Ceremony in Death by J.D. Robb

Ceremony in Death by J.D. Robb

Eve Dallas is back for the 4th or 5th book of the "In Death" series investigating what looks to be religious murders. She delves into the world of wiccans - both of the white and black kind - to determine who is behind these slayings. A new character is introduced, Jaime, who is the son of a police detective that taught Dallas' mentor. The kid has spunk and I hope to see him stick around for the upcoming books.
Robb also tells us something very important this book - Roarke's name is just Roarke!! I'd always wondered what his last (or first?) name was, but turns out he's like Cher, a one name wonder.
I had been getting upset at the endings of these books. Dallas always walks into the murder's home or office, to find out that they were the ones that had actually committed the crime. Of course she goes alone, they try to kill her, etc etc. This one was a little different, so that was nice. But still, if Dallas is so smart, why does she always solve a case by getting the murderer to tell her everything? That doesn't happen in real life. Why can't she just figure things out on her own using evidence?
