Review: Shadows in Death - J.D. Robb

As it often did since he'd married a cop, murder interrupted more pleasant activities. The again, Roarke supposed, the woman lying in a pool of her own blood a few steps inside the arch in Washington Square Park had a heftier complaint.

When a night out at the theatre is interrupted by the murder of a young woman in Washington Square Park, it seems like an ordinary case for Detective Eve Dallas and her team. But when her husband Roarke spots a shadow from his past in the crowd, Eve realises that this case is far from business as usual.

Eve has two complex cases on her hands - the shocking murder of this wealthy young mother and tracking down the shadow before he can strike again, this time much closer to home. Eve is well used to being the hunter, but how will she cope when the tables are turned? As Eve and the team follow leads to Roarke's hometown in Ireland, the race is on to stop the shadow making his next move...

When you're this many books into a series it can be really hard to think of new things to say in a review but the fact that I'm still mad about this series when it's over 50 books in (and am close to finishing my third reread of all of the books and novellas!) should tell you all you need to know. These books are like crack and I especially love the audio versions narrated by Susan Ericksen who does a fantastic job of bringing all the characters to life. J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts really is the queen of this genre, nobody does it better.

Shadows in Death sees Eve taking on a formidable enemy and one who is targeting the person she cares about most in this world. I always love getting to see more of Roarke's past but it's not often we see him quite so unsettled and it was an interesting change to their dynamics to see Eve comforting him for a change.

The killer in this book may just be one of their most dangerous opponents yet but when you come gunning for one of the NYPD's top Lieutenants and her husband you'd better believe that the NYPD are going to turn out in force to stop you.

This story moves at a fast pace all the way through and it was lovely to see so many people step up and come to bat for Eve and Roarke.
