Waiting on Wednesday: Treachery in Death


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I love, love, LOVE the In Death series. Eve and Roarke have kept me captivated for 39 stories (including novellas), and I expect nothing less than pure entertainment from Treachery in Death.

Note: Reading order and release date information for J.D. Robb’s books can be found HERE on Wit and Sin

Treachery in Death Cover Title: Treachery in Death
Author: J.D. Robb
Series: In Death, Book 40
Genre: Mystery
Publisher: Putnam
Release Date: 22 February 2011

Book Description (from amazon.com):

Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime-an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody's first case as primary detective-good thing she learned from the master.

But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she's all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and-while hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound-she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn't take long to realize they're both crooked-guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve, and Eve's husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to bring the dirty cops down-knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

I want to fall in love with that series again. But Promises annoyed me so much I didn't even finish it. :(

Fun book! I've never read JD Robb but my parents like his/her books.

Good choice. I haven't read any JD Robb in a while, maybe I'll give this one a go. Drop by my blog and see what I've listed this week.
