5,0 sur 5 étoiles#50, of In Death series
Commenté au Canada le 22 février 2020
Great book. J.D.Robb reigns again. She tops it again. I've enjoyed the serie since the first book. I love Eve Dallas no nonsense interpretations of sayings, so literal. It makes me laugh. Thanks J.D.Robb / Nora Roberts for this masterpiece.
Nora Roberts (aka JD Robb) writes yet another awesome book in the In Death series. I love getting to know all of the characters and miss them when the book is done. I always have her next book on preorder.
Comme tous ces livres, l'intrigue est très bonne, la relation entre le couple est toujours très intéressante et piquante. Toujours hâte au suivant. Jusqu'à date j'ai relu depuis le début tous ces livres.
I am a long time reader of the In Death series. For me the human interaction of the main characters made the books special. It seems in the last 2 OR 3 books there has been less and less of that. Maybe JD/Nora feels we know the characters after 50 books so well we don't need that. I hope not. Have pre ordered next book but may change my mind
5,0 sur 5 étoilesThe fiftieth book in the series, and I still can't wait for number fifty one!

Throughout this series some reviewers have complained because not all of Eve's ever-growing circle of friends have been included in each book. While Roarke's Irish family appears to have disappeared off the face of the earth (and the other planets in which he has an interest), and there are lots of characters from earlier books from whom I'd like to see an occasional appearance (Nixie Swisher; Father Chale Lopez; Ariel Greenfield, etc), Golden in Death, although there's a brief appearance from Charles and Louise, and a heartwarming encounter with Dennis Mira, concentrates wholly on Eve and Peabody's tracking down of the killers using an extremely localised noxious gas to kill specific targets. We see all of Eve's investigative team, Morris, Berenski, Harvo, but, other than a brief nod to the ongoing bad-taste socks and ties competition within the bullpen, they're there purely to carry out their duties in the background. The investigation covers a part of society to which Robb returns often, and her battles with lawyers, arrogant spoilt brats, and those who consider themselves above the law are well up to standard. No spoilers, but you really have to read Peabody's response to someone who pours scorn on Dallas, state school attendees, and Free-Agers - brilliant! While I can see no value in the sex passages between Dallas and Roarke - possibly a hangover from the days of M&B and the requirement for sex every so many pages - there are some genuinely moving moments between the two of them, and I'm living in hope that Eve's finally getting rid of some of the unnecessary baggage from her past, which, at one stage in the series, became almost a cut-and-paste in every book. Golden in Death is worth every penny, and now I'll have to wait at least another 6 months for the next one to appear.
There was a time when J D Robb could supplement this straightforward investigation format with sub-plots, character development, humour, hilarious one-liners and a range of background stories involving interesting secondary characters and their lives. For the best example of the aforesaid, try Innocent in Death which has all the aforementioned ingredients and two very satisfying outcomes, one personal and one professional. This is a solid story but without the range of characters and scenarios that always made these books so multi-faceted. There are two more books in this series ready for publication later in 2020 and in 2021. This makes me feel they are being churned out to keep a loyal audience happy. What a shame! J D Robb seems to have exhausted many of the plot themes that kept the series moving forward. This is disappointing considering what she is capable of.
I must admit I expected something spectacular for the 50th edition - as we received from "From New York to Dallas" but this was not the case. Very much "same old, same old", nothing new and exciting and very predictable. It was lacking in the normal sparkling dialogue between the characters and any interest in the plot didn't start until a third of the way through and then it was nothing special. I have given this book 4 starts because I am a great fan of Nora Roberts, but had it been written by another author I would probably given it 2 stars. Sorry Nora but not one of your best.
Let me state I love these books , Eve DAllas is a brilliant character, add in Roarke..... And the ever growing for me of friends as Eve matures and starts healing g inside and opens herself up to LOVE. I have all the In Death books in book and kindle form sometimes in both .. I have all on mp3 ......NOT Golden In Death..... This book was disappointing to say the least , number 50 should be something special this wasn't.... Sorry Nora didn't like it at all , it was boaring.... But one unlike booking 50 is not bad ....looking forward to shadows in death
I think I've read all the books in this series and enjoyed them all, but this is one of the best. I like the way the characters are developing and we're learning more about them. Plus the plot's a cracker and the writing is clear. One minor thing: maybe not everyone would say/think 'because boss' or similar - some would use a complete phrase. Peabody might if Dallas does, but Grange too? Other than that I loved it. Can't wait for the next one: I always pre-order then get a nice surprise when it appears in my library.
