Review: Interlude in Death by J.D. Robb

Title: Interlude In Death
Series: In Death
Author: J.D. Robb
Read copy: eBook (Kindle)
Published: August 29, 2006
Publisher: Berkley

In early spring of 2059, Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called off planet to face a grueling ordeal—giving a seminar at the largest police conference of the year, to be held in a swanky resort. A resort which just happens to be owned by her husband, Roarke, of course.

Even though Eve can't quite see it that way, it's supposed to be at least partly a vacation. But work intrudes in the form of a bloody homicide, and Eve is off and running. The case is complicated by Eve's personal history with the victim—and by the killer's history with Roarke. As danger closes in and the body count rises, Eve must find a way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge, and shove the past back where it belongs.

My rating:

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is one of the keynote speakers at a law enforcement conference, which is a problem, since she doesn't want to do it. The second problem is, the conference is off planet, which means deadly space travel, and at her husband's pet project Olympus resort. And the third problem is one of the other keynote speakers, a legend in the law enforcement community, who's harboring a grudge against Roarke, as a proxy for a dead man...And he's willing to do pretty much everything to make sure Roarke pays.

Short, but to the point. Concise, well-paced, gripping and intense, with a solid mystery, some added insight into Eve and Roarke's (possibly connected) past.

There was no angst, no romantic drama, just straight-up suspense/mystery and procedural with some danger thrown into the mix.

Loved it.
