Review: Faithless in Death - J.D. Robb

It's a beautiful Spring day in NYC when Lt. Eve Dallas gets an early morning murder call. A talented young sculptor hasn't had such a perfect day in May. Killed by her own hammer, at first it looks like an argument with a jealous partner but it soon becomes clear that there is much more to this case than a lovers' quarrel turned fatal.

Eve finds herself drawn into the dark and dangerous world of a secret order. A world in which white supremacy, misogyny and religious fanaticism are everyday activities. Eve has dealt with some tough cases before but is it too much even for her to take on a wealthy, influential organisation with friends in very high places.....?

Faithless in Death was another fantastic instalment in the series, I will never get tired of reading about these characters but a big draw of the books is how well the murder mystery side is written too. J.D. Robb manages to make every single case different from the last and this was the first time Eve is investigating a so-called religious cult that is really just one man using religion to justify his mysogynistic, racist & homophobic views and to force others to adhere to his rules.

The deeper Eve digs into this cult the more of their abhorrent practises she uncovers but the biggest issue will be trying to make the people in charge pay for their crimes before anyone else gets hurt. Eve has really come into her own as a capable leader and she shows here just how well she can pull together a huge operation with involvement of multiple different agencies. I love watching Eve work but I also really enjoy the personal interactions between all the team members, Peabody and McNab are always on hand to add a bit of humour alongside the other detectives in the bullpen and of course Feeny and Mira have that calming parental influence over everyone too. The biggest draw is always the relationship between Eve and Roarke though, total couple goals right there.
