Vendetta in Death (In Death, #49)Vendetta in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do not know if J.D. Robb Has written a book that I did not love. I do not have favourite foods, colors, etc. If I was forced to choose a favourite series, the In Death of Eve Dallas series would have to be it. I did receive a free copy via NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I am two finger typing this while on Nava in Europe so that should give an idea of how much I love these books. It seems sure that some series cannot break free of the second book syndrome when this series is 49 strong and still as Fresh and exciting for me as when I found this series. I read them. I listen to them on audio book and I am still surprised that nothing ever seems formulaic. Are there certain patterns in each book? Certainly. The reader can count on Roarke being involved somehow and McNabb will always have on bright clothes and boo around in air boots. But, the mysteries are still good. The world building is too notch. The character development is still one of my favorite aspects. Even if the reader knows who the killer is from the start, you can bet watching the team dig into is going to be great. I look forward to these books and love that we get a dose twice a year.

In Vendetta in Death, men are being murdered and it does seem like the reader would not have much sympathy for any of them given their past feeds as well as some of their current deeds. None of them appear redeemable but, the killings are so savage that the reader has a hard time not feeling bad for them despite their behavior. But, the reader also has good insite into their victims so we read and wait and let Dallas and crew work on giving justice according to my favorite motto. "NO MATTER YOUR RACE, CREED, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, OR POLITICAL AFFILIATION, WE PROTECT AND SERVE,* BECAUSE YOU COULD GET DEAD."
