Books #23-24

23. Treachery in Death by J.D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts), 375 pages, Mystery, 2011 (In Death, Book 32).

Fresh off her first stint as primary on a case, Peabody goes from elated to terrified when she overhears dirty cops discussing their operation and the murder of someone who crossed them. Dallas starts the investigation into a squad in illegals (narcotics) led by the daughter of a retired police legend, a paragon of honor and duty. It’s intense, with the plans within plans, and more than a few physical encounters. I read this in a day; the In Death series has become a comfort series, easy to read with a family of characters that fascinate me.

24. New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb (a.k.a. Nora Roberts), 402 pages, Mystery, 2011 (In Death, Book 33).

As Detective Peabody and Lieutenant Dallas are preparing for an awards ceremony, in recognition of their efforts in the prior book, Eve receives a message from one of her first arrests. The pedophile she stumbled upon as a rookie, a man who would kidnap, torture, and kill young girls, has escaped from prison. And while he was in New York to announce himself, Eve is going to have to go to Dallas, the city she was found in as a child, the city she remembers in her nightmares, in order to save some other girl from those nightmares. Intense read, and a great glimpse into the back story of Eve Dallas and what brought her to the attention of Feeney, who trained her as a murder cop.
