"Conspiracy In Death" - J.D. Robb

Hello fellow bibliophiles! If you have read any of my past reviews, you may have noticed the In Death series pop up a few times. Fair warning, you will continue to see more since there are currently 41 books in the series and currently I just finished number 8. I promise to continue keeping all spoilers out! If, for some reason, there is information in the review that may be a spoiler for those who have not read the series, I promise to forewarn you ahead of time!!! Make sure to not skip ahead when reading my reviews!

"Streetwise cop Eve Dallas and her trusty sidekick Peabody face a methodical killer in this latest addition to the In Death series by J.D. Robb, better known as the bestselling author Nora Roberts. In the late 21st century, on the streets of New York City, a street sleeper is found murdered, his diseased heart removed with surgical precision. His death would typically drop to the bottom of a list of senseless and inexplicable killings, but Lieutenant Dallas, who "would stand for the dead and the living," is not about to let that happen. When her research uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she's facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup. To complicate matters further, Dallas faces an equally troubling threat to her career when she's linked to the death of a fellow cop. Now she must fight to restore her good name as well as track down the killer. 

In Conspiracy in Death, Roberts creates a futuristic world of evil that Eve Dallas negotiates through tough talk and brute force. While Robb crafts the crimes with great care, she assumes a familiarity with the characters that new readers will lack. But fans of the In Death series and newcomers alike will enjoy the thrill of the chase as Eve Dallas sets out to get her man."

As I have stated before, these books are generally something that would be out of my wheel-house. I'm not usually into the "futuristic" genre, but something about this series is different. The characters are engaging, witty, and highly intelligent. The books are full of suspense and mystery, and usually, I am left guessing until the end. While I am still highly intrigued into this series, there were parts of Conspiracy In Death that lost me. There are many characters who hold positions in varies medical fields throughout the book. Some hold minor roles but others are key players yet they all come in and out throughout the entire book. It sometimes got to be confusing on who was who. As before, I love the relationship between Eve Dallas and Roarke. It's real yet unrealistic; it's witty yet full of seriousness, and it's full of back-and-forth romance. So far, I haven't lost interest and I hope I never do. Until then, I will keep reading the series! As always, feel free to share your thoughts, comments, or recommendations!

Happy reading fools :)
