is one aspect of the book that is beginning [...]

    3. This one was very disturbing for so many reasons but like all of them, so very good too. Full review to come later.

    4. 3.5 stars“Predators did not need mercy.”― Conn IgguldenThroughout the story we as a reader know how difficult it is for Eve to deal with this case (view spoiler)[as it involves rape (hide spoiler)].There are innocent women who go out on a date but do not survive the night. We as readers know the identity of the killers from the very start and it's all about Eve Dallas finding them and stopping them in their sick game!The chapters that were from the killer's perspective were SICK!!Eve Dalla [...]

    5. Lucky number 13 in the series and it was a good one. Eve is trying to catch two guys who are using a date rape drug to rape and kill their victim. It's a game to them where they get points.We know who the murderers are for the whole book, but it was still a fun ride to watch the process. Even better than that is the characters and relationships between all of them. There is something to be said for long series because you really get involved in their world and feel like the characters are old fr [...]

    6. Book 13 and it is still fresh. I still crave more of Roarke and Eve. I love them. I think I love her more than I love him. She is so strong, independent, honest."Dachas," she said, "is, I'm told, Gaelic for hope."Lets get the negatives out of the way. Nope, it is not! It has been more than 30 years since I studied Irish in the classroom but some words stay with you. Didn't even have to google this one. The Irish/Gaelic word for "hope" is "Dóchas"! Nora, if you want to hire me as your Irish expe [...]

    7. I'm amazed how Ms. Roberts manages to write such a different, but Always interesting, crimes! WOW!!!And I'm amazed that these crimes are always a possible ones! Human idiocy and bloodthirst will never cease to astonish me!!!Here we have two killers. Young, rich, pampered. And totally out of their minds crazy!!!Here the concept of romance is used as a deadly game! How crazy is that???!!!I'm also amazed by the author's ability to insert witticisms, smart remarks in a very serious moments thus defu [...]

    8. 4.5 stars - Romantic Suspense/Futuristic/Romantic ThrillerWow! Thirteen books in and I don't see myself tiring of this series. With a smart, gruff, edgy, tough, and not always easy to like heroine, Eve Dallas, fabulous secondary characters, my all-time favorite swoonalicious hero, Roarke, interesting and unique futuristic New York setting, and dark, well-written police procedural suspense, In Death continues to deliver. I'm still overwhelmed by how many books there are in this series, but I've g [...]

    9. Another wonderful re-readLoved Roarke's reaction to Eve being sick and her learning to deal with it. (Thanks to Summerset!) Lots of character growthRoarke is getting more involved in the case. Eve is still extremely annoyed, but letting him. Progress on the Peabody/McNab front, as well. "We're a couple." "A couple of what?" Vintage Eve. Loved Eve's rant in Whitney's officed his reaction. On to the next!

    10. 1st read: 30th March-15th AprilBest one-liners:Eve: "Okay, now that I've let you fuck me and feed me, thereby satisfying all immediate appetites, I've got work."Roarke: "Aren't you lucky to have me? A rhetorical question, darling," he said and stuffed caviar into her mouth. I still can't get over how amazing this narrator is!2nd read: 15th May-23rd May

    11. Here we have two friends playing a game by raping women and killing them and Eve tries to find them before they kill more women. At this point of the series I don't know what else to say, the entire series is an experience you don't want to miss. I love it.

    12. We have young and innocent women who gets seduced thru the net with poetry, travel and romance. They end up meeting said Romeo and don't survive the night. It is up to our kick ass cop to find the sick and twisted killer. As usual, Roarke is being his perfect self. Eve is in her usual bitchy but tenacious self. Mavis and Trina's appearance were mag! I am so glad Peabody and McNabb are together for real.

    13. Seduction in Death is the 13th book in the gritty, futuristic detective series featuring Eve Dallas and her husband, sexy billionaire Roarke. Eve and her team are after a serial killer who is meeting women through chat groups. He's targeting single women with poetry, flowers and romance before meeting them in person and slipping a lethal date rape drug into their cocktail. To add to the intrigue, it looks like there are two different killers working as a team, making it a game where each accumul [...]

    14. Suspense 4.25 stars / Romance 4 starsThe title says it all. Interesting crime trope. But the villains were clear in the middle of the story. I like the tension till the end.Romance. Eve and Roarke almost perfect.McNab - mega a§§hole and Peabody was pathetic. He slept with many OWs, threw it in her face and she just took him back? Give me a break!!! This installment ruined Peabody's character for me.

    15. Women are being seduced to death in a scene set with candles, rose petals, fine wine, music and poetry. Two bored young men are playing a game to see who can score the most points in this dangerous game. Although the reader knows early in the book who the seducers are, it takes some exceptional work by Eve and her team (and expert civilian consultant - aka Roarke) to work out who they are and discover secrets going back decades.Another totally engaging book in this series, with Roarke and Eve ma [...]

    16. Posted on Under the CoversThe pursuit of love has never been so deadly. A killer seduced by the idea of love targets victims of an online poetry chatroom where after making an arrangement to meet, he wines and dines them, slipping potent and rare date-rape drugs into their drinks until all they feel is euphoria and desire. These unsuspecting romantics continue to be targeted by this anonymous killer. Coming in to stop this string of murders from occurring, Eve Dallas uses everything in her arsen [...]

    17. What a despicable pair of spoiled brats, with one being so much worse than the other. And sadly, even though this is set in the future, it's not beyond the realm of actually happening.Louise and Charles meet in this book - gotta love that couple. Ian and Charles get into a good knock around fight with "Dishy Dimato" cooling them off!McNab and Peabody get back together and this time exclusively!Two thumbs up and 5 stars!

    18. My whole review is spoilers so don't read it unless you are masochistic. (view spoiler)[I didn't care for the mystery so much, the one guy so weak and dependent upon the other, then the other sweeping in and, in the end, being very ineffectual. Well, it just left me a little wanting in the crime/drama that I get from JD. There are some HUGE moments for Eve; horrifying dreams, horrifying thoughts that speak to her throughout, horrifying strains on her nerves as she tries to 'stand for the dead' w [...]

    19. Two young men with everything going for them look like good ideas for dates. But what if they are psychopathic serial killers? Hope EHarmony screens for these things. They might want to include on their questionnaires, "do you like long walks and drugging your date before you rape her and throw her off a balcony?" Great book by one of the best writers in the world!

    20. 5 stars. This series is so awesome. Eve really had he work cut our for her on this one. It was a bit dark, but the banter with everyone makes it fun and lightens the subject matter up a bit. This is quickly turning into a favorite series. I can't wait to read more.

    21. This being the thirteenth book of an amazing series, I'm having trouble thinking up new ways to praise every next one, no matter how very different they are all from one another. (I can't imagine writing a review when I reach book 30-something)This one is sort of a lucky read for me, because I was gone for two weeks and out of the several books from the series I saw in one bookstore, this was one. Being the one I've reached I couldn't believe my luck and bought the paperback.And it was an engros [...]

    22. Never gets old, never. Eve and Roarke always slay me but Eve really did me in here. As a cop, not just her job but who she is at her core, Eve always stands for the victims of the murders she investigates. They mean something to her and justice for them is paramount to solving the crime. But she suffered for this one. And because she did, Roarke did. *sigh* For her to be one of the strongest, toughest, most badass female characters I've ever read and loved, she has some very fragile, breakable p [...]

    23. Kasus kali ini adalah tewasnya para wanita dlm kencan buta. Diawali dgn perkenalan lewat dunia maya, para korban dirangsang dgn obat, berhubungan badan hingga mereka tewas. Eve Dallas menyelidiki kasus ini dan menemukan bhw pelakunya tidak hanya satu orang. Ketika penyelidikan mengarah pada obat yg diproduksi salah satu laboratorium ternama, Eve tidak buang-buang waktu utk mengkonfirmasikan pd si empunya. Dan saat mengetahui bhw salah satu pelaku adalah cucu dari pemilik laboratorium tsb, Eve me [...]

    24. Yes,yes I know I jumped from the first book to this one but I needed it for a challenge but it's still a great book. Eve's patience was tested in this book. Really a crazy ride with an expensive date rape drug. Whoa.

    25. I'm glad that Susan Ericksen re-recorded this book with the right voices, it makes it that much more enjoyable.

    26. Includes one of Dallas' best rants, chewing the hide off another division's incompetent detective; Charles and Louise meet.
