Salvation in Death (In Death, Book 27) by JD Robb


Salvation in Death is one of the most complicated and twisted murder mysteries I believe I've ever read. Through the 26 novels and 30 plus stories (including shorts) of this series I've kept it at a 9 of 10, but Salvation in Death propels the series to a 10 of 10.

Here's the blurb:

In the year 2060, sophisticated investigative tools can help catch a killer. But there are some questions even the most advanced technologies cannot answer. The priest at a Catholic funeral mass brings the chalice to his lips—and falls over dead.

I loved the humor thrown in, and I adore watching Eve take down crooks on the street. 

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was exceptionally well thought out.
  • Pacing was fine.
  • Prose and dialogue were stellar, as always.
  • Character development was touched on a bit, with some spiritual and religious debate between Eve and Roarke.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
Salvation in Death combines plot, humor, debate, friendship, healthy relationship, and sizzling sex to easily get a 10 of 10.
    • Book Rating: Salvation in Death: 10 of 10
    • Series Rating: 10 of 10
