Immortal in Death (In Death, Book 3) by JD Robb


Immortal in Death is my favorite book in the series so far.

Here's the blurb:

She was one of the most sought-after women in the world—and then she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas put her professional life on the line to take the case when suspicion fell on her best friend, the other woman in a fatal love triangle. Beneath the facade of glamour, Eve finds the high fashion world’s underbelly of drugs and dangerous alliances.

When I knew who was going to die first long before she actually died, I had a few fears that it might be too predictable. But it wasn't predictable. Not by a long shot. I knew who the killer was before Eve did, but only about thirty pages before she did, and even then I wasn't positive.

I loved the character growth this time around.  Change and growth - if characters aren't learning and growing and changing then a series doesn't work for me, and this one is working for me.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was nice, in a twisted sort of way. The addition of the fashion world was a plus, especially since Eve doesn't really get the whole fashion thing.
  • Pacing was fine.
  • Prose and dialogue were very well done.
  • As already said, Character development was pushed forward and nicely done.
  • World-building continues to be interesting and detailed.
I've given the first two books in this series an 8 and 9. I'm giving  Immortal in Death a 10 of 10, and I'll give it a series rating of a 9 of 10 for now.
