J.D. Robb- New York to Dallas


When a monster named Isaac McQueen-taken down by Eve back in her uniform days-escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.
Review:
I have not picked up a book since December and quite frankly I wish I would have picked a different one. Anyone that knows me knows I am a huge In Death fan and when I found out this book was out I had to read it. Seeing so many 5 star reviews on Amazon really made me anxious to read it. I am now left wondering if we read the same book.
I was very disappointed in this book. It was the same story, just told a different way with a monster thrown in for good measure. Robb, aka Roberts, always makes a big deal out of not making Eve a victim but re-hashes her past every chance she gets. We all know what happened in Dallas; for god sakes let her move on already. Why does she have to re-live it? Just to overcome it once again? Quit making Eve a victim and let her rise above this once and for all.
I miss the in death of before. The good plots, the heart, the relationships. The books seemed rushed and just thrown together. I am not sure if I will read the next one. They just aren’t what they used to be. I guess if you are an in death fan you should read it. If you have never read the books before skip this one and go for an older one. Like number one.

Excellent, truly informative review for your readers, Bobbie! I'm new to your blog, and following you, now.
I like that you told it like it is on this. Sometimes an author can try to rest on his/her laurels and pass a book on as a "new" story. Good for you for the warning!
Please come by when you get a chance to see my reviews. I would appreciate any comments you could give that would help me!
