Lieutenant Eve Dallas puzzles over a bizarre suicide bombing in a Wall St. office building in Leverage in Death , the latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from J.D. Robb...

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD's Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter--but what was the motive of the masked men?

Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn't going to put the brakes on the merger. All it's accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.

Although it didn't lack for death and mayhem, it wasn't what I had expected. It dragged along and lacked 'something'. Wouldn't recommend it.

Another interesting and enjoyable Eve Dallas procedural, this time with a extraordinarily cruel set of perpetrators who rack up the body count solely in the name of greed. Dallas puts all her considerable home and work resources in play to solve the crime, just in the ni k of time to prevent another round of deaths.

This episode also wraps up the Nadine book-video storyline, for those who have been following it.

This is a very formulaic book, contains all the elements that made many of the previous tales good reading but absolutely no feeling or passion. Felt like it was written by a computer program. I think this character has run the course-even the sex scenes seem ho-hum. Go back to the first books, much-much better.

I picked this up last week at the Express Desk and after reading about 100 pages, I came to this site to see if there were any comments or feedback. There were none and yet people LOVE this series. So for the record, I read one more chapter after the "rat soup" exchange, which went on and on. I am returning the book, unfinished. This used to be one of the most innovative and exciting series on the market but now the books are just tedious. Nora Roberts, if you are reading this, stop writing these for a couple of years, get some fresh ideas, introduce some new characters, but please go back to "wowing" your audiences. And while I'm at it, the unending foul language is boring and ruins the novel. And enough with the Icove referrals (now that one was a terrific story).
