When the autopsies of three suspicious suicides reveal small burns on the brains of the victims, Eve's investigation turns to the provocative world of virtual reality games--where the same techniques used to create joy and desire could also prompt the mind to become the weapon of its own destruction. J.D. Robb is the pseudonym of author Nora Roberts.
I’m writing this review the same day as I finished Rapture In Death, but already my thoughts are clouded by the next book.
See… What had happened was… I finished Rapture In Death when I was driving and still about 15 minutes from home. Well, it has the sneak peek of the next book on it, which was about the perfect amount of time for me to finish my drive home. But by time I got home, I could either be responsible and do my cleaning (while listening of course) or write my review. Nothing like a good audiobook to make you finally get into cleaning!
Anyway – it’s the end of the day, I’m writing the review, but I am already 50% into the next book. So while Rapture in Death is fresh, it’s not as fresh as it should be. I think the bottom line is that I love these books and am addicted to the series, obviously. The characters are great and complex.
As for unique things about Rapture in Death – I had one disappointment… Hence 4 stars not 5. I solved the mystery WAY before Eve. Easily. That’s the first time this has happened. I do think we got hints she didn’t – I’d need to reread to be sure I’m right about that, though. It didn’t make it bad, obviously – still great to see Eve put the pieces together – just bit as wowing when you’ve figured it out.
There was also a little hint of who Rourke used to be, and it kind of reconfirmed my initial thoughts that he COULD be bad news. He just chooses to be awesome. Which he continues to be for Eve, and they’re newlyweds now, so there’s that fun sexiness happening 🙂
All in all, another great one in this series and I’m not really sure when I’ll take a breather… I want to read other things but I don’t want to stop either!
Note: I read and wrote this review November 15, 2015!
