Special review: Promises in Death from March 2009

Welcome back to the year 2060 in the 28th installment of the In Death series, Promises in Death, by JD Robb. For Amaryllis Coltraine, she was a recent transfer to the New York City Police Department from Atlanta, and knew how to defend herself against an assailant. When she was killed in front of her own place by her own weapon, this was more than personal for Eve Dallas and the rest of the NYPSD, too. For all of them who mourned her loss, it was up to Eve to investigate her background to see who wanted to take one of their own. And this time, she didn't take taunted treats too kindly, when the next one was aimed at her.

This was a wild and crazy futuristic romantic suspense. I loved the futuristic outlook of New York in 2060 in ways of communication and technology that have improved ten times over.  I loved how Eve became strong, while letting no one ever bring her down. I like how Roarke backed her up and assist her on these cases. I loved how their romance and marriage was strong as hard nails. I did care about Eve, Roarke and the others in this novel. To lose one of their own in the worst unimaginable way was unconscionable to me. Great drama, terrific intrigue and plenty of suspense for a perfect page-turner to the end.

Promise to give this a good read? Give this book a try today!
