Review: Glory in Death by J.D. Robb

Glory in DeathGlory in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #2)
Read: April 29 – May 1, 2013
Personal read.

Goodreads Book Blurb: It is 2058, New York City. In a world where technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there’s only one place to hide a crime of passion-in the heart.

Even in the mid-twenty-first century, during a time when genetic testing usually weeds out any violent hereditary traits before they can take over, murder still happens. The first victim is found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second is murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects.

My Opinion: This second installment in the crime procedural/romance is even better than the first. Robb/Roberts has gotten her feet under her, and she is running.

I found the characters were much more accessible this time around when I dipped into the world of Eve Dallas. They are still developing, which is fantastic, but they were also so much more present. And of course, this book introduces one of my favorite characters.

I didn’t see who the killer was right away, but I did get it before the reveal, which I liked.

Once again, the sex scenes in Glory in Death are overdone, but I kind of expected that. It doesn’t really add much to the story to know exactly how the characters are boinking each other, but I don’t feel like it took anything away, either.

The futuristic setting is almost an afterthought in this book, but since it just seems to be getting better, I am eager to see how Robb/Roberts tackles it in upcoming books.

Bottom Line: Another great romp through crime and sex. What more could you ask for?
