I own almost every In Death book and have read most of this series twice and enjoyed nearly every second of it. That being said, the mystery itself was fine but the quick dialog was very off. Eve and Roarke are no longer talking in sexy innuendo but in full out crudeness. The witty repertoire between Dallas and Peabody was forced and obvious. Eve can't even manage being put out by the new jacket and boots that Roarke purchased for her. She pushes for a search warrant that a rookie wouldn't have submitted. And worst of all Eve goes to Summerset for a quickly resolved problem and neither one of them takes a shot at the other. I would believe she would have gone to Caro much quicker. I am glad I didn't buy this one. I got it at my local library and still feel cheated.
