    One thought on “Treachery in Death”

    1. Having read and pretty much loved all the books in the In Death series, I'm no longer able to be rational and unbiased when it comes to them. At this point, I think of them as one very, very, very long book that's released in installments and, as a whole, the book is fan-tas-tic.I want to be Eve, marry Roarke, spar with Summerset, work with Peabody, be friends with Mavis, brainstorm with Feeney, be overwhelmed by McNab's wardrobe and, just for fun, kick some serious ass!

    2. One of my favorites in this series. It was exciting - nail-biting even at times - and the bad guy was really bad. I loved it! Also, I loved one of Eve's detectives - Jacobson. He delivers an amazing command of the English language. He plays it like a violin:“Drop the fucking weapon, you fucking motherfucker or I'll fucking scramble your fucking brains. Hands up! Hands where I can fucking see them, you fucking cocksucker. You fucking breathe wrong, you fucking blink wrong, and I will fuck you u [...]

    3. it was always going to be a 4 star but that ending . OMG. I cried. Took me a while to finish this one due to family duties! But it was worth it. I now have a dilemma do I read the next in the series, which I have been dying to get to or do I read the new Sandra Brown release! Decisions! Decisions!I am seriously in love with EVE.As they filed out, Feeney walked to her. He laid a hand on her shoulder."Not bad." he said. "Not bad at all."Roarke is sexy as fuck.All the secondary characters are fan [...]

    4. Another winner and favorite for me! ❤ It was a bit different from the others in that the murders that took place centered on crooked cops. Eve, Peabody and her team would leave no stone unturned as they worked to bring these cops down. While the entire story was FABULOUS, the last two chapters were crazy!!! IMHO I don’t often shed tears while reading these books. There are scenes with Roarke and Eve that draw them out but with a minute or two left to the book there was a moment between Eve, [...]

    5. ”Peabody may find more, something specific, the hair on the camel’s back----“ (Eve)“Straw.” Wwbster smiled a little. “It’s the straw that broke the camel’s back.”“What would a camel do with a straw?” (Eve)”Drop the fucking weapon, you fucking motherfucker or I'll fucking scramble your fucking brains. Hands up! Hands where I can fucking see them, you fucking cocksucker. You fucking breathe wrong, you fucking blink wrong, and I will fuck you up. Fucker." Jacobsen snarled it [...]

    6. My name is Ann Lou *waves* and I am an In Death series addict. Will I wish to be cured from this addiction? A big fat NO. Anyways, there is a murder at the first chapter with Peabody as the primary but as what she said "it was a slam dunk". The case was closed within a day. What made this an interesting installment is when Peabody got trapped in the shower hearing a convo about a couple of corrupt cops. So, basically this installment is just that. Good cops vs Bad cops. Very exciting, indeed.My [...]

    7. TREACHERY IN DEATH is the 32nd book in the In Death series. Naturally there are books that I prefer over others, but overall I love the series and find that Nora Roberts AKA J.D. Robb does an awesome job mixing it up and making it still seem fresh. I know there are other readers who do not feel the same way as I do and I respectfully disagree with them. I think they’re bummed because Eve and Roarke aren’t umm . . . banging each other 24/7 like they did when they first got together. I actuall [...]

    8. It was so nice to be back in Eve and Roarke's world again!! This instalment was awesome and kept me very entertained. My only complaint would be that I would have liked to have had more Eve and Roarke time!!! The focus was mainly on the murder case which is quite usual but this time it was more focused on it than them.If you haven't read this series yet, I strongly urge you to give it a go! It's not to be missed!

    9. This is my fave book in the seriesAfter working out in the gym, Peabody hears 2 officers enter the locker room and begin arguing. Trapped, alone and weaponless she realizes that they are not just arguing about a case, but also about corruption and murder. As soon as they leave and she realizes it's safe, she contacts her co-hab McNab and they head over to Lt. Eve Dallas house.The readers find out early on in the book who the bad guys are and the lengths they are willing to go to keep their illeg [...]

    10. I always love this series but I particularly loved this installment. I loved the change of mystery and the interpersonal byplay we got to see, as well as a peek into Eve's emotional and psychological growth. This book made me happy!

    11. In Death is one of the two series with m/f (sub)plot that I'm still reading. The fact that I read the other one only to find out what happens to the gay couple and that I've given up on the rest almost two decades ago is saying something about this series. The appeal is in the futuristic setting, competent police procedural/mystery plots and, of course, kick-ass heroine.Treachery in Death is a better, more coherent book that the previous one. Here we see Eve cleaning out her own house and she do [...]

    12. What a great book - right up there with my all time favourites in the ID series. Nothing I love to hate more than a wrong cop - add in a whole squad of wrong cops and that makes one hellava story.Kick-ass Eve earns her name with a flourish in this book. She has so much to be proud of with her own squad and with her partner!Love the girl fight at the end - great book, must read for all!5 stars, 2 thumbs up!

    13. Love the fact that Peabody has a major role. This has become one of my favorites in a favorite series.2018 - There are so many really good scenes in this, all worth re-reading. I have to say that the catfight between Dallas and Lt Oberman at the end is pretty much gratuitous, even though, as Cmdr Whitney says, "it was as satisfying to experience as it was to observe."I've been skimming a lot of the books in this series, and, as Roarke has commented several times, Dallas *does* tend to get hit in [...]

    14. I find books that have dirty cops in them fascinating. I think the reason why is that I find those dirty cops so offensive, as most of them are on the job for the right reasons and do a hard job. So when this book dealt with dirty cops I knew it would be a great job. There is nothing that Eve hates more than someone who bastardizes what she holds holy. What I found so much fun about this book is the crime was clear and spelled out early on in the book. So most of the book was Eve and crew workin [...]

    15. What a terrific book. I love watching Eve go up against Rene Oberman. Good cop versus bad cop on the simplest level, but this book is about so much more. It's about leadership and command styles and how respect is earned. Peabody gets some meaty moments starting off with her role as Primary in the takedown of the street thugs, then followed quickly by her eye witness shower stall scene. Unlike some InDeaths, this book never drags. All action all the time and very little time is spent navel gazin [...]

    16. Super Duper Read!!! Great characters and personalities, suspense, emotions, humor, teamwork, respect, some steaminess, tough decisions, fast-paced, and a magolicously iced ending. Another great book for the shelf. Keeps getting better and better. Still ready for the next. I'm going inlow and to the right Yay! Totally Enjoy!

    17. Please note that I gave this 4.5 stars out of 5 stars and rounded it to 5 stars on .The only reason why I did not give this one 5 stars was because the speech that Dallas pours all over Mira later on was too much. I may have rolled my eyes a lot. But everything else in the story works perfectly, though once again I may have said shut up Roarke a few times.After finishing up a case with Dallas, Peabody goes off to work out at the precinct and while in the locker room about to take a shower she ov [...]

    18. I finished reading last night and I was like asking all questions why people can’t all be passionate and be their best in what they are doing. I went to my answers and cried first to understanding the nature of evil that maybe I will never fathom because no matter how and why I still don’t know why it still continue to possess every man’s motive to live.Treachery in Deathgot me rethink my life all together again for this has a very honest and universal theme of crime and battle of wits and [...]

    19. #32 in the In Death seriesI've enjoyed every single one of the books in this series, but this was a particularly good one. Instead of following the usual track of a murderer, Peabody overhears a conversation between two bad cops and gets Eve and the team involved in following up on their activities. Lots of action, and Eve does a lot of interaction with the suspects. Since this is an undercover-type of operation, there are fewer cops involved, and Roarke does a lot of the e-work. We meet again w [...]

    20. Rating: 4/5***Minor spoilers***Lieutenant Dallas and her partner Detective Peabody are working a case that seems pretty cut and dry. Death takes place, suspects are located fairly easily, they end up confessing, and that's it. However, that isn't the main case in this book. That's introduced when Peabody is in the locker room of the NYPSD's gym and overhears something pretty incriminating. She overhears two officers arguing about something involving dirty money, a many year long side business, a [...]

    21. 2017 Update: This book remains one of my top five favorites in the series. It's as close to perfect as a book can get, tugging the reader's emotions in so many different directions. I have a girl crush on Eve and a major love affair with Roarke. I'll add in all the officers in her squad and the usual backups (the E-geeks, Mira, Whitney and Summerset.) It just gets better with every reread.2015 reread: My original review has been saved below. It's been four years since I last read this book. My o [...]

    22. 4 ~ 4.5 "Eve Ass Kicking" StarsSimply put - there is no female cop in Fictionlandia more kick ass than Eve Dallas. Here in Treachery in Death Eve is in her element as she goes after an entire squad of dirty cops with the help of Roarke, Peabody, and the rest of the gang. She's formidable, cunning, and totally hardcore. She's my ultimate girl crush and I loved every minute!! The only reason this fell shy of 5 stars for me is because the final "confrontation" between Eve and "the suspect" wasn't t [...]

    23. Treachery ranks in the top 5 of the In Death series for me. The identity of the villain/s is known very early on in this one, & the case quickly becomes personal to Eve. I really enjoyed watching as Eve methodically builds her case to take them down. She is always good but this one is special - like sitting through a command performance by a world-class orchestra. As always, the character interaction is superb with appearances by several of my favorites of the series. The teamwork is showcas [...]

    24. J. D. Robb ist ein Pseudonym, unter dem die bekannte Autorin Nora Roberts schreibt. Die Reihe um Eve Dallas geht mit 'Verrat aus Leidenschaft' bereits in die 32. Runde. Die Bände rund um Lieutenant Dallas erscheinen in regelmäßigen Abständen und meist auch wenige Monate nacheinander, so dass hier keine langen Wartezeiten entstehen. Auch wenn durchaus mal Bezug auf einen vorherigen Fall genommen werden kann, behandeln alle Bände abgeschlossene Fälle, so dass man auch problemlos später eins [...]

    25. Naked in a shower in an old, unused gym in the basement of Cop Central, Peabody overhears two cops arguing about their own corruption and conspiracy in murder. One of them is a lieutenant, the daughter of a decorated ex-cop who is a legend and Whitney's predecessor. Knowing that if she is discovered, she is dead, she waits out the tense moments until their argument is over and they are gone. Shaken, she contacts McNabb and Eve to let them know what she has heard. This kicks off an investigation [...]

    26. With this series Robb has started to shift gears from mysteries with a lot of romance to mysteries with some romance. At this point these are really police procedurals with a strong romance component. And I'm happy with that mix. In this outing Eve is thinking she'll have some downtime after the uncomplicated case she and Peabody worked on concludes. Peabody, who was primary on the case, is happy with how things went but because of an altercation with a perp, decides to get some workout time in. [...]

    27. Second Read: I really liked this book, and seemed to enjoy it more the second time. Naked in a shower in an old, unused gym in the basement of Cop Central, Peabody overhears two cops arguing about their own corruption and conspiracy in murder. One of them is a lieutenant, the daughter of a decorated ex-cop who is a legend and Whitney's predecessor. Knowing that if she is discovered, she is dead, she waits out the tense moments until their argument is over and they are gone. Shaken, she contacts [...]

    28. Treachery in Death was like a breath of fresh air :) I wasn't a big fan of the last two books in the series, but I absolutely loved this book! Treachery in Death is about Eve and her squad trying to take down a dirty police squad at Central. Peabody overhears the dirty squad's lieutenant and a detective discussing murder and their business of stealing confiscated narcotics to sell/distribute. Peabody tells Eve about what she heard, so Eve and the gang try to come up with a plan to make the arres [...]

    29. For me, this breathed new life into a series that can go stale in an instant, if the author were to start repeating story lines, which she did here to an extent. However, with this book, she did the corruption on a much larger scale and made it more personal to Eve. It is through that personal connection that we get a good look at just how much being a cop means to Eve. As usual, we get "face" time with most of the recurring characters, and even a surprise visit from a character we haven't seen [...]

    30. This time it is Peabody who starts off the action. Trapped, and undressed appropriately, for a shower, Peabody overhears enough of a conversation between two fellow police officers to learn that they are deep into something illegal. The question is how many bad cops are there? Very entertaining.
