My first J.D. Robb novel. Was not impressed. Don't like books with excessive profanity ( )

I didn't realize this was part of the "In Death" series. It is written very tiny on the paperback cover and I now see it. But most of the other titles in the series have "In Death" in the title where this one does not--so it kind of reminds me of the Stephanie Plum "Between the Numbers" books by Janet Evanovich.

Also, this one mostly takes place in Dallas, TX rather than New York so that is different also. There are a few of the characters from the "In Death" books but most have relatively minor roles throughout the book.

The title plays on the two cities as well as Eve's last name. Eve was found in Dallas (hence her surname) and this trip back, ends up confronting some of her personal demons--as well as some professional ones. Macqueen was her first bust as a NY cop--part luck. Now he's escaped from prison and is looking for revenge.

I do think Roarke and Dallas love each other in their own way. It's not the mushy romantic love of most fiction, but it works for them. ( )

Listened to audio narrated well by Susan Ericksen. Eve must track down an escaped rapist and murderer that she collared twelve years prior. We get to see Dallas as a she saw herself as a Rookie and those that helped shaped her to be the detective she is today. The suspect lures Eve back to Dallas, Texas and Dallas must confront not only her memories but someone from her past. This story isn't just about the crimes and horror inflicted on the victims but on different paths to recovery.
This is one of the more graphically violent stories in the series and those with sensitivities, to child abuse, and rape may find this story difficult.

J.D. Robb's In Death series is always formulaic and this one doesn't deviate from the formula and yet it's still a good read.

Eve Dallas' past comes back to bite her in some very painful ways in this book, but this is Dallas, and ant it's always a mistake to bite her.

The first blast from her past is a serial killer she arrested twelve years ago, when she was still a uniformed patrol officer. She stumbled onto the man while looking for possible witnesses in another case, realized there was something hinky, and wound up bagging the killer and rescuing the girls who were his current crop of victims. The killer was locked up, and his victims returned to their families.

Twelve years later, he has escaped from prison, victimized a young couple, and sent Dallas a message.

That message sends her to Dallas, TX, where her personal painful history begins, And as she tracks down the killer, and his new victims, one piece of the puzzle is a figure out of that distant, buried, past. With Roarke by her side, with Peabody back in New York working that end of the case, and working together with the Dallas homicide cops who operate in a very different cop culture, Eve has to face the most painful memories of her childhood and relive the nightmare again.

This is another excellent "In Death" novel, with Dallas and Roarke exploring and deepening their relationship even while Dallas is forced to reach outside her familiar tools and tactics to find the killer and rescue his latest victims, and Peabody operates on her own without Dallas looking over her shoulder for the first time. It's fast-paced, intense, and takes all the characters forward in their development.

Recommended.

I bought this book. ( )
