These are series books and this one is, “Promises in Death”. The misery here is the DB (dead body) is a policewoman. She is not all that well known to Eve, but her murder falls to Eve to solve.
Even is you’ve not read any of these books before J.D. Robb draws you into the group of characters in this book, many who will be in the other Death books. There’s a whole slew of them so if you end up liking these (some do and some don’t…I definitely do!) you’re set for a large collection of books to plow through. On the book jacket it said J.D. Robb, a pseudonym for Nora Roberts, has written 150 books. I can’t even imagine that. She’s got to do it in her sleep!
Good story. Goes quickly. I was done in 2 days. Eat books.
