REVIEW: Vengeance in Death – An In Death series novel # 6 by J.D. Robb

A religious nutjob sociopathic serial killer targets Even and Roarke (Shocker!).  Extremely bloody mutilated bodies are found and Summerset is tied to more than one murder.

Hating the snobbish, uptight asswad, Eve still finds herself using every resource to prove that he should not be her prime suspect.  If only the dude would follow her advice and stay close to home.

Avenging the rape, mutilation, beating and death of Summerset daughter, Roarke is forced to make a list of those who provided him information on her torturers.  One by one, the killer is making his way through the list and brutalized them in the most delicious ways.

He’d been stripped naked, his hand and both his feet amputated.  The one eye he left stared in blind horror at the mirrored reflection of his own mutilated form.  He’d been disemboweled.

Peabody and Eve are hilarious.  They don’t come close to Stephanie and Lula, but they’re funny!

“Peabody’s a pussycat.  Aren’t you, Peabody?”

“Tame as a tabby, Lieutenant.”

With that said, this book left me wanting.

I was not entirely entertained.  I need something juicy to get my pulse pumping.  Maybe I picked up the wrong book at the wrong time.  *glances at bookshelves*

Ok…

I recommend this book to mature adults only.  There is very little sexual content and it is non-descriptive.  The violence and murder scenes are fantastic!  Mature eyes only!

~Happy reading!

Book of the day … Vengeance in Death – An In Death series novel # 6 by J.D. Robb

I so need a break from the paranormal books I have been reading.  They are sucking what little brain cells I have into oblivion while giggling along the way.  *blink*

I could not decide between In Death or Stephanie Plum.  I’m not in a ha ha funny mood at the moment, so bloody gore mystery will suffice!

My momma is visiting me this week!  My birthday is the 18th, and school begins the 17th.  That’s so unfair.  So she has surprised me with a visit; too cool!  Suffice it so say, I will not finish reading this book this week 🙂  I doubt you will receive any posts at all, unless something is drumming against my mind, it will all have to wait until she leaves 🙂  Until then!

On to better and cooler things!  The In Death series by J.D. Robb.  I have yet to read this series in its entirety.  Vengeance in Death will be a first read for me, as well as those that follow.

Summary of Vengeance in Death:

He is an expert with the latest technology…a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit–always solved moments too late to save his victims’ lives. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past–a secret shared by none other than Eve’s new husband, Roarke.

 

REVIEW: Ceremony in Death – An In Death series novel # 5 by J.D. Robb

As much as I appreciate a good paranormal book, this book left me suffering.

Surrounded by witches, good and evil, Eve betrays a dear friend and puts the job first.

This book really hits home with Eve.  A suspect is the son of a serious psycho serial killer and rapist who worshipped satan.  The father raped and beat his own son.  Blinded by her emotions, Eve wishes and hopes that the man is innocent, even if all of the evidence points his way.

Ritual killings, orgies and the mysterious unknown witchcraft, Eve is the primary on this case and leads her aide and others with skeptical sarcasm.

He watched her work before, studied and admired the efficient, concentrated field she created around the dead.  Roarke wondered if she fully understood why she did it, or how she could, while examining a lifeless, violently dispatched body with such clear-cut objectivity, see through the pity that haunted her eyes.

He’d never asked her.  He doubted he ever would.

I honestly did not care much for this book.  It was a bit boring to me.

I recommend this book to mature adults.  Strong sexual content.  Strong and intriguing violence.  Sex and dismemberment.  Although others may find this book extremely entertaining, I am recommending this book only to those who are reading the In Death series.  I mean .. why bother?

Line of the book:

“…my narcissism is balanced by a generous heart.”

~Happy reading!
