1 review about Indulgence in Death by J. D. Robb

Everything I look for in an In Death novel...

  • Nov 28, 2010

Guilty indulgence time (pun intended)... J. D. Robb's (Nora Roberts) latest installment, Indulgence in Death, arrived at the library at the perfect time... right before a four day weekend. Not that it ever takes me that long to finish an In Death novel, but I didn't have to feel overly guilty for reading later into the night than I should have.

With Indulgence, we see a bit more of Eve Dallas's "softening", as she journeys back to Ireland with Roarke to connect with his family. While not her particular pace of life, she starts to understand how important family is, even though she's never had one of her own. Of course, when she gets back to New York, she's quickly thrown back into the world of crime and death, this time with a series of murders involving unusual weapons and little to indicate what might be driving the selection of victims. With the help of Roarke, Peabody, and the rest of the crew, she is able to cut through the identity fraud and determine the likely suspects for the killings, while at the same time ratcheting up the pressure on the killers to make a mistake and jump to their ultimate end game... killing Dallas.

This installment had all the elements I enjoy in an In Death novel. While there isn't quite as much interaction with many of the secondary characters, Robb does advance the character growth a bit with Peabody. Peabody has become more of a detective in her own right, and comes up with a number of threads in the case that Dallas hadn't considered and that play out well. The motivation of the killings was also interesting, in that it takes the competition angle so common in men to the ultimate conclusion.

Indulgence In Death was just what I wanted for an escape from technical reading and writing, and Robb delivered. Now I need to go find what her next planned installment is so I can get on the hold list at the library... :)
