When a cop killer cuts loose in a club called Purgatory, Detective Eve Dallas descends into an underground criminal hell.
Book Review of Judgement In Death.Judgement in Death is memorable because it is one of those rare cases where both the readers and Eve are sympathetic to the killer. It is a kind of vindication of Eve’s dedication not just to her badge but to the rule of law because she never hesitates in pursuing justice. Yet, Eve is not without mercy. She does make a concession to the murderer’s feelings at the end.
Other than that, Judgement in Death expands on her relationship with another recurring character, Don Webster. Eve’s relationship with Webster is often difficult as she seems to despise what he does even if she respects the person. Their arguments often strike me as funny since Eve would be as quick to condemn a corrupt police officer but condemns Webster’s job.
This is definitely one of reasons I continue to read the series.
