In my pursuit to re-read each of the books in the In Death series I stumbled across this gem. I am truly enjoying rediscovering why I read this series to begin with. This is a suspenseful novel that at times makes you think that Eve is creating links out of the most tenuous of connections but in the end the killer surprises you and you see where she was going all the time. I love novels that have twists and turns. I have to admit some of the scenes were heartrending thought that aspect only makes the conclusion all the more satisfying. I really enjoy these fast paced, elaborate novels and cannot wait to read more.
This is a good, fast paced book that drags you not only into the mind of a cop determined to stop a killer but into the mind of the killer as well. This dynamic novel takes you along on a journey through obsession, killing, and some of the history of the In Death Series. An obsessed fan of Eve’s starts killing those that have wronged Eve in some way but things take a quick turn south. Do not start the series with this book, but if you are a fan of the series this is certainly worth a read.
I had forgotten how distraught Eve becomes when confronted with Mavis’s pregnancy and upcoming delivery. This is a laugh out loud addition to the In Death series without taking any of the seriousness away from the murder. As always I greatly enjoyed this addition to the series, and due to the enjoyment I received hope to continue to re-read these books.
Over the past two weeks I have managed to finish re-reading Ceremony in Death and Festive in Death. It is lovely to remember where the characters I have remained adoring over the years have come from. I plan on re-reading some of the books that further explain Eve’s trauma over the years. I remembered Ceremony quite well, young Jamie Linstrom is a favorite, but much of Festive almost seemed new to me. I hope to continue such lovely explorations.
