Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb

Salvation in Death (In Death, #27) - J.D. Robb

A priest drops dead in the middle of a funeral mass; COD: cyanide poisoning. Soon, it turns out, he wasn't really a priest, and while Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to figure out who the victim really was, the murderer strikes again. At another religious event, in front of even more people, but with the same murder weapon...

Who has it for men of the cloth (more or less) and why?

I found it rather hard to get into this book. Not because it was poorly written, quite the opposite in fact, but somehow it failed to really catch my attention...And my interest.

The truth behind the first body seemed a little far-fetched, the characters written especially for this story weren't that "appealing", I found the middle murder a little too misleading, and the entire investigation, the motive, and the one who pulled all the strings left me rather cold.

It was a solid, well-paced story with many twist and turns, yet nothing to really rave about.
