Glory In Death by J.D. Robb

Synopsis: In a time when technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion - in the heart. . . The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke. As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead . . .to investigate every scandalous rumor . . to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.

My Thoughts: I'm reading these books out of order. I read the last one first, this one, the second one, second. Which would be ok if I had already read the first one. But the first one will be next putting it in third place. It hasn't detracted from the two stories already read, so that's good. I enjoyed this with its futuristic touches, bits of romance and mystery all the way. I did figure out "who done it" when the second person was killed. When the third was killed that clenched it. It was wrapped up neatly, which I liked.

LOL on the out-of-order reading, at least it didn't alter your enjoyment of the story.

I'm a big fan of the In Death series. I'm glad reading them out of order didn't confuse you. A lot of the In Death books are good standalones, but I think you get a better sense of the character development when you read them in order. Anyways, glad you liked it! I'd be interested to see what you think of Naked in Death.
