A computer program written by a group of terrorist vigilantes is killing people. They have decided to rid the world of the dregs of society, people who are preying on children. This program causes these evil miscreants to go crazy and die.  The only problem is they are taking innocent people down with them.  Although these people deserve to die, Eve is still determined to find the killers and stop them.

Purity in Death is the seventeenth instalment in the In Death series by J.D. Robb. To date she has written 42 books in the series, with one more expected to be released in February of 2012.  These are crime drama, suspense and romance because they focus on the case Eve is currently working on as well as her 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. They are written by Nora Roberts under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb.

Eve and Peabody with a little help from Roake, McNab and Feeney are hot on the trail of these cold blooded murders.  They will stop at nothing and let no one get in their way as they follow the trail of the guilty. Trueheart gets pulled into this story as a minor player in this story.  The plot unfolds in a well paced manner with a good build up to the final unveiling.

The story was interesting and kept me engaged right up until the end. It was not one of the better books written in the series, but it was still worth reading. If you enjoy reading crime drama with a strong female lead in a futuristic environment, then you will enjoy this book.

  1. I’m simply surprised that a writer can sustain such a long relationship with he rcharacters. Conan Doyle was mightily relieved to be rid of Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls but later asa consewquence of public pressure had to revive him for ‘Baskervilles.’ Don’t many writers tire of characters when perhaps they’ve nothing new to be discovered?

    1. I am always surprised at the new In Death novels that are released, but I find them interesting. At times some of them do seem recycled, but I still enjoy reading about the characters. I have also read all the Sherlock Holmes books and I enjoyed each one. Thanks for the comment and the follow. I am now following you on Twitter.
