Review: Big Jack by J.D. Robb

Title: Big Jack
Series: In Death
Author: J.D. Robb
Read copy: eBook (Kindle)
Published: February 23, 2010
Publisher: Berkley

In New York City in 2059, someone is pursuing missing gems from a decades-old heist...someone who's willing to kill for them. Sharp-witted and sexy, NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas is used to traveling in the shadowy corners outside the law. And in a future where crime meets cutting-edge technology, she will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all-and stop the danger and death that have surrounded them for years.

My rating:

Almost sixty years after the heist in Hot Rocks, the quarter of the diamonds that has never been recovered is back in the limelight thanks to the book written by Laine and Max Gannon's granddaughter who comes home from her book tour to find her house sitter dead...Someone is obviously determined to get their hands on the famous diamonds and are willing to do anything in their power to achieve the goal.

This one was definitely nothing to write home about. There was some sort of disconnect between the story and this particular reader, and I didn't care much about the diamonds or the killer's identity. Something in the mystery/suspense department was simply off.

What saved this one were the well-known characters and their ever-developing relationships, but there is only so much even great characters can do to boost up a rather mediocre story.
