There have been several deaths, one of them at the home a successful writer who has just released a book concerning a decades old jewel theft.  It just so happens that the jewels have never been recovered and someone wants them. Now Eve is on the trail of both who committed these murders as well as what happened to the jewels.

This is the J. D. Robb half of the book Remember When, which includes both a Nora Roberts part and a J. D. Robb part.  The J. D. Robb portion was later released as Big Jack. To date there are 43 books in the In Death series, with one more expected to be released in September of 2012.  These books 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.

The story was interesting and Eve Dallas’s style while she is working is always good reading. The identity and motive of the murderers was made know fairly early on, it was just a matter of Eve and team following the details in order to locate the culprits.

Big Jack is a standalone book and can be either read alone or in conjunction with Remember When. It has an exciting story which piques the interest of the reader from the first page and continues to develop up to an exciting ending.  If you enjoy a good crime drama then you will enjoy this book, it is also a great addition to the In Death series.
