What is there to say that hasn’t been said countless times by JD Robb? She’s brilliant and Conspiracy in Death, the eight book in the In Death series is great!
Eve Dallas is simply the best at what she does. And others have started to take notice. When a fellow cop, Bowers the bitch starts hassling Eve on her turf, Eve has no choice but to defend herself. With a few heated words and early threats, things seem to be close to its boiling point rather than simmering down.
But despite the bad blood between Eve and Bowers, Dallas has more important things to do, like figure out why a sleeper was found dead under a bench with his heart removed. The Black Market is Eve’s first guess, but then she finds out that Snooks’ heart was already failing and he was going to die soon. So why would someone snatch a dying heart? It’s Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s job to find out!
Conspiracy in Death showcases Eve at some of her most vulnerable moments. In this book, she is stripped of her identity and it breaks her. I love the strong, kickass woman who takes no shit from anyone, but I also adore the fact that Eve has a softer, more gentler side to her as well. It’s her love and trust of Roarke that helps her overcome this and I loved reading every moment of it!
Plus, Roarke gets hotter and hotter in each book! And, as always, I present to you, your daily dose to Gandy Candy!
Snow scene anyone?

About J.D. Robb
With a phenomenal career full of bestsellers, Nora Roberts was ready for a new writing challenge. As her agent put it, like Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, and caffeine-free Pepsi, a pseudonym offered her the opportunity to reach a new and different group of readers. The first futuristic suspense J. D. Robb book, Naked in Death, was published in paperback in 1995, and readers were immediately drawn to Eve Dallas, a tough cop with a dark past, and her even more mysterious love interest, Roarke.
The series quickly gained attention, great reviews, and devoted readers. Since the debut of Loyalty in Death (the ninth In Death book) on Halloween 1999 on the New York Times bestseller list, every J. D. Robb title has been a New York Times bestseller. While fans had their suspicions, it wasn’t until the twelfth book in the series, Betrayal in Death (2001), that the publisher fully revealed that J. D. Robb was a pseudonym for bestselling powerhouse Nora Roberts. Unmasked, Nora Roberts fans who hadn’t yet picked up one of the Robb books were quickly playing catch-up.
Robb’s peers in the mystery world are fans as well, with accolades for the In Death series from such blockbuster authors as Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, Dennis Lehane, Kathy Reichs, Lisa Scottoline, Janet Evanovich, David Baldacci, Harlan Coben, Robert B. Parker, Ridley Pearson, Linda Fairstein, and Andrew Gross.
The In Death books are perpetual bestsellers, and frequently share the bestseller list with other Nora Roberts novels. J. D. Robb publishes two hardcover In Death books per year, with the occasional stand-alone original In Death story featured in an anthology.
Thirty books and fifteen years later, there is no end in sight for the ever-popular In Death series.
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
Yeah, Gandy is purrr….
And the snow scene is double purrr….
Now you know the reason why this book make me almost cry and desperate right? Poor Eve, but at last she’s though and have Roarke beside her (when I will have man like Roarke?? A never ending question)
BTW, love your new avi Ann!! =D
Yeah, it was a very sad one for Eve. And I totally understand.
I DID cry in this book but I know she’ll be okay because she has Roarke on her side.
Ren, I know right! Where can we find out own Roarke. Sigh.
You’re totally right, Tyraa. It takes a lot more damage than that to keep Eve Dallas down.
If you girls found out the answer to that question, I’d like to know too. ;P
LOVEEE the picture as roarke….hotness!
Me too, Maya 😀
