Glory in Death by J. D. Robb
The dead were her business. She lived with them, worked with them, studied them. She dreamed of them. And because that didn't seem to be enough, in some deep, secret chamber of her heart, she mourned for them.
A decade as a cop had toughened her, given her a cold, clinical, and often cynical eye toward death and its many causes. It made scenes such as the one she viewed now, on a rainy night on a dark street nasty with litter, almost too usual. But still, she felt.
Murder no longer shocked, but it continued to repel.
Glory in Death is the second book in J. D. Robb's series featuring Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke. It begins with a murder of a noted prosecutor, someone that Eve had worked with and thought well of. I listened to this one on audio with Susan Ericksen narrating. She's done all the books in this series and, in my head, she's the voice of Eve. The reader gets to meet additional characters that will appear in later books and also get to know others better. The relationship between our two main characters progresses and I like how they are with each other. For me, this is a favorite series and I'm having fun rereading the early books. If you like a great series that seems to go on and on, this one is recommended by me.
The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects—including her own lover, Roarke. As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead...to investigate every scandalous rumor...to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark. Or how dangerous.
