Ceremony in Death is the fifth installment in J.D. Robb's very popular futuristic mystery-romance series “In Death”. In this one Eve is forced by Commander Whitney to investigate the death of a fellow officer. This officer was observed buying illegals and the drugs were found in his system after his death. Whitney wants this investigation off the record and done without any other officers involved. Making it especially difficult for Eve is that Feeney, Eve's training officer and father figure, has has been personal friends with the victim for many years, and is godfather to his granddaughter. Before too long her investigation leads her to satanic cults, Wiccan religious groups, and more murders. The Wiccan element brings more development to Peabody's character since she knows a little about the Wiccan practices. And, of course, Roarke gets involved in the investigation as well. It seems that everyone Eve questions ends up getting killed and soon Eve herself is the target.

The attraction of this series is the mix of suspense and romance combined with a great murder mystery. There are many surprises and I really enjoy the dialogue, the depth of the characters, and the continuing characters throughout the series. All the characters are interesting, and stories are well written. As for the mystery part, often it's not too hard to guess who did it and why the person did it in the first place. Nevertheless, these books continue to keep a reader intrigued with the twists and turns of the plots and the ever developing relationship between Eve and Roarke. ( )

Homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas, probing the death of a fellow NYPSD police officer, finds herself entrenched in a difficult investigation, especially when someone leaves a dead body outside the fence surrounding her home. With Wiccans and Satanists on Eve’s suspect list, will she find the culprit before evil strikes again?

In this, the fifth book in the “In Death” series, Eve is a bit problematic in that she allows her personal experiences to cloud her judgment; furthermore, at times she is uncharacteristically overbearing and unnecessarily harsh. It’s a side of the lieutenant readers haven’t seen before, and while it adds to the complexity of the character, readers may find it a bit off-putting. The sometimes-grim, intricate plot keeps the suspense building and, as with previous stories, the relationship between Eve and Roarke continues to provide readers with new insights.

Highly recommended. ( )

Things are never easy for Lieutenant Eve Dallas. A fellow police officer has died and the investigation is extremely challenging. One of the issues Eve must contend with is that the circumstances surrounding the death, and that of another person, are rooted in pure evil.

As a matter of fact, when it came to the subject matter at hand, I wasn't so sure that I could finish this book. Eve must contend with an element new to her, Wiccans and Satanists. In the process of her investigation, Eve isn't so sure the practices have merit, enough merit to be responsible for the gruesome murders.

Meanwhile, Eve is at odds with a fellow officer more than once in this story. Add to this the ever-present danger facing Eve at every turn and what you have is another excellent book in this series. As always, Roarke is front and center when it comes to keeping Eve safe, especially when she gets a little too close to danger. All the while, Roake and Eve draw ever closer together.

This series is excellent so far, although I am only five books in. I look forward to reading each and every entry in this ongoing series. It is full of suspense, romance and just a bit of a futuristic edge. ( )
