Book review: Treachery in Death, J.D. Robb
Treachery in Death
J.D. Robb is back with a taught thriller about a dirty cop running the Illegals division. Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke - along with Peabody, McNab and the rest of the crew - work together to solve the murder of a dead junkie, finding it tied into a conspiracy at the very top of the Illegals division. They must tread carefully, working with IAB and the NYPSD brass to make the charges stick.
I wasn't expecting to enjoy this one, since it was more intrigue than Robb's usual fare, but I found it to be compelling. It was one of Robb's better efforts in awhile, and while some of the decisions played better for drama than realistic police work, and the climax seemed a little gratuitous, it was overall a good read.
