Glory in Death (In Death, Book 2) by JD Robb


Glory in Death continues a few months after the events of the first book in this series, Naked in Death.

I enjoyed the second book a little more than the first book, in part because my brain was working pretty much the same as Eve's brain this time as she followed the trail to solve the mystery.

I also enjoyed the progression of her personal relationships, as well as the symbolism that turned up a few times in what the people she was interrogating had to say versus what she was going through personally at the time.

Here's the blurb:

Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between two violent crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women whose intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects—including her own lover, Roarke. 

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was perfect, for a variety of reasons.
  • Pacing was very well done.
  • Prose and dialogue were fine.
  • Character development continues to build and grow and I'm enjoying it.
  • World-building was consistent with that of the first book.
Glory in Death will a a 9 of 10 for me, and I'm going to hold off on a series rating at this point. I will be reading the third book in this series, Immortal in Death.
