Vengeance in Death by J.D. Robb

Vengeance in Death - J.D. Robb

A madman is taunting Lieutenant Eve Dallas, providing riddles for her to solve and maybe save his next victim, all the while claiming he's doing God's work.

God's work that turns out to be nothing but revenge for something Eve's husband Roarke had done fifteen years ago...

Yet another gripping, intriguing and chilling mystery with a final twist that had me do a double-take.

Wonderful characters (although I must say I dislike Summerset with a passion), realistic relationships and interactions, a nicely twisted villain, and a mystery/suspense that delves deep into Roarke's past, providing some pretty intense scenes between the criminal-turned-entrepreneur and his cop wife. I loved the conflict between them, the struggle between loyalties...But in the end, we all (Summerset included) know just where those loyalties lie.

Gory, chilling, intense...Loved it.
