Review: Dark in Death by J. D. Robb

Lieutenant Eve Dallas returns to take on a case of death imitating art in Dark in Death, New York Times bestselling master of suspense J. D. Robb's 46th In Death novel (available January 30, 2018).

I’m a reader first and foremost. I love books; I’ve loved books since I was a toddler and would bring my grandpa a stack of my “favorites” to read every night before bed. According to my mother, my grandpa would try and skip pages or hide a couple books under the couch cushion, but I would always catch him and demand (I’m sure in a very cute way) that he read every page in every book I brought.

My love for stories has grown with me. I read every Trixie Belden and every Nancy Drew, and as I migrated to “grown-up” books, I loved to find a series to glom onto. While a good standalone is always fun, finding a new world to immerse myself in where I can return from time to time is always a special treat.

Sometimes, I find a series and read a bunch and lose interest. Other times, I find a series and can’t wait until the next book comes out. I might tell myself, “Okay, that book was fabulous—she (or he) can’t possibly do it again.” And then the author writes another great book. And another. And another.

Such is the In Death series by J. D. Robb. I keep expecting—after nearly 50 books—that there’s going to be a gradual decline. How can anyone, even a serious, professional author, keep writing stories with punch to keep me turning pages—to make me want to read every single page? It’s like I’m waiting for a dud … and while there have been a couple that I didn’t like as well as others, there has been no dud. No crash and burn. No steady decline. And mostly? I get a book like Dark in Death, which goes near the top of my favorites in the series.

Take a visual tour of Dark in Death with GIFnotes!

I started reading Dark with a bit of a frown. Why? Because my first published book (The Prey) had a similar premise—a killer using an author’s books as blueprints for murder. But I certainly wasn’t the first author to use that premise, and J. D. Robb won’t be the last. The premise was where the similarities ended, however. By the end of Chapter One, I was hooked.

“What’s forty-five seconds?”

“Sorry, the shower scene. It runs for forty-five brilliant, terrifying seconds. I just wonder if the last thing she saw before … if the last thing she saw was murder.”

Forty-five seconds, Eve thought when he walked away.

More than enough time to kill.

From there, I couldn’t put the book down. I was completely invested in the police investigation, the characters—both new and familiar—and figuring out the crime along with Lieutenant Eve Dallas. And near the middle, just when I thought Robb was going to take an easy out, she did something I didn’t expect, which had me smiling as I finished the second half of the book in one sitting.

More than a good crime thriller, which Robb always delivers, there was some “insider” author commentary that had me nodding my head. For anyone who watched Castle (especially the first couple seasons) who is also a writer, there were many “writer truths” that had me doubled over in stitches. There were a few of those in Dark that had me smiling, spoken through Eve’s cynical and honest voice. Of course, Robb knows what she’s talking about.

So, I just re-read this review and realized I’m gushing. Yeah, I guess I am. One part thrilled, one part satisfied, and one part jealous. Why? Because I’m a writer, and I know that it isn’t easy to consistently write a great story. Series, standalone, or trilogies—writing is hard work.

Dark in Death has everything I want in a J. D. Robb thriller. Eve and Roarke, of course; Galahad, the spoiled fat cat; Peabody and McNab; a sprinkling of other favorites like Morris the M.E., Mira the profiler, Nadine the reporter, and the slew of Eve’s cops who—though they get little page time—have distinct personalities to add to the flavor of the story. And mostly, Dark in Death has a great murder mystery to solve with a compelling and believable villain. So here I am, done with the book and wondering when the next one is going to hit the shelves. I looked it up. I have to wait until September.

Fortunately, I have more books to read—and to write—while I impatiently wait for the next In Death.

    Reading a new J.D. Robb is like visiting with old friends–and getting a super puzzle to solve as well. Never fails to entertain.

  11. Suzette

    I was first introduced to Nora Roberts books by a friend of mine in 2001. Ever scence then I have read every book by her and have also gone to 3 different book signings. I also have quite a bit of her memorabilia/merchandise. To say I am a fan is an understatement. I always pre order her books now that I have a Kindle. Can wait to start reading Dark In Death tonight.

  12. Sharon Haas

    Thanks for the chance! This one is on my list.

  13. MaryC

  15. CarolC

    I love the In Death series. All the charaters make me smile.

  16. Carolyn Ussery

  18. Alice

    Can’t wait till this is out…I’d love to win! Please make my day!!! 🙂

  19. Lori Sharp

    This sounds exactly like the type of series I was hoping to read next! I have always loved mysteries and thrillers – from my young age of Nancy Drew, to my teens with Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock. I’m hoping J D Robb continues this series for a while – I love to read!

  20. Karen Terry

    I love her books.

  21. Kristine Marshall

    I ?? J.D. Robb Death Series. I regret finishing one, because I know I will have to wait for the next one to be written. 2 future plot lines I am looking forward too, someone CLOSE to Dallas dies, or that Dallas is pregnant. Would be interesting to see the character thrown for a loop, and/or the rest of the characters try to offer comfort. I usually borrow books from the library because I can get them in large print. But for this series I buy, & get out my full page magnifier. Can’t wait for it to come into the library.

  22. John Breidinger

    I read many JD Robb novels! Always great!

  23. Cara

    Oooh!

  24. Portia Asher

    I am in dire need of a new series..

  25. Melissa Lawrence

    I would love to win this book. I haven’t read any by this author as of yet. Thanks for the opportunity!

  26. Silver James

    If Allison numbers this on her Favorites in the Series list, I can’t wait to dive in. The In Death series is my Chicken Soup for Reading Slumps–any place, any time.

  27. Linda Poindexter

    I’m on the wait list at the library, can’t wait.

  28. Susan Marshall

    Wow. This sounds INTENSE. I’m kind of a big chicken so takes a lot for me to want to read something that scares me a little bit. But this sounds amazing. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the chance !

  29. Tanya Adams

    I love the In Death series. I read them again and again and never grow bored. I wait impatiently for the next book to come out so that I can read it. I love the world J. D. Robb has created.

  30. Amanda Scott

    Sounds like a good book!

  31. pat murphy

    Hope to win !

  32. Delma Luna

    Can’t wait to read this one. I read the first chapter and am ready for the rest.

  33. Sharon Sapp

    I love J.D.Robb. I am currently reading Secrets in Death. Only problem with these books is I can’t put them down!

  34. Lori Provenzano

    I’ve never read anything by J.D. Robb before. Sounds like I should!

  35. Nancy Shoemaker

    Great review and you hit the nail on the head, how does she “keep writing stories with punch to keep me turning pages—to make me want to read every single page”! Long as she keeps writing them, I’ll be buying them. Just love JD Robb/Nora Roberts!

  36. Karen Mikusak

    Would love to win!

  37. Lisa Harrell

    I’d really like to read this!

  48. Pearl Berger

    Great series by a talented author.

  49. Marlee Carroll

    Love JD ROBB and would love to win a copy of Dark In Death. One of my dog’s middle name was Roark. I tried to name my female, Eve Dallas, but she wouldn’t respond to it. She became Tallulah Bankhead, when she revealled herself to be a drama queen with a taste for wine. My new CRV is named Peabody, the trusty sidekick.

  50. Shawna Mixon

    I am like the author of this review, I keep thinking where does all her ideas keep coming from to keep making more books, all within the same world of Eve and Roarke. I’ve decided to slowly collect the entire In Death series of recent. Before it was all through the library or borrowing books from friends. And I have decided to start at the beginning and read them in order. That is another great thing, they can be read alone or not, and they still go great with the mini recaps of certain elements of past books. Right now, I’m getting ready to start on Vengeance in Death. And I will make my way to where she is at now as a writer again! <3

  51. iris sachs

    I havereadandown all ofJ D Robbs’ books. Most of them are great, while a few are good, none are bad.

  52. Patricia

    I have read every book in the series up to this point and cannot wait to read this one. Winning my own copy would be awesome!

  53. Vivian T.

    I have read, re-read, and re-re-read this series. It’s one of the few series that stays fresh and never fails to surprise me. I’m looking forward to reading this latest addition.

  54. Suz Webster

    I just got the Dark In Death today and can’t wait to begin it tonight! I am always sad when I read it so quickly, glad there are so many books in the series so I can go back and re-read them. I’ve Missed my fictional friends, Eve, Roarke, Peabody, and the rest. And our cat Sugar, is just like Galahad!

  55. Jean Barber

    There never has been a Robb that wasn’t a winner!

  56. Pam Hall

    I can’t wait to read this! I’m actually a couple books behind, no idea how I let that happen! Need to catch up!

  80. Kelley Warbinton

    I cannot get enough of the “In Death” series. I do not grow tired of the characters. I actually feel like they are family and close friends. There are other authors series that I’ve become bored with, but not J.D. Robb’s. I’ll read Nora’s other books, but they don’t capture me the same way!

  81. Terrie

    I look forward to reading this. I’ve enjoyed all of J.D. Robb’s books.

  94. Joan Emerson

    It’s difficult not to gush when talking about J.D. Robb’s captivating IN DEATH books. Each one is its own special treat in a series that never grows old and never fails to be intriguing. Eve’s fans, I’m sure, are legion. Thanks for a great review, Allison, and thanks to J.D. Robb for such an amazing series.

  95. Susan Wilkinson

    [s]I[/s] was a late-comer to this series because crime in the future just didnt sound like my thing. Then for some reason the back snippet on one of the books caught my attention so I started reading. That was it; I was HOOKED!!!! No choice but to then get the first in the series and go from there. I am in love and can’t wait to catchup and be able to read this one.

  104. Lynn Margolies

    I first found the “In Death” series by accident. I was in the emergency room, waiting, when I found a tattered copy of one of the early books (I forget which one….like maybe the 3rd or 4th book….). Picked it up and read it, been hooked ever since.Always kind of thought the book series would have made a nice television show.

    If this latest book in the series holds true to the others, it should be great….cannot waiut to read it.

  123. Janna Weston

    I started reading this series back in 2004, I think. Aside from the old harlequin stuff, I think I’ve read every single book she has written, both as Nora Roberts and JD Robb.

  140. Barbara Garnett

    Can’t wait to read the latest. I read them too fast, so try to slow down and enjoy. A late comer to this series, so I had fun searching for all the early ones and piecing together all the information prior to the one I started with (who everyone is how they met, etc. ) More fun to come!!
    Thanks

    Can’t wait to read this. I’ve got it on hold through the library.

  147. stephanie mellott

    I love J.D. Robb. I have all of her Death books i cant wait to read this new one.

  151. Laurie Wade

    I am a fan of J. D. Robb’s Eve Dallas, and I want to be just like her when I grow up. Of course I will have to grow up first, something I’ve managed to postpone for at least forty or fifty years. Each book reveals a new facet of the very polished series. I am getting my audiobook now!

  152. Candace Hart

    Getting ready to read Dark in Death. This is my favorite series. Love the characters and the stories.

  153. Dodie Kirkbride

    I have not had the chance to read books by J.D.Robb so I’m anxious to start.

  156. Donna Borchert

    I have read and re-read all the the In Death books. Just finished Dark In Death and I must say it did not disappoint! Loved the murder investigation and of course the Eve and Roarke scenes. Waiting impatiently for the next book in September!

  157. Kim Fear

    Planning on starting this book as soon as I finish the book I’m reading now.

  158. Valinda ward

    Fantastic which is what I expect from JD Robb. I thought I knew who the killer was but as usual I was wrong……. love

  159. Lori Keen

    Enjoy this series and cannot wait to read it. My book is on the truck. Love all of her books!

  160. Barbara Fitzpatrick

  163. Diane Sallans

    I love this series! I keep the books & am working on re-reading from the beginning.

  164. Kathleen Dodge

    J.D. Robb has never let me down. How she continues to put out such awesome stories is beyond me. She is so amazing, can’t wait to start reading Dark in Death! Just got it today! Hubby is eating sandwiches for supper! LoL

  165. Mary Jane DeWitt

    J D Robb and Nora Roberts’ books are my top favorites. I am so very grateful that she shares her talented gift for writing. Once I discovered her books, I went back and read each one in order, as it was published, and in doing so I have had the privilege of enjoying her stories as she has grown and evolved in her talent as an author. I agree with Allison this book is one of my top favorites in the series.

  166. Shaunterria Owens

    J.D. Robb is a perpetual favorite at my library!

  167. Jessica Kuzma

    Count me in!

  168. Anne-Marie McDonald

    The In Death series is my all-time favorite! For those of you who listen to audio books, In Death is amazing. Susan Erickson brings the characters to life, and she is the only way I read Eve’s stories.

  169. Susie Van Diver

    Just recieved my copy in the mail! Eve and Roarke are amazing together and Peabody is the perfect partner for the Lt. Looks like its time to curl up in my favorite chair and read!

  170. Gloria Zak

    I have read all of the Eve Dallas books. In fact, I enjoy this series so much, i have purchased most of them and are recycling back through the start of the series. I can’t get enough and the writing is so good, so entertaining. Why haven’t they made a movie yet?

  207. Connie McMillan

    Read what you said. Omg I feel like you do Allison! I was hooked first book & own the whole set except 2, well 3 now. Lol looking forward to hardback with poster!

  208. Bethann Hoy

    She is right there has not been any bad “In Death” stories. Some have been 4* but most have been 5* in ratings. The only complaint I have is that the time spent with friends is not in the books much anymore. The baby Bella is over 1 year now. Have an all girls day include Trinnie and .Bella.
    Thanks for reading my opinion,
    Bethann Hoy FighKat
