Interlude in Death (In Death, Book 12.5) by JD Robb


Interlude In Death was originally published in the "Out of this World" anthology, and thus it takes place off of earth. Eve and Roarke are on Olympus, though this is work travel for Eve instead of Roarke. It's a police convention and Eve is going to have to give a lecture. It's a relatively short story, but it packs quite a punch.

Once again, Roarke's past comes up during the events of the investigation, and we learn something that seems a bit far fetched, but I've a feeling the author will close that particular loop in a later book. I look forward to it.

Another little twist for this book - it wasn't Eve's investigation. The chief of police on Olympus gets a paycheck from Roarke, which put him in charge this time. It threw off their balance a bit, but they dealt with it and plugged right along.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was a very good one.
  • Pacing was well done.
  • Prose and dialogue were excellent.
  • Character development was consistent with previous books.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
  • Book Rating: Interlude in Death: 10 of 10
