Overview

In the #1 New York Times bestselling series by J. D. Robb comes Connections in Death, a gritty and gripping new novel that follows Eve Dallas as she fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York.

 

 Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads and, with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.

Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances…

J.D. Robb has taken a new idea and fleshed it out. While her last two have been good but more of a rehashing of old plots. This one is fresh and new. From a simple murder masquerading as a OD comes a complex plot leading to a total takedown. We also see the return of old favorite charactors

Huge fan but this book didn't have the same voice. While I loved the plot, it almost felt like it was ghost written or co-written. The opening & old anicillary characters felt disconnected from the book (with the exception of Crack). Even Roake felt off (no Irish phrases whilst he & Eve were initimate). A bit disppointed in this offering. It lost a star for the ghost written feeling but gained a star for the plot.

I enjoy all of her books. This one was a little different as it was more of a true crime tale instead of a crazy serial killer or psychotic futuristic conspiracy. A very good read.

It took me a while to get into because the thought process seemed to stay in Roarkes point of view for good portions of the book. Then the point of view switched to Summerset, Peabody, and other characters. It only switched to Eve’s point of view and felt like an In Death book the last few chapters. It wasn’t a bad switch just one that took some adjusting to. It was nice to see character growth amongst all the characters and the deepening of the relationship to each other throughout the book. But at points I felt if I had to read the word connect or connection again I was going to start a drinking game in those words honor. Overall the book was good once you realized it was building to whatever is next for the characters. The first part of the book as with the last few have felt like a different authors voice with the end being Nora’s. With Eve’s sadness at the end I wonder if we are heading for then of the series or a change in the job or a child on the horizon.

Not up to Robb’s usual works. No suspense, no psychological drama.

A solid book after a couple others that seemed a little forced.

They just get better and better. The only bad thing is the long wait until the next book.

Bad thing about JD Robb's books are you can't put them down, read them too fast, and have a long wait for the next one.

I have read all the books in this series, several times. The last three have been disappointing to say the least. This latest one was one sex scene after another. I am no prude, but when it interferes with the story and seems like it is a formula, this page's sex scene, then the next page's sex scene it is beneath the skill of the author. There comes a time when the author is so well known, his/her books are bought in anticipation of the story to come. At this time, when the series starts to fail it is time for the author and the publisher to move on. I always pre-order the next in the series but not so the next.

I always enjoy the Eve Dallas books. Yes, it’s a little implausible that a detective can be that noble all the time, but go with it. The stories have humor, heart, and a fast pace. Plus, the good guys prevail by being smart and capable, not through luck or magic.
