Kindred in Death by J.D. Robb is the 29th book in the “In Death” suspense series. Publisher: Putnam, November 2009

In 2060, Lieutenant Eve Dallas searches the nooks of New York City for a dastardly and despicable criminal, in the newest novel by #1 New York Times-bestselling author J.D. Robb.

When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter, who stayed behind.

Not even their worst nightmares could prepare them for the crime scene that awaits them instead. Deena has been brutally murdered in her bedroom, and her body shows signs of trauma that horrify even the toughest of cops, including our own Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who is specifically requested by the captain to investigate.

When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do they know that someone has gone to great lengths to tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities.

Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to serve justice.

How does J.D. Robb continue to create excellent stories? I could not put this book down. A violent crime occurs. Eve is requested for this case. Eve gathers her team around her and piece by piece they put it together to identify the killer, pursue and then capture. This is a bit more grittier than her other books, but again, J.D. Robb makes it work. There are still bits of humor in this story as Charles and Louise prepare for their wedding. Awesome and great read. My rating: 5 stars
