"Promises in Death" by JD Robb

"Promises in Death" by JD Robb
2009, GP Putnam's Sons
ISBN: 978-0-399-15548-2

Dallas, Lt Eve. It doesn’t take long until you are understanding cop speak in the year 2060….way into the future where cars go straight up when you want to get somewhere quickly.

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.
Morris, who is the chief medical officer was Amaryllis Coltraine’s sweetheart and he is a friend of Eve’s. To help him handle the grieving Eve invites him to help solve the mystery and put Amaryllis’ killer behind bars. In fact, for a woman who doesn’t mingle well and who doesn’t feel comfortable with lots of people she has a great number of them to help her with solving this crime.

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.
