In Book 2 of this very long running series (50+ titles and counting), Eve is pursuing a serial killer who's murdered a district attorney and a tv star. When Eve reluctantly presents herself as bait for the suspect, it doesn't turn out quite the way she planned. In this book, Eve has made tentative steps towards moving in with Roarke. Amelia Peabody makes her first appearance as a street cop who impresses Eve with her observations and performance at a murder scene.

I'm really enjoying this series so far. Glory in Death was just as much fun, just as thrilling, and just as intriguing as the first. Roarke and Eve's relationship is in full swing, and he often helps Eve with whichever case she's running at the moment, as she attends events on his arm. She's still feisty and independent and hell-bent on solving her cases above most anything else. There's just enough adult content in here to keep you salivating for the next, but it doesn't go graphically overboard. The murder mystery is intriguing without the killer being obvious, and plenty of red herrings thrown in for good measure. Eve is growing on me as we learn more about her past and she is settling into her relationship with Roarke, which tempers her a bit and sometimes puts Roarke's patience to the test, but they strike a strangely perfect balance with each other. I'm eager to dive into the next!

This one is better than the first. Lots of twists and turns. This is a great series with a tougher than tough female cop in the future where things aren't much different than today.

Really enjoyed this book. Plan to read next in series. Can see Roarke & Dallas are on their way to romance & crime solving in 2025.

Very readable but the killer turns out to be the person you first thought of; the aggressive controlling sex is unpleasant and does not fit the lead character’s back story; the boyfriend just conveniently comes to the rescue all the time. So readable but not satisfying.

A romance novel involving a rich lover and a light science fiction with detective work devoid of drama. Not for me.

Great mystery in this Eve Dallas novel. Also great character development with Roarke and Eve. Their relationship is one of the most perfect in text.

Ahhh, must be nice having a super-rich boyfriend providing all kinds of luxurious surreal goodies. Our heroine enjoys but does not take for granted. And duty compels her to dive into the dirt and violence of the real world to seek justice for murder victims. A female white knight.
