DEVOTED IN DEATH continues the In Death series with fiction's
sexiest couple, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband,
world mogul Roarke. With each story you follow the method that
Dallas, her detectives along with Roarke, will
use to solve a case. This standalone series is written in the future where cash
money is obsolete, real coffee and meat are a luxury, licensed
companions are legal, and handguns are antiques. If you have
read all the books in this series you will understand how
certain cases will effect Dallas more than others because
of her past. Dallas and Roarke understand each other inside out because they

There is some humor when you see how Eve responds to praises
that are common to us today which she finds odd in the future.
The latest case that Dallas and her team works involves
deranged criminals Ella-Loo and her boyfriend Darryl who
commit murders from Arkansas to New York City. Throughout
their road trip the two criminals find their thrill by
committing murders and torturing victims. When they end up in
Dallas's jurisdiction, her team at the New York Police Security
Department will not stop until they bring these criminals
In Death is a great series because I like the method that Dallas
uses when solving her cases. She always puts herself in the
victims place and sees things through their eyes. Sometimes
the situations become very personal due to her painful past.
When the pain becomes too much, her gorgeous husband Roarke is
always there to give her all the support she needs. When you
consider how Dallas has re-invented herself it's touching how
her detectives become like a family to her. Meeting Roarke
and letting him in helped Dallas to discover what love and
having a family and friends mean.
I would recommend if DEVOTED IN DEATH is the first book of the
series you have read. Reading the other books in the series
will help you appreciate how each of the characters have
