Not only is Eve required to speak at the largest police conference of the year, which she hates, but in order to do so she must travel off planet, something she hates even more. While there she comes face to face with an unknown assailant who has a personal vendetta against both Roake and herself. This is a good futuristic suspense novella featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas.  She is a tough, smart, likeable homicide detective. In each book she solves a crime and finds the killer. The book also encompasses her entire life including her personal relationships.

Interlude in Death is the fourteenth instalment of the In Death series by J.D. Robb, to date she has written 40 books in the series, with 2 more expected to be released later in 2011.  This novella was originally released in Out of the World, a paperback published by Jove 8/1/2001. It falls into the crime drama, suspense and romance categories as the book focuses on the case Eve is currently working on as well as Eve and Roake’s personal relationship. This is a futuristic suspense that takes place in 2059 in New York City. The books are told in a third person narrative that focuses primarily on Lieutenant Eve Dallas, but at times the story is also told through some of the other characters including the murderer. The books are written by Nora Roberts under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb.

I enjoyed the story, it was told well and I liked how the clues were slowly released to reveal who the murderer really was as well as what motivated him.  We learn more about Rouke’s past, which I always find fascinating.

If you enjoy the In Death series, then you will not be disappointed.  This is a standalone novella and can be quickly enjoyed.  It is available from the library as an audio book. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about strong female lead characters and enjoys a suspenseful crime drama.
