Indulgence in Death by J. D. Robb is the 31st book in the “In Death” suspense series. Publisher: Putnam, February 2010
When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation she is taking with her husband, Roarke, Eve realizes that no place is safe—not an Irish wood or the streets of the manic city she calls home. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to the cop shop in New York City.
A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead—shot through the neck with a crossbow. The car was booked by an executive at a venerable security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a stunning, high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island, a bayonet stuck in her heart. And again, the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked.
With a method established, but no motive to be found, Eve begins to fear that she has come across that most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer, but one with a taste for the finer things in life—and death. Eve does not know where or when the next kill will be, or that her investigation will take her to the rarefied circle that Roarke travels in—and into the perverted heart of madness.
Someone is ruining Eve’s return from vacation with murderous intent. Using bizarre weapons of choice in their killings and pointing evidence towards innocent people, Eve and her team slice and dice the clues to bring her suspects down a size. I loved this book. I love watching Eve work her case and Roarke assist and lends Eve the emotional support that will help her close her case. As usual the gang is there, Peabody with her comical self as she bring humanity at its best to Eve; McNab with he quest for good food and Feeney, the father figure she respects and trust. I also like how she takes the time now to know when her friends need a diversion, even if she dislike entertaining, she’ll do it for them. This is another great read in this awesome series. My rating: 5 stars
