Abandoned in Death

We rated this book:


A murder committed in the future with ties to the past. A serial killer is roaming the streets of New York on the hunt for the “perfect” replacement for a lost loved one. A young woman finds herself one minute in the throes of lust and the next in the cold and dark room of a man who does not seem to be “all there.” She has unknowingly become the third victim, but will she the last? Once the first murder victim is found on a park bench in a children’s playground, there are clues left but not quite enough. Without a break, nothing short of a miracle can solve this case. Leave it to Eve Dallas, though, to prove everyone wrong in the In Death series by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts).

Abandoned in Death did more than tug at my heartstrings, it yanked them in all directions. The story alone was excellent, but to prevent many questions, it is advisable to read the series in order. I was not aware and struggled with questions throughout the story. Even with continuous characters for fifty-plus books now, Abandoned in Death showed its own character development with a solid and surprising end. Fans of the author or genre will enjoy this new addition to the series.
