For Lt. Eve Dallas, this Thanksgiving is one fullof laughter and family as Roarke’s Irish family relations come over for the American holiday. But all is not going smoothly in New York City this Thanksgiving. For a twisted and psychopathic killer is on the loose and his victim tally are building. Jerry Reinhold is a sadistic yet one step ahead of Eve and the NYC police department. As Eve races to capture this elusive killer, she hopes that she isn’t too late, for Jerry has another victim in sight and it will take everything Eve and her team has in order to stop Jerry in time.

You know when you get into an In Death book by the talented J.D. Robb you are getting one kick-ass story as well as characters that continue to grow with each book. Now into her thirty-seventh book in this wildly popular series, Ms. Robb delivers a spine tingling story that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. It takes a master storyteller to get into this madman’s brain and Ms. Robb does it with a satisfied glee as she keeps the reader glued to the pages as they race alongside Eve and her crack team made of fellow police offices as well as her civilian consultant/husband, Roarke, trying to solve the crimes even as the bodies start stacking up. I have to admit this is an author I auto buy no matter what. This series is by far so superbly written, I get lost in the book regardless of the time I started reading it. The one thing that makes THANKLESS IN DEATH stand a part a little from the other books in the series is we get to see Eve and Roarke celebrate Thanksgiving together as well as Roarke’s wonderful Irish family, which gives the storyline a lightness to balance out the murder case Eve is trying to solve. Each character grows with each book and in this latest addition into the series that is no exception.

In THANKLESS IN DEATH, you will laugh, cry, sniffle and sigh as you get emotionally invested in the story and find yourself eagerly flipping the pages to see what happens next. Ms. Robb is one talented author and knows how to keep her readers glued to their seats. After finishing this latest addition, I had to sit back and decompress. THANKLESS IN DEATH is a pulse pounding ride from start to finish and one I can’t get enough of. If you are looking for an emotional storyline that weaves a spell around you, then grab THANKLESS IN DEATH and settle in for an afternoon of reading pleasure. I now can’t wait for the next book in the series.
