Rated 5 out of 5 by from Action After reading all the newer books and hearing about the infamous Icove case I am happy to see it lived up to the hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origin in Death WOW!!! Talk about excitement to the end! Something like a cross between Boys from Brazil -the Andromena Strain,meets Dr No! Very interesting concept. Freaky and chilling sci-fi touch. More so as it may not be all that far retched as we would like to think. Really enjoyed this one!,,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best so far Dr. Wifred Icove is found dead in his office. Who would have possibly wanted him dead? He was Dr. Perfect. He and his son ran a very successful cosmetic and reconstructive surgery practice. Everybody loved him. Eve Dallas, police lieutenant in the year 2059 believes everything is a bit too perfect. No one is a saint. This looks like a professional hit but who would have wanted the good doctor dead? Dalllas starts out with her dogged persistence and wonderful gut instinct and follows through until she nails the killer. I loved this book the best so far. The subject matter is very creepy and the reader is pulled down into the 'what if' scenerario which makes for some interesting hypotheses. As always Robb brings these characters to life and more than a mystery the repartee is just fun to read

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Puts the SF back into the "In Death" series By now, the "in Death" books have me hooked as much for the support characters than anything else - do I really care about the mysteries? Not really - though sometimes they are quite good. It's more that I want to see Peabody (Dallas' able and affable partner), Roarke (her shady past uber-billionaire husband), Mavis (preggo vid-star sensation of scandalous outfit), and Nadine (journalist extraordinaire). Many other characters also nab your attention and bring you back, and the pacing of the novels (often only a month or so passes between each book) means that their lives are evolving without the jump-ahead-two-years effect that many series have. In "Origin in Death," J.D. Robb did what I hadn't seen her do in many of her books - she included the SF element quite strongly in the plot. There are nods to some contemporary ethical issues - when someone seems to be bumping off a plastic surgeon and his family, the motives are confused. But was the surgeon the head of a designer baby project? At what point does medical science cross the line between stopping disease and playing God? And who would kill over it? I think I enjoyed this "in Death" book the most. High literature? Definitely not - but this time, I could happily call it Science Fiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from origin I was a little suprised with the negative reviews with this book. I thought it was a nice little change. It did seem to lack a little further progress relationship wise, but had a very different murder theme. I enjoyed this book like all the others.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mary A Overall I enjoyed the book but would not rank it among my top favourites of the series. Although all the stories are set in the future, they usually have police procedural themes. This story is more science fiction especially the end scenes which could have been from the Matrix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Origin In Death I thought the book was a little slower paced than the others in the series (I have read them a few times) and the relationship between Eve, Roarke and Summerset a little downplayed. The relationship with Peabody is developing more and more. It was a good book with a surprise ending. Not the usual ending for this series of books. I have enjoyed all of them and look forward to more. I will be interested to see what happens when it is time for Mavis to have her baby. That should almost be half a book by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Origin in death I think Eve is growing and learning about having a family. I'm wondering if Eve will become pegnant one day and how would she cope with it. I also did like the Survivor in Death serious , give me a chance to see Eve reacts to children one on one(I hope the little girl comes back to visit Eve , Roarke and Summerset.. but overall the series are very good. I hope there will be a television serious to the books in the near future, I think Olivia for Law and Order could play the role as Eve, not sure who will be Roarke.. got to be drop dead gorgeous. I'll keep on reading Thnx Nora .. aka J.D.Robb

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good, not the best, but good Origin in Death was a good read. JDR is staying away from the serial killers we were plagued with in earlier books, which added to this book's appeal. While I thought that the mystery was good (and downright creepy at the end!), I was disappointed in the lack of quality Eve and Roarke moments. In earlier books their relationship was more heated, exciting and unpredictable. Earlier books were filled with arguments, passion and new discoveries about their characters. Now that they've been married 1.5 years, in Origin Eve and Roarke are very comfortable with each other and understanding of one another. If you're an In Death series fan, you'll love catching up with the gang. If you're new to the series, it's a good book, but the one to start with (what with the futuristic jargon and countless characters). But all in all, good book and looking forward to the next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from explosive It is the year 2059, everything we know today is changed drastically. Eve gathers crime-fighting crew around her including the sauve Roarke. What happens next is explosive and brilliant. Black Rose/Nora Roberts,Fire In The Ice/Katlyn Stewart
