"Enthralling mystery from 2059 New York Police Department"
In 2059 Earth, technology has made life better and easier
for most people, but crime remains a problem as felons
adapt the latest gizmos for their use. New York Police
Department Lieutenant Eve Dallas overcame an abusive
childhood to become a successful law enforcement official
respected by her peers and feared by criminals. Her
spouse, the ultra-powerful Roarke, loves her dearly and
seems to always help her on her most dangerous cases.
All seems quiet until an unknown assailant bludgeons an
undercover police officer in one of Roarke's entertainment
clubs. Subsequently, someone they must have known guns
down several other police officers. Eve and Roarke realize
they must stop the cop killer before he murders again.
However, neither one of the lovers yet know that an enemy
as powerful as Roarke is orchestrating a more dangerous
scenario for the two of them.
J.D. Robb writes a fast-paced, enthralling mystery with
some romance between the two lead characters. The story
line is spiced up by two cases that intersect with clues
that lead to the final climax. JUDGMENT IN DEATH is
the finest work in a wonderful futuristic series that will
appeal to many different genre fans.
