Kindred in Death (In Death, Book 29) by JD Robb


Kindred in Death gives us yet another serial killer. With yet more mommy issues. And Eve once again has no time to sleep.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy the book. I did. Not only for the murder plot, but for the team Eve puts together, for the personal stuff here and there, and for once again making Summerset a bit more human.

Here's the blurb:

When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife returned a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind. Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaited them instead.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was kind of same-thing as compared to previous books in this series. The story is still a good one, but at some point one has to wonder how many serial killers are in the future.
  • Pacing was mostly okay.
  • Prose and dialogue were excellent.
  • Character development was nudged a bit here and there.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
I'm giving Kindred in Death a 9 of 10 because of recurring themes, as mentioned in my first paragraph. Can't we have a serial killer without mommy issues?
