Judgement in Death (In Death, Book 11) by JD Robb


Judgment in Death once again lets us peek into Roarke's past. If the events of this book had happened earlier in the relationship I'm not sure the couple would have survived intact. But, Eve and Roarke's marriage is strong enough now that, while it was a bit rocky, they managed to deal with everything thrown at them.

The mystery this time puts Eve into a tight spot, as she finds herself investigating cops. She doesn't back away from it, she stands for the dead and that means she does what needs to be done to bring the killer down... but she still has some troubles navigating her investigation this time.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was a good one. Troubling, twisted, and sad... but good.
  • Pacing was fine.
  • Prose and dialogue were, as always, several levels above great.
  • Character development developed a whole lot in this book.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
