Series: In Death #10
Published by Piatkus Books
My favourite cop and her hunky husband Roarke go out to attend a play. Undoubtedly enjoying the fact that Roarke owns the theatre, Eve feels like she can finally relax a bit.
But when someone takes the death of a character into literal means and stabs the superstar of the show, Darco dies with a single stab through the heart.
Eve soon finds out that actors are very good liars because she is thrown this way and that way until another murder catches her attention. Seeming to think that both homicides are linked, Eve uses that smart brain of hers and plays a game of who-did-it?
Witness in Death gripped me from the very first page and I devoured this book! Again, Robb never fails to make me fall in love again and again with Roarke and Eve. It seems that in this book, Roarke had more of a presence. Despite being ten books into the series, Robb keeps the romantic aspect of this series solid. And countless times I feel like she is able to recreate their love that only makes it evolve and delve deeper.
The tone, while still gritty and hardass like Eve, is a tad lighter in this one. There are plenty of jokes that made me laugh out loud or smile. It makes for a perfect balance between all that death and more sensitive subjects that Witness in Death covers.
All in all, this book goes down as one of my favourites. Again.
At this rate, I’d be surprised to find a Robb book I didn’t like.
