Review: Interlude in Death - J.D. Robb

An exclusive J.D. Robb short story.

If anyone is going to make an enemy of a respected police commander, it's Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When Commander Skinner offers her a promotion if she'll give up her husband Roarke to his custody, Eve reacts badly. Roarke's Irish roots contain a murky past, but now he's a changed man - so why is the Commander so intent on bringing him to justice?

With Eve and Commander Skinner at one of Roarke's holiday resorts to give a talk to a police convention, Skinner's thwarted vengeance will soon bring death to their luxury surroundings...

Set between Betrayal in Death and Seduction in Death.

Visit J.D. Robb's website for more information.

Interlude In Death is available either as an individual ebook, or, as a bind up in print or ebook, that also includes the novella Midnight in Death. I read it as part of the bind up but I've reviewed both stories separately as I read them months apart so I could read the whole In Death series in order.

In Interlude in Death we see Eve and Roarke travel off planet so that Eve can host a seminar at a police conference. It would already be her idea of hell just for the journey but add in public speaking and having to socialise and Eve really isn't happy about the whole deal. It's made even worse when a well respected Commander offers her a promotion, all she would have to do is help him convict her husband. Commander Skinner has seriously underestimated Eve though, nothing would convince her to betray Roarke and the minute it looks like someone is setting him up to take the fall for a murder Eve goes into full on Lieutenant mode. Nothing will stop her from solving this case, even if she does have to work against one of her own to do it.

Even with the shorter novellas in this series J.D. Robb manages to write stories that have me hooked from beginning to end. Eve and Roarke are such a fantastic team and there are some wonderfully heartfelt moments between them in this story where they are both forced to face some uncomfortable facts about their fathers. It was great that Feeney, Peabody and Mira were also attending the conference and that they all instantly had Eve and Roarke's back too. We all know Roarke has a chequered past but nobody believes he would risk Eve's career by committing cold blooded murder, not unless her life was in danger anyway! Another great story in this series that left me wanting more.
