Innocent In Death: 24 Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
His heart began to thud, his throat to close. He tried to pull his body from the pool. 'I'll help you', his killer said. He felt no pain.
A young teacher sips a hot chocolate, blissfully unaware that his first taste condemns him to an agonising death. The community around him is devastated and suspiciously protective of their own.
No one is better equipped to see through the lies than homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas, but she is distracted by the arrival of her husband Roarke's ex-lover, an impossibly glamorous vixen, determined to steal Roarke back.
But Eve's personal life must wait when a second murder victim is found, and everyone's eyes turn to the perfect school at the heart of it all. Its secret will soon be out . . .

For all that the element of this particular killer in this book is unbelievable, this is one of my favourites due to the appearance of Magdalena, an old and special flame of Roark’s.
The hiccup this puts in Eve and Roark’s relationship is truly one of my favourite reads. Even Summerset has a say. The ending especially has Eve’s particular brand of finesse to it.
The deaths of both Foster and Trevor are terribly sad.
I own every book in this series and I love rereading them, it is my go to for some relaxation.

If you've been following my blog over the last few months you'll know I've been devouring this series and I can't get enough of Eve and Roarke as a couple so it was horrible to see them going through a rough patch in this book. But at the same time I really appreciate that J.D. Robb is still managing to make their relationship fresh and interesting 24 books into a long running series. Roarke can sometimes be too good to be true so it was nice to see him make a mistake for a change even though it left me wanting to smack some sense into him. I was so angry at him for hurting Eve but at the same time I could see why he was annoyed that she didn't seem to trust him. I never doubted them as a couple though, it's obvious they're both crazy about each other and that nobody is ever going to be able to come between them no matter how hard they try.
I have to give a shoutout to Summerset in this review too because there were some fantastic scenes between him and Eve this time around. I love the antagonistic relationship they usually have but I also really like the way that when the chips are down they can actually be quite sweet to each other. I don't want to say too much about the murder in this case but I will say I was shocked and pretty horrified at who the killer was and their motives. This was definitely a surprising case that nearly got past Eve, luckily she got her head back into the game in time to solve the mystery though.
