Robb In Death series getting its 50th bookBy David Canfield May 13, 2019 One of America’s most popular novelists, Nora Roberts is celebrating a milestone for a series that isn’t even penned under her real name. In Death, the futuristic detective novels she pens under the pseudonym J.D. Robb, have been in print for nearly a quarter-century now. And next February, her fiftieth book in the series, Golden in Death, will hit the shelves. That’s a pretty remarkable run.In Death began with the 1995 novel Naked in Death; set in 2058, it introduced tough, damaged cop Eve Dallas and her mysterious love interest, Roarke. “Initially, I planned the In Death series as a trilogy set in the near future — in 1994, 2058 seemed pretty far off — with a dark, damaged female homicide cop at its center,” Roberts tells EW. “Eve Dallas, the negative to every main character I’d ever written until that point, needed a world that fit her single-minded purpose. Roarke, a self-made, charming Irishman — and former thief — who basically owned the world, walked on to the page as the perfect contrast to Eve and her solitary life.”Of course, the series developed into much more of a trilogy. “The trilogy gave me the opportunity to explore their burgeoning relationship beyond a single book, and for the characters to evolve as individuals,” Roberts continues. “By the time the third book went to press, I didn’t want to let go, to say goodbye to these people or their world. When my publisher expressed an interest in more, I jumped at the chance.” Roberts was at last revealed as the woman behind J.D. Robb in 2001, six years after the books emerged as a New York Times best-selling powerhouse.Next year, book 50 will be published. It’s called Golden in Death, and finds homicide detective Eve Dallas investigating a murder with a mysterious motive ― and a terrifying weapon. “It’s been 25 years, and yet I’m still challenged and entertained every time I slip back into Eve Dallas’ world,” Roberts reflects. “As a writer who looks forward, it’s only on milestones like this that I sit and marvel at the run.”Finally, she concludes: “Then I imagine another murder in 2061, tap Eve’s shoulder and we’re off again.”https://ew.com/author-interviews/2019...

    4.25 starsAnother strong entry in the In Death series. After 50 books, the author keeps the series fresh and interesting. Eve Dallas’ investigative skills are in top form as this new case twists and turns. Probably the only book/series I’d read that takes place in the future as it simply works and doesn’t seem far fetched. The method used to cause the deaths in this installment was very creative and the way the case unfolds and the mystery is solved was well done. Fans of the series will love 4.25 starsAnother strong entry in the In Death series. After 50 books, the author keeps the series fresh and interesting.

    JD Robb’s words are so familiar to me that her books, her voice, has a form of cadence to them. Her books read smooth and precise that at times I forget that I’m even reading. It has become such a pleasure to read these books and visit with characters that have become so familiar to me. With each book, I become more attached to the In Death universe that I can’t see me not reading them. In this 50th installment, we continue to follow kick-ass cop Eve Dallas and company as she solves yet another JD Robb’s words are so familiar to me that her books, her voice, has a form of cadence to them.

With each book, I become more attached to the In Death universe that I can’t see me not reading them. In this 50th installment, we continue to follow kick-ass cop Eve Dallas and company as she solves yet another tough case. With golden eggs, toxins, murder and sexy scenes JD Robb continues to produce beautiful work.Lieutenant Dallas and Detective Peabody are looking for a killer who uses toxins hidden in a golden egg. As Dallas and Peabody investigate the case, they encounter unlikable characters and memorable ones. What I love about this book is that I get to follow every lead and dead-end alongside the homicide duo and other regular characters. This one is particularly refreshing as we see Dallas finally accept that Roarke is part of her process and that with his help, her work has become a little bit easier. She still kicks ass and takes no BS, she just does it more efficiently.In this book, we see a few beloved characters and Eve’s interactions with them. When one of my favorite characters makes an appearance, I appreciate the book even more. This one had me laughing out loud at Eve’s literal sense, and it also had me in tears with her beautiful heart and compassion. An absolute gem.

    Golden in Death by J.D. Robb is the 50th book in the futuristic In Death series featuring bad-ass Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her incredibly unique investigative skills. As with all of Robb’s In Death books, it’s not hard to fall in love with the cast of main characters. They are a bit like family and I love them just as they are; the good, the bad, and a little bit snarky. Golden in Death begins with Lt. Eve Dallas and Detective Peabody investigating a case in which a toxin filled golden egg is Golden in Death by J.D. Robb is the 50th book in the futuristic In Death series featuring bad-ass Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her incredibly unique investigative skills. As with all of Robb’s In Death books, it’s not hard to fall in love with the cast of main characters. They are a bit like family and I love them just as they are; the good, the bad, and a little bit snarky. Golden in Death begins with Lt. Eve Dallas and Detective Peabody investigating a case in which a toxin filled golden egg is delivered to a well-loved physician and trying to figure out why he was targeted. There are red-herrings and dead ends but the team is dogged and determined to get to the bottom of the mysterious deaths. Of course, tech guru Rourke makes his appearances to offer aid to Eve and Peabody in the case. Eve and Rourke’s personal relationship is just as sweet as ever with Eve seeming to accept that she needs him more than she wants to admit and she is all the better for it. The side characters are entertaining and the big bad was a surprise. Twists, turns, and a fast-moving plot made Golden in Death an extraordinary read and as with all of Robb’s books, I had a hard time putting it down. This a fantastic book for any fan of the series, J.D. Robb, or the suspense/mystery/thriller genre! A big thank you to Macmillan for the gifted copy of GOLDEN IN DEATH by J.D. Robb in exchange for an honest review!

    As the 50th book in this series, I expected just a tad more than I got. Although it was a thoroughly enjoyable read, It was relatively slow going with much of the book taken up by the first murder and not enough time is given to the next poisoning.The evil character's really shone in this book, and I would have liked to have seen Eve and Delia spend more time on them.I felt that this novel was more of a character-driven read than an action-driven one, but that was okay as I was able to learn a As the 50th book in this series, I expected just a tad more than I got.

    I love this series, and I've read most, if not all, of these books. I have to say that I love the characters and this story line. However, I found that it was slower than most of her other books in this series and didn't get really hooked til closer to the end. I guess I was expecting something extra special for the 50th. It was still a good book though.
