Review - New York to Dallas

New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb is the 33rd book in the “In Death” mystery series. Publisher: Putnam, September 2011

#1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying new case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas, one that will take her all the way to the city that gave her her name—and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood.

When a monster named Isaac McQueen—who was taken down by Eve back in her uniform days—escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.

This book is great! Once I read that first line, this book stayed in my hands, quickly turning the pages until that final sentence was read. Such an intense story that I was pulling for Eve to get through this keeping her faith in herself as well as her friends and especially Roarke. The best part is when Eve saw the partner, I knew who it was and boy was that great watching Eve’s emotions played out on the pages. After more than thirty-three books, J.D. Robb keeps me coming back for more and more of this suspenseful and thrilling series.



  1. I'm not a big fan of books set in the future, but this series has captured me. I'm not caught up yet, but I'm getting there. Good to know it's still enjoyable this far in.

  2. Mare, neither am I a fan of futuristic books, but the J.D. Robb books just captivated me with the first book in the series.
