Review 'Brotherhood in Death' by J.D.Robb
Sometimes brotherhood can be another word for conspiracy...

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.

As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.

My Review:

I’ve been a fan of J.D. Robb and the In Death series from the moment I received my first book in the series almost a year ago. I have only read three books in this series so far, but I really love them. I even consider this my favorite Crime, Romantic Suspense series!
The In Death series is a fun series, with intriguing cases and a great main character. And just like with all books in this series I read, I didn’t want to stop reading ‘Brotherhood in Death’ until the very last page.

Just like with all the other books in the In Death series, the case Lieutenant Dallas is working on is really exciting to read about. I was hooked to the pages and I really wanted to know who was behind the kidnapping and the horrible murders. It was really hard to put this book down and go to bed, because I just wanted to know what would happen next. J.D. Robb did another great job in making me wonder about the killer and what the real motive was. And as usual I didn’t see what would happen until the very last moment.

The main character Eve Dallas is just so much fun to read about. She is tough, good at being a cop and at times really funny. Especially when she is dealing with a robot who denies her something she wants. This scenes definitely made me laugh. We also get to see a more vulnerable Eve than in the previous three books. And this part definitely made me love her character even more.  
What I also really like about this series is the connection between Eve and her husband. They are so perfect together it almost makes me sigh when reading about them.

The In Death series takes place in the future, but you can easily forget that part at times because it just doesn’t sound so weird anymore. For example there are robots in the house, and there is an ‘autochef’ that can cook anything you want. I know that’s not exactly something that exist yet, but  I believe it will be something that’s possible in the near future. Although I do love futuristic reads, I love that this series doesn’t sound so futuristic that you can’t believe it, I can easily imagine myself being a part of the world of Lieutenant Dallas.

‘Brotherhood in Death’ is a really good story. It’s intriguing, exciting and thrilling until the very end. We get to see all the awesome main characters and secondary characters from the series and it’s just another great J.D. Robb book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Or the first one, since I haven’t read that one! ;)
