Conspiracy in Death Reviews

    Every book in the In Death series is a five star read for me but this one is something special. So much raw emotion - Eve and I blubbered through a large part of it! Roarke comes through as the world's number one guy being everything Eve needs exactly when she needs it. And then there are all of Eve's friends and colleagues standing up for her when she is down. This book brings together everything that is enjoyable in this series, a great story, effective police work, strong characters, a delightful romance, funny dialogue and many really emotional moments. Definitely one of my top favourites in one of my top favourite series!!!

    Aww, finally some answers as to why the delicious MY book-boyfriend, Roarke, loves Eve so much. "Can I watch while you hit him? You know how it excites me to see you pound on someone."....He knew there was nothing, nothing more arousing than the surrender of a strong woman, that melted-bone yielding of a tough body....."When we get home," he began as they walked down to street level, "you can... reprimand me.""Keep your mind off sex.""Why? It's so happy there."Oh, yeah. He likes strong women. I totally support his taste.We can produce another human inside of our bodies. That is one helluva superpower.The crime in this book has to do with illegal organ harvesting. Someone is stealing diseased organs from the homeless and the hookers. They needed those things! Unfortunately for Eve, the person or people responsible are willing to do anything to stop her investigation. She goes through the wringer with this one and it shows us another side to her and another side to her relationship with Roarke. And, although there were a little too many feelings in this book for me, I still really loved the new dimensions that they brought to the characters. It was definitely one of the best books of the series, so far.

    My only complaint about these books is that we don't get enough Eve and Roarke time. I know, I know she is bogged down in the investigations. Saying that, when they do get together, things are pretty steamy.The bodies are piling up. In her research Eve uncovers similar crimes in several cities that were dropped under mysterious circumstances, Dallas knows she's facing a killer cruel enough to prey on the weakest in society and powerful enough to conspire an extensive coverup. To complicate matters further, Dallas faces an equally troubling threat to her career when she's linked to the death of a fellow cop."Lieutenant." Ireland whispered, silky and romantic, in his voice. "An unexpected pleasure."Roarke. Not sure what to say. He seems perfect to me. His patience and love with Eve is wonderful and she is slowly thawing and realizing that she is worthy of his love and devotion."Was he wearing a tux?"Peabody had seen Roarke in a tux. The image of it was etched on her mind like acid on glass."Man" Peabody closed her eyes ... "Man." she repeated."You know a lot of women would get pissed off at having their husband star in their aide's purient little fantasies.""But you're bigger than that, Lieutenant. I like that about you."I love Eve but I love Peabody too. Great partnership they have."I never saw much snow as a boy.Dublin's for rain."But someone is not happy with Eve's progress with the investigations and she needs to be stopped.As she stood pale as death in the pale winter light, her eyes glazed, dark, and, he thought, impossibly young. The strength, the tough edge she wore as naturally as her weapon, was gone."What I have with you, darling Eve, I never thought to have with anyone. Never thought to want it or to need it."Time to decide if I will continue with this series or take a wee break. Decisions, decisions.

    Suspense 5 stars / Romance 4.5 starsDamn, it was intense! What could I add to my previous statement, that I love and admire Eve’s mind? This woman is Goddess! Romance. For the 1st time since starting this series, I liked Roarke. I could feel his love and devotion and I was deeply touched how he cared for his wife. Eve had one of the most painful experiences in her career. God, I can’t stop to admire this woman. She was strong even when she was broken. Respect!

    This is one of the best ones yet from this series. I was a mess reading this, I love Eve and to see her, not as the superwoman she always is but as a person was one of the finer points of reading this. Roarke was mag, as always.

    I love the In Death series but this story is special. You see Eve Dallas as never before. It's gut wrenching, emotional and embodies everything that sets this series apart. This is my #1 favorite of all the books.

    I am so annoyed with myself that I cannot seem to find the time to write a proper review for a book that I LOVED. I'm so disorganized and feel as though all I am doing is chasing my tail. UGHHHThis series continues to be amazing. The characters grow and change in ways I hadn't expected which only makes the story telling that much better. In this one it was things that happened to Eve that broke my heart. And as much as Roarke has that magic touch, those perfect words, it wasn't something that he could fix for her. ❤ Roarke❤ Eve❤ Peabody❤ McNab❤ Feeney❤ Mira❤ Galahad

    A very emotional installment to the series.Eve tries to act all tough but her opponent this time is a cunning one and manages to almost bring her to her knees. It is amazing how after just one year with Roarke, she changed so much that depending upon him isn't such a burden for her any more. And depend she does. All her friends gather around her in a big hug to support her and keep her spirit up.I love how this series's getting better and better with every new story. And maybe the mysteries aren't all great every time-even though this one was very complicated and had me guessing till the end-the characters and excellent writing make up for it.

    Sorry fans of the In Death series. After more than a handful, the stories become somewhat repetitive and predictable. J.D. Robb's Conspiracy in Death is still an entertaining read. But I can't imagine myself reading 40-plus books with these same characters and revolving around its basic formula. 3 stars.

    This is the 8th in the In Death series.It is early winter right after the New Year 2059 and Eve is called to the murder scene of a sidewalk sleeper. Wondering why "homicide lite" simply doesn't handle the case, Eve quickly learns the reason why. The old homeless man who was murdered had his heart neatly, surgically removed. At the crime scene Eve bumps heads with a troublemaker cop who has been jealous of Eve since the academy days when Eve, even then, was a star on the fast track.In the course of the investigation Eve finds other indigents whose organs have been neatly harvested. Deciding that only an experienced surgeon could have the magic hands to do such work, Eve begins to shake up the medical community. In the meantime, the jealous cop starts spewing hate at Eve and files complaints managing to get Eve suspended. Working outside the system, Eve still manages to close the case.This is one of my very favorite of the series strongly because of the middle part of the book when Eve gets suspended. In the previous 7 books, Robb has painstakingly drawn a portrait of Eve as a cop. It isn't just what she does, it is what she is. Her identity is so tangled up with her shield and her gun it begs the question what happens to Eve if she loses them?The scenes/chapters following Eve's loss of her badge are quite heart wrenching. It is so sad to see such a kick ass character like Eve brought so low and made to feel so lost. She even apologizes to Summerset instead of engaging him in one of their normal nasty biting arguments. This course of events horrifies the butler so much he's beside himself.Roarke is, as usual, swoon worthy. First as a concerned spouse and then as the person who kicks her in the ass and tells her to stop feeling sorry for herself. Also, he is so ready to go and beat up people on her behalf just because they made her cry, that I kinda wished Robb had put a scene in there where Roarke and his army of lawyers go and scare the beejeesus out of the brass of the NYPSD.Other reasons why I love this installment:1) Trueheart! We are introduced to another new recurring character, the sweet, innocent rookie Troy Trueheart. In later books he also becomes a member of Eve's inner circle.2) Peabody and Charles the LC are dating. Charles has been in several previous books mainly as a witness, but now he is playing a more social role. I picture him looking like George Clooney.3)We see more of Baxter, the womanizing, fun loving cop who is smarter than he seems. Too bad Baxter was the only one Roarke could take his frustrations out on. I picture baxter looking like Alec Baldwin.4) Introduction of Webster, the IAB cop who has long had a thing for Eve. He shows up in later books as well.5) Introduction of Louise Dimatto, she also shows up in several later books as well.

    This one kicked me right in the teeth. I am so invested in these characters, and this was the book that almost broke Eve, and the way that is written? Holy. Just holy mother of gut punchers. Every character comes to bat in this one for Eve and that alone had me squeezing the life out of the book. And then you have Roarke and you have his relationship with Eve and the combination of what he's thinking up against what he knows he has to do for her? This has to be one of the most interesting and developed love stories in modern romance right now. It's just...I'm never bored. Do you get that? I have yet to be bored. The mystery in this one is so intense. Here we have conspiracy and cover up. We've got possible dirty cops and dirty politicians and we've got cops retiring early and we've got doctors with miraculous hands doing bad things. And then there's a certain police officer gunning for Eve. The hysteria and the media over secrets and lies. This book never stopped. Things kept unraveling and happening plot-wise just as characters are breaking and changing and putting themselves on the line for each other. Even Summerset cared. Books like this coming up 8 books into a series makes me realize just how possible it is to continue to tell a story this well.

    The twist here is that it's not Roarke who's a potential suspect like it's been in almost all the other books, it's EVE. I actually liked that part. Though I'm no longer surprised when Roarke owns literally everything. I dunno, I may take a break from this series though. It's not the most dynamic for me right now.

    Posted atUnder the Covers What is there to say that hasn’t been said countless times by JD Robb? She’s brilliant and Conspiracy in Death, the eight book in the In Death series is great!Eve Dallas is simply the best at what she does. And others have started to take notice. When a fellow cop, Bowers the bitch starts hassling Eve on her turf, Eve has no choice but to defend herself. With a few heated words and early threats, things seem to be close to its boiling point rather than simmering down.But despite the bad blood between Eve and Bowers, Dallas has more important things to do, like figure out why a sleeper was found dead under a bench with his heart removed. The Black Market is Eve’s first guess, but then she finds out that Snooks’ heart was already failing and he was going to die soon. So why would someone snatch a dying heart? It’s Lieutenant Eve Dallas’s job to find out!Conspiracy in Death showcases Eve at some of her most vulnerable moments. In this book, she is stripped of her identity and it breaks her. I love the strong, kickass woman who takes no shit from anyone, but I also adore the fact that Eve has a softer, more gentler side to her as well. It’s her love and trust of Roarke that helps her overcome this and I loved reading every moment of it!Plus, Roarke gets hotter and hotter in each book! And, as always, I present to you, your daily dose to Gandy Candy!

    Number eight in J D Robb's In Death series and they keep getting better and better!In this episode Eve uncovers a killer bumping of street people and collecting body parts. Just as she is hot on the trail of a major conspiracy she is implicated in a crime and taken off the case. Not that that has ever stopped Eve or her trusty sidekick, hunky billionaire husband Roarke. As usual lots of action, hot sex and some humour in the interactions between Eve and Roarke's butler Somerset as well as the delightful Peabody and McNab the detective who lusts after her. Eve is also starting to recover some of her painful early childhood memories and learning to face up to them.

    Read May 28, 2014Well I have to say there was a lot going on in this book. There were times that you just held your breathe because you couldn't believe what was going to happen but then as you read on an the intensity grows and you have to continue because you want to know who and why. As always Roarke, the great husband that he is, always there to protect and comfort Eve through everything and then there is her friends who don't give up and make sure that the truth comes out.Re-read Nov. 16, 2016

    I really, really like this book - right up there as one of my favourites!When doctors play God!We meet Troy Trueheart (what a cutie) and Louise Dimatto - love those characters. Nothing too wonky about the book except the time frame for Louise getting injured - I can overlook that.Two thumbs up - great read!

    4.5 stars. Another thoroughly amazing, kickass story in this universe of characters that I love. Gah, every single one of them. Pretty sure I say that every time but it doesn't make it any less true.This one was tough to read because here, Eve was hurt in a way that nothing else has managed to do. I was so freaking pissed off at "procedure" *though I understood it* but I loved seeing the way the family that Eve has made for herself stood up for her and supported her. It was everything I could have wanted for her in a situation that was otherwise untenable. Eve is always harder on herself than anyone else *like that brutal testing* but she never quits on her case, or on anyone who counts on her. No matter what. And Roarke. *swoon* I never get tired of the way he loves Eve and it's always shot to the heart when it hits her with what Roarke means to her. I love how even though Roarke worries about Eve, he never tries to stop her from doing what she needs to, from being who & what she is. Together, they're everything. Fierce, protective, tender, funny, snarky, dangerous and so damn hot! The plot was engaging, the action fast and hard. The bad guy was a little harder to pin down because things were coming from all sides but as usual, the good guys win in the end. And it never gets old. The only thing that would have made the end better for me? (view spoiler)[If I'd gotten a look at Summerset's reaction to both Eve and Roarke coming home with ruined coats, LOL! (hide spoiler)] I look forward to the next one!

    The In Death series is remarkable for the originality of it's plots, the remarkable view of the future, the kickass heroine and the most devastating hero of all time. I read these books just for Roarke. He is truly the top of the mountain when it comes to fiction heroes. He is everything a fantasy should be, and more.This time around, Eve draws the homicide of a street sleeper who has had his heart surgically removed. His status as one of the dregs of society just doesn't matter to Eve. He was murdered and Eve is going to find out why and who and put them away. Period. Then she discovers that there are other similar cases that have been improperly handled. She is placing her live and her career in danger as she pursues this killer.Our killer has means and access and sets up Eve so she is placed on suspension, which devastates her as nothing else could. Roarke is there to pick up the pieces and then to kick her butt. Then, he acts as her partner as together they solve these murders.

    It looks like this series can't get less than 5 stars from me. It was interesting reading Eve reactions about events in this book. Also relationshio between her and Roake. I love watching them married and doing stuf all married couples do. Well, maybe not all couple but they are becoming more and more lovely with every book.

    We have a killer who has a God complex, high level of medical knowledge and surgical skill. Let the who done it begin.I cried in this installment. I just felt bad for Eve and what she had to go through for awhile. Thank God for her friends and of course, Roarke for his unwavering love and support. I may sound like a broken record but who cares? Roarke is a perfect male speciman. Yum

    Wow. Just wow. This is one of my favorite books in the series to date. It was, quite simply, fabulous. Whether you've read one book in the series or eight, you know one simple fact. Eve is a cop. It's everything to her. Her role as a police officer is tangled up with her identity as a person. Her self worth, her purpose in life, is all tied into her job. In this book that is taken away and it breaks her. She is not the tough as nails cop that we have seen before. She gains a fragility and vulnerability that cracks her open for Roarke and the reader. We get a raw look at how she views herself and what being a cop means to her. It was as wonderful as it was devastating.Roarke takes a backseat through much of the beginning sections of the book, but as soon as Eve's world starts to crumble we got a heavy focus on them together. We've seen their love for each other before, but in this book it shines especially bright. With her world shaken, her feelings for Roarke are painfully open. She leans on him and he never falters. He's also not afraid to kick her in the ass when she needs it. The ups and downs in life will either make you or break you and this experience seems to have made their connection even stronger. I've always loved them together, but I think this experience has really solidified their relationship.The case was pretty interesting. I liked seeing something focused on that is so common in today's world. It was interesting to see how organ transplants have changed in Eve's time and how society regards them. It was nice seeing all of Eve's core circle subtly tied into the plot, and it seems as though we might have a few more future characters. Maybe we'll see Louise Dimatto and Officer Troy Trueheart again? I have always loved Eve's relationship with Feeney, but he impressed me anew here. The speech he gave her and his threats to kick her ass made me grin from ear to ear. It's wonderful to see the loyalty and love that Eve is surrounded by. I was also pleased to hear Feeney mention Jamie. I've been hoping we'd hear about him again.Although I was happy with everything in the book, I was secretly hoping that Eve wouldn't accept her badge back right away. Procedure or no procedure, I was still pissed. She should have let them sweat and grovel.

    I know I've been rating all the books in this series pretty high, but so far, for me at least, they've deserved it.And this one was one of the best.My heart broke for Eve in this story. So very much of who she is as a person is wrapped up in being a cop, and when that's taken away, it all but breaks her. Seeing her so fragile and brought so low was a difficult thing, but it made it all the more satisfying when she made it through the sadness and moved onto anger and resolve to solve her case no matter what.And right there with her you had Roarke. Steadfast, supportive, yet still ready to give her the kick in the ass she needed to get her out of her funk and stir that motivation to fight back.I also loved seeing the way Eve's friends rallied behind her while all this was going on as well.So far this series shows no signs of slowing down for me. Hopefully that continues to be the case.

    Conspiracy in Death by J.D.Robb is the 8th book in the In Death series. Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates several deaths caused by skillful removal of organs leading her to high ranking surgeons and politicians. Another fantastic book in the series. It especially demonstrates the support and love that Eve receives from her friends and colleagues and especially Rourke when she becomes suspect in another cops death.

    What can I say? For the longest time I listed Conspiracy as my favorite book. Louise Dimatto becomes entrenched in the series, all the angst I can handle with Eve losing her badge, and Mira weeping at the fashion show. Re-reading it for the fifth or sixth time it does seem to drag in parts. Still a great read and a terrific final scene.

    In every series about a cop, it seems inevitable that in at least one book, the cop will be suspended on suspicion of murder and/or other crimes. This, book #8, is Eve's apparent Waterloo.She is first called in to investigate the murder of a homeless man whose heart has been very neatly and professionally removed from his body. She quickly suspects the involvement of one or more doctors.At the same time, Officer Bowers, the cop who first found the body begins to harass Eve and file complaints against her. A droid comes after Eve with threats against her and Roarke if she doesn't stop the investigation, then the droid self-destructs. Then Officer Bowers is murdered.Although no one on Eve's team nor her superiors believe she has done anything wrong, she is suspended pending the investigation. And without her badge, Eve Dallas feels she is no one. Nothing. A non-entity.She is so depressed that she actually APOLOGIZES to Summerset! 'Summerset watched her a moment, his lips tight, his eyes dark with worry. Deliberately, he fixed his most arrogant expression on his face and slipped into the foyer. “You’re filthy and wet.” He sniffed derisively. “And you’re tracking water all over the floor. You might show a bit of respect for your own home.” He waited for the flash of temper, the cold flare of her eyes, and felt the heart she didn’t know he had squeeze when she simply stared at him. “Sorry.” She looked down blankly at her feet. “I didn’t think.”'One of the best books in the series so far!
