Treachery in Death (In Death, Book 32) by JD Robb


Treachery in Death is a slam dunk of a novel. It's got everything - excellent plot, intrigue, danger, a love story, another love story that shows what comes after the happily ever after, twists and turns, and some hard looks at friendship, command, and responsibility.

I mentioned a few books back that we hadn't see Eve being a Lieutenant much in the earlier books. We saw the detective aspects of her job, but we didn't really see her leading the bullpen, doing the administrative stuff. That has been brought in a bit more here and there in the past couple of books, and Treachery in Death brings it front and center. At some point Roarke is going to have to stop calling her Lieutenant and start calling her Captain, I think. I'll miss that, but I also think the author is setting the stage for that to happen.

Here's the blurb:

Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law-including the ones sworn to uphold it.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was beautifully woven together.
  • Pacing was fine.
  • Prose and dialogue were great - with the exception of my once again having to figure out whether Eve or Roarke was speaking.
  • Character development was once again pushed and tweaked, and even shoved a bit here and there.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
I wish we'd had more of an epilogue, some follow up on some of the events of the book. But Treachery in Death still easily gets a 10 of 10.
