"When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim's injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart--and initials inside reading E and D . . . Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don't ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo's got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else's. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone--an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again. As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they've landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve" --… (lisätietoja)

Eve must hunt down a couple on a murder spree, murdering and torturing good people for sexual kicks. A futuristic Bonnie and Clyde couple.

This was an intense read, the momentum kept building as Eve and her crew, as well as a little help from southern cop race to find the couple before they kill their latest kidnapped victim.

Robb does an excellent job giving us the daily ins and outs of Eve's life on the job and at home as well as the intensity of investigating and solving a murder before it's too late. I love Rourke and Eve and some of the flashbacks in this book made me want to reread the first book and see them fall in love again. Great read, highly recommend.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

It's been a year since I have picked up an In Death book so I was interested in where the characters have gone. This felt like slipping on a pair of comfortable shoes. Everything was pretty much the same except for the criminals. The description of what this futuristic Romeo and Juliet (or Bonnie and Clyde) get up to is not for the faint of heart though. Towards the end I was skimming anytime the book jumped back to Ella-loo and her boyfriend Darryl.

After finding a man who was reported missing, it's pretty obvious that all signs point to murder. But after seeing a tattoo with initials and a heart around it, Dallas suspects something even uglier than murder.

The book introduces a new character who comes along and brings his own insight into other murders that can maybe be linked back to Ella-loo and Darryl.

We have a DeWinter interaction (I am really tired of Eve not liking her for no reason) and we have DeWinter, Morris, and Mira joining together to tie crimes together that Eve may think are connected.

I have to say though that the ending does not quite stick. It feels like a letdown after everything you read to get to the end. And the asides about Bella's first birthday party were just not necessary. And I realized that after Born in Death (In Death #23) that means that there have been 18 books between that point and now and that means there must have been a murder every other week at this point that Dallas and Peabody were investigating. I really wish Robb would consider lengthening the timeline in the series. Things can jump ahead a month or two. Or we can actually have them taking place around other dates besides Valentine's Day, Christmas, or New Year's Eve.

Roarke felt largely absent in this one. At this point, there is really no need for Roarke to be "assisting" Eve on her cases. She has Feeney, McNabb, and others. I have yet to see something that says yes only Roarke could have found that. And I still want to know how no one has brought a civil lawsuit against the guy, I don't care if he's an expert civilian consultant or not.

There is the usual marriage angst between Roarke and Eve that really did not need to be included since it got done away with so quickly. Frankly if I was Eve I would have mumbled Magdalena and went about my business. ( )

I enjoy these books, not for the murders but how the characters grow and change. Eve is working on a case where the killers have been traveling across the country killing along the way to live in NYC. The reader knows who the killers are and their motivation. Her squad and the specialists working for the police are in a race to find the killers before they kill the next victim they are currently holding and torturing. What I liked about this one was the small time cop that was also working the cases from his end of the trail and wasn’t giving up on the victims either.
Good triumphs over evil in the end and nice things happen to minor characters in the story as well. I can’t wait for the next one.
