I have been a fan of author Nora Roberts for a long time, and when I was at my local library the last time, I was intrigued by a book I saw in which Nora Roberts wrote as "J.D. Robb, " and so I decided to check it out.
Wow, what a good find! The book is called Memory In Death, and I was glad I came across this book. The book centers around main character Eve Dallas, who is a lieutenant for NYPD. Something I liked about this book is that it is set in the future, and so even though the story for the most part could have happened today, there are definitely some futuristics element that are worked into the story. Enough to make it noticable, but never distracting.
In this book, Eve is solving a murder in which she knows the victim. I like the fact that the main character is a very strong female, but who also has vulnerabilities that make her seem "real." The author does a phenomenal job in telling a story with lots of detail, and has a nice blend of characters with differing personality traits that all work very well together. The book has a nice flow to it, and I had trouble putting it down, because I kept finding myself wanting to know what was going to happen next!
After I had already finished reading this book, I found out that this book is actually part of a series, called the "In Death" series. This book is actually the 25th book in the series, all of which revolve around main character Eve Dallas. This book is definitely a stand alone book, because I never would have guessed that it was a series, but I will definitely go back and start from the beginning!
