Innocent in Death product reviews

The phenomenal series set in a future New York City returns as NYPSD Lt. Eve Dallas hunts for the killer of a seemingly ordinary history teacher - and uncovers some extraordinary surprises.

Craig Foster's death devastated his young wife, who'd sent him to work that day with a lovingly packed lunch. It shocked his colleagues at the private school, too, and as for the ten-year-old girls who found him in his classroom in a pool of bodily fluids - they may have been traumatized for life. Eve soon determines that Foster's homemade lunch was tainted with deadly ricin, and that Mr. Foster's colleagues have some startling secrets of their own.

It's Eve's job to sort it out - and discover why someone would have done this to a man who seemed so inoffensive, so pleasant... so innocent. Now Magdalena Percell... there's someone Eve can picture as a murder victim. Possibly at Eve's own hands. The slinky blonde - an old flame of her billionaire husband, Roarke - has arrived in New York, and she's anything but innocent.

Roarke seems blind to Magdalena's manipulation, and he insists that the occasional lunch or business meeting with her is nothing to worry about... and none of Eve's business. Eve's so unnerved by the situation that she finds it hard to focus on her case. Still, she'll have to put aside her feelings, for a while at least-because another man has just turned up dead.

Eve knows all too well that innocence can be a facade. Keeping that in mind may help her solve this case at last. But it may also tear apart her marriage

A teacher has turned up dead, discovered by two of his students, who it is now believed sill be scarred for life. We then have another body and of course secrets come to life, but the killer isn't who you may expect it to be. While Eve is trying to solve this case, an old lover of Roarke's comes into town, determined to create havoc in the couples life.

This is up in my top five books for this series as it packs quite a bit into it. On the one hand we have the tension between Eve and Roarke and Eve's fear that Roarke may begin to regret what they have, and on the other side we have the murders occurring and a very tricky case to build so that they can catch the killer.

It was nice to have a very vulnerable Eve, she loves Roarke so much and has come to need him more than she ever needed anyone that to have this woman turn up, reminding Roarke of their past, that it cuts at her and fills her with fear.

I really do enjoy this book, it was wonderfully written and one of the best in the series in my opinion.
