Echoes in Death (Large Print / Hardcover)
Eve and Roarke are on their way home from a fancy shindig when a naked, bloody woman steps in front of their car. With their quick thinking and even quicker driving they manage to save her – but discover her husband dead in their home - plunging the NYPD detective, Roarke and her team into a brutal new case.
This book is a very fast and absorbing read. The book is very focused on the crime Eve is investigating and on the detective herself. While I know she is the story’s protagonist there is usually more of the side charecters present in the narrative than there was in this installment. However because this book was so laser-focused on catching the killer – you don’t really miss them until you get to the end of the book – and wonder where the heck they were! Robb does mention them, moving their lives forward with news bandied about by other characters, so you are not totally out of the loop.
But as I said you don’t really miss them – the case, book and Eve are so focused and fast paced (there isn’t another word for it) you really don’t notice until the end that they weren’t there. I would recommend this book to any of the In Death fans – Robb (or whoever is writing them now) does a good job in hitting all the right notes in a way which doesn’t make the book feel stale. Which, after 44 installments, is a job of work!— Amber
