IN DEATH Series

Naked In Death by JD Robb
Book 1 of the In Death series
Genre: crime fiction

About Naked In Death:
In hardcover for the first time, here is the novel that started it all-the first book in J. D. Robb's number-one New York Times-bestselling In Death series, featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.

It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion.

When a senator's daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she'd been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washington politics and society. Further complicating matters is Eve's growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome... and the leading suspect in the investigation.

My Thoughts:
Don't really remember why I am a fan of this series. Sure, it is good enough, but, there are times when I am not totally enamoured with this series. Secondly, this is a crime fiction. I'm not a crime fiction girl. I'm an urban fantasy geek! Still I am an old fan. This series also has a huge following, which tells us that JD Robb's story telling abilities is not something to scoff at. It has real merit. Secondly, the plot in every book is solid, well-structured, and logical. This is the kind of author that knows how to build a plot. She does not need to make her characters act stupid to give her story the dilemma. This is the kind of author that does not give us too stupid to live (TSTL) characters. For that alone, I think I would have become JD Robb's fan! And 39 books down the line and still going strong tells us that this series has staying power!

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries
