Review: Creation in Death - J.D. Robb

When the body of a young brunette is found in East River Park, artfully positioned and marked by signs of prolonged and painful torture, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier. The city was on edge from a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days, courtesy of a man the media tagged “The Groom”—because he put silver rings on the fingers of his victims.

But this time, it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made his attack personal. The young woman was employed by Eve’s billionaire husband, Roarke, washed in products from a store Roarke owns, and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. Chances are, The Groom is working up to the biggest challenge of his illustrious career—abducting a woman who will test his skills and who promises to give him days and days of pleasure before she dies: Eve.

A serial killer is back in New York city, one who likes to take his victims prisoner and torture them to death. This is a case that really hits home for Eve and Feeny, they both worked the original case nine years ago and the killer is the one who got away who has haunted them ever since. The killer let New York after killing four victims but he continued his work in other cities around the world and nobody has come close to catching him. This time he's made it personal though, he starts by targeting women working for companies owned by Roarke but Eve fits his profile perfectly and it's starting to look like she might be his end game.

I'm running out of ways to express my love for this series so I'm going to keep this review short but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy Creation in Death. One of the things I love most about this series is the relationship between Eve and Roarke so I was delighted that we see more of the two of them working alongside each other in this one. Eve is so determined to capture the killer that she's pulling in all possible resources and Roarke is more than happy to help since he feels to blame that his people are being targeted. We often see Roarke running smaller side jobs for Eve but this time around he's right in the war room with her and all our other favourites and it gives him a new appreciation for everything the cops do when they're working a difficult case.

Love this series, love this book, can't wait to start reading the next one!
