Thankless In Death

by J. D. Robb

Berkley | March 4, 2014 | Mass Market Paperbound

Thankless In Death is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water…

Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for, especially Roarke’s big Irish family, which is a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples aren’t as lucky. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

Turns out that twenty-six-year-old Jerry is not only capable of brutality but has taking a liking to it. With the money he’s stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerry’s going to strike next.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A SERIES THAT MANAGES TO STAY STRONG Eve Dallas summarizes it best when she says, “That’s just the whole thing, isn’t it? He just keeps catching the breaks. We know who he is, we know he killed every one of them, when he did it, we even know why. We have a reasonable list of possible targets. We believe we know his general area. And we can’t find the S** of a B****.” Let’s face it, when a series has reached book #37, the reader pretty much has the format down pat, so the author has to keep the plotline interesting enough, the character relationships moving forward enough, and the writing crisp enough to keep the pages turning in this book and the next, and the next, etc. Ms. Robb manages to do that with this series. Yes, there have been a few bumps and groans along the way but this book redeems those. It’s Eve and Rourke and the heart of Eve’s NYSPD team going after one killer. There are no “end of days” terrorists; there are no mad scientists or Hollywood glitz, simply one (admittedly pretty nasty) bad guy and a string of bodies. Thankless in Death is reminiscent of her early books. She even had me misty eyed a couple of times during this read. Ms. Robb does many things really right with this series; she keeps the characters moving forward, she does not bog down the book with long explanations of what happened in previous books – constant readers (like me) appreciate this and, although the book makes sense for first time readers there are enough references to the past to make constant readers smile and give new readers a reason to go back to the first book. ** Slight spoiler alert ** I’d like to send out a huge thanks to Ms. Robb for not killing the dog!
