Devoted in Death by J. D. Robb

A new Eve Dallas story is always something to look forward to. I have read all of them and really look forward to a new title which I then read as quickly as possible because I can't put it down!

This story follows two lovers whose devotion to each other has unleashed a dark side in each of their characters and which Dallas and her murder team aided and abetted by her husband race against the clock to save the next potential victims. There is a dark sadistic element to the killers which is a counterbalance to the love stories of Eve and Roarke and McNab and Peabody. I have to admit I found the plot of this story much darker than some of the other ones.

The other characters in this futuristic series add to the overall story and show how Eve and Roarke have evolved over the last  41 books (yes 41!) from solitary, lonely people to having a large extended family of police, scientists, musicians and many more to call friends. New York in the future is a great setting as is the possibilities of what police work could involve in the not too distant future.

At the heart of the story though is the love story of Eve & Roarke and their desire to care for one another and any others, especially the victims of crime, who cross their path in need of help.

A great read!

This title was free from Netaglley in exchange for an honest review
