Book Review: Delusion in Death

If you missed it I'm a big J.D. Robb fan, and so it's no surprise that I let out a little squee when I got to work on Friday and spotted that we had her newest title, Delusion in Death. This one has mass murder through unknown means, and the usual crazy baddie. What I enjoyed is the progress that Eve is making in working through what happened in New York to Dallas - the only title in the series to not follow the "... in Death" naming convention. Yes, some of what happens does feel a little formulaic, but this is a thriller/murder mystery/cop series so there will be some elements that are the same in all of them. And honestly the big draw of a series is the learning new things about the characters, and seeing what is happening with them. Don't characters feel like friends to you too?

I digress, the action in this one is a bit disappointing - Eve kicking ass is always fun, but the interview room scenes are as good as ever. The Somerset and  Eve one liners are still there adding depth to both of them. Roarke, Peabody and Dr Mira are their usual self, but we do read/see more of some of the smaller newer characters added along the way. All in all, if you're a fan this won't disappoint. If you're new to the series, don't read this one until you've at least read New York to Dallas.
