My review of Midnight In Death


The number-one New York Times bestselling In Death series explodes with intrigue, passion, and suspense. Now, Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, propels you into the darkest night of Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s life–when a killer comes to call…
Eve’s name has made a Christmas list, but it’s not for being naughty or nice. It’s for putting a serial killer behind bars. Now the escaped madman has her in his sights. With her husband, Roarke, at her side, Eve must stop the man from exacting his bloody vengeance–or die trying…

4 Stars

Well, that was quick. A pretty good little story (novella length) set in the not too distant future. This is the first ‘In Death’ story I’ve read. I like the characters of Eve Dallas and Roarke, the rest were kind of meh. Eve seems very strong willed and driven, so it’s probably a good thing that her husband is equally as strong willed and driven otherwise that relationship would get annoying fast. She seems to like to push her weight around a some. A little bit of sex, which didn’t really need to be there, but it at least didn’t take away from the story even if it didn’t enhance it. It seemed quite similar to J.A. Jance, but the characters weren’t quite as annoying, didn’t make obviously bad decisions.

The technology wasn’t all that futuristic, but enough that I don’t see us being there by the time 2058 rolls around. All the working from home did seem a little odd. I’ve known officers, usually plain clothes officer, to work from home, but not to such an extent.

The eBook was formatted well with no obvious errors.
