From Amazon :
Streetwise cop Eve Dallas and her trusty sidekick Peabody face a methodical killer in this latest addition to the In Death series by J.D. Robb, better known as the bestselling author Nora Roberts.

In the late 21st century, on the streets of New York City, a street sleeper is found murdered, his diseased heart removed with surgical precision. His death would typically drop to the bottom of a list of senseless and inexplicable killings, but Lieutenant Dallas, who "would stand for the dead and the living," is not about to let that happen. When her research uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she's facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup.

To complicate matters further, Dallas faces an equally troubling threat to her career when she's linked to the death of a fellow cop. Now she must fight to restore her good name as well as track down the killer.

In Conspiracy in Death, Roberts creates a futuristic world of evil that Eve Dallas negotiates through tough talk and brute force. While Robb crafts the crimes with great care, she assumes a familiarity with the characters that new readers will lack. But fans of the In Death series and newcomers alike will enjoy the thrill of the chase as Eve Dallas sets out to get her man. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

Book Review of Conspiracy In Death.

Conspiracy in Death emphasizes how important are Eve’s symbols to her. This is one of the few times we see Eve really break and it was heart wrenching the first time I read it. This time round though, it was more intriguing because I couldn’t help wondering why she would break. No doubt her symbols are important but surely she realizes as a police officer the necessity of it. After all, she’s done the same to fellow officers in the name of duty. An interesting conundrum. The other intriguing part of this is how she deals with what happened and the steps she takes to keep in the loop. Eve seemed to constantly make things harder on herself by not listening to sound advice from friends and colleagues. Also, now that her job is at risk, she’s certainly more amenable to bending her rules.

The other reason I picked this up was because here’s another book where Eve’s clique of trusted aides and friends expand. It’s always fun to read again how and why each connected.

My conclusions :

  • Would I re-read the book ? Yes, but not soon.
  • Would I want to read the next book in the series ? Yes, although not in order.
  • Would I want to own my personal copy if I didn’t already own it ? Yes.
  • Who would I recommend this too? Romantic suspense readers.
  • For those looking to read the book, would I recommend buying or borrowing the book? Buy it.
