Possession in Death (In Death, Book 31.5) by JD Robb


Possession in Death is a nice short that once again explores the paranormal. I'm thinking this is becoming a pattern now. I'm fine with that, with there being elements of (as Eve says) woo-woo stuff spaced out here and there in the series, but I do wonder why it now seems to be relegated to the anthology pieces. Unless perhaps it has more to do with the themes of the anthologies? Perhaps.

Here is the blurb:
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has always sought justice for the dead, but now, a victim will seek her own vengeance-through Eve.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was okay. Yet another serial killer in this future New York.
  • Pacing was fine.
  • Prose and dialogue were excellent.
  • Character development wasn't really pushed here, but that's fine .
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
I'm giving  Possession in Death a 9 of 10.
    • Book Rating: Possession in Death: 9 of 10
    • Series Rating: 10 of 10
    As I've warned before, JD Robb's book listing page shows that Indulgence in Death comes after Possession in Death, when it should be the other way around. If you read Possession first it will spoil Indulgence, so make sure  you read this one after you've read Indulgence.
