✪ Desperation In Death (In Death #55) ✪ JD Robb ✪


The Sunday Times bestselling series is back with a gripping new thriller that pits homicide detective Eve Dallas against a conspiracy of exploitation and evil...

Mina Rose Cabot, age thirteen, disappeared walking home from soccer practice in Devon, Pennsylvania.

Eight months later her body is found in Battery Park, New York, speared through the chest by a three-inch piece of wood.

Lt. Eve Dallas knows that whoever took Mina is responsible for her death. But who took her and where has Mina been for eight long months...?

55 books in and still enjoying a series as much as book one?
JD Robb again keeps me engrossed, enthralled and guessing as she takes on the job of Eve breaking up a child trafficking syndicate.

And Eve does it with passion, heart and empathy.

I loved seeing Eve deal with her past again as she digs deep into what is happening in the present.

Dallas is a badass - no ifs or buts about it.

And I love that Robb/Nora Roberts has stayed true to her vision and her characters, nearly 30 years down the track.

This is definitely one of my favourites in the series (though I think I say that after reading every book haha)/

Bring on book #56!
