Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb

Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb

The stakes are high in this installment of the "In Death" series. Eve Dallas is called in to what looks like an open and shut case of a jealous woman killing her lover. Then Eve gets discs of people claiming to have a political cause and threaten to blow up parts of the city if their demands are not met. Are these two cases to linked? When Dallas' aide's brother comes in to town and starts to build cabinets for the deceased's brother, Dallas doesn't like the coincidence. Then a hotel lobby blows up and Eve must focus on stopping this group.

There seemed to be much more on the line for Eve this time which made the store more gripping. The previous wars that Robb had thought up were interesting to read about. This includes an Urban War and some unimaginable terrorism events. Unfortunately, the story was ruined by horrific dialog between Zeke, Peabody's brother, and the wife B.D Branson, the deceased's brother. This part read out like a low quality romance novel and I almost had to put the book down.

First Line: "On this particular night, a beggar died unnoticed under a bench in Greenpeace Park."
