Good entry in the Eve Dallas series. I did guess the second killer early on, don't know why. I had trouble putting the book down to do other things so a suspenseful read. ( )

I want to thank the publisher for rewarding me with an ARC of this book.

Eve Dallas is called to a crime scene on a construction site in New York. A homeless woman is found dead in a dumpster. While Eve is still attending the scene, another body is found a few blocks away walled in the bottom of a building recently purchased and renovated by Roarke. The body was nothing more than bones but also contained the bones of a fetus. Eve takes on both cases with the one involving the homeless woman taking precedence. The investigation takes Eve and her team to a local plumber who is found hanging in what looks like a suicide, but it is quickly determined to be another murder.

Forgotten In Death is another good entry in the In Death series. This book has almost too much in it due to the number of bodies and suspects that must be investigated, causing the need for lots of exposition, which unfortunately isn't balanced with the amount of action. In addition, Eve and Roarke are again confronted with their childhood abuse, bringing back unwanted memories, however the emotional impact on them is minimal compared to previous experiences, and it also spurs them on during the investigation. We are again rewarded with glimpses into the private life of the two characters, but with so much plot in this story, there really isn't much time to include more than just a few peeks into their private lives. Overall, Forgotten in Death is a multi-layered story that leaves the reader with a satisfying conclusion. ( )

The first book in this series was in reader’s hands in 1995...so we are still here 26 years later following the lives of Eve, Roark, Peabody,, McNab and all those other wonderful familiar characters that make this one of the top series in the entire country. You would think that J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) would run out of ideas and bad guys for our Eve to find and arrest. Set 40 years into the future...we, in 2021 can with a doubt be assured that Eve & Peabody has surely got them all either behind bars or “off planet” when we get there. I really think that I could handle drinking soda out of a tube and I want one of those Auto Chef coffee dispensers. Back to Eve’s case (s) ...we actually have two and the thing that seems to disturb Eve the most is the cruelty of the killings. An elderly victim is disposed of in a dumpster and a woman and her fetus is found sealed in a wall... and that murder is proved to have happen 40 years in the past...our time. Eve sets a fast pace finding the killer with her usual skill and ferocity. I have always found the interview scenes between Eve and the suspects are some of the best parts of all the stories. You better believe that no one will be “Forgotten In Death” on Eve’s watch. Another great addition. Keep them coming, Ms. Robb! ( )

The last few books in this series felt a little phoned in. The characters were still endearing but the mysteries were meh. This installment turns that around in a big way. Mavis, Trina and other minor characters are mentioned but do not appear, or only briefly. Even other cops, like McNab, are kept in the background. This allowed for a laser focus on Eve and Peabody (and Roarke) investigating two murders.

The first is of a homeless woman on a constructions site. While still on scene, Eve is called to another construction site of Roarke's only blocks away where the skeletal remains of a pregnant woman were concealed in a wine cellar. Two cases, nearly 40 years apart but linked by one family will push Eve and her forensics team to the limit (and honestly, well beyond believable science but, hey, the "future" ;).

This entey reminded me why I loved this series - great characters and simple, enjoyable mysteries. ( )
